Understanding the Government

Many times when you want to understand how a company operates, it is good to look at an organization chart.

The same is true with our United States government. Recently a good friend sent me such a chart, and it demonstrates plainly how the government works.


l enjoy political cartoons, and I copied the one below which was done by Charlie Daniel who is a graphics cartoonist for the Knoxville News-Sentinel.Angry Conserative  Mr. Daniel is a very gifted artist.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Never underestimate the power
of stupid people in large groups.
(The Senate & House of Representatives are large groups.)

Einstein said “Only two things are infinite,
the universe and human stupidity,
and I’m not sure about the former.”

Quote of the Day
You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

Joke of the Day

More Suth en-ism's

Only a  Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you  don't "HAVE" them, you "PITCH" them.

Only a  Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas,  beans, etc., make up "a  mess."

Only a  Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction  of "yonder."

Only a  Southerner knows exactly how long  "directly" is, as in: "Going to town, be back directly."

Even  Southern babies know that "Gimme  some sugar" is not a request for the white, granular  sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the middle of  the table.

All  Southerners know exactly when "by  and by" is. They might not use the term, but they know  the concept well.

Only a  Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a  neighbor whose  got  trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold  potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they also  know to add a large banana puddin!

Only  Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near" and "a right far piece."They also  know that "just down the  road" can be 1 mile or 20.

Only a  Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a  redneck, a good ol' boy, and po' white trash.

No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.

A Southerner knows that  "fixin" can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb..

Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines, .. and when we're  "in line," we talk to everybody!
