“The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations.” ~ thomas jefferson
Corporations, which should be the carefully restrained creatures of the law
and the servants of the people, are fast becoming the people’s masters.
- HOBBY LOBBY July 18, 2014
“In the Hobby Lobby cases, five male Justices of the supreme court
, who are all members of the Catholic faith and who each were appointed by a President who hailed from the republican party
, decided that a huge corporation, with thousands of employees and gargantuan revenues, was a ‘person’ entitled to assert a religious

I just can’t accept anything if I don’t understand it; at least in as much detail as I’m capable of understanding. A fact is only a fact if it can be independently verified.
- Another Example of Religious Hypocrisy June 18, 2013
From the huffington post

- Unbelievable: March 22, 2013
Just saw a news report that North Dakota has passed a law that proclaims that life begins at conception. They’re wrong. Eggs are already alive. Sperm are already alive. Everyone agrees that life “began” long ago (whether you believe
in evolution or not.) It’s never ended. What they are trying to say is that a new human being ...
- Why Bother? December 20, 2012
What we need now is a ban on the sale and possession of weapons that are only good for mass murder. You don’t need a 50 caliber machine gun or a rifle that can fire 100 bullets a minute to hunt ducks or deer. If you do, you should give up hunting.
- Jefferson on Religion November 7, 2012
Jefferson had no use for religious leaders and many times in his letters made it clear religion should be a private affair and and be kept out of politics and that the only way to know a person’s true

- Thomas Jefferson To Elbridge Gerry, Jan. 26, 1799 November 4, 2012
“… I am for freedom of religion, & against all maneuvres to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another: for freedom of the press, & against all violations of the constitution to silence by force & not by reason the complaints or criticisms, just or unjust, of our citizens against the conduct ...
- The purpose to life October 1, 2012
There are 2 kinds of people in the world:
One type are those who believe that the only purpose, the only reason, the only goal in life is the pursuite of the all-mighty dollar and that the only meaningful measure of success is the dollar and how much of it one can accumulate durring their ...
