Quote #122, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?Here goes blog quote #122....

"It can be dangerous to weaken the strong in our attempts to strengthen the weak."
-Jim Rohn-

On the aftermath of Tax Day and all the TEA Parties that took place yesterday, I thought this was a timely quote by Mr Rohn.

Our leaders in Congress/ Senate and Washington have to be careful here not to overtax the business leaders and entrepreneurs who are creating jobs, creating products, services and contributing a plethora of fresh ideas. I may also add that Rohn is probably referring to the heart and soul of America as well. The everyday citizens working hard to make a living, and provide for their families. People will only pay so much before the incentive for work will start to diminish, and diminish RAPIDLY.

We've all heard the line don't bite the hand that feeds you. Even the famous Donald Trump has stated that if taxes get raised even higher in his state, he'll be forced to move elsewhere. There is a hand, that, with all his business and transactions and people he employs.. you don't want going "elsewhere".

Finally, a reminder of the old proverb..Sheep get sheared, pigs get slaughtered.

That's my view....... What say YOU?
