I mentioned a line the other day…from the movie The Magnificent Seven. Steve McQueen, the good guy, asks Eli Wallach, portraying the villan, why he rides in and ravages the small village twice a year, taking what the peasants have down to the last pinto bean. Wallach replies, “If God hadn’t meant them to be fleeced, he wouldn’t have made them sheep.”

I thought it was a good idea for the Great State Seal of New Jersey. A listener named Ralph designed this new great seal for NJ. Very apt for the relation between the government and the taxpayer.

The translation is "God made them sheep - shear them"!
