Loving me some Ben Franklin on this Sat. Anyone else here love the man who never became prez?

"religion of ignorance"

Boy, do we have that in spades these days. Intelligent, successful women are "bitches," pretty women who are not promiscuous are "stuck up" or "prude," bubble-headed, anorexic, Satan worshiping whores are "celebrities" and any average female of average weight thinks she is fat.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
