I loved WWE , but in the end, I was unhappy. It was just like planning an escape from a maximum security prison. I’d released a list of potential opponents online, so when the 90-day no-compete clause was up, I had matches booked on good faith. I thought about the follow-up.

Art Donovan
You can’t solve a problem as complex as inequality in one legal clause.

Money is speech. It’s incongruous to say a multimillionaire can spend as much on his own campaign as he wants, but you can only give $2,300. His free speech rights are different from yours, thus violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. It’s absurd.
Roger Stone

Jeremy Corbyn
I don’t think that if Justin Trudeau came back from the NAFTA negotiations with a new clause – ‘Oh, by the way, there’s going to be a new legislature that Americans will send members to that will pass laws that will bind Canada’ – I don’t believe Canada would ever go for that.
Andrew Scheer
