Quotes about Mark Steyn: Last month, 80,000 Americans signed on to new jobs, but 85,000 Americas signed on for Social Security disability checks. Most of these people are not 'disabled' as that term is generally understood. Rather, it's the U.S. economy that's disabled, and thus Obama incentivizes dependency.

Quote about Mark Steyn: For Al Gore and Paul Ehrlich and Co., whatever the problem, the solution is always the same.
