"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

He's a right wing nut...but he's very intelligent, has guts & never cuts off the mic of a caller who disagrees with him...like most of the radio cowards do.
(besides...anyone who plays Victory At Sea for his bumper music is OK in my book!!)

THE RACISM: At the Texas state GOP convention last June, one vendor sold this button asking, "If Obama is President will we still call it the White House?" Get it? Because he's black.

The subject line, providing a truly dishonest assessment of the contents within, read, "Amazing!"

THE RACISM: On their website, the Republican Women of Clifton joked that Baskin Robbins had created a new ice-cream flavor named Barocky Road, which was half vanilla and half chocolate.
