    Happy Birthday, TR.

    Theodore Roosevelt, born October 27, 1858.



    My son's history fair project from a couple of years back (proud papa, what can I say).

    Oh, if we just could have Theodore Roosevelt again for President in more recent times!! He was pro-gun and not a PC guy - just to name two of his qualities.

    Words of Wisdom from a True Man and Patriot:


    "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

    "Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering."

    "The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his own weight."

    "Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country."

    "It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things."

    "Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.

    "The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer."

    "Wars are, of course, as a rule to be avoided; but they are far better than certain kinds of peace."

    "Order without Liberty and Liberty without Order are equally destructive"

    "No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it."

    "We can have no '50-50' allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all."

    "The government is Us; We are the government, You and I."

    "No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause."

    "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."

    Without a doubt, one of our greatest presidents! Not a Democrat, not really a true Republican........ rather, a true American........a progressive (dirty word today) "Bull Moose".

    Impressive Display Hopalong! And well done to all others! I served on the SSBN 600 Theodore Roosevelt Submarine in the early 60s and always had a soft spot in my heart for all things TR! Besides being the first president to actually dive on a submarine, who can forget my ships motto "Walk Softly and Carry a Big Stick"! Jackson
