GOD looks after fools, drunkards and the United States of America, said Germany’s Iron Chancellor — Otto von Bismarck.
Of these, we conclude God looks most jealously after the United States of America.
America absorbs more divine favor than the most foolish fool… or the drunkest drunkard.
In quiet moments we often marvel. We marvel, that is, that we are so fortunate as to reside in this Eden, this El Dorado, this Elysium.
God filled two oceans — one Atlantic, one Pacific — to moat it off from marauders.
