"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance". - JFK
"If you want to live like a Republican, vote for Democrats" - Truman
"Don't argue with stupid people. They just drag you down then beat you with experience". - Mark Twain
"Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home--but not for housing. They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing--but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it." - Truman

I don't get to watch much TV any longer. Most of the time I get is limited to late-night news.
