"Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), our third president and principal
author of the Declaration of Independence. He was a horticulturist,
archaeologist, paleontologist, author, inventor and founder of the
University of Virginia . When President Jo hn F. Ken nedy welcomed
forty-nine Nobel Prize winners to the White House in 1962 he said,
"I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent and of human knowledge that has ever been gathered together at the White House
w ith the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."
Jefferson has been consistently ranked by scholars as one of the
greatest presidents."

Thomas Jefferson could be called a prophet.

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe , we
shall become as corrupt as Europe .
Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it
goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the
world.
Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the
government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government
results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep
and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
government.
Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the
blood of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas
which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Thomas Jefferson

In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read
what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our
liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private
banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by
deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the
banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up
homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

of course. Jefferson became a widower in his thirties and never re-married. Sally Hemmings was one of his slaves who was likely tha half-sister to his wife. She was rather light-skinned, so this makes sense. DNA tests have proven that a Jefferson male was the father of one of Hemming's children, but they do not prove it was Thomas Jefferson, himself. He likely was, of course, but the answer can never be definitively proven.

I'd do Condie

It's a power thing. As president it wouldn't be a big deal, but as an elisted soldier, that would be a good one to bag. Much better than a little lieutenant

One of my dreams is to do Barbara Bush. The wife of one former president and mother of another. Score. Probably looks like pullig apart a grilled cheese sandwich
