Midnight Meme Of The Day!


by Noah

For President's Day: Teddy Roosevelt, like Lincoln and Eisenhower, was a Republican. All three are in the conversation when it comes to the discussion of who makes the list of our greatest presidents. That alone is a wonder in the world of 2018. They weren't faultless as human beings or as presidents, but they were men with souls and some sense of decency and vision for the future of their country. As such, they would never fit into today's Republican Party.

The full Roosevelt quote reads as follows:
Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, it's riches, its romance.
In today's meme, the first President Roosevelt is talking about the conservation of our natural wonders and our natural parks in patriotic terms; things today's Republicans, led by Señor Trumpanzee and his Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, feel should be sold off to the highest bidder for oil or development rights. Republicans view the beauty of natural wonders such as Yosemite and the Grand Canyon as useless obstacles to profits and personal financial gain. Roosevelt saw our wonders as treasures of a different sort, and sources of pride in their own right. Today's republicans are nothing more than parasites that see our national parks as "hosts" to be sucked dry.

If it were possible, I would love to see Señor Trumpanzee locked in a room with Teddy Roosevelt for five minutes.
