10 Ridiculous Quotes From Politicians
The Job Radio

I’m sure we have all watched the news or read an article, especially in the last couple of years, where we were shocked about what someone has said. The first thing that comes to my mind are the several crazy things said by President Trump. Anyone remember him talking about how sexy his daughter is and that he’d sleep with her if she wasn’t his daughter? I do! There are plenty of other crazy things politicians have said over the years. Let’s check them out!

1.) “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”-Then Senator Joe Biden on then Senator Barak Obama when first running for president

2.) “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.”-former White House Press Secretary Dana Perini

3.) “I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.”-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger

4.) “These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.”-Conservative pundit Ann Coulter, on 9/11 widows who were critical of the Bush administration

5.) “When the President does it, that means it’s not illegal.”-Richard Nixon, in a 1977 interview with David Frost

6.) “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”-2012 tweet by President Donald Trump

7.) “A lot of people who go into prison straight-and when they come out, they’re gay.”-Ben Carson

8.) “Outside of the killings, DC has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.”-former mayor of Washington, D.C. Marion Barry, 1989

9.) “By integrating women into particularly military institutes, it cripples the readiness of our defense.”-Delaware GOP Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell, 1995

10.) “I would hope that when a woman goes in to a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape.”-Idaho Senator Chuck Winder, 2012

Sometimes it’s funny to hear about the ridiculous things politicians say. However, pay close attention to exactly what they are talking about because they may be more than just stupid words. Words have meaning and the people who say them could have a huge effect on what can happen afterwards. Politician or not, you should always be careful when speaking. You could offend someone, say something you don’t mean, or cause a chain reaction that could lead to some unwanted consequences.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
