Remember: The United States is not a “Christian nation”.
The Treaty of Tripoli states that “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion”.
It was signed in 1796 at Tripoli and, in 1797, signed at Algiers for a third-party witness. It was submitted by President John Adams, soon receiving unanimous ratification from the U.S. Senate.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

This always makes me so angry. I grew up in a very religious environment, one that has a major difference from most Prodestant religions. I feel VERY strongly about separation of church and state for a lot of reasons, but I think religious people should DEFINITELY believe in it because if religion starts getting involved in state business, it won’t take long for the state to feel it has a right to govern religion. And I won’t disagree with it.
I may have posted this before.
Next time someone says the US is mostly “red”, kindly remind him/her where most of the people live. There might be better maps now but I created this over a year ago.
All areas in the USA are “real America”. Most of the people in the country, however, live in highly-concentrated cities. Those cities are mostly “blue”. If anything, the country is evenly split but an argument can be made that America is blue-leaning or center-left. With the way the conservative have been taking the republican party and keep moving the goal post, we might be even more non-right-leaning than they like to tell us.
G’wan, small fry. You pay at the turnstile, Published May 28, 1942 in PM Magazine, Dr. Seuss Collection, MSS 230.
Dr. Seuss says, “We are the 99%” in his own way back in 1942.
Yes, people should pay their fair share of taxes. How come people and giant corporations who make so much, pay so little (sometimes ZERO or even get money back)? Make it fair. Make them pay like the rest of America pays.
Dr. Seuss = awesome
