Quote of the Day

This one brings the TSA (U.S. Transportation Security Administration) to mind…

Find out just what people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them…. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

—Frederick Douglass, former slave

In olden days, the U.S. Constitition was known as the Supreme Law of the Land

One response to “Quote of the Day

  1. Dr. Parker, that’s really an excellent quote. There is a real difference between apologizing for being wrong or hurting someone’s feelings, and apologizing for who you are. You should never apologize for who you are. However, as I suspect you know already, there’s a lot of guilt shame and fear of vilification that keeps some of the people who should be the most vocal, quiet and doubtful. I think with all this controversy about who build what and who needs to give credit to who, one of the most important things to always remember, and I think this is implied in the spirit of a quote that you just shared, is that the people of the United States run the United States – not the government. It’s the people who will ultimately decide, and the people who are responsible for their destiny.
