Quote Of The Day — November 17, 2013

.
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. 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; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”

 

Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857.

    Good quote. It begs the question of when will the American people finally say “enough”. I submit that the pot is already boiling.

    The day is approaching. Every day the assmunches of this Regime wake up wondering : How Can We Piss Them Off Today?

    “The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” Truer words were never spoken and like ‘Nox, I think the pot is boiling too. We’ve endured enough and Obama is beginning to see pushback. I wonder how long it will take for him to realize that his “transformation” won’t ever be completed and he will leave office being seen as a fraud and a failure.
