"Politictians are like diapers; they have to be changed regularly."

"Many years ago an old man told me not to do two things: smoking cigarettes and giving my hard-earned money to the state by way of buying lottery tickets. I passed that info down to my kids and they also believe today that smoking and the lottery are stupid bad habits. The price of tickets will go up because there's always going to be people that need to be entertained with gambling."

"Don't wait for some big corporation, or worse yet, the government, to make use of solar power. I bought a commercial solar oven for under $200 and Arizona is the perfect place to use one year 'round. I have baked, roasted and even steamed foods in it during every month of the year. My kitchen oven stays off and my A/C doesn't have to work harder to cool a hot kitchen. At least for now, sunshine is free, although I'm sure bureaucrats at the city, county, state and federal level are working feverishly to put and end to that."

"Watching a documentary of Ruby Ridge, I was reminded why we need to stand vigilant in protecting our 2nd Amendment rights. The U.S. government made a criminal out of a law-abiding citizen who believed in the Constitution, then succeeded in killing his dog, shooting and killing his 13-year-old son (shooting him in the back) and killing his wife."
