I made more money yesterday than I ever thought I'd make in an entire lifetime. But it's like somebody's going to take it all away from me and I'll be back in Texas, installing them damned irrigation wells. I didn't like that when I was sixteen. And I know I wouldn't like it when I'm eighty.

You have two choices with Obama. You either believe that he is a man of Christ... or you think he's a liar.

It's a horrible reason to like somebody.
