Pearls of Wisdom

"The cookie-cutter liberal, the standard operating procedure liberal is really a giant ignoramus. I mean that seriously. They're really ignorant."

"None of the principals in any of these scandals know anything about what's going on. In Obama's case, that ends up being a plus. He has managed for that to be something that benefits him within the universe of low-information voters that vote for the guy."

"It was a phenomenon I noticed many years ago. Young people were just giving up every bit of information about themselves they could. They were violating their own privacy, seeking fame, wanting everybody to know everything about them, publishing nude photos of themselves, lewd photos, you name it. As one that's concerned about the overall culture, I happen to believe that a society's culture is a harbinger of what kind of country you're going to be."

"Everybody is making a big deal out of the fact that Douglas Shulman was a Bush appointee. Yeah, but he's a Democrat. Shulman is a Democrat."

"I really am governed here by love as I do this show each and every day. When I say these things, I mean them. I want a great country. I want people happy. This has got to be a great country if we are to continue to provide the opportunity, both economic and spiritual, for freedom that this country has always provided, more so than any other country ever. A great country is only as great as its people, and at some point people have to get serious."

"You want at least 5% of the population being serious. That five, 6% of the population carries the rest of the people. You've heard that old axiom: 5% of the people pull the wagon; 95% are in it."

"I know what it's like to not be able to go anywhere and do anything anonymously. And I'm telling you, when you lose that and you can't get it back, that's a huge regret, and there are a lot of people that want that. And I don't think it's healthy, and I think it leads to distorted values and distorted decisions that people make about their lives and a number of other things that are not healthy for them and the country the large."

"Look what feminism's done for everybody. It's just confused everybody and made most people miserable."

"When I tell you that I want a great country, I mean I want self-reliant, rugged individuals taking care of themselves and their families. That's how you get Norman Rockwell communities and neighborhoods and towns. That's how you get decency and respect and a common, valuable culture."

"Yeah, it may sound old-fashioned and it may sound like I want to go back to the fifties and the Donna Reed shows. No, no. That's not what I'm talking about. The stuff I'm talking about is timeless, and these characteristics are the things that used to be commonly taught. Honor, valor, honesty, integrity. That's all I'm talking about."

"If companies want to stay in business they're gonna have to let people go. Obamacare officials are shocked and stunned that this is happening. Actual people in the government can't believe this. They thought that the health care experience in America would be, as they said, enriched because of Obamacare. They're just a bunch of political lug heads who accept the flawed premise and promises of liberalism. And because they're good people and because they've put the program together, it's magically gonna work. Never does."

"We're just being governed by a minority. It's made to look like the majority because of their never-ending media support."

"As UnitedHealth pulls out, as Cigna pulls out, as Aetna pull out, what does that mean? It means consumers have fewer choices. That's the design. The people that really thought about this at the government, the Obamacare people, the people that really put this together with their ultimate aim in mind, intended all of this. They intended for it to be too big, too unworkable, and too expensive. They intended for all of these companies, be they businesses or insurance companies, to pull out, to not insure people, they intended this."

"Without being able to put my finger on it, I've been worried about what is going to happen to people who just dive head first into this anything-goes, no-judgment culture where there is no more privacy, and there is no concern for it, and people just want everybody to know everything about them every minute of the day -- what they're doing, what they're thinking, where they're going, when they got there, how long they're gonna be there, when they're leaving."

"The fines for not having a policy cost much less than having a policy. They want people to not have the policy. They want people to pay the fine."

"Liberals want an exemption. They set up two sets of rules: One set for everybody else, and another set for them. They never have to live by the rules that they set up for everybody else. 'Cause they're special! They're better. They're more important. The rules set up for everybody else are to handle "the masses," the bourgeois -- you know, the slow-witted, dim-witted, mindless people that are incapable of taking care of themselves. That is liberalism for you."

"Bill Clinton didn't ask Monica her name 'til the sixth date."
