    Happy Fourth of July!


    from President Gerald Ford's book "Humor and the Presidency"

    Abraham Lincoln, to Stephen Douglas during the debates:“Sir, your argument is as thin as the homeopathic soup made from the shadow of a pigeon that starved to death.”

    ++++


    President Calvin Coolidge was also known as “Silent Cal” because he spoke very very very few words. At a party, a guest made a bet for $1000, that one of them could get President Coolidge to say just three words. During the party he tried. He failed. He tried again. He failed again. The evening was coming to a close and he was desperate. He went right up to President Coolidge and said, “I have a bet that I can get you to say three words.”Coolidge looked him in the eye and said, “You lose…”I think this anecdote might also be from President Gerald Ford's book but I am not sure.

    Hunter, who is on probation for drug offenses, accidentally left his bag of cocaine in the White House library and it was found by the Secret Service. We can celebrate our two-tier justice system where some are immune form prosecution because of who they are related to.

    Ulysses S. Grant once said “I only know two tunes, one of them is ‘Yankee Doodle’ the other isn’t.

    Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the National Debt,” said President Hoover.

    When Eleanor Roosevelt left the White House to visit a penitentiary, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked where she was. She’s gone to “prison,” he was told. Clever chap that he was, President Roosevelt replied, “I’m not surprised. But what for?

    After Carter was out of office, he said “My esteem in this country has gone up substantially. It is very nice now when people wave at me, they use all their fingers.
