violentcrime1993

He begins with 1963, the year Bible reading was taken out. And he ends with…1993, conveniently the year when violent crime rates began to drop steadily for the last 20 years. Turns out there are four kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, statistics and every time David Barton opens his mouth.
