As an individual who undertakes to live by borrowing, soon finds his original means devoured by interest, and next to no one left to borrow from – so it must be with a government.
— Abraham Lincoln, 1843

We’re over $14 trillion in debt, and I’ll bet that Abe would have thought a “closed due to irresponsible spending” sign would be a much better civics lesson for people trying to visit his memorial than using keeping it open as a lame excuse to justify such ongoing deficit spending:

The last person I saw who did some impromptu politicking at the Lincoln Memorial without a permit got a $100 ticket.

    Political whore – nothing more, nothing less. I am surprised that he didn't have a few soldiers in tow just for a little more effect.

    As the America-loving conservative finds this Lincoln quote reason to restrain America’s borrowing and begins to attempt to reign in the reckless spending, so the Liberal Socialist believes just as strongly that it is reason to continue and even accelerate the borrowing to bring down the government sooner.

    This has to be the most distasteful commentary I have ever read and the most crass blog I have seen. Please get an education, or at the very least a degree in journalism.

    You haven't been on very many liberal blogs, have you?

    An "education" and a "degree in journalism" of often mutually exclusive.

    I guess an education includes carrying urine for the the Kenyan as you do. I for one, will have no part.

    Pop back again sometime. You probably wouldn’t be able to say something like that in your country, here it’s OK.

    gina lee,

    We HAVE gotten an 'education'. $14 Trillion dollar's worth.

    'Crass'.., pffftt. Stop by MM.com and prepare to dedicate the better part of a DAY to read the Compendium of Crass comments. And that's just the ones directed at 'her'. After a decade PLUS of nothing BUT ever-escalating foul mouthed buffonery from an out of control Left, your post is nothing shy of.., well, pure insanity.

    Get real.
