Typo in the title.
Also, Geert Wilders is back in court.

I was stuttering. Typo corrected.

Gotta watch those insubordinate clauses in your writings.

I think "heresy" is too sympathetic. Call them the book burning totalitarians that they are.

btw, have you noticed Obama's apparent change of opinion on the 2nd Amendment?

Paco, Smitty -- Insubordinate clauses? "The proofreading will continue until morale improves!"

Smitty, I am in awe. You can proof read from a war zone.

Paco, stuttering can be overcome. Several viewings of "The King's Speech" and you will be able to sift thistles better than the Duke of York.

Now to the issue of hand. Ted Lapkin states the case far more eloquently than I can. The plantiffs should be have been real leaders by letting people know that the truth carries far more weight than a person's opinion. Their suit further entrenches the notion of victimhood, thereby hobbling the generations. They are proof of that. Until they see differently, the chains that bind them will remain intact.

As to Geert Wilders. The hounds will persist hoping to wear down him down. I was fortunate to hear him a few years ago. He's very strong.
