It’s sad. And I think O did this on purpose. He has devided us for sure.
Civil War two cube? Will do my friend.
The only thing conservatives have working for them is that socialism doesn't work. Centralized egalitarism will backfire, and the democrats will have to deal with the fallout caused by their pyrrhic political victories.
The best way to act is to focus on the self, family, church, and community. Increase your savings, diversify away from the dollar, and maintain your self-reliance.
The democrats' political strength is also their weakness.

Touché. I guess FDR pretty much was President for Life. Hard to see that happening for anyone else, though.
I pray not my FRiend. I pray not.
What say y'all?
And a very very nice list by the way.
I agree, starve the beast.
Yeah, it’s a mistake, but it’s the version that’s all over the internet. Now I look at it like the intentional errors map makers incorporate. It shows if folks are paying attentino. Really, the cube is just notional, so folks should just “get it” at a glance, before discovering the error.
I drew a pencil sketch, and another blogger created it, and the error was born.
