“Last night I saw Lester Maddox on a TV show

With some smart-ass New York Jew

And the Jew laughed at Lester Maddox

And the audience laughed at Lester Maddox too

Last week, fresh from winning the GOP nomination for Sen. Jim

Bunning‘s old seat, tea party favorite Rand Paul told a couple of interviewers that he had a problem with the Civil

Rights Act of 1964 — that is, it uses the force of law to make

restaurant? Or does the government own his restaurant?”), rather than

using the power of the Free Market and libertarian

magic dust.
