Quote du jour

Thomas Jefferson, whose bust stares at me as I write this blog, had wanted to include a touching phrase in the Declaration, but his fellow authors excised it: “We might have been a great and free people together”. Indeed. Everything I have done in politics has been an attempt to apply Jeffersonian principles to British political conditions.

-Daniel Hannan, Conservative British MEP

Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson!


  1. Two centuries later, he is still ticking of the British elite.

  2. “Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself.”

    Happy 268th, Mr. President!

  3. Trestin: Yep. We should all be so lucky!

    Mrs. C: 268? That's 1,876 in dog years!
