'I wanna say one thing to the American people . I want you to listen to me, I'm gonna say this again - I - DID - NOT HAVE sexual relations with that woman (Miss Lewinsky). I never told anybody to lie, not a single time - never. These allegations are FALSE and I need to go back to work for the American people.' Bill Clinton

What exactly is it that you find so stupid with this quote?

It's quite valid, are you having trouble comprehending the meaning?

There happens to be known unknowns, and unknown unknowns.

This thread will continue for decades and never nail every stupid quote.
But here's one for the ages:



"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States."

Congressional Oath


So far very few...if any at all...have upheld their end of that deal.

US Supreme Court declaring mandatory nationalized healthcare "is a tax".

No American has to pay a tax unless he does something. Now just being BORN / ALIVE means you have to pay this new mandatory Federal Tax in 2014. Even if you can't work.

America's Quadrapalegic's and mentally disabled are going to have a hard time getting $$$$ to pay their new mandatory Federal Tax.
