According to Christie, this is what The Founders had in mind when they wrote the Bill of Rights, "Hey Jefferson, don't forget to add that bit I want about assuring all citizens the right to be carriers of Black Plague! FREEDOM!"
"Look, I'm not a scientist so I can't say one way or the other if the climate is changing, I think the jury is still out on that," President Koch III expressed as he christened the new impervious dome constructed around the White House in a high security ceremony.
