Re: Dwight Eisenhower

A man of his times, I suppose. You'd be hard pressed to find any leader in any industry or political party who didn't say and do likewise.

Re: Dwight Eisenhower

And I agree with most of what you've said here too. And the Democratic Party HAS moved to the left, but not as far to the left as the Republican Party has moved to the right. The current Republican Party is now run by the folks that Eisenhower, [more]

Re: Dwight Eisenhower

Re: Islamic Diversity

The TMF Atheist Board must have racked up some Frequent Flyer miles this week.
