The Supremes and The Ten Commandments
It’s okay to have a plaque of the Ten Commandments outside or around the court house, but NOT in the courtroom.
Because the Supremes don’t want to have to tear down all of their historical and majestic statues which I bet, somewhere, include some religious reference.
We really don’t want this country to become like the middle eastern countries, where the law is the Muslim religion essentially. We can plainly see that this sort of governance doesn’t work.
Still it does seem that with all of the demands that we respect the Koran that just once our own courts would kindly respect our country’s Judeo-Christian ethic.
I mean, come on, the Ten Commandments are hardly the stuff of insult. Even the Muslims, ESPECIALLY the Muslims, should mind the simple truths of the Ten Commandments.
BTK Murder Dennis Rader Pleads Guilty to Ten Counts of Murder
Saving the Kansas court system a ton of money.
The picture included with this news brief shows an almost kindly man. He is standing with his wife. Who, it is rumored, is the one begging the man to plead guilty and save his family the horrific publicity of the trial.
It’s also rumored that Rader is suffering from cancer and has refused treatment. I wouldn’t believe this right now. The man is a determined publicity seeker. This is exactly the sort of thing that he would fabricate to boost his exposure to the bask of public attention.
Now his family can all write their books and aid in the production of their Lifetime movie.
All those murders and nobody suspected a thing.
Ronald Reagan Voted “Greatest American” on Discovery Channel Poll
2- Abraham Lincoln
3- Martin Luther King
4- George Washington
5- Ben Franklin
I am hardly an expert on George Washington but he definitely should have come in first. The man gave up his life almost for this fledgling country. Not that they teach this sort of stuff in public schools or anything.
And in an era when there was no effective mass communication, Washington was greatly beloved by all of young America.
Oh, and George W. Bush came in seventh; Bill Clinton came in eighth.
