Quotes

"The owner would determine the winner," Keegan says. "Or at least, he would throw out one of the groups."
Unencumbered by the truth, Nancy Pelosi famously told us about the secretive, 2,400- page bill: "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it." Democrats viewed ObamaCare as the magic elixir. The rest of us viewed it as an unnecessary suppository
Jefferson was actually for smaller government, less debt and low taxes. About eight years after his two terms as president, Jefferson wrote: "We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers."
"Me and my boyfriend Matt, we ride on the ferris wheel every year, so that's fun,” says Lori Gallman. “Our little first date was on the ferris wheel, so we get to have a little fun on the ferris wheel."
