“Nobody Ever Sang Their Way to Freedom”

4 05 2012

Onion Horton’s signature quote, in reaction to a caller who floated the theory that the popularity of black musicians among whites in the 1950s and early 1960s begat the successful civil rights movement.

Similarly, nobody ever ran their way to permanent prosperity for someone else.

If they think that running is going to solve poverty in Kenya and Haiti, they’re going to do nothing but running for the rest of their lives.

They can ALL come here, and an equal number of us go there.
There are billions to be made by “us who can” in Haiti.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
