Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler Hitler was the lever that allowed the US, after his death, to gain access to the wealth of almost any country in the world. The US became every country's big brother, protecting them from big bullies (even if the big bullies happened to be their legally elected leaders, as Hitler was). Of course, there was a price for the US--pay off the Big Jews. Give them a country, give them money, give them weapons, give them unconditional support. Pay the protection--we saw what happened to Hit...

War The Great Funeral

Human life has been taken and all human life is precious. Those we have killed we should mourn for along with those of ours that have been killed. The ...

Our concept of a bill of rights is American in origin The prior existe
Our concept of a bill of rights is American in origin. The prior existence of the English Bill of Rights tends to obscure this fact. Except for the name, the two have very little in common.

In this sense, the Virginia Declaration of Rights of 1776 was the first modern bill of rights, since it was the first to use a written constitution t...
