DEFENDING THE LANGUAGE: They are NOT ‘Immigrants!’

The next time I hear someone call these people 'immigrants,' I think I am going to have a Samuel Jackson -- Pulp Fiction moment on them.  You know, something like this (the G rated version, anyway): "Say immigrant one -- more -- time!  I dare you!  I double darn dare you!"

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: Freedom of Speech and the Press

Our society no longer understands that the rights to 'free speech' and 'freedom of the press.'  One one hand, parts of our society seems to believe that these rights are unlimited, and are supposed to be without consequence.  On the other hand, parts of our society seem to believe that the right to free speech … Continue reading PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: Freedom of Speech and the Press
