Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

History Lesson-Abraham Lincoln

Image
So I said to him, I know Abe Lincoln, and you ain't no Lincoln"

Artist unknown..(if anyone knows who painted this, we will be more than happy to give the artist credit)
Received the pic and the following in an e-mail....author unknown

For those who study history --- you recall that despite the continuous attempts to quote Lincoln as a Democrat.... President Lincoln was a Republican President!

So why doesn't President Obama use this famous Lincoln quote?????????
"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
