A Traitor To Our Basic Ideals

As we all know, I can get on my high horse at times when it comes to this failure of a President and both political parties in general. And of course, I haven’t been shy as to my disdain for the “mind dead” electorate and what they along with the pathetic so called journalists of the MSM had wrought unto this country. Well, after the talk down to the public called the State of the Union speech, one can guess I was ready to blow, especially with the MSM and others lauding President Bozo. And don’t even get me started on the sad spectacle of the entrenched establishment Republicans and their horrible “let’s destroy the party” attitude as to their campaigning. As such, two items caught my eye which tie in with the following tirade.

First, was the First Lady’s comments on an interview. First Lady Michelle Obama: “I guess it’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman. But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced. That I’m some angry black woman.”

As I have railed on in the past how I feel this President, his party and followers are race baiters of the highest degree, this comment did not surprise me. However, I cannot remember ever seeing anything accusing or pointing to Mrs. Obama as “an angry black woman” I swear, I’ve looked, but haven’t found it yet. So as such just another piece of proof as to the racial bias shown by this administration.

The second piece was about Gov. Brewer of Arizona and her “finger waggling” as it’s being called or in most cases her so called lack of respect for someone who certainly doesn’t deserve it, office be damned. This of course is not the first time the petulant little boy in the White house has talked down to someone who is in disagreement with his Anti-American leftist policies. From various news sources:

“ It was a tense moment on the tarmac.

President Obama, alighting from the stairs of Air Force One in Phoenix this afternoon, was greeted by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who handed him an envelope and the two exchanged what appeared to be some heated sentiments. At one point, she pointed her finger at him.

Asked afterward what happened, Brewer said, “He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast.

“I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt,” she said, according to a pool report. “He didn’t feel that I had treated him cordially. I said I was sorry he felt that way but I didn’t get my sentence finished. Anyway, we’re glad he’s here. I’ll regroup.”

“It was though President Obama thought he could lecture me, and I would learn at his knee,” the governor wrote, calling his tone “patronizing.”

“He thinks he can humor me and then get rid of me,” Brewer wrote.
“But it was a pretty one-sided conversation,” Brewer said. “He was, I believe, condescending. And he was lecturing me about what we were going to do and how we were going to do it.”

On one of the sites I follow, Flopping Aces, I wrote the following. Of course I was taken to task for my references to dictators, etc. in my defense of Gov. Brewer:

“Just a reminder here. He is the President. HE IS NOT A KING! As Gov. Brewer said, she’ll respect the office, but she sure as hell does not have to respect the man, especially when the man is someone who seems to feel he is a king.

This President has more than once shown his disdain for the groveling masses, preferring to threaten rather than govern. After listening to his Bull S… session the other night, the only thing I can see is he now feels he is in fact the dictator he wants to be. What I saw harkens back to the days of Hitler, Stalin or whatever dictator you care to mention. For you libbies out there, I’m not referring to him as a murdering scum as Hitler was. However since most libbies refuse to even learn history, Hitler was a great orator who managed to fool the public with his lies while amassing power. when confronted, he pulled exactly what President Bozo did with Gov. Brewer. He talked down to, threatened, etc. and always took umbrage to anything bad written or said about him. That is historical fact! Of course, the leftists and for that matter the establishment RINO scum don’t bother to learn from the facts. Only power counts.

In this country we have the right to stand up to and speak out against those who would want to destroy our way of life. Gov. Brewer did this, first in her book and then face to face with the President. A citizen of the United States stood her ground to a wanna be tin horn dictator! Good for her. How sad that so many in this country refuse to stand for their basic rights!”
Of course, this brought a myriad of responses, one of which when I looked back through the thread

In my original answer to a commenter who asked me if I thought the President was being “uppity” below, I noted the President was not “uppity” In rereading the thread, it occurred to me that there was a racial element put in there by the commenter which I somehow missed and I just wanted to clarify myself. Having said that, once again, the race card is thrown as it is being thrown in the class warfare rhetoric coming from our President and his minions and this too is traitorous in my view.

“No, I don’t think he is uppity. I feel he is such an embarrassment to the office and the country that I could not remotely relate to someone who I feel is against everything I and our founding fathers hold dear! Practicing one’s right to Freedom of Speech and expression takes a lot of guts in this PC age of idiocy, especially considering one now becomes an enemy of the state in doing so! Gov. Brewer only did that.

