California: The Haves And Have-Nots

Ronald Reagan, a former governor of California, made the following remark in a speech, July 28, 1988:

“There seems to be an increasing awareness of something we Americans have known for some time: that the 10 most dangerous words in the English language are,

‘Hi, I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.’”

I guess some folks are a bit slower on the uptake than others.

Isn’t it amazing that the only people to receive cash payments for being “there” are the politicians!
