    of anyone who uses "patriot" as part of their brand or marketing, implying that they are and we're not.  

    Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.

    •  Patriot Ledger ... (0+ / 0-)

      is just the name of the Quincy, Massachusetts newspaper nominalize.  That's not clear unless you click the link. sorry!

      Here is more information--the paper started in 1837.  

      http://en.wikipedia.org/...

      Patriot is yet another word that has been damaged by the current angry discourse.

        Here I am replying to myself, but I read some more from the above mentioned link:

        "The paper was founded on January 7, 1837, as the weekly Quincy Patriot by John Adams Green and Edward B. Osborne.

        It was the hometown paper of President John Quincy Adams, a frequent writer of letters to the editor after he left the White House and became a congressman."  and so on.

        History is so interesting!
