``You're not going out like that, are you?'' holds no power in Ohio.

WTF is wrong with a fashion reporter trashing some and lauding others. That is what fashion was "designed" for...categorizing people. So what she works in that business and favors her paying customers?

Gee, I don’t know . . . I kind of like the “old-money” style.

But after all is said and done, who really cares if you're so poor you can't afford to buy a pair of mod a go-go stretch-elastic pants?

There will come a time when you can even take your clothes off when you dance.

Wah-wah-wah-waaa a aaa aaah!

Aren't the Kennedys classic nouveau riche climbers and strivers, though? I mean, they're Irish -- Joe Kennedy's father probably wouldn't even have been let in the door of the clubs that Howard Dean's ancestors frequented.

Balfegor...Joe Kennedy was indeed the ultimate social climber 85 years ago, but that has now become old money. Only their Catholicism remains to blend the two groups together, eternally.

"The man for whose benefit so much legal and illegal manipulation has been practised is, as was each of his two brothers, one of the prominent operators chosen by the Hidden Forces that are hurling the countries of Western Civilization toward the Animal Farm world willed by Lenin and his successors . . . Only a regenerated United States can prevent this satanic Utopia from coming true. The conquest of the White House by still another Kennedy will create, on the contrary the best possible conditions for its realization. And by the same token, what is now the Enslaved World will have lost the very last hope."
