Thank goodness McDonald’s now is open on Thanksgiving. What would I have done for lunch?

I’m glad they can’t sell cars on Sunday. It gives me a day I can browse the lot without being harassed by a salesman.

If the CIA director can get caught, everyone can get caught. Be very careful what you say in your emails, unless you want the entire world to read about it.

Those super PACs will be the last thing on your mind when you realize what’s coming in the way of taxes for you.
