Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

Danes apologized to Ireland for Viking raids from way back, I thought they apologized to England/UK too. Pretty amazing since those raids happened around 1000 AD.  It must have been pretty bad.  Some of that history is known.

I don't like to signature politics but at times, I think it's important to say something.

Stuff and nonsense.

All Scandinavia's been infected with near terminal PC.

And yes, it Was pretty bloody back in those days, but the Danes, Swedes and Norwegians were by no means unique in that respect.

In Ireland even the Monasterys made war on each other.

They caused more damage than the Northern Invaders did.

There's only one thing you can do when you've got the wolf by the ears.

Old enough to know better and too old to care.

Got a new distributor for my Viking Hunter Heroic Fantasy Alternate History Series, so it's now available all over the place at ebook retailers including Ibooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more.

Volume/Book 1 is Free.

The UK is possibly the most artifact-rich area, and the most investigated and studied region in the world.

A lot of waves of migration.
