Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others.

As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and Laws, let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor; let every man remember that to violate the law, is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own, and his children's liberty.

Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and Let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay, of all sexes and tongues, and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.

While ever a state of feeling, such as this, shall universally, or even, very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom.

O'Reilly & Friends

Just wanted to share this hilarious cartoon by David Ravenwood -- I wish I could do cartoons... so envious!

This of course is in reference to the endless and endlessly entertaining attacks on Daily Kos by Bill O'Reilly. I hope he never stops; he's driving away his advertisers while bringing many new visitors to Kos, and of course, added respectability to the 'rational blogosphere.'

Heh heh.

Dave the Rave is a regular cartoonist at Left 'Toon Lane, a lefty cartoon collective I administer. I hope you will look to the Lane for cartoons to illustrate comments and essays. Some of the cartoonists are also open to "commissioned" pieces, not meaning money (we wish), but specific requests to illustrate a particularly big story.

I just added your site to the blog roll... excellent collection!

I am a hopeless cartoonist-wannabe. If you don't mind sharing, I will definitely stop by for cartoons and link back to either your collective site or wherever you wish (with your permission of course - just let me know how it all works.) I do what I can with Photoshop, but cartoonists are true illustrators; the masters of the craft. I'd give anything to be able to draw like that!

Really loved your bridge cartoon. Devastatingly accurate.

Please just link them back to Left 'Toon Lane, and drop me a line there (email is in the header), so I can let whichever cartoonist you use know about it. You might want to check the latest from Map..., blue dogs. It's amazing.

Thanks for the kind words.
