A Quote by Raphie on honesty, money, george washington, abe lincoln, patrick hamilton, liberty, freedom, and independence

Take note, ye honestly ambitious: we sing happily the praises of the righteous honest in our religious texts, but don't think we really believe that kind of "goodness" pays. The muses of the merry, happy "gooder" ones who rule us, George Washington, Abe Lincoln and Patrick Hamilton harmonize the tune we know speaks true truth. Liberty, freedom and independence are to be found by keeping the notes they grace us with -- the one, five and ten dollar bills -- close by the side. Disregard their song at your own pecuniary peril.

You can't change your parents, but they can change themselves. You might have to ask them though... about a million times. It's easier, of course, to sell used cars.
