Presidents’ Day 2016

Is our country going downhill? In some ways, obviously so.

Presidents’ Day has evolved as a tribute to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Statesmen of their caliber are in short supply, although I think there are a few today who are capable of carrying on the tradition. That short list does not include the childishly uninformed Bernie Sanders, as Michael Ramirez rather brutally points out. Click to enlarge:

Somehow the entitlement to “free stuff” didn’t make it into the Bill of Rights, while freedom of speech happily did. The Left has been gnashing its teeth over that inclusion for a long time.

For the moment, many young Americans apparently prefer the pathetic Bernie Sanders to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but I am pretty sure they will learn, eventually, as I and many others of my generation did.
