I always answer, "What if you're wrong? Will you apologize to my twenty kids and grandkids for the largest tax increase in American history?" They usually don't have anything to say after that.james inhofe

I have never heard a Java , C++, C, Perl , or Python advocate make the same claim about their own language of choice.
