Nope: Jefferson wrote "the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it's natural manure." It's most commonly cited as "watered", though.
Here's the link for the quote: http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/jefferson/105.html
Yep, 'bout that time.

Absolutely right. ALL OF THEM, EVERY F*CK*NG TERM.

Sounds like a great idea and a way to vent frustration; however, if you only have one term politicians in power, then you are left with the civil servants and lobbyists who know how the gov't operates.
Scary.

Yup, just when the elected officials have learned their jobs they have to leave, but the unelected officials are there to run things as they please--that's the problem with term limits. The British comedy series Yes Minister does a good job of getting laughs out of that situation.

Are you serious, Lew? You don't think that reducing corruption in our gov't would be a good thing? Oh, wait. I forgot about your views on politics. Never mind.

Nope, I'm thinking it's gone past that for many people. It's gotten to the point where not a lot of people have the "mine is a prince" notion right now. Gonna be very ugly for incumbents come November; that is, if they get past the primaries.

Well, except for the fact that he, and people like him, just voted to take over 1/6 of the US economy and believe themselves to be superior to you in every way, thus qualified to run *your* life and oversee *your* health. Other than that, outrageously hilarious, you just can't make stuff like this up.

I think you may be right. Someone once said there was an intelligence hierarchy. * The really bright people became entrepreneurs. * The above average folks became politicians. * Everybody else was plebes, worker ants.
Now, with the economy in such straits, tens of millions of people have become entrepreneurs (think "underground economy") and suddenly became much smarter than the politicians.
This health care fiasco is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Several companies, so far, have tabulated several billion dollars in unexpected expenses (AT&T, Verizon, John Deere, Caterpillar, etc.) which means health benefits for their employees and retirees go down or prices go up. As time goes on, expect similar revelations from other companies every month as the green eye-shade types continue to add columns of numbers.

It must save you a lot of time, reducing everything to bumper-sticker slogans like that.
You don't want some govt. bureaucrat meddling in your health care, but apparently insurance industry bureaucrats deciding which tests your doctor can order, which drugs he can prescribe, or in some cases even whether you'll have insurance at all--that's okay.
I see the insurance industry weasels were claiming there was a loophole in the new law that would allow them to go on denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions until 2014, but upon reflection (and a warning from the HHS Secretary) they've decided to cover those children--how magnanimous of them. Kids with health insurance coverage--good thing, or bad thing? Gee, that's a real puzzler, isn't it?

You didn't even bother to watch the video, did you? If you did, can you honestly say you are happy that this idiot is evaluating and voting on legislation that affects *you* and the rest of the country? This yokel, along with the likes of the congresswoman who,when being shown video from the Mars Rover asked the NASA folks if it was going to go over and take pictures of the flag that the astronauts had planted in 1969 are, if not making, voting on policies that impact all citizens of the country. We deserve better than that.
