The Hair Cut

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he asks about his bill and the barber replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist is pleased and leaves the
shop.

When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop is happy and leaves the shop.

T he next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then, a Congressman comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill the barber again replies, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The Congressman is very happy and leaves the shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the members of our Congress.

Vote carefully this year.

War

“Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the

country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag

the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a

parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can

always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have

to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for

lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”

Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
