" Bruce Springsteen loves Barack Obama. Bruce Springsteen does not love Chris Christie. Being overtly supportive of Barack Obama might get Chris Christie his holy grail: The approval of Springsteen, even a meeting with him. Believe me — he’d rather meet with Springsteen than with Obama, or anyone else."
"The thing about not having much money is you have to take much more responsibility for your life. You can’t pay people to watch your kids or clean your house or fix your meals. You can’t necessarily afford a car or a washing machine or a home in a good school district. That’s what money buys you: goods and services that make your life easier."
"There are 20 eBay sellers and 58 websites (within top 100 returns of searching “buy twitter followers” in Google) where people can buy (fake) followers
Twitter username is used to purchase, no authentication is required
The average price of buying 1000 followers is $18
A Dealer can control as many as ~150,000 or more Twitter followers (contact@kashifrox)
A Dealer can earn as much as $800/day for 7 weeks of selling followings if they can control 20,000 fake accounts (estimated on several random fake accounts reaching 2000 followings in 7 weeks and assume each following involved a minimum $20 purchase)
In addition to selling followings from these fake accounts, there are numerous opportunities for expansion into other services: selling tweets/re-tweets to earn additional profits"
"…my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on.

I Like The Constitution So Much I Want To Change It
“I’d like to have a provision in the Constitution that in addition to the age of the president and the citizenship of the president and the birth place of the president being set by the Constitution, I’d like it also to say that the president has to spend at least three years working in business before he could become president of the United States.” — Mitt Romney, on Tuesday
Typical conservative moving the goal posts, trying to make up the rules as they go along, with everything stacked in their favor.
“… history shows that time in the money trade is more often than not a prelude to a disastrous presidency. The less experience in business, the better the president.”
How about that the president has to spend at least three years living as a low income wage earner before s/he can become president of the US?
I can’t. I can’t.
