E Pluribus Unum

 In an earlier post entitled “The Master Race” I described how Adolph Hitler’s insane racial theories led to the death of millions of people, with the European Jews suffering most severely from this madness.  I also posited the thought that the truth is exactly opposite from what Hitler believed.  True racial superiority is not to […]

Courthouse Rules

You know the real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse?

That reminds me […]

Love and Marriage
