“For years we’ve courted the public on passing anti-abortion laws and they spurned us. We’ve grown so frustrated that the way we felt on these issues wasn’t being returned, we had to do something about it or we’d burst so we just grabbed the best looking bills we could find and thrust our legislation into them.”

The Hollow Men Triumphant?
The marriage of the white power structure in the South with greed-obsessed businesspeople has borne such “children”. In both cases, there is the mentality of the elitist, those who believe not only that they are superior because they are white and male but that this also entitles them to all that they want for themselves, especially when it comes to money and power.
James Gandolfini played the iconic Tony Soprano but should also be remembered for the other wonderful characters he played in his tragically short life and the great work he did to help our veterans. Pick your favorite tunes from the show and tunes from some of the other classic American mob movies.

High flying or grounded? The Superman Mythology hits the Big Screen one more time with enhanced gravity and gravitas.
Year after year, decade after decade, wars march on. As Creedence Clearwater once said so wonderously, Who’ll Stop the Rain? With our nation poised upon the brink of yet another military action in the Middle East once again we must shout out for peace. We must sing to the highest […]
