"We've really reached a period in our history when we have to decide whether or not we want to become a balkanized nation, with lots of little individual ethnic and racial groups, whether we want diversity to overshadow what we have in common. In the past, our great success as a nation was our ability to take people from everywhere across the globe and make Americans of them."
Laura Schlessinger | 2001/06/05
"The once valiant women's movement that I embraced is no longer about fairness, equality, opporunity, and respect for all women - it's about the politics of selective diversity and, ultimately, of divisiveness. It is ant-female, anti-family, and anti-children."

Kellyanne Conway | 2000/10/13
"Even though women consider themselves to be Democrat over Republican by eight points, women are twice as likely (45 percent-21 percent) to describe their social and economic outlook as 'conservative' rather than 'liberal'."
Jeane Kirkpatrick | 2000/09/15
"People have often said to me, what did I do that was the most interesting thing in my life. The answer is having a baby. That was by far the most important, exciting experience of my life. Having and raising babies is more interesting than making speeches at the United Nations. Believe me."
Randall Brooks Phillips | 2000/07/21
