I say to the Occupy protesters - you're occupying the wrong place, you're protesting the wrong thing.
Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge, and children with special needs inspire a very, very special love.
We eat, therefore we hunt.
To reduce deficit spending and our enormous debt, you reign in spending. You cut the budget. You don't take more from the private sector and grow government with it. And that's exactly what Obama has in mind with this expiration of Bush tax cuts proposal of his.

People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation - much like building a mosque at Ground Zero.
