...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

A happily married man had only one complaint, his wife was always nursing sick birds.

One November evening, he came home to find a raven with a splint on its beak sitting in his favorite chair.

On the dining room table there was a feverish eagle pecking at an aspirin.

Meanwhile in the kitchen his wife was comforting a shivering little wren that she found in the snow.

The furious spouse strode over to where his wife was toweling down the cold little bird.

"I can't take it any more! We've got to get rid of all of these damn..."

The wife held up her hand to cut him off in mid-curse.

"Please Dear," she said, "Not in front of the chilled wren."

I just bought a thesaurus and when I got home

and opened it all the pages were blank.

I have no words to describe how angry I am.



 

All the waterfowl kept their eyes closed except for one.

It was a Peking duck.

But alas, it was all in vein.

Because there could be a salad dressing.

They are usually about 90 degrees.


The man brought an umbrella into the ice cream Shoppe

because there was a chance for sprinkles.
