This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.

With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:

My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride, From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.

And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.

Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.

Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.

Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.

But not only that:

Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.

From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last

methinks his miffedness is a bluff; a cover up for the real reason he doesn't want to come to UK; the British public have let it be known in no uncertain terms that he's not welcome but that's too obvious to admit wot? - if my surmise is correct [and will we ever know? ] that would put him in the coward category surely?

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

Sure,and I'm wit yer 'dere,gumbud [see? I can do Oirish,too!]
Yer man's a definite coward - I see no mention anywhere of him actually SERVING his country,in the way I and sooooo many others have served ours....more a question of him fleecing it clean of it's last dime,whilst ensuring offshore tax havens abound. I really do LIKE Trump as prez....for one outstanding reason - he has ENSURED,the voting Murcan public will properly analyse all candidates for the presidency-coz atm,Sarah Palin looks like 'the one that got away'...and who's EVER'VE thunk that,prior to Trump?

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

Want some British contribution the HALL OF FAME speeches

yertiz

Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

Let us all hold hands and dance around the maypole together, let us pluck the pretty flowers and adorn our hair, let us all sing in peace and harmony, peace be with you all, make babies not war, let all races be equal, including shit-hole dwelling racesÖ
Hang on, did we not have this crowd before in the 70ís, Hippies they were called, they werenít long about changing their tune when they got older, although one of my brothers managed to stay a dedicated hippy until he was thirty, by then all the other hippies had disappeared and he had to fall in line like the rest of us.
Oh the folly of youth, we all start out with the best of intentions but the real world soon changes all that, eat or be eaten, itís dog eat dog, and thatís the way itís always been and always will be, so de holy bible say.
