    # You need to register to vote, unless you are on welfare. If you are living off the efforts of others, please do us the favor of sitting down and shutting up until you are on your own again. To the welfare class I say that we're taking care of you we would appreciate if if you would just stay out of our way so we can get the job done.

    # When you do vote, your votes for the House and the Senate are more important than your vote for president. The House controls the purse strings, so concentrate your awareness there.

    # Liars cannot be trusted, even when the liar is the president of the United States. If someone can't deal honestly with you, send them packing.

    # Don't bow to the temptation to use the government as an instrument of plunder. If it is wrong for you to take money from someone else who earned it -- to take their money by force for your own needs -- then it is certainly just as wrong for you to demand that the government step forward and do this dirty work for you.

    # Don't look in other people's pockets. You have no business there. What they earn is theirs. What your earn is yours. Keep it that way. Nobody owes you anything, except to respect your privacy and your rights, and leave you the hell alone.

    # Speaking of earning, the revered 40-hour workweek is for losers. Forty hours should be considered the minimum, not the maximum. You don't see highly successful people clocking out of the office every afternoon at five. The losers are the ones caught up in that afternoon rush hour. The winners drive home in the dark.

    # Free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech, by definition, needs no protection.

    # Finally (and aren't you glad to hear that word), as Og Mandino wrote,

    1. Proclaim your rarity. Each of you is a rare and unique human being.

    2. Use wisely your power of choice.

    3. Go the extra mile ... drive home in the dark.

    Oh, and put off buying a television set as long as you can.

    Class dismissed.
