Voices of the Past


Sometimes if we want to look at the Road Ahead we have to listen to the Great Voices of the Past.....

So my son and I play this game....."What would a Great Leader say about Today's Mess ?"
We obviously are talking about the Buscho Regime, but we ponder What Real Leaders would have said about this Titanical Administration. We also look up quotes to attempt to back up our thoughts.

So today here is some Wisdom of President Lincoln for you..... IF you have some great Lincoln Quotes we would love to hear them.....

"Fearlessness for the Right is a better thing than Fearfulness for Peace"
( I doubt that the Terra Mongers would appreciate this quote)

"Character is like a Tree, and reputation is like it's shadow. The shadow is what we think of it-the real thing is the Tree."

( about Campaign Attacks)
"Every foul bird comes abroad, and every dirty reptile rises up".

"Would you have voted for what you felt to be a lie?"
( kind of interesting in our day and age...would Lincoln have voted for the Iraq War, I don't think so.....)

"He who has the right to criticize who has the heart to help".
(Compassionate Conservatives believe they don't have to "help"...but they do have to Criticize....)

(about Crisis)
"I pass my life in preventing the storm from blowing down the tent, and I drive the pegs as fast as I can."

(about Cowardice)
"To Sin By Silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."

E4E..go to the Blogger Help section and email them with the problem. They are the only ones that might know what's up and how to fix it.

Omnipotent Poobah was having similar problems which is why he left Blogger and got his own domain.

I had a h*ll of a time when I switched to the new blogger and I'm glad that I haven't had any trouble since.

I can only hope it stays that way.

God Bless.

can i comment on the Lincoln quotes now? smile

"As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy."

"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan - to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865.
