• “It is my information that one in every 11 of the white people that live in Alaska are on the Federal payroll. Business is not brisk up there. There are some fisheries there and some mining, but we are spending $11,000,000 a year so I think the best line of endevour that there is in Alaska is to get on the Federal payroll. Now I presume it is unconscious, but a condition of that kind would stimulate an activity on the part of those that aren’t on the payroll to criticism of those that are, in order that a change might be made to their advantage, so that whenever there are protests against Federal officers up there they have to be viewed with that in mind.” ~Calvin Coolidge, The Talkative President

They belong to the unseen world.” ~President Calvin Coolidge

With them nothing is natural, everything is artificial. … They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation, which sooner or later impairs their judgment.” ~Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
