  1. John Jordan:

    The Swastika was originally The Swastika and ‘ The Nutzy ’ is something that has lots of layers, i certainly have sympathy – but I don’t make any apology. It is something that was misunderstood.

    The majority of students who come to us have been smitten at some point in their lives by the look and performance of vehicles; not just cars but things with wings, things that zip down rails, do young girls usually go nuts over trucks and cars? I don't know but that early exposure seems to be what ultimately drives students to our school. And I've not heard of any barriers for entry to manufacturers' studios; the carmakers would be delighted to have more women. The notion of, 'oh, she's just a woman, is long gone.'.

    Hillary Clinton embraces abortion on demand in all circumstances up until the moment of birth. Partial-birth abortion with taxpayer funding, with no notification for parents in any circumstances -- 91% of Americans say that's nuts, so what do they do, they try to shift it. The war on women wasn't that, it was contraceptives. Now listen, I have been a conservative my entire life. I have never met anybody, any conservative who wants to ban contraceptives.
