Wisdom from Polonius

Eleanor Roosevelt

"A respect for the rights of other people to determine their forms of government and their economy will not weaken our democracy.  It will inevitably strengthen it.  One of the first things we must get rid of is the idea that democracy is tantamount to capitalism."

Herbert Hoover

"You know, the only trouble with capitalism is capitalists. They're too damn greedy."

Fannie Hurst

"Some people think they are worth a lot of money just because they have it."

Joe Weinstein

"My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to $3.00 a can. That's almost $21.00 in dog money."
