"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I personally have no trouble with the current name of Washington, D.C.'s NFL franchise.

That is, I have no problem with it other than the fact that one would be hard-pressed to find within the Diamond District that delineates the bounds of our nation's Capitol a single member of a tribal clan native to America's shores at the time of its "invasion" by European settlers.   

It would be more fitting, I think, for a team representative of The District to adopt a moniker more reflective of its current denizens. How about the "Washington Bureaucrats"? Or the "Lobbyists" "Go, Lobbyists, go!!!" It would be a great deal, seriously; a "win-win" proposition, if you know what I mean (wink wink).

Or, how about: "The D.C. Elite"? Simple. Elegant. Classy.  And they'd already have the salaries to match.

So please give it some thought and get back to me.  Call my office and we'll do lunch at the Gridiron.

We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH
