  •  Honestly WTF! But I'm not going to (10+ / 0-)

    waste much energy on Schlafly. I remember how excited I was in elementary school to be chosen to read the Emma Lazarus poem at an assembly after we'd studied it in class. Those words have always resonated with me. Our country isn't perfect and has failed many times throughout our existence to live up to our ideals.  Really Phyllis.. what on earth made you such a bitter nasty person?

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
    With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    We view "The Handmaid's Tale" as cautionary. The GOP views it as an instruction book.
