Pin It

Iron and Blood


In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision on so-called "Obamacare" and its implications for future interpretation of the commerce clause of the US Constitution, let us take comfort in, and never forget the sage words of, Eleanor Roosevelt.

Um, not sure if I'm stating the obvious, but that's very definitely not a picture of Eleanor Roosevelt - http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?start=196&num=10&hl=en&safe=off&biw=1024&bih=649&addh=36&tbm=isch&tbnid=_H3Tbij03_LZFM:&imgrefurl=http://www.thestreetsavvy.com/news/First-peep-at-the-Iron-Lady&docid=4BpzJhryjScF6M&imgurl=http://www.thestreetsavvy.com/sites/thestreetsavvy.com/files/Margaret_Thatcher.jpg&w=606&h=275&ei=6qXwT7KaBtCg8gPisYCCDQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=282&vpy=247&dur=2927&hovh=151&hovw=334&tx=196&ty=95&sig=107218789563143616180&page=10&tbnh=83&tbnw=184&ndsp=21&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:196,i:25

3R ~ I don't often joke about something so serious as history, but I think you've been misled. Of course that's Roosevelt; why else is she known as the Iron Lady if not for this speech?

Ruby ~ Good to see you back! Good quotes all, but does this one seem a little...harsh...for her?
