Quote of the Day

When the Know-Nothings get control, it [the Declaration] will read “All men are created equal – except Negroes, foreigners and Catholics.”  When it comes to this, I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty – to Russia , for instance – where despotism can be taken pure without the alloy of hypocrisy. ~ A. Lincoln.

I was going to say, "The more things change, the more they stay the same", but obviously, some things just *never* change.

Thanks for the reminder.
