Did You Know

 Did you know, Thomas Jefferson had high hopes of bringing political harmony between the Federalists and the Republicans, the two parties of the day. That didn't happen. Politicians seldom even stayed at boarding houses or went to taverns that the other group frequented.

Sigh. I suspect he would have had even less chance today.

Echoing what EC said.

Can you imagine what Jefferson might be up against with the climate today? Seems we've gone from sad to worse over the years and centuries.

I wonder what he would have said in today's political climate.

Yet another fact I learned today Sandra.
Have a good Thursday.
Yvonne.

What would he have said about today's situation? Hugs, Valerie

Hot guys said...

Nope, I had no idea! 😏🤷‍♂️

Unknown said...

Some things don't change, except politicians no longer stay in boarding houses but very expensive hotels.

Birgit said...

Well, he had high hopes which still has not been realized today.

CJ Kennedy said...

Times haven't changed

Sandra Cox said...

Isn't that the truth?

Sandra Cox said...

I agree with you both.

Interesting

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed.

Jeanie said...

Somehow, I'm not surprised!

Sandra Cox said...

It would certainly be interesting to see his reaction and how he dealt with today's political climate, wouldn't it?

Sandra Cox said...

He would have probably been horrified, don't you imagine, Nas?

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Yvonne. Hope you have a good Thursday too:)

Sandra Cox said...

Probably nothing repeatable:)
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

Your history factoid, HG:)

Sandra Cox said...

You got that right, Andrew.

Sandra Cox said...

Not currently, that's for sure.

Sandra Cox said...

Amazing, innit?

Jacqui Murray said...

Considering how bad things are today, that is comforting.

Lee said...

Everything remains the same. :)

Sandra Cox said...

Seems we've never figured out how to get along.

Sandra Cox said...

Shaking my head.

Sandra Cox said...

Hopefully, we'll survive this too.

Sandra Cox said...

Sadly.
Sending you a hug.

Sandra Cox said...

Unfortunately.
