“In Texas there is an old saying " Don't Mess With Texas ". They were so busy screaming that at everybody else that they stopped paying attention to what was going on right in their own backyards. When it comes to messing with Texas, I think the Texans have done a bang up job all on their own.”

“For someone so willing to damn people who are trying to earn an honest living via sales of a harmless herb, you sure seem to be willing to demonstrate your Ph.D in Psychiatry in your rush to diagnose complete strangers after what ...a matter of a few minutes??”

“This should come as no surprise. There are employers who will not admit it, but will find "reasons" for getting non GLBT's on the job. Wild charges are leveled...anything to avoid even TALKING to someone who is GLBT. Without jobs, what is so surprising when people wind up in the streets?”

“In my case, I only take non physical effect drugs to deal with PTSD and panic disorder...oh, and to stop the nightmares. I am on the maximum dosage of those drugs. I had a lovely childhood half a century or so ago. How about you?”

“I had an excellent childhood and terrific, loving, nurturing parents.
The only med I take is Crestor. If I have trouble falling asleep I might take an Ambien. That's it!”

“We are a nation with an increasingly older population with a healthcare policy that amounts to "Only the rich may live...but we're not going to research any solutions for anyone". I mean...researching healthcare solutions to help people live longer and colonize the oceans or the stars? Thats cheating.”
“At least the school district is thinking digital. Thing is... the way technology is going, in 10 years the desktop super computer is going to be shrunk down to a contact lens...complete with live digital film production and broadcast capabilities.”

“That school district will only be able to afford desktops after all their ipads fail or are lost/stolen and they are left broke.”
“What would be cheaper is a Samsung Galaxy S3. You can not only put textbooks on it, but apps for calculators, email capability for submitting homework digitally, and a host of other apps...including the ability to make telephone calls. All for a fraction of the cost of an iPad
PLUS...there are companies like CREDO which will provide the thing for a flat fee per month which includes unlimited voice, text and data usage...all while using its profits to support good causes that the user believes important ... teaching students to get involved in their community !
With the opportunity to interact with politicians, start petitions and promote their ideas for improving the nation, such a thing offers one helluva lot more than any mere "textbook" or "iPad"”

“NOBODY would make it??? He didn't ask ME! I would have walked across broken glass and burning coals for a chance to work with Soderbergh. As for the idea of doing a bio pic about Liberace ? My GODS... I would have been willing to ...well... lets just say that sex, drugs and murder would not have been out of the question...
Seriously...I haven't seen the picture and I already know its going to be nothing short of great.”

“Yes , in fact it would have been a real shot in the arm compared to the crap "movies" that get made now”
“Interesting that "Limited Government" always seems to mean "That government that only exists for millionaires and billionaires.
Pity that "Conservative" has nothing to do with "Conservation"...otherwise we would have clean air, clean water and maybe even a few roads and bridges that had been conserved instead of allowed to let go straight to the devil.
These are all serious issues which will be facing not only America, but the entire world over the coming century...but whenever the very real concept of fiscal responsibility starts to move into the area of REAL policy change...moving america AWAY from the position of being an International Empire and more towards a Nation that cares about Nation Building right here at home...from the ground up...
Republicans call that "Anti american" and "Socialism"
“As a Democrat...I urge the Republicans to jump the gun...don't bother with doing any real investigation...just act on your talking points...you claim Obama is guilty of something? Arrest him ! Do a perp walk right on the white house lawn! That'll show america just how committed your party is to its talking points !
And afterwards, at your trial for treason, you can always say that you were only acting on what Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers had accused him of. After all...these are your real masters..you should really start giving them credit.”
