Jefferson’s 10 Canons for life redefined for the modern world.


  1. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
    Just forget about it and the problem is solved. 

2. Never trouble another for what you can do yourself.
Blame everyone else for your problems.

3. Never spend money before you have it.
 Charge enough that there is no way to pay and then declare                                                  bankruptcy.

4. Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap.
You deserve it, buy anything you want, see # 3

5. Pride cost us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
 My discomfort  was caused by others and my discomfort should be                                  everyone’s discomfort.

6. We never repent of having eaten too little.
  Ha Ha Ha

7. Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
Everything is okay, “Just Do It.” Standards of behavior are for                                         others.

8. How much pain have cost us, the evils which have never happened.
Listen to the media to calm your fears and get a realistic view of                                      the world.

9. Take things always by their smooth handle.
Never compromise even when it makes sense.

10. When angry count ten before you speak; if very angry  100.
Use a calculator or your phone timer because you never learned to                               count to 100.


About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
