...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.

Found for Friday

This is from a Facebook post from one of my former students….It was better than any jokes I had found.

Denver, CO ·

Lunch experience in Denver airport:

Sitting next to a mom and her daughter. Kid is maybe three, wearing all pink with a pink ribbon in her hair, stuffed rabbit in one hand and eating the bite sized pieces of pizza her mom cut up for her with the other. A bird that somehow got in the terminal lands, grabs a piece of the pizza and takes off.

Kid: Mom! That bird stole my pizza!

Mom: It's ok dear, he's probably hungry...

Kid: You better fly away bird! I'm going to kick your feathered candy ass if I catch you, mother f***er!

Mom: *Horrified look in my direction*

No judgement here, that's some impressive sentence structure for someone her age.

Dijon vu - the feeling you've eaten this mustard before.

Practice safe eating - always use condiments.

Shotgun wedding - A case of wife or death.

A delivery driver for a Chinese restaurant drove in to a building. He was charged with wonton destruction of property.

A man needs a mistress just to break the monogamy.

If a child refuses to take a nap, just call the police. They'll take them away for resisting a rest.

Dancing cheek-to-cheek is really a form of floor play.
