The Gettyshomburg Address.

Ever since I said I would burn my hat when the Blog hit 5000 views I keep getting this stuff;

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new hat, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all hats are created equal.


Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that hat, or any hat so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their hats that that hat might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.


But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate—we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished hat which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that hat for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this hat, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom— and that the hat of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Fine words maybe, but the hat is not where its at.
