From stand-up comedian Keith Alberstadt:
Fantasy Football is like Dungeons and Dragons for the guys who used to make fun of people who played Dungeons and Dragons.
I take part in neither. As I’ve said to the many people who suggested I join either: “I’m a geek. But I’m not that kind of geek.”

Seen on a bumper sticker:
REALITY Has A Liberal Bias
Now, humanity has a liberal bias. Most of humanity is caring, generous, kind, forgiving, and willing to accept and look past the failure of others.
Reality? Not so much. Reality is cruel, reality is harsh, reality punishes mistakes without remorse. Reality doesn’t give many second chances. Reality is the exact opposite of what could be called “liberal”.
Now, I’ll admit that it makes for a catchy little slogan. But it’s a profound misunderstanding of the world we live in. In fact, it was the “illiberal” system of capitalism that is precisely what has allowed us to blunt the harsh “conservative” nature of reality.

Hey, I’m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class. Especially since I rule.

I recently came across NoFX, a band that doesn’t exactly take a kind view towards government. One quote from a song really sums up my thoughts on the average American’s idea of freedom:
The sad truth is
you’d rather follow the school into the net
’cause swimming alone at sea
is not the kind of freedom that you actually want
—NoFX, Re-Gaining Unconsciousness
