Cap's Post and Happy Mother's Day

Cap's post and Webster's comment has me thinking, too, about the relationship between rights and responsibilities. The right to vote carries with it a responsibility that people aren't discharging with some degree of propriety. I think you fellows are on to something there.

Also I'd like to wish all the mothers a Happy Mother's Day. I really think one of the things that makes America such a great nation is the virtue of her women. Now, another topic for discussion is how this relates to society today, but I'm not going there now! May God bless our wives and mothers, one and all.

DANIEL WEBSTER ADDS:

A Happy Mother's Day, indeed! Thank you Mr. Hamilton, ummm, for reminding me. ;) Nah, someone once said: 'behind every great man is a great woman,' or something to that effect. And I firmly believe that with all my heart and soul. Funny thing though, in my case the good Lord has put several great women in my path during my journey in this thing called life....not the least of which is my precious wife - the better three-quarters of this marriage. And I've yet to attain my greatness. What's up with that?

Indeed you are correct, sir. The virtue of her women is vitally important to the continued success and greatness of this nation. Is it any wonder that "Justice" blindfolded is indeed represented as a fair maiden? Can you imagine Justice represented as a herculean male figure (or Patricia Ireland, for that matter) exacting his determinations by....what would be the impression? And you referred to this country as "her." Interesting....and as much an accident as the delicate and beautiful female depiction of Justice, I'd be willing to bet.

God Bless all you ladies; all you Mothers, sincerely, and with deep appreciation!
