Fact and reason based 99%-er conservatives are the stabilizing influence that makes life worthwhile. Without us, you liberals would merely go to war with each other, as you do in oppressive regimes overseas.
About Fred Guenther:

Retired molecular biologist.

I seldom watch sports, but here is the all time greatest play in baseball.

 

 

Leftists claim to be well educated and up to the moment in everything, but I have my doubts that they could pass the eighth grade.

I aced this test, not because I am that bloody old, but because I was not askeep while I went to school.

Try your luck.  Leftists would pass it only by sheer luck.
