PRESIDENTIAL QUOTE OF THE DAY:
"Literature has been the charm of my life, and, could I have carved out my own fortunes, to literature would my whole life have been devoted."
John Quincy Adams
Born July 11, 1767-Died February 23, 1848
6th President, 1825-1829 (Democratic-Republican)
A Democratic-Republican....what a concept...perhaps if we had some around today, the country wouldn't be so out of tune.
Sadly, we'd still have those Whigs to put up with.
Yes those Whigs are a problem. Course they pay a good share of the taxes even now. John Quincey was an ancestor. But from what I have been able to gather he was more of a Prig than a Whig.
Hey, he predicted the California election! (True, we spell it as Governator, but spellings have changed over the last hundred or so years)
I'm very sure I should not care
To fill our Gubernator's chair.
