                            This is a big thank you to all my friends at Bartcop,
                            Buzzflash, Bushwatch, and all the rest who are fighting
                            the good fight. With apologies to Abe Lincoln, the last
                            honest Republican.

                            Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought
                            forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in
                            liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men
                            are created equal.

                            Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing
                            whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so
                            dedicated can long endure a never ending onslaught of
                            propaganda, half truths, and lies served up twenty four
                            hours per day, seven days per week, on every radio
                            station, television station, and newspaper within its borders.

                            The internet is the last great battlefield of that war.

                            We have come to dedicate the internet as a final
                            resting-place for the words of those who would tell the
                            truth so that our nation 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 and women who have chosen to speak
                            the truth 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 wrote here.

                            It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the
                            unfinished work which they who wrote the truth 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 Writers
                            we take increased devotion to that cause for which they
                            gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly
                            resolve that these Writers shall not have written in vain,

                            That this nation under God shall have a new birth of
                            freedom, and that the media of the millionaires, by the
                            millionaires, and for the millionaires,

                            Shall perish from the earth.
