1. You really expect anything from this religious nutjob?

He'd push his wife in front of a bus if it saved his own life.

4. "Homeschooling for Disabled" in Haiti

Lock them in a one room hut, tie them to a chair, and leave them alone all day. I worked with a disabled boy who lived through that.

Not everyone around world, or in this country, as the $$$$$$ to homeschool their disabled kids like Pope Ricky does.

Santorum: U.N. Disabilities Treaty Would’ve Had Bureaucrats Unseat Parents

by Rick Santorum Dec 5, 2012 4:45 AM EST

The Senate made the right choice Wednesday in rejecting the CRPD, writes former senator and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

5. Let see...

1 - Santorum no longer a Senator so where was he speaking.

2 - That appears to be his wife and daughter, who is disabled.

The OP smells fishy? Someone highjack a old timers account?

6. Don't know about the photo but he's been vocal in opposition. Via Glenn Beck.


A President Santorum was and is unthinkable.