The President is nothing except a man. He is the employee of every taxpaying citizen here in the U.S. We the People are his bosses. Personally, I have no use for arrogant elitist know it alls who tell me how to live my life. However I have absolutely no tolerance for people who i feel are traitors to our country and our way of life. In my lifetime of sixty years, I have seen many morons who once in office have turned against our founding principles and in effect became corrupt with the power, etc.

And followers of this site also know I rail against the establishment Republicans as well as the Leftist democrats and their Marxist/Socialist/Muslim loving leader. They are every bit as bad as this scumball is. but never in my life have I seen any President so openly hostile to this country and our ideals! When a man states as he did the other day here in Vegas that the individual cannot do it alone but in fact government must do it (I’m paraphrasing here) then something is terribly wrong if “We the People” in fact believe that!

The man in my estimation is a traitor to this country and its ideals! Uppity? NO! This man, his and his wife’s policies and beliefs as well as the scum political circus in D.C. is a cancer that is quickly destroying this great country of ours. I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit by and be quiet as so many are wont to do in this case for fear of jobs or whatever. Gov. Brewer stood her ground as she is allowed to do in this country!

Notice I allude to Hitler and other dictators in my first comment. That my friend is not my believing he is “uppity”. That is the cold hard fact that the brain dead electorate, choosing to believe the lies and false promises (the hands out mentality as I call it) rather that take responsibility for their own actions, an electorate that not only refuses to take their most sacred right, the right to vote seriously is now facing. “

Another commenter took me to task for among other things calling the President a scumball as well as showing him disrespect. The commenter is a Marine who served honorably and of course I respect his right to his opinion, much more so that some others. I answered him as follows when he accused me of in effect “being brave on the internet”. He was also upset I called Obama a traitor, something I truly believe to be true.

“As a born Chicago boy, I will say one thing that is fact! If President Obama were here in front of me, I would call him a traitor to his face. While I’ve always admired you for your service to our country, you do make me wonder sometimes. I call it as I see it (and yes, I can get quite crass, but unlike the politically correct, I don’t really care about name calling. That’s how I feel about him and most politicians and that’s what I call him) and would not be the least bit cowered in letting him know exactly what I feel. And don’t forget one other thing. The internet is in many ways the only way to get the truth out now. You sure as hell won’t get it from the MSM or the lying sacks of you know what we call politicians, headed as usual by our so called President. Respect the office? Yes. Respect the man in it? No? As I said, we are his bosses. He is not a king!

Read the sentence in my first response, especially the last part, “who I feel is against everything I and our founding fathers hold dear!” A traitor can come in many guises. In this case, the people, refusing to take their sacred duty as citizens and voters seriously and/or just being too greedy, lazy or stupid and believing the lies elected a person into office who is the personification of everything that is abhorrent to true Americans. His race baiting, his Marxist/Socialist policies, his utter disdain for the individual and so on. Everything he does in my view is Anti-American. We are a country founded on a set of ideals, ideals that made us the greatest country to ever exist, yet we have people defending this guy, his policies and the leftist agenda. Yet everything this guy espouses is in stark contrast to our founding principles. That in my view makes him a traitor!”

This particular commenter than came back in effect accusing me of sitting on my butt and only commenting on the ”internet”:

“I take a little umbrage in the “get up and do something” comment. I practice what I preach. I vote after I have fully educated myself as to the pros and cons of any candidate. As such, I would if warranted vote for someone of any party that I felt could do the job correctly. I speak out, not only on the internet. As for blaming the MSM, I am not putting the blame squarely on them. There are so many other causes of the voter stupidity out there such as the “Dumbing down of our schools” (I believe the late Senator Moynihan coined that phrase? And my gosh, he was a Democrat!) , the ultra left causes being pushed by the D.C. entrenched morons (for which I have always blamed both parties) and so on. The fact is that the MSM is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the left, pure and simple.

While I point out how I feel as to the guy in the White House (and please understand. I realize the President is the C in C and as an ex Marine you hold to that credo and should). The service didn’t want me although I tried to enlist so I don’t quite get into the C in C mode (My lottery number was 3 in 1968, but both my draft and when trying to enlist physical disqualified me). As such, I find it hard to respect this man as a leader.

