Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (a.k.a.

(Apologeticus, 48) […]

Defiance!

7 Dec., 2018 Wilmington: Abortion-Free Zone (Redux) When ought cities and towns resist, even defy, the authority of the higher (case-in-point, federal) power?

National Enquirer Knows Something!

What is the State of the Union? How are we faring as a people? Not well, I must say.  Not until we are rid of this suffocating stench of innocent blood. Get educated!  When may one person kill another one?  Is there such a principle?  May we defend the innocents?  Don’t we send men into […]
