JENKINS: Why isn’t UGA football better than it is?

JENKINS: Why Common Core is un-American

I recently heard a pundit opine that America was founded on the principle of equality. Really? Did Patrick Henry say, “Give me equality or give me death”? Does the Pledge of Allegiance end, “with equality and justice for all”?
