Another bon mot wrongfully attributed to Thomas Jefferson

But I still like it: "Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.”

I saw the quote in this post by Ted Malloch over at Gateway Pundit; however, I don't believe it has ever been found in any of Jefferson's writings.

Check over at Ace O' Spades, they have a copy of Stuff Jefferson Said (3rd edition).
That's a long ago running gag there.

The author was very insightful. But the bon mot probably continues with "and buying prepped food".

Jefferson may not have said it, but it has the ring of truth.