As I said earlier, “ In this case, the people, refusing to take their sacred duty as citizens and voters seriously and/or just being too greedy, lazy or stupid and believing the lies elected a person into office who is the personification of everything that is abhorrent to true Americans” The information was out there. The MSM, PACs or whatever openly lied or hid those facts. The MSM in particular did not do its job! And I’m not talking about (nor never have) the birther issue. For whatever reason, the powers that be refused to vet this guy properly. However, in turn the electorate as I have said until I’m blue in the face did not take their jobs as citizens seriously enough and have not for years to actually elect a person who was suitable for the job. False promises, lies and entitlement mentality took the place of an educated electorate. And that is also fact. Why is it the folks on the left promote class warfare and entitlement mentality as well as mandate school curriculum that do not teach our basic ideals? Even when my kids were in school we saw (especially at USF with my 2 oldest girls) the open leftist curriculum being pushed so as such, I speak from experience. Seeing what the schools are teaching now to my grand kids I find the situation far worse. Luckily, we have instilled in our kids what it is to be a true American, something that schools do not teach anymore! They are good at rewriting history though. My point is in my eyes they are purposely creating a mind dead electorate with the sole purpose of keeping their power.

Is the information to make a reasoned decision out there? YES! But it certainly is not reflected in the MSM or the 2 major political parties. That again is fact. You fought for among other things, our right to vote. Yet there are so many who actually advocate withholding the information needed to make an informed decision. And when people such as myself and others, ESPECIALLY IN THE LAST 3 YEARS WITH THIS ADMINISTRATION, SPEAK OUT, we become enemies of the state as I noted before. This President has openly advocated “telling on your neighbor” or “reporting Anti-Obama/Democrat speech or writing. This President has splintered this country, racially and philosophically. His vision of America is one that as we can see in Europe and every failed Socialist country is completely against our way of life. His embrace of the Radical Muslim agenda (Bin-Laden aside) is one that is leading us into a Third World War. And let’s not forget how he throws our allies under the bus.

This is how I feel. I have come to the conclusion I have about this guy because I know how to read and look at everything I can get my hands on. I then make an informed decision based on my beliefs and knowledge of any subject or candidate. Am I perfect? No! Can I be wrong and change my mind? Yes! Have I seen anything yet to change my mind as to what I feel is a cancer that has permeated not only the White House but government in general? No!

You and so many others fought for my right to state my opinion and I appreciate that deeply. But as I said earlier, I have no tolerance for elitist tin horn wanna be dictators, especially those of a hard left Marxist/Socialist such as I feel this President is. We were a country of doers, yet now we have a President that in effect bad mouths success.

Is this really what you and so many others fought for? I sincerely hope not. I hold service men and women in high esteem as I have said before on this site. My father and two step-fathers gave of themselves far more than I can maybe ever hope to understand. I truly believe they are rolling in their graves right now seeing what is transpiring in this nation.

Sorry to be long winded her, but I really want everyone to understand where I’m coming from on this. And please note once again. Yes, I call Obama a traitor to this country, but I do not entirely blame him. I blame as I’ve said more than once a “mind dead electorate” that has either forgotten or in many cases has not been taught the basic principles this country was founded on. That is my belief.

I leave you with a quote I lifted off the Political Pistachio site: look at what comes out of the mouths of our so called leaders then tell me with an straight face that this man in his policies is not a traitor to our country’s ideals.

“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

Happy New Year! Optimistic? We Should Be!

I want to start out today by wishing everyone a safe and prosperous Happy New Year!

I noticed a headline yesterday noting Americans were greeting the New Year with “optimism”! As I read that story. I asked myself: What the hell is there to be optimistic about?

First and foremost, there are our friends, the Radical Muslims whose sole intent, under the guise of religion, is death to Jews, and all in the Western world who cling to the ideals as espoused by our founding fathers. One must make no mistake of this. Between the radical Muslim terrorists and enablers such as “Mr. We Will Talk To Them” Obama and other Chamberlain like morons, the entire Mideast is heading for an all out war. Not surprising when we have leaders and hate mongers such as we do here who despise Israel beyond rationality!

