Quote of the Week

I was reading the Wall Street Journal and came across an interview with Roger Ailes.

He is known as the president of Fox News Channel and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group.

Roger is from the old school - Shirts, Ties, and Business as Business. Here was his take on modern times:

"The problem with most people who don't suceed is that they see options. It's the way I was brought up. I dug ditches, I put in sewer pipe, I put in guardrail. When I was18, my dad looked at me and said, "Where are you going? You can't live here...Are you going to go in the sevice? You want me to put your name in up at the shop? Try to go to college!

So I went to a cheap state school so I could work three jobs.

When you don't see options you don't give up easy. The real problem with our society is we've taken the word responsibility and turned it into entitlement, and we sit around thinking that that's an option. "

Nuff Said!
