    And before you ask, I'm very sure he said this.

    It might change what people think FDR ACTUALLY believed, however...

    ... or something...

    Arguing from fallacy and distortion doesn't lend credence to your position, nor does it promote much but contempt for you.

    Don't you dare tell me they never said any of this. I grew up with these.

    Yes, please do, Hyphen_ Underskor. Multiple posts in a row are considered spamming and against the rules according to the FAQ (the fan fiction subforum excluded).


    That goes a bit far, doesn't it?

    Now that you've all had fun with making up fake quotes, let's get back on topic.

    The quote is word for word repeated here, it from a July 25, 2012 piece NBC Chicago did on a unnamed Mitt Romney adviser. Can't say if the NBC quote is accurate, it about a third of the way down.

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933-1945: A fifth cousin of Theodore Roosevelt, FDR was also descended from Claes Rosenvelt. His mother, Sara Delano, was descended from Dutch Pilgrims who arrived in America shortly after the Mayflower. In the White House, Roosevelt once railed, “This is an English and Dutch country! Everyone else is here on sufferance.”

    An Internet blogger says x... so? How is that a credible source? And what does a President dead decades before the show have to do with Star Trek?

    Yes, it does. In this case, my point was that not bothering to source quotes, or even to gauge any kind of accuracy, is just as bad as any kind of hyperbole because an unsourced, unchecked quote can lead to the most idiotic of assumptions, and so I used some serious hyperbole to make my point. I meant no offense, of course.

    Will do!
