Freedom's Price

"Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”
--Abraham Lincoln, 2nd Inaugural Address

I don't get the connection between Holder and this video/quote, but this is powerful!

Mr Holder blames "Republicans" for his, and the President's, "ill treatment" at the hands of Congress... and the President accuses them of trying to impair voting rights.

How soon they forget!