As our President has openly professed in his own words (read his book!)siding with the Muslims if needed, the end result is clear. Refusal to call terrorists terrorists, the fiasco still going on as to the Ft. Hood terrorist and apologizing repeatedly for “America’s” “misunderstanding”(what a joke) of the Muslim world (and for that matter, basically standing with the scum of the U.N. and blaming us for everything) leaves little room for hope on the Mideast front. And heaven help poor Israel. This President and his moronic advisers (and let’s not forget that great Anti-Israeli Ron Paul) are leading the charge for his Muslim brothers. BTW: Let’s also not forget the blown opportunities and in turn the embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Taliban (America at this moment is “negotiating” with these clowns).

One also must note the creeping onset of apparent Sharia compliance as well as censorship of all free speech when speaking the truth as to the Radical Muslim s. Not much to hope for if free speech is the victim, and in many cases it is! The war that is being waged in the Mideast and for that matter in Socialist Europe is only the beginning. We are next!

And it is coming here what with Political Correctness and not! The truth about the Muslim religion if one chooses to believe the Radical Agenda and for that matter the words of the Koran is a message of hate, intolerance, despite of women and a complete hatred of Western Ideals including Freedom of Speech and Religion! One only has to look not only at places like Dearborn, Michigan, but listen to the shameless idiots including our Muslim leaning President who steadfastly refuse to call a spade a spade! They are not our enemies. They are not terrorists. It's always alleged with them. Call the Radical Muslim terrorists, the Mullahs or the religion itself what it is from their own words and you are branded either a racist or intolerant.

Here in the states even now, one can be charged with a hate crime for daring to speak the truth about this bastardized religion (by bastardized, I mean bent to conform with the hateful views of the mullahs and their indoctrination of the uneducated Muslim masses). THAT IS THE TRUTH! Speak it and you will be persecuted, whether it is to call the assassin at Ft. Hood a radical Muslim or for that matter criticize the clown President and his apparent Muslim leanings!

How’s this for wondering about “optimism”? We have a President who openly promotes class warfare and racism! He brands the people who succeed as robber barons1 He sees any gains earned by hard working people as illicit and belonging to the state! Of course in his words, it’s “to all the people”. Moron alert! It’s the state!

He has an Attorney General who refuses to prosecute a blatant racist act as to the Black Panther Voting scandal, one who is covering up a terrible episode as to the Fast and Furious gun running episode among others yet one who also has the temerity to speak out on “gun deaths and crime being up and he will do all he can to take our guns away! Hypocrisy at its highest. The man and his puppet master fan the seeds of racism and class warfare then are shocked, absolutely shocked when crime goes up! Talk about the gang that couldn’t shoot straight! Yep. Lots of optimism when it comes to this justice department! Case in point:

From Cal Thomas:
“Is there, or should there ever be, a point when a state is no longer penalized for its discriminatory past?

Not according to the Department of Justice, which last Friday rejected a South Carolina law that would have required voters show a valid photo ID before casting their ballots.
Justice says the law discriminates against minorities. The Obama administration said, “South Carolina’s law didn’t meet the burden under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which outlawed discriminatory practices preventing blacks from voting.” Why South Carolina? Because, the Justice Department contends, it’s tasked with approving voting changes in states that have failed in the past to protect the rights of blacks.

Are they serious?”

This comes from a Twitter posting by cutiepi2u, a CA Conservative:

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that will require every citizen 2 prove they are insured but not 2 prove they are a citizen.

Man, what a dead on quote. As this President and his lackeys push this country into third world poverty status, they openly pit Americans against each other as well as enabling the Illegal Aliens that have over run this country to amass even more power. Law abiding citizens be damned, all of you! We’re in deep do do when only Illegals have rights and the citizens of our country are in fact the criminal element as deemed by this administration and Prince Harry and his clowns in the senate (let’s not forget Princess Lisa and the rest of the RINO scumbags either).

I saw today a statement by the administration wherein he will rather than run on his pathetic record, he will in fact run against Congress for doing nothing! While there can be a grain of truth in that, one can be sure the co-opted media will bastardize that into the “Republicans stopped everything”! Fine and dandy, but not much hope for optimism there, is it? After all, his Democratic Senate has still refused to do their job as per the laws of this land and even vote on a budget for over nine hundred days! That’s 3 years if inaction, yet it’s the other side’s fault! His stance is not even hypocrisy for god’s sake! Moron Alert! The man and his minions are bald faced liars who do not give one damn about the American people! Power! That’s what it is about!

