Moral Equivalence

Very little has changed since I wrote this piece a year ago. The day after we celebrated Thanksgiving the killing resumed in America’s abortion mills. The day after Thanksgiving ISIS is still spreading terror, and our feckless President still doesn’t have a plan to stop them. Measured responses against evil never work.
