Advice to W

Get your ass out of the White House. Get your ass over to the Jefferson Memorial and read his words there:
I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change. With the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.
Then take a little hike around to the FDR Memorial and read his words there:
We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization.
Then go back to that great house where both those men whose footsteps you are privileged to walk in lived and ask yourself how you can sleep at night when you advocate the Federal Marriage Amendment.

And Congressman Ford: You should know better, too.

One thing I find interesting about you Tim is your profound interest in American politics and history. When I first met you, you were reading the Jefferson biography if I remember correctly... My A.P. history course in high school was enough for me!
