Would Baby Charlie Have Gotten Death Sentence if Not a White Male?

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke7/24/17
Would baby Charlie have gotten his death sentence were he not a white boy? It may seem an odd question, but there’s a good reason to pose it.

So much for death panels being a myth. More » • (14 views)

Book Review: The Brothers Karamazov

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu7/24/17
by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Available for free for Kindle  •  It must be close to thirty years since I tried to read Crime and Punishment. Despite giving it the old college try, I could not get through the book.

by Anniel7/19/17
A member of our family has suffered great physical and psychic harm from a very unprofessional lying professional. At the present time I am forbidden to discuss the particulars of this harm.

Trump Jr.’s Email:  Want to Talk About Treason? Okay…  •  The obsession with Donald Trump Jr.’s “Russian” email chain is just the latest example of what the Media/Democrat Party/Establishment Axis does best: engage in misdirection to confuse people about who America’s real enemies are.
