    The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.
    It's far less bigoted than accusing a specific person of being unfit to do their job because of the nationality of their parents.

    You don't believe that there are black people and brown people who live in small towns and who own guns and bibles? I'm surprised.

    If Obama was a white man he would not be in this position. - Geraldine Ferraro
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    I love this quote. Its from Mahatma Gandhi. He ran a gas station down in St. Louis for a couple of years. Mr. Gandhi, do you still go to the gas station? A lot of wisdom comes out of that gas station Hillary Clinton

    Lets ask the questions that should be asked. Can Trump question the judges heritage when the judge is aware that Trump wants to deport illegals that are mostly Hispanic? Will the judge be impartial under the circumstances?

    I was beginning to wonder if anyone was going to try to justify Trump's comments.

    I'll paraphrase: Gary said these kind of statements were nothing new. You disagreed and said no candidates said things like this since before the 60's. Then examples were given. You then pivoted over to a new line about justifying Trump's remarks instead of saying that Gary was correct. The End.
