Pearls of Wisdom

"The U-6 number, which counts people no longer looking for work as unemployed, I think is now at 13%, and that is a number much closer to reality. All you need to do is ask yourselves how in the world can 92 million able-bodied Americans be not working, and unemployment is at 6.7%? "

"My book cover is beautiful, and the paper that we chose for the actual book is faux parchment.  The illustrations in 'Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims,' it really is a beautiful thing. I can't tell you how gratifying it has been -- and, yes, there will be more.  We can't just do one.  That'd be letting people down."

"Wildebeests. Wildebeests. That's what the Drive-By Media heard me say. No. I take it back. They did not hear me say it. They read in The Politico that I said it. Wildebeests. I compared the RINOs not defending Christie to wildebeests. They all found that amusing."

"How in the world can 92 million able-bodied Americans be not working, and unemployment is at 6.7%? Again, your average E! Entertainment network viewer, your average viewer of the HBO show Girls will not know that 6.7% is ridiculous and irrelevant. They're going to just think, 'Oh, wow, the economy's really going great now! We're creating jobs left and right.'"

"We created the equivalent of 1,700 jobs per state in December."

"The last four Super Bowl winners were the opposing team for the Philadelphia Eagles home opener that year. That means, if that holds, the San Diego Chargers are going to win the Super Bowl, because the San Diego Chargers were the visiting team for the Philadelphia Eagles' home opener this season."

"This number of people not working, labor force participation rate, is a record 92 million people. This labor force participation rate plunge equals, on a percentage basis, where we were in 1978."

"Barack Obama is Jimmy Carter's second term, if he had won."

"We have the Democrat Party telling us, 'The most humane thing we can do is continue to pay them not to work,' and when somebody suggests, 'Well, maybe we ought to start finally focusing on reviving the job market, they're mocked and laughed at and made fun of.' You know why? Because in Washington it's now considered so impossible, it's just an over the top suggestion. 'You mean jobs? That's not gonna help anybody! We can't wait for that to happen.'"

"What the people in the media don't understand is that Chris Christie probably dealt himself the fatal blow by walking the boardwalk with Obama."

"What you have now is, you have the attorney general engaging in executive actions, executive orders, just as if Obama were to do it. Stalinists, folks."

"When is the last time CNN talked about the "real" unemployment rate, folks? CNN never reports that number. They never tell the truth about this."

"My belief is that both political parties, in seeking amnesty, are looking at voter registration. Because there are many other solutions to this problem that you could do that would cost much less and would have far less cultural and societal, legal impact on the country."

"One of the things I've always said here is that the left owns the pop culture. They own Hollywood, television, music -- and they own education. So if we're ever gonna really make any inroads in reversing where we are culturally, we're going to have to make inroads in education. So that's my little effort here with this first book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims."

"Masculinity has been portrayed as the problem in America. Masculinity, male power is the reason there are so many wars. Male power is the reason so many people get hurt. Male power is why women and children are not safe in marriage. Male power equals predatory behavior. All of this was either stated directly or an undercurrent of modern feminism and there has been and there continues to be an attack on masculinity."

"This was the first program to actually discover, in 1990, male lesbians."

"Thomas Sowell is mind expansion. Sowell opens your mind up to things you didn't otherwise know, particularly about economics."

"I never believed the people who told me I didn't have the talent to succeed. I thought they were all wrong. I can't tell you why. I just always 'knew.'"
