Red Skelton's Recipe For The Perfect Marriage

  1.  Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a little beverage, good food and companionship. She goes on Tuesdays, I go on Fridays.
  2.  We also sleep in separate beds. Hers is in California and mine is in Texas.
  3.  I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.
  4.  I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said. So I suggested the kitchen.
  5.  We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops.
  6.  She has an electric blender, electric toaster and electric bread maker. She said "There are too many gadgets, and no place to sit down!" So I bought her an electric chair.
  7.  My wife told me the car wasn't running well because there was water in the carburetor. I asked where the car was. She told me, "In the lake."
  8.  She got a mud pack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off.
  9.  She ran after the garbage truck, yelling, "Am I too late for the garbage?" The driver said, "No, jump in!".
  10.  Remember: Marriage is the number one cause of divorce.
  11.  I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her first name was 'Always'.
  12.  I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 months. I don't like to interrupt her
  13. The last fight was my fault though. My wife asked, "What's on the TV?"   I said, "Dust!".

"It is in the nature of democratic institutions, that they presuppose at least a minimal willingness to abide by the rules of democratic principles.  But it is extremely dangerous, either in the name of "civility" or "bipartisanship," to yield to those who seek nothing less than the destruction of democracy—a point drivin home by Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels's harsh reference to the "stupidity" of democracy, Goebbels proclaimed: "It will always remain one of democracy’s best jokes that it provided its mortal enemies with the means by which it was destroyed."

"The next Monday the class discussed socialism and capitalism. John proposed that only bees, termites and ants were true socialists and that, fundamentally, capitalists get it wrong because the one true fact about wealth was that it was finite like the material universe; and therefore the accrual of wealth did double duty as an engine of poverty."
