Wackorism:  Ask not what you can do for your country, but how much of a bailout it can give you!

Aphorism:  Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

Origin:  This quote is the best known line from John F. Kennedy’s inaugural speech, given on January 20, 1961 after he took office as President of the United States.  Although author Thurston Clarke, among many others, called this “the speech that changed America,” others claim that Kennedy stole the line from one of his college professors.

Meaning:  It is intended to inspire patriotism and a sense of brotherhood.
