Shots Fired: 9/22/10

"Regarding the policies of the current government, the governed do not consent" ... "An arrogant and out-of-touch government of self-appointed elites makes decisions, issues mandates, and enacts laws without accepting or requesting the input of the many." –“The Pledge to America”, the new Republican manifesto, being rolled out tomorrow at a Virginia hardware store.

“So Andrew, for the first time in your life be a man. Don't hide behind daddy's coattails even though he pulled strings to advance your career every step of your way. Come out and debate like a man.” – NY Gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, ‘inviting’ opponent Andrew Cuomo to debate.

“We were big before we started adopting sophisticated procedures to be sure we met all of the government requirements,” he said. “While we were big, but still acting like we were small, we got into trouble with government requirements several times.” – Jack DeCoster, owner of Wright County Egg, one of two egg farms behind the salmonella outbreak this year which caused some 1600 people to become ill.
