Quote of the Day 1/18/11

Posted January 18th, 2011 by jallen

“The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt, are indications soliciting the employment of the pruning knife.”

-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Spencer Roane, March 9, 1821

Does this apply today? If so, what is the “Pruning Knife” and how would it be “employed” without violent consequences as the quote lends easy imagery to assume?
