Will Rogers Quote

“Never blame a legislative body for not doing something. When they do nothing, that don't hurt anybody. When they do something is when they become dangerous.”

Ratings and Comments

Mann, Kalamazoo

Certainly true to a degree and probably brilliant at the time and place, and especially within the context it was uttered. Otherwise it's an over-broad generalization with no real bearing on reality in any society, free or totalitarian.

jim k, Austin, Tx

A perfect quote and exactly right. Another great quote is, "No man's life, liberty, or property is safe when the Legislature is in session."

Cal, lewisville

It costs nothing when they do nothing.

Rita, Richland

Always did like Will Rogers' humor!!!

Mike, Norwalk

Way too true, way too often

Liberty, arlington

@Mann, Kalamazoo. Your an idiot. You are just the type of person that is helping this country go down the tubes.
