Re: Go Easy on Dope

The root cause of the bloodshed is not guns, its money. Generally, as much as any law, corporate America restrains itself in accordance with the liability it incurs with certain business practices. However, in the past decade or so, business has [more]

Both sides in the abortion debate seem determined to avoid discussing the real issue... when does a lump of cells become a human being. The "Pro-life" says that human life begins at conception... it doe not nor does the Bible say so. The [more]

Re: Carly Fiorina's Business Record

Re: ALL lives matter
