Why don’t we vote the atheists off the island?

Christians are called to evangelize. What gain can come of mocking atheists?

Everyone knows it is Stalinist progressives, not Christians, who infest our universities like maggots on a carcass. Everyone knows that they are a cultural cesspool, and meant to destroy the freedom of inquiry so painfully erected by Western civilization for 2,000 years.

If the GOP had any common sense at all, it would approve President Obama’s DREAM Act. Every month 50,000 Hispanic children turn 18 in the U.S. Taxpayers have paid for their education. Shouldn’t we cash in our investment in these children?

The real reason Mitt Romney lost: He was going to get U.S. citizens back to work. Of course, that upset the Democratic liberals, because they would have to go to work. And why should I have to work if the government will give it to me?

It’s funny how Republican accusations about Obama wanting to cut Medicare immediately changed to demands that he agree with Republicans about cutting Medicare as soon as the election was over.

First, the Republicans drive off the “ideological cliff” and now they’re sending the country over the fiscal cliff. They blindly follow Grover Norquist to their demise. Sweet.

If we go over the fiscal cliff, Obama will be so upset he’ll take Air Force One to Hawaii and sulk on the golf course.

Obama said Romney flip-flopped, and the left-wing lemmings repeated it ad nauseam. Obama last year was for leaving tax rates alone and eliminating tax deductions. Now he’s flip-flopped to changing the tax rates and not the deductions. Hypocrite.

Since the Bush tax cuts took effect, we have all been “takers” – including big businesses that have benefited from massive tax breaks. We all need to take a step back from the trough.

It was offensive for Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts to turn their backs on Sen. Bob Dole and his mission to liberate the disabled. They will never achieve the venerated position of Dole.

If Syria’s Bashar Assad uses chemical weapons against his own people, it will be a mistake that he will die to regret.

Dear media: When you tell a story about single moms, please tell us where the father is. Is he dead, in jail or does the mother even know who the father is?
