Thomas Jefferson loved Paris and he surely would approve of these photos of Eniko Mihalik, by Cedric Buchet published in Vogue Paris March 2010, married to his own words.
Thomas Jefferson’s views on God and government is enlightening, especially given the events of the past week. Refusing to deal with jobs and the economy, Washington Republicans focused on their top priority of making America a theocracy.
Today’s op ed in The Pilot, Southern Pines, NC sets the stage for Jefferson’s reflections:
This past Tuesday, the United States economy was still fragile. A looming Greek debt crisis threatened to make things worse. Perhaps most tragically (judging from the wall-to-wall press coverage), someone named Kim Kardashian had just filed for divorce.
Beset by crises, it was hard to know which way to turn, which of our nation’s many problems must be addressed first. But one man could see clearly what needed to be done. One man knew what required immediate action. That man was Speaker of the House John Boehner. With seconds ticking away, he and his fellow Republicans seized the moment and used it to its greatest advantage.
What step did these brave visionaries, these giants in the land, take? They boldly introduced legislation to have “In God We Trust” declared the motto of the United States.
I believe that Thomas Jefferson should speak though his own words, with no commentary from me — except to say that the great Jefferson would consider Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and the whole Republican presidential crew wackos and a danger to the republic.
