True Words by Abe Lincoln, are you listening Obozo?

True Words by Abe Lincoln, are you listening Obozo?

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 people's initiative and independence.

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

.....Abraham Lincoln

Some would say he was way ahead of his time...

The time is coming when those who kill you will think they are offering service to God. Jesus - (John 16.2) A penny saved is a government oversight.

Mr. Lincoln

Like ole Hank Jr. said " Mr. Lincoln I wish you were here"

"Two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel. One is the colors that fly high and proud the red the white the blue.The other ones got a rattlesnake with a simple statement made, Don’t Tread On Me is what it says"

Definitely an extremist.

Is obama going to show

his long form birth certificate or let the military slowly grind through all the challenges to CinC's authority?
Seems it would be easier to take 5 minutes out of his busy day and have the state of Hawai'i release the darn birth certificate.
