A quote for the day!

“We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace, business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt also known by his initials, FDR – 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945)

  1. Day zero in Cambodia also!

    Edmund Burke said it first ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it’ but the other remarks are those of Santayana.
    By dumbing people down, refusing to teach history, we enslave our children and grandchildren! HOME SCHOOL with the internet!

  2. Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    George Santayana (16 December 1863 in Madrid, Spain – 26 September 1952 in Rome, Italy), was a philosopher, essayist poet and novelist.
