"and why would you call it World War 1? This is cryptic. You think there will be a second world war?"
Heard another comic reference this in a skit recently. He made the comparison to introducing your wife as "This is wife number one". LOL
“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman
