What Once Was...



This is precisely the reasoning behind Congressional Rs', teabaggRs', and Fox "news'" decision to produce the exact opposite. The implication of Abe's words, of course, is that when given falsehood they're likely to do any damn thing; and I doubt even #16 could have foreseen the extent of it.

Sid, Sid, Sid, Sid, Sid...

You left out the one about fooling some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, and what the Extender-of-the-Bush-Tax-Cuts-In-Chief is tryin to do right now...
I know, He killed Bin Laden, Yay Navy.
And yew don't wanta start throwin Abe Lincoln quotes around with a Native Born Redneck, I mean Southerner...
I mean, I could quote the censored parts of the Gettsyburg Address before I uttered my first racial epithet...
You know, the parts where he told the Union Soldiers in private that He was gonna send the Darkies to Liberia, or at least keep em out of the western territories/states, cause who in there right mind would wanta live in Montana/North/South Dakota/Nebraska/Wyoming if they had to put up with N-words...

or as Honest Abe said it himself,

"The entire nation is interested that the best use be made of the territories. We want them for the homes of free white people"
