Believe    Politicians And Politics

Houses of Commons and Houses of Lords appear to me to be fools; they seem to me to be something else besides human life." William Blake

It must be corrupt or he will not recognize it. He has only seen dried figs. He has only thought dried thoughts. A live thought or a real idea is against the rules of his mind." John Jay
