Quote Of The Week

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear." - Cicero

Antis Descend Into Anger Because They Can't Win On Facts :: 06/22/2018

USA – -( There is a generational amnesia that we must overcome. For example, if one was born too late to remember the multiple affairs of John F. Kennedy (JFK), one must study history to know about them, and that they took place in the White House, during his presidency.

Texas Self-Defense: Child Gives Mom Gun During Violent Confrontation With Father :: 06/15/2018

When I was a kid, nothing riled me up more than the idea of someone messing with my mother. While my father got “messed with” plenty, he was a police officer, and that went with the job. Besides, those people ended up in jail for their efforts. In other words, Dad could take care of himself. Mom, on the other hand, was tough enough, but she wasn’t someone who could hold her own in a confrontation. So I felt I had an obligation to protect her.
