I love this quite from 1920
“America’s present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums, but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration; not agitation, but adjustment; not surgery, but serenity; not the dramatic, but the dispassionate; not experiment, but equipoise; not submergence in internationality, but sustainment in triumphant nationality”.
Not sure if this guy’s really any good, but if you live in Wisconsin’s first congressional district, do yourself a favor and end Paul Ryan’s miserable political career right now. The Republicans keep putting warmongering crony capitalists in charge of the House? Let the people send them packing.
According to this tabloid report, it appears the British Prime Minister is mad at the US Emperor because Obama tried to blame him for the Libya disaster. On top of that the POTUS is now BFFs with the new left wing pretty boy PM of Canada.
Hopefully this ruins the “special relationship” between the UK and US regimes. It never has benefited the average American or Briton in any way. It dragged millions of Americans into two World Wars, and since then the British Military has basically acted as America’s sidekick on a number of Imperial adventures.
It’s really just a cover so the two governments can wage aggressive war without being labeled “unilateral.” If Obama has managed to fracture this “partnership” then good. At least he’s accidentally done something right.
