Quote of the Day
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
Love myself I do. Not everything, but I love the good as well as the bad. I love my crazy lifestyle, and I love my hard discipline.

I am proud of everything that I am and will become.
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
Speak when you are angry - and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.
Laurence J. Peter
Persuasion is achieved by the speaker's personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. We believe good men more fully and more readily than others: this is true generally whatever the question is, and absolutely true where exact certainty is impossible and opinions are divided.
It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.

The message that President Obama delivered in his speech at Notre Dame was: morality is immoral. Pro-life is the extremist position, not a moral position.
