Quote of the Week: '... whenever you drop your zipper you are taking a chance.'

"Same with kids. You may want to deny it but whenever you drop your zipper you are taking a chance. You should be ready and prepared to pay for your choices when you take chances.

"Your bad life choices or luxury item expenses are not necessarily my (or the state’s) responsibility."

—Sen. Stacey Campfield explaining how the unemployed should control their costs, in the comments section of a blog post at Nashville for the 21st Century, which is written by Sean Braisted. The original post examined Campfield’s willingness to take up a challenge to live on $300 a week for a month, which our own Daily Pulse had posited to Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey after he said unemployment benefits are an “addicting lifestyle.”