It was also stated he would resort exclusively to Executive Orders. Bypassing Congress and for that matter the Constitutional law of that land (something for which it has been proven he has utter disdain for) if needed. Ah yes! King Barak and Queen Michelle will in fact force the Marxist Socialist, Muslim agenda on us all, laws be damned! Even as he peaks of income redistribution, vilifying the rich and cutting downs the bedrock principles of this country, he projects an air of royalty (at least that’s what he and his propaganda industry think) when in fact he is destroying the very fabric of this nation! Certainly something to be optimistic about, right? NOT! Read the words below then watch the actions of this scum bag President (And for those of you who read this who don’t like me calling him that, fact is fact! Free speech and my perception. You can all bite me!).

BTW: I highly recommend Douglas Gibbs and his Political Pistachio blog. He always has pertinent up to date views as well as reminding one constantly of what this country is really about!

Douglas Gibbs at Political Pistachio:

"No Aristocracy in America "As our president bears no resemblance to a king so we shall see the Senate has no similitude to nobles. First, not being hereditary, their collective knowledge, wisdom, and virtue are not precarious. For by these qualities alone are they to obtain their offices, and they will have none of the peculiar qualities and vices of those men who possess power merely because their father held it before them." --Tench Coxe, An American Citizen, No. 2, 1787 "

I could go on here for hours, but I think you all have the drift of this now. Between the establishment Republican scum that is actively tearing apart their own party so they can keep power and perks to the Democrats who apparently have absolutely no idea what this country is anymore! Bring on the Euro model seems to be their rant. Entitlements mean reelection and more perks for us!

However, that is not my intent! I for one am optimistic for many reasons. First, let me comment on the Tim Tebow garbage. I bring him up a as an example optimism as to our future and its leaders! The MSM, sportswriters and most of the Anti-God brigade are openly attacking a fine young man (and yes, his throwing mechanics suck!)! He along with a young man named Josh Ripley epitomize what is great about this country of ours!

A month or so ago, I came across a great story about a young man named Josh Ripley ( I posted on this great young man a while back), a high school athlete who, strong in his faith helped a hurt competitor during a cross country meet, throwing away his chance at winning a championship or glory and instead showing the leadership that faith in one’s God can deliver. In that post, I wrote the following about this great young man. In an comment on a Tebow story on the Flopping Aces site, I changed the name from what I had written about Josh to Tim whom it must be noted gives so much of himself to his fellow man also!). Both of these give young men. while proudly professing their faith, live by it! Both show leadership! Both give of themselves. One is rich and famous, the other a high school athlete. Yet both are the kind of men I am happy that my kids, grandkids and I look up to! As such, the folks who insist in belittling Tim and others should get their heads out of their collective behinds! How I wish the scum in Washington from our so called President to the rest of the establishment scum we call leaders could just once show the qualities of Tim Tebow or Josh Ripley!

“In this young man, we see what not only a true leader is, not only what a hero is, but in fact we see the very essence of what makes real Americans what they are. Here we have a young man, who gives of himself for his fellow man. He prays to his God, adhering to his faith as all good men do. His humanity takes over and he casts aside his own aspirations. In every quality, this young man shows us what a man is and from my point of view, he is thousands of times the man (or woman as I am speaking of character here) our President, so many elected officials and the members of the MSM can ever hope to be. Character, something of which there is a complete lack of in people who we stupidly call leaders and advisers! Yes Virginia, there is hope for optimism!

There is a great site called “The New Jacksonian Blog” written by a gentleman named Michael Kaplan. He is historian by profession and teaches American history at Farmingdale State College, SUNY. His last post was “Winston Churchill on the Meaning of Civilization “.

I commented as follows because Churchill’s stirring words not only capture the American Ideal, but in fact point to the optimism that in fact radiates from that ideal!:

“What a fabulous speech that was! It's rather amazing in some ways that Churchill and Thatcher, Brits to boot epitomized what is the "American Ideal"!

