    Default Wise or not

    You worry about Liberal versus Labor, Green, etc.

    Well, relax. Here is the real problem.

    .

    In a university tutorial, the qualifications needed to be Prime Minister were being discussed.

    It was pretty simple, in that the candidate has to be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age..

    However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen.

    In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming Prime Minister.

    The class was taking it in and letting her rant, but all of their jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating:

    "What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by Caesarean Section?"

    ( These are the same sorts of people who are eligible to vote in our elections!

    They breed, go to Uni. and walk among us! )




    When Wise People Speak:



    Modern slaves are not in chains, they are in debt.



    No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells all.



    If a man expects a woman to be an angel in his life, he must first create heaven for her. Angels donít live in hell.



    I donít trust anyone whoís nice to me but rude to the waiter. Because they would treat me the same way if I were in that position.



    Donít trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar.



    A ship is always safe at shore, but that is not what it is built for.



    A smart person knows what to say. A wise person knows whether to say it or not.



    Many people think that patience is a sign of weakness. I think this is a mistake. It is anger that is a sign of weakness, whereas patience is a sign of strength.



    Any fool can know. The point is to understand.



    I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.
