This Week In Quotes: Sept 2 – Sept 8

And given that the (Social Security) worker-to-retiree ratio is expected to fall from 3-1 today to 2-1 in 2030 (down from 16-1 in 1950) these taxes will only go up unless the government decides to kick retirees in their dentures and slash benefits. — Shikha Dalmia

(Obama) believes people are stupid, or at least not smart enough to catch onto him. …He’s going to put some things out there and dare Republicans to block it. If we agree with it, then we own it with him. If we block it, then he can blame us when the economy doesn’t get better. So he’s playing a game with this. — Jim DeMint

Obama is still suffering from the Speech Illusion, the idea that he can come down from the mountain, read from a Teleprompter, cast a magic spell with his words and climb back up the mountain, while we scurry around and do what he proclaimed. — Maureen Dowd

To paraphrase Ann (Coulter), a lot of us fell in love with Sarah Palin because of her enemies and a lot of us have fallen out of love with Sarah Palin because of her fans. — Erick Erickson

This raises a question: if the Keystone XL pipeline is approved, can we make a citizen’s arrest on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for violating the Security Act? If they were put in the back of a hot paddy wagon in DC and held for at least several hours with their hands tied behind their backs, maybe they would have a chance to think over this matter more clearly. — James Hansen

We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war. President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong. — Jimmy Hoffa

I think this fence business is designed and may well be used against us and keep us in. — Ron Paul

No, I don’t support a fence on the border. The fact is, it’s 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good. — Rick Perry

F**k the FBI and the army troops … fighting for what? Be your own man … I’ll be flying through the clouds with green. — Souljja Boy

If there is a common theme in the various rubble of cultural ruin, it’s the urge to enter adolescence ever earlier and leave it later and later, if at all. So we have skanky ’tweens “dry humping” at middle-school dances, and an ever greater proportion of “men” in their thirties living at home with their parents. — Mark Steyn

It was striking, during the Hurricane Irene frenzy, to hear the Federal Emergency Management Agency refer to itself repeatedly as “the federal family.” If Big Government is a “family,” with the bureaucracy as its parents, why be surprised that the citizens are content to live as eternal adolescents? — Mark Steyn
