“Neither President Obama nor the Democratic-controlled Congress seems to care for children.They favor killing them in the womb and making taxpayers fund their execution.

Staver, Liberty University School of Law.

We [Whites] Built this Country

In case you somehow missed it, TV host Rachel Maddow asked Pat Buchanan why, in his opinion, 108 of the 110 Supreme Court justiceshave beenwhite. His response? “White men were 100%of the people who wrote theConstitution, 100%of the people who signed theDeclarationof Independence, 100%of the peoplewho died atGettysburg andVicksburg, probably close to 100%of the people who died at Normandy. This has been a country built, basically, by white folks in this country,who are [sic] 90%of the entire nation, in 1960 when I was growing up,Rachel, and the other 10%wereAfrican Americans who had been discriminated against.That’s why.” Oh, thanks.
