    Reminds me of Australia today. There are schools that have banned christmas decorations and carols because it may offend muslims. They don't sing the national anthem because it might offend 1st australians. This is the price we pay for multiculturalism. Not very uplifting but true.

    The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.

    There is almost nothing so modern, too newfangled, that Lincoln cannot somehow be quoted to support its acquisition. -- me

    No, earlier I just happened to have been reading about how Lincoln was so prolifically used to sell stuff by means of "quotes".

    It was the late 19th and early 20th century equivalent of: George Washington slept here.

    ... and then I read your two quotes and, bada bing, bada boom, waa waa waaa-a-aaaaa
