Crazy old people are our entire source of polling information.
I had always thought of Egypt as a rather secular country. And I think it is, but people are quite observant of the strictures of Ramadan.
Finland is a rich country. What have they got? They got Nokia phones and plywood. How'd they get so rich? Because they're free.
Gun violence has cost us too many political leaders, and hardly ever the worst ones.
Corporate corruption has ecological merits. It's helping to preserve that species known as Democrats - thought to be endangered as recently as the year 2000.
My working hypothesis is that stupidity in popular culture is a constant. Popular culture cannot get more stupid.
Liberals consider people to be nuisances.
Liberals are always proposing perfectly insane ideas, laws that will make everybody happy, laws that will make everything right, make us live forever, and all be rich. Conservatives are never that stupid.
Neither liberal nor conservative politicians can resist the temptation to stand as mighty sequoias of rectitude amid the lowly underbrush of fundraising.
I'm a political conservative.
In its worse forms, conservatism is a matter of 'I hate strangers and anything that's different.'
I had a confused early hippie phase, which was like a cafeteria tray of sloppy, semi-Marxist thoughts, absorbed second-hand.
Lack of romance is my real objection to writing on a computer.
Writing on a computer makes saving what's been written too easy. Pretentious lead sentences are kept, not tossed. Instead of sitting surrounded by crumpled paper, the computerized writer has his mistakes neatly stored in digital memory.
I don't even know which end of a computer one is supposed to gaze into. I've never used a computer.
Mikhail Gorbachev was the Jimmy Carter of the Communist bloc. The Russians hate him.
The whole melodrama of the Middle East would be improved if amnesia were as common here as it is in melodramatic plots.
Earnestness is stupidity sent to college.
Seriousness is stupidity sent to college.
Even the most left-wing politicians worship wealth creation - as the political-action-committee collection plate is passed.
Lyndon Johnson faced some clear moral issues.
Why do elites hate the poor? It's xenophobia. They don't know any poor people - except their off-the-books Brazilian nanny and illegal immigrant cleaning lady from Upper Revolta who don't speak English.
Not much was really invented during the Renaissance, if you don't count modern civilization.
I think every high school student who was alert during the early '60s got very embittered by the slow progress and the violence surrounding the Civil Rights Movement.
Making fun of born-again Christians is like hunting dairy cows with a high powered rifle and scope.
I'm not a tech-savvy parent. I communicate with my children via the old-media format called yelling.
Each child is biologically required to have a mother. Fatherhood is a well-regarded theory, but motherhood is a fact.
Northwest Ohio is flat. There isn't much up. The land is so flat that a child from Toledo is under the impression that the direction hills go is down. Sledding is done down from street level into creek beds and road cuts.
I rarely meet a politician that I don't like personally. They are generally well endowed with charm. Therein lies the danger.
Governments have monopolies on certain things, like eminent domain and deadly force.
