Hi, this is Grace, AKA Rivkasmom. :-)

Ecclesiastes 10:2 "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."

If you want to discuss race issues with me, please read this FIRST: and

"Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout "White Power!" - when nobody will shout "Black Power!" - but everybody will talk about G-d's power and human power." ~Martin Luther King Jr."

“I know of no rights of race superior to the rights of humanity…The more men really know of the essential nature of things, and on of the true relation of mankind, the freer they are from prejudices of every kind." ~ Frederick Douglass

A few thoughts about political debate:
1. “The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
2. “The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.”
3. “When I disagree with a rational man, I let reality be our final arbiter; if I am right, he will learn; if I am wrong, I will; one of us will win, but both will profit.”
4. “We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”
5. On bailouts: “Government "help" to business is just as disastrous as government persecution... the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.”
6. "Evil is made possible by the sanction you give it. Withdraw your sanction."
~Ayn Rand

“Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.”
~Thomas Mann.

and finally:
“When bad ideas have nowhere else to go, they emigrate to America and become university courses.”
~Frederic Raphael
