Notes

  1. Especially the Ryder Cup where you can hear full-throated golf fans roar the words on this button.
  2. "I am exceedingly anxious that this Union, the Constitution, and the liberties of the people shall be perpetuated in accordance with the original idea for which that struggle was made, and I shall be most happy indeed if I shall be an humble instrument in the hands of the Almighty, and of this, his almost chosen people,for perpetuating the object of that great struggle." (Abraham Lincoln, February 21, 1861 Speech to the New Jersey Senate)
  3. As opposed to the unjustified international cursing of America by citizens of countries with far worse governments than the U.S. eg. the rest of the World (Freedom of Speech is just one example of general excellence in America)
  4. True - but laughter did exist before modern America. Jazz however, did not.
  5. Zig Ziglar
