In descending order, most cargoes travel by railroad, truck, pipeline, or boat; air shipping is typically used only for perishables and premium express shipments.

—William Howard Taft (18571930)
“The government of the United States at present is a foster-child of the special interests. It is not allowed to have a voice of its own. It is told at every move, Dont do that, You will interfere with our prosperity. And when we ask: where is our prosperity lodged? a certain group of gentlemen say, With us.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
“There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford administration.... The United States does not concede that those countries are under the domination of the Soviet Union.”
—Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)
