Well I believe that the Wet Feet Dry Feet Act (circa 1994) was a great way to show that their is some immigration justice to this world.

Horse Slaughter in the U.S. was so much better for the horses, a quick pin through the brain and it was over. Now, they're either starving to death in dirt lots because no one can feed them, or they're being shipped to Mexico or Canada....

Abortion is in no way right because its morally wrong I cannot see any reason for abortion ever. If someone doesn't want a kid they shouldn't get pregnant because taking a human life is just plain wrong. If you drown a pregnant woman it counts as a double murder so obiously a fetus is a person....

Freedom of speech is something that we the citizen of the US get to have as it states in the 1st a...

Willoweed

To be depended on for accuracy and honesty Propaganda 1. information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc. 2. the deliberate spreading of such inf...
