Report from the Peoples Republic of China on their New York website: "The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens' lives and personal security and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership. The U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world's civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns [and] 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun."
Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison tweet: "ALEC movement to push gov't issued ID bills was done w/ malice aforethought. ALEC supports voter ID laws.
Liberals on the economy:
President Obama blames gas prices, Europe and Congress for dismal jobs report: "As we learned in today's jobs report, we're still not creating them as fast as we want. We had high gas prices, a month two months ago, and then, most prominently, most recently, we've had a crisis in Europe's economy that is having an impact worldwide; and it's starting to cast a shadow on our own [economy] as well. We can't fully control what happens in other parts of the world...[for instance] what's going on in Europe."
Obama then blamed Congress for failing to pass his jobs bill. "Congress should've passed a bill a long time ago to put thousands of construction workers back on the job,"
Vice President Biden: "I'm here to tell you, some time in the next couple of months, we're going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: "So we've got the growth part of it figured out - if we can get the green part of it actually figured out as well."
President Obama: If you got $3000 a year extra...maybe someone will be replacing some thingamajig for their furnace.
Alan B. Krueger, chairman of Obama's Council of Economic Advisors: "It is critical that we continue the President's economic policies that are helping us dig our way out of the deep hole that was caused by the severe recession."
Representative Barney Frank: "The American economy today, of all the economies in the advanced nations in the world. . . we're doing the best and we're doing the best because we're mixing policies. Now, we've been retarded by conservative opposition."
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: "If Republicans worked with us, we could pass legislation immediately to cut taxes for small businesses, prevent student loan rates from doubling and ensure women get paid the same amount as men for performing the same work. We could provide incentives to companies to create manufacturing jobs here at home, instead of overseas. Although cutting taxes for small businesses sounds good, what Reid means is, if a small business jumps through this or that hoop, then the government will give them some money. Student loans are not doubling; but the interest might. Ensuring women get paid the same money as men is a job for lawyers, but will end up reducing jobs that women have.
The Liberal agenda:
First lady Michelle Obama on her support of gay marriage: "In a country where we teach our children that everyone is equal under the law, discriminating against same-sex couples just isn't right. It's as simple as that...For Barack and me it really comes down to the values of fairness and equality that we want to pass down to our girls. I mean, these are basic values that kids learn at a very young age and that we encourage them to apply in all areas of their lives."
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano: "We may not know exactly what Mother Nature will bring this year, but we are leaning forward in our preparations, utilizing the `Whole Community Approach. As part of this approach, we are engaging the broadest possible set of partners in our preparedness efforts - integrating planning across federal, state, local, tribal and territorial governments as well as with private sector, community, non-governmental, and faith-based partners." Notice again who said this.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, explaining the rationale behind banning large soft drinks: "We're not taking away anybody's right to do things, we're simply forcing you to understand that you have to make the conscious decision to go from one cup to another cup."
Bloomberg, defending his ban of extra-large sodas: "I look across this country, and people are obese, and everybody wrings their hands, and nobody's willing to do something about it. I would criticize the federal government for not doing anything."

Poor, stupid, Harry. Doesn't he know that wage differentials have been explained for at least two decades? Also, if he forced equal wages, especially jobs that require a high degree of manual dexterity, women would actually get pay cuts. Harry...there are single-celled organisms with more brains than you.
“The U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world’s civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns [and] 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun.”
Good reason for China or any other country to invade the US.
