High School Boys.

I grew up in an area with a couple of Catholic schools, (that went to at least 8th grade), 5 public elementary schools, a public Jr., (7th &8th grades),  H.S. and a LARGE public H.S. Yes, the single largest “ethnicity” in town was people of Italian, (or at least Mediterranean*), heritage.  For the most part,

“The Government That Governs Least….”

An “all taxation is theft” and “No government is the best government”. The second part is a derivation of “The government that governs best is the one that governs least”.
