Gary G. Kohls, Duty to Warn

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/PineTreeLogo%20%28Green%29.JPG  The Wing-Nuts WILL Fund Their Oracles, You Can Be Sure

The right wing will fund their oracles, that's a given. We are told that we will always be without means, never never know stability, never be able to provide. One more lie, after another.

We know what to do with a budget. We know how to apply it, how to grow something of value to the community with it. Let's give them something to talk about.

Thank you all sincerely.

There was, as yet, no stable two party political system in the US. Because of these realities, a relatively new, very inexperienced political party, popularly known as the Know-Nothing Party, came out of nowhere and won 43 seats in the US Congress in the national election of 1856.

Although the existence of the new party was no secret, the names of its members were a closely kept secret. “I don’t know” was the preferred answer when the press asked about the party’s behind-closed-doors meetings and conspiratorial agendas. And so the pejorative label “know-nothing” was quickly applied to the group. It was a well-deserved title.
