* How is it that the government can’t control gasoline prices, but the weather is something they can fix?

• Are we churning out a generation of poorly educated people with no skill, no ambition, no guidance, and no realistic expectation of what it means to go to work? —Mike Rowe

• If kids knew what they wanted to be at age eight, the world would be filled with cowboys and princesses. I wanted to be a pirate. Thank goodness nobody took me seriously and scheduled me for eye removal and peg leg surgery. —Bill Maher

• Why were we told to lower our AC usage on hot days to prevent overwhelming the electric grid while simultaneously being told to trade in our gas cars for electric vehicles?

• Why is canceling student debt a good idea? Does it make sense to reward people who do not honor their financial commitment by taxing the people who do?

• Does it make sense to cut off oil, domestic or from allies, and buy it from an enemy who calls for your death?

• Are we living in a time where intelligent people are silenced so that stupid people won’t be offended?

• Is this a great description of America: Andy has left town and Barney is in charge?

• Who else had a "ministry of truth”? … Hitler… Goebbels… Stalin

• Eliminating the production of 500,000 American barrels of oil a day to buy 500,000 barrels a day from Venezuela is simply, …well, …stupid.

• Why are we running out of money for Social Security and Medicare but not for welfare, illegals and free college?

• Sign in Texas: "DON’T VOTE FOR WHAT YOU FLED!"

• Nobody called it “Toxic Masculinity" when we were saving the world.

• The most powerful governments on earth can’t stop a virus from spreading… but they say they can change the earth’s temperature if you pay more taxes.