Anyone who is willing to actually learn from history should not only be aware of the dangers from appeasers like our current president, but also should realize one must learn from history and not make the same mistakes. The hatred, Anti-Semitism, racial and class warfare now being practiced by this administration is evidence of as you state above an elitist mind set that is destroying our country from within, just as Khrushchev said would happen.

I sometimes wonder if there is a leader left with the stature of a Reagan, Churchill or whatever and if so, would he or she really want to subject themselves to the character assassination tactics of the co-opted media and the left.

As we have a President who spouts out how he has done more for Israel than any other President (I"m just using this as one example of lack of leadership and loyalty) while openly throwing them under the bus and embracing the Muslim Radicals, one can only wonder where the real leaders are at this time and when they will come out and say enough is enough!

As always Michael my thanks once again for a great article, in this case, a reaffirmation of not only the greatness of Mr. Churchill, but the American ideal in spades!”

Below is Churchill’s speech which I lifted from Michael"s sight LOL! Seriously, these are not just words! This is in fact the American Ideal in spades! This is what the lefties from our President on down do not want you to hear! Western Civilization is in great peril! Yet every time it gets to the edge, great men and women have fought back. I mention Tim Tebow and Josh Ripley above as evidence of the leadership needed, but there are many others for sure. I am optimistic our future is in fact going to be ok as long as our Freedom of Speech and in turn the basic liberties are not stomped on any more than they have been! Faith in God and one’s country is not a sin as the President and the MSM would want us to believe!

Winston S. Churchill, “Civilization,” Chancellor’s Address, University of Bristol, July 2, 1938

There are few words which are used more loosely than the word “Civilization.” What does it mean? It means a society based upon the opinion of civilians. It means that violence, the rule of warriors and despotic chiefs, the conditions of camps and warfare, of riot and tyranny, give place to parliaments where laws are made, and independent courts of justice in which over long periods those laws are maintained. That is Civilization—and in its soil grow continually freedom, comfort and culture. When Civilization reigns, in any country, a wider and less harassed life is afforded to the masses of the people. The traditions of the past are cherished, and the inheritance bequeathed to us by former wise or valiant men becomes a rich estate to be enjoyed and used by all.

The central principle of Civilization is the subordination of the ruling authority to the settled customs of the people and to their will as expressed through the Constitution. In this Island we have today achieved in a high degree the blessings of Civilization. There is freedom: there is law; there is love of country; there is a great measure of good will between classes: there is a widening prosperity. There are unmeasured opportunities of correcting abuses and making further progress.

In this very week we have seen a Prime Minister at the head of a large and loyal majority bow with good grace to the customs of Parliament, and we have heard Socialist Members speaking with pride of the precedents of the early seventeenth century, and the principles of the Petition of Right. (Editor’s Note: A reference to the Report of the Committee of Privileges which inquired into the dispute between Mr. Hore-Belisha and Mr. Duncan Sandys.) In this respect for law and sense of continuity lies one of the glories of England. And more than that, there also lies in it an important part of her strength and safety. Such episodes are astonishing, but also educative, to countries where dictatorships prevail, and where no one dares to raise his hand against arbitrary power. They stir and cheer the minds of men in many lands.

We have, however, to face the problem of the turbulent, formidable world outside our shores. Why should not the same principles which have shaped the free, ordered, tolerant Civilization of the British Isles and British Empire be found serviceable in the organization of this anxious world? Why should not nations link themselves together in a larger system and establish a rule of law for the benefit of all? That surely is the supreme hope by which we should be inspired and the goal towards which we should march with resolute step.

But it is vain to imagine that the mere perception or declaration of right principles, whether in one country or in many countries, will be of any value unless they are supported by those qualities of civic virtue and manly courage—aye, and by those instruments and agencies of force and science which in the last resort must be the defense of right and reason.

Civilization will not last, freedom will not survive, peace will not be kept, unless a very large majority of mankind unite together to defend them and show themselves possessed of a constabulary power before which barbaric and atavistic forces will stand in awe.

Here, then, we see the task which should command the exertions of the rising generation which tills this spacious hall, and which may bring to the life of Britain the surge of a new impulse towards the organization of world peace, and across the gulf of these eventful years prepare and bring nearer the Brotherhood of Man.
