November 4, 1879. Died August 15, 1935.
American actor and humorist.
don't make jokes. I just watch the government and
report the facts.
spending? I don't know what it's all about. I don't
know any more about this thing than an economist does,
and, God knows, he doesn't know much.
no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole
government working for you.
is not a man in the country that can't make a living
for himself and family. Bur he can't make a living for
them "and" his government, too, the way his
government is living. What the government has got to
do is live as cheap as the people.
you make any money, the government shoves you in the
creek once a year with it in your pockets, and all
that don't get wet you can keep.
account of us being a democracy and run by the people,
we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a
government four years, no matter what it does.
Diplomats are just as essential to
starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it....
You take diplomacy
out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week.
Be thankful we're not getting all
the government we're paying for.
