The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are. -H.L. Mencken
Sometimes I have so much to do that I don't do anything. -Thomas Sowell

Winston Churchill, many say, once said, "A man younger than 30 who's not a liberal has no heart and a man older than 30 who's not a conservative has no brain."

I am married to the most awesome man on the planet. It's true. I never believed that this kind of happiness was possible, given the state of my first marriage but he is one in a million, my husband. And I adore him just as much as he adores me. Ours is an interesting relationship, growing and changing as we do. We're friends first and everything else falls into place behind that.
Jabamba is as bright as a button and as sharp as a blade. If there's ever anything you need to know, Jabamba is the person to ask. Chances are she will know the answer already. If not she will go and ask someone else and she will keep asking until she gets an answer. Jabamba simply cannot stand the idea of a question that has no answer, so if she cannot get a satisfactory explanation she will invent one. A good one. She is after al,l as bright as a button. There are, though, some questions in life which are best left unanswered. The rest of us know to leave them alone. Jabamba cannot resist the urge to explore them. She is drawn to such questions, like... well, like a button to a button hole! Jabamba answers these questions cleverly because, after all as sharp as a blade, but then you know what they say about people who are too sharp...
Jabamba can be very cutting sometimes. She doesn't mean to be. She just can't help it. Jabamba can't stop herself from daring to say what other people hardly dare to think. This is why Jabamba often gets herself into trouble but it is also why Jabamba is such an interesting person to know. Life with Jabamba is never dull. There's always an adventure, a challenge or a deal to be done. Jabamba loves to do deals. The word 'no' is not in her vocabulary. When she hears it Jabamba is immediately tempted to reply "Is that 'no' as in 'maybe', 'no' as in 'I need to be persuaded,' or 'no as in 'not quite yet?' Luckily Jabamba gets clean away with this kind of attitude. Jabamba, at least when it comes to the unanswerable question, is living proof of the old adage "Who dares...wins".
