P. J. O'Rourke
After the $700 billion bailout, the trillion-dollar stimulus, and the massive budget bill with over 9,000 earmarks, many of you implored Washington to please stop spending money we don't have.

I do watch a lot of Fox News. I like Charles Krauthammer and Bill O'Reilly.
Mary Tyler Moore

I'm still very connected to my family, to the world I grew up in. I understand what it means to be afraid that you can't pay a doctor's bill.

It was how I lived until I was well into my adult years.
The Framers of the Bill of Rights did not purport to 'create' rights. Rather, they designed the Bill of Rights to prohibit our Government from infringing rights and liberties presumed to be preexisting.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
