  • Students Hate Quotes From Trump’s State Of The Union, Until Realizing They Are Obama’s

    Breitbart ^ | 2-4-1018 | Ben Kew
    Some students reacted negatively to quotes they believed were from President Donald Trump’s recent State of the Union Address, until realizing they were actually quoting Barack Obama. Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips spoke to students outside John Jay College in New York City, who unanimously criticized the supposed Trump quotes, describing them as “warmongering,” “aggressive,” and “immature.” The quotes, taken from some of Obama’s State of the Union addresses, included threats to destroy the Islamic State, statements of America’s military strength, and attacking China’s economic policy. “Well, first off, ISIS is fake,” replied one man. “It’s something the government made up...
  • Quotables: A closer look at Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission's toll-jacking

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | January 7, 2018 | Tribune-Review
    Motorists frustrated by the unending cycle of toll increases by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission can take some comfort in a performance audit of the agency announced by state Auditor General Eugene DePasquale. The latest increase, effective Sunday, boosted tolls 6 percent; it's the 10th consecutive increase in as many years. Mr. DePasquale said the audit will examine the Turnpike Commission's assertion that traffic will increase despite increased tolls. It will also look at the turnpike's annual payments to PennDOT and the commission's process for awarding construction contracts. Given the increasing toll on motorists' wallets, a closer look at turnpike operations...

    CNN tweeted out quotes from notable Americans for the Fourth of July. Here was one of the quotes they tweeted from Abraham Lincoln: "Let the people know the facts, and the country will be safe"-Abraham Lincoln The quote, which is also displayed at the Newseum, was interpreted as yet another attack from the media giant against the president.

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 13, 2016 | Alyssa Canobbio
    Bill Clinton sat down with CBS’s Charlie Rose on Monday evening and said that Hillary Clinton “frequently” faints because of dehydration, but the word “frequently” was edited out of that night’s broadcast, TMZ reported. In a longer version of the interview that aired Tuesday on CBS This Morning, “frequently” was not removed. (snip) “When you look at the collapse, that video that was taken, you wonder if it’s not more serious than dehydration,” Rose said to Clinton. “No, no. She’s been—well, if it is, it’s a mystery to me and all of her doctors. ‘Cause frequently—not frequently, that’s not—rarely, but...

    The Week ^ | 2/21/16 | Becca Stanek
    Jeb Bush has finally put his presidential campaign out of its misery. But it wasn't so long ago that Jeb was widely seen as the candidate to beat in the Republican presidential primary. Pundits predicted that Bush was almost as inevitable a nominee as Hillary Clinton was. Commentators cast Bush as the Republican Party's best chance at leaving Clinton shaking in her boots. Between his "rock star name" and the gusher of money he had flowing into his campaign before even announcing, Bush was thought to have the nomination nearly at his fingertips. Then reality intervened. The former Florida governor...

    I have found that the site Replace smart quotes with regular straight quotes fixes the problem Free Republic recently has with quotes and dashes. For example, a New York Times article As Germany Welcomes Migrants, Sexual Attacks in Cologne Point to a New Reality that when originally pasted looks like this: COLOGNE, Germany — In early December, the Cologne police made their New Year’s Eve preparations. Drawing on the previous year’s experience, they identified their biggest worry as pickpocketing and fireworks among the crowds. So they increased their holiday deployment, to 142 from 88, concentrating on the banks of the...

    1) "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money." -- Margaret Thatcher 2) "It is the common error of Socialists to overlook the natural indolence of mankind; their tendency to be passive, to be the slaves of habit, to persist indefinitely in a course once chosen. Let them once attain any state of existence which they consider tolerable, and the danger to be apprehended is that they will thenceforth stagnate; will not exert themselves to improve, and by letting their faculties rust, will lose even the energy required to preserve them from deterioration.
