Terrorists are Lurking!

Life, faculties, production – in other words, individuality, liberty, property – this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself?

This was a phrase used by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his first inaugural address of March 4, 1933.

Bashar Assad, continuing his repugnant depredations against his own people, men, women, and children, has just bombed them with ricin nerve gas.  A few grains of this stuff equivalent to a dusting of salt from a salt shaker will kill someone.  Just a few minutes ago (April 6, 2017 at 9:21 PM eastern time) The…
