I dunno, I've gotta think about it a little more, let me see which other ones the missus hates to watch...

"There is no royal road to this heavy surf-fishing. With all the appliances for comfort experience can suggest, there is a certain amount of hard work to be done and exposure to be bourne as a part of the price of success." From "Striped Bass," Scribner's Magazine, 1881.

If you're going to mention Stanley Kubrick, you can't leave out A Clockwork Orange. One of my favorite movies of all time.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio
