People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist
I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a ‘Sam the Jew’ or ‘Jose the Mexican’ – but we didn’t think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don’t want to be politically correct
We’re all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything
From everything I’ve seen, it looks like the era of big government spending is back
I don’t welcome that at all, but I could see how it’s possible it may happen
I’m concerned that we may end up having to do that, at least for a short time
Too bad he and his counterparts didn’t show this much concern while they were helping us get into this mess in the first place.

There is no substitute for the United States
Let me guess, he too wants a bailout?
This measure is not bipartisan. It contains much that is not stimulative

Today, Owens was asked if the stimulus package would be able to stop the 22,000 layoffs at his company.
I think realistically no
The truth is we’re going to have more layoffs before we start hiring again
You know, I don’t remember exactly what Joe was referring to, not surprisingly
I think what Joe may have been suggesting, although I wouldn’t ascribe any numerical percentage to any of this, is that given the magnitude of the challenges that we have, any single thing that we do is going to be part of the solution, not all of the solution
It’s going to get worse before it gets worse
