Deep breaths are very helpful at shallow parties.
In fact I was one of the few trusted people that Lucy allowed to play with their kids. I spent time at their summer home rode horses at their ranch and swam at their beach house. I even spent a Christmas with them at Palm Springs one year.
I love Halloween trick or treating and decorating the house. And I love Thanksgiving because of the football and the fall weather. And of course I love Christmas - that's my favorite of all!
You can't allow the forces of political correction to shut you up. I mean why are people afraid to say 'Merry Christmas?' Give me a break. If people don't like it yeah they can go do something else.

Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.
Women are considered deep - why? Because one can never discover any bottom to them. Women are not even shallow.

I saw what happened when a dictator was allowed to take over a piece of a country and the country went down the tubes. And I saw the opposite during the war when America joined the fight.
For far too long we've allowed the other side to paint us as racist as sexist inhumane war mongers - well today as a conservative black Republican and former solider I'm here to set that record straight.
I have a scheme for stopping war. It's this - no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one.
Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure.
