..and 40 years afterwards , we elected one !!
Norm, your solution would solve many of the country’s problems, but do they listen to you...........NOooooooooooo!
Hey!, Crosses, Ten Commandments and any other symbol of our culture are coming down all over the place. Your idea of the burka may not be too far off, and it’s in New York, so you know they are liberal enough to do it, if nothing else to show “diversity”.
Nobody loves a Prophet ;)
It’s a poem, not law you liberal morons.
Yearning to freeload you mean.
