I can go off on the incomeptency of our government.  It is well documented on here that I am not a fan of your president.  I also don’t trust the government–their intentions, their thoughts, their actions, their knowledge, their common sense.  They DO NOT know what is best for you or me.  However, I enjoy studying history.  I don’t waste much time on sleep, so I watch a lot of history channel shows, animal shows and read crap on the internet (real stuff, not worthless blogs–this particular blog is completely worthwhile, as you might learn something).

    My favorite characters in U.S. history are Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.  These dudes had it going on.  Both were obviously loaded with common sense.  When you find yourself wasting time on the internet, look up the quotes that are attributed to these two statesmen and possessors of great knowledge.  They understood the value of a dollar, work ethic, and the importance of agriculture and religion.  

Two of my favorite quotes are from Benjamin Franklin.  

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.  Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”

“Beer is proof that GOD loves us and wants us to be happy.”


Thomas Jefferson looks like he was looking into a crystal ball into the year 2013.

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

“The beauty of the 2nd amendment is that it won’t be needed until they try to take it.”

And the Kelln household favorite,

“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work the more I have of it.”


I’m also a fan of the money that they are pictured on.  Now, that you have read this, I challenge you to google quotes by these guys.  Read them, think about them, learn from them.  

p.s  Just for fun, read some of Winston Churchill’s quotes.
