    Socialist “Justice”

    Protesters demand “social justice.” I hate their chant. If I oppose their cause, then I’m for social “injustice”? Nonsense.

  • Hillary's Armor

    Hillary’s Armor

    “This vast right-wing conspiracy,” Hillary Clinton said, “has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced.” That was the “feminist” first lady’s response when her husband was accused of having sex with a 21-year-old.
