Quotes to Prove You Are Smart

Occasionally I read other peoples blogs and its interesting how people always quote others to prove a point. I’ve been guilty of doing this myself. The thing to keep in mind when quoting people who died hundreds of years ago, is the world they lived in. For example, Thomas Jefferson said, “"Nothing is ours, which another may deprive us of." This makes sense; if someone can legally take it from me than it’s not mine. Update that to today’s world, and really it means I own nothing. If I don’t pay my property taxes, my house can be taken. In fact is there anything the government can’t take from me.

What’s my point here? Nothing really… Oh, how about, if you can’t come up with something interested to say yourself, shut the hell up.
