    How appropriate! Especially given the actions of our 45th president (and I mention no names here....)!

    How unfortunate it was for President Jackson to violate the rights of Native Americans, forcibly removing them from their lands despite the Supreme Court decision saying they could stay on them, and then marching halfway across the country on a death march to reservation lands. His words are hauntingly representative of his own actions (and of certain politicians on both sides I will not name either.)
