Remember the Clovis culture. And when will the Neanderthals ever see justice?
Big government is for those who can't handle freedom. Political correctness is for those who can't handle reality.

Gun-free zones are where the gun violence happens. Ban gun-free zones before many more get killed. Also, gun violence in Europe is as bad as in US, and getting worse.

The most bigoted people in the world insist that they are the most open-minded, the cruelest people in the world insist that they are the most compassionate, and the most illogical insist that they are the most logical.

Just because Al Gore says there's a planetary emergency doesn't mean there's a planetary emergency. And just because somebody says it's science doesn't mean it's science.

What are you talking about? In response to Tempo Gain's astonishing post, I commented on the state of contemporary Taiwan as it is visible in an exhibit being shown now. Hint: contemporary means, like, today. You know, like, now.

The aborigines of Taiwan have yet to fight off any of its colonizers.
