I am passionately interested in understanding how my country works and if you want to know about this thing called the United States of America you have to know about the Civil War.  — Ken Burns

Michael Crichton

My post this week is full of quotes that are generally about the same point.  This week the world was treated to another inaccurate fact in United States history and the world was dumbfounded.  This brings to mind a famous saying from George Santayana that has been used or paraphrase many times. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    I am always astounded by what comes out of some folks mouths. What ever happened to ‘Think before you Speak’? Or a folks just so arrogant, think they know everything and are so important that no one will question what stupid stuff they say?

  2. It seems everywhere you look these days you see either people ignorant about all history or people/organizations/groups trying to rewrite it. The two together is down right frightening! “Lies will become known as truth, and truth will become known as lies.”
