...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Randy sent this one

'A little old lady is walking down the street, dragging two plastic Garbage bags with her, one in each hand.

There's a hole in one of the bags, and every once in a while a $20
Bill flies out of it onto the pavement.
Noticing this, a policeman stops her...'Ma'am, there are $20 bills
Falling out of that bag...'

'Damn!' says the little old lady.....'I'd better go back and see if
I Can still find some. Thanks for the warning!'

'Well, now, not so fast,' says the cop. 'How did you get all that
Money? 'Did you steal it?'

'Oh, no', says the little old lady. 'You see, my back yard backs up
To the parking lot of the football stadium. Each time there's a game,
a lot of fans come and pee in the bushes, right into my flower beds!'

'So, I go and stand behind the bushes with a big hedge clipper, and
Each time someone sticks his little thingie through the bushes, I
Say: $20 or off it comes!'

'Hey, not a bad idea!' laughs the cop. 'OK, good luck!

By the way, what's in the other bag?'

'Well', says the little old lady, 'not all of them pay.'
