A legalism supporting this is called, 'silent judicial notice.' The essence of the comment may not be accurate but the result is absolute.

Justin, Elkland

This is a wonderfully succinct quote. Apathy is consent.

We need more Americans who are brave enough to speak up for what's right and remember that America was founded by CHRISTIANS and not atheists!!! Our forefathers wanted the freedom to worship God in their own way and not be told how and who to worship! Our great country can recover from what we are currently enduring! WE NEVER again should have a leader who doesn't uphold our constitution!

Bruski, Naples FL

So true in all phases of our lives.

But, especially in how we govern ourselves.

E Archer, NYC

Bruski is absolutely right.

Ronw13, Yachats Or

When things move in the Right way, nothing needs to be said !

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

Among those who are Aware, silence is the perfection of communication.
