Veritas et Sapientia-What Do Conservatives Want?

Mandeville, LA - "[A] final observation.

Honey Boo Boo Nation Undermines Gentlemanly Society To Our Detriment

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - The never-ending quest that we seem to be embarked on for equality is antithetical or anti-nature at its core. There is no equality. This holy grail that we seem to be possessed of, that everyone likes to run around and prattle on about their rights and “We’ve got to have equality.” Why? Nature is not in balance, it never is.
