I stand firmly behind all rights the gubment sees fit to gimme. Those rights that I need, I take anyway. Just with an eye open for that gubment.
The trick to keeping the greedy-greedies away is to not look tasty enough for them to check me out. I'm poor. I look it, too. But...
An unhappy rich man isn't as rich as a happy poor man. I'm happy and so poor that I'm rich. (Ha! A paradox, eh?) I have everything I want (except one very desirable one... but that's my choice.)

Little girls with firearms? Well, yeah, I guess. But:
I had fallen in love with Jessica Dubroff. I had followed some of Her flights. I was too busy to catch Her news until a day later. Just like Her father, I wasn't thinking about things fucking up.
