Debate and Discourse: AWESOME POST in "The American Presidency: It repeats itself", by dra
Sometimes someone is just so wrong it becomes awesome. In the sense of provoking awe and wonder at their stupidity. As noted further down in the thread:
"The quotes were published in 1942 by William J. H. Boetcker, a Presbyterian minister. He released a pamphlet titled Lincoln On Limitations, which did include a Lincoln quote, but also added 10 statements written by Boetcker himself."
I'll tell you what happened to the polls people woke up. But I'll let one of our greatest presidents sum it up.
"You cannot help the poor, by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak, by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity, by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up, by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage, by taking away men's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could and should, do for themselves."
~ Abraham Lincoln
In what respect, Charlie?
Umm people realize that "spreading the wealth" is bad. that you don't punish success and you don't Tax more in a slow economy. All that does is give us trickle up poverty instead.
The Guy saved the union and is generaly regarded as one of the greatest presidents of all time. what the the hell is wrong with you?
What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson
