Another Reason I Love Chesterton...

...He always hit the bulls eye.
“It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged.”
 (from his 1921 American tour to the Cleveland Press)
A related quote applies to our "unhanged" politicians  (No, I didn't say unhinged, but that is probably true as well.) who, if truth be known, are our own aristocracy.
“The real argument against aristocracy is that it always means the rule of the ignorant. For the most dangerous of all forms of ignorance is the ignorance of work.”
 So now we know why Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, and other career politicians are such ditzes! They've never worked a day in their lives (unlike mothers who are as industrious as honey bees working their hives).

Read Chesterton. He really is the Apostle of Common Sense.

Well, as a grandmother I can vouch for that. I am still busy as a beaver after retirement crocheting, knitting, sewing, making jewelry, Rosaries and chaplets for family, friends and myself, along with babysitting, house cleaning, cooking and gardening. I was brought up reading the Book of Proverbs. You know? "Go to the ant thy sluggard and consider her ways." Ants, as the Bible implies, are very industrious, and the Lord wants us to be so too. As for some politicians, they like to keep people on the dole and relying on government to keep themselves in office. They also like to make up unnecessary laws, such as "hate crime" to keep themselves in office. If a person murders people of the same race, etc., because they do not like them, all is needed is that they are charged with so many counts of murder and punished accordingly if they are convicted, but politicians like to make things complicated instead of simpler. Some of them like to keep us envying each other and fighting, too. It makes people "need" them which keeps them in office and loaded with money.
