How hard we fought to free ourselves from the government, now they tell us how to live , what is good and what is bad for us.The one thing they forgot to teach, that they are bad for us.

Mike, Norwalk

In a general sense - absolutely! The antithesis to the statement could be exampled by the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land and its patrons - such as Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin (for receiving the color of skin he did) and Hitlery (for what she stole)

Humility before Honor, with the sacrifice of ones own life, for the sacred cause of Liberty. A debt of gratitude for all those who serve. God Bless and Semper Fi

Beautiful! Short and sweet. Mike, in your example, the receiving of stolen goods may reward with power, but not honor.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

As it is written:

"It is more blessed to give than to receive."
