"Glad someone brought up farm subsidies. That's surely a program that is in need of reforming. Having two-thirds of all payments going to 10 percent of the wealthiest farmers (most of whom are multi-millionaires) just isn't right."
"I believe that as years past by we will discover that President Bush was the worst president we've ever had in history. The truth has been covered up. It's all about money--who has it and who doesn't. I hope those who voted for him don't start complaining now as you can remember, you were warned."

"That thing about development authorities not having to reveal an industry until the deal is done will come home to bite us if it passes."
