A meaningless quote.

    I liked Pat, great humor. More accurately would be: Assuming that either the left wing or the right wing or the center thereof gained control of the country, the plane would evetually crash. Freedom and liberty are on an entirely different vehicle. ;-)

    They will fly around and around in circle. Every time, they will close in around us, giving us little or no room to breath. May be one day we will choke and open our eyes. I just hope, it wont be too late!

    I always liked this one and Pat Paulsen. It is inevitable that whatever the collective consciousness is, in any given time, there will be extremes. BALANCE is what we are after, not partisan favoritism. There is no 'them' -- we have seen the enemy and it is US.

    Definition of partisanship according to the press: Bipartisan = the right caving on principals. Partisan = the right sticking to their principles. That is how the system is rigged and has been for at least 35 years. The left is never at fault for partisan politics by definition. Funny quote. Good play on words. Value in humor only.
