Quotation of the day

"The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we
spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China. If we spend it
on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India.
If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and
Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany. If we
purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the
American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to
spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still
produced in US. I've been doing my part, and I thank you for your help!"

Eliot Spitzer (former Governor, New York)

Jack Nicholson in the film Easy Rider talks to Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda about visiting ladies of leisure in Texas and when he feels they are reluctant he adds:"This aint ordinary beef, this is US prime.""
