Grazing Reserves Proposal is evil and should never become law

Funny but true quote from Robert Mugabe

Treat every part of your towel nicely because the part that wipes your buttocks today will wipe your face tomorrow. -Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe

Robert Mugabe

Robert Mugabe certainly has a way with words. Tell me what he said here isn’t true. To me, the proverb means that one should treat everybody fairly, because, no matter how low someone may be in class, money, etc, you may need the person tomorrow.

I remember a story I once read about a very wealthy man who was stuck in the desert Continue reading “Funny but true quote from Robert Mugabe”
