Damn That Lincoln

Today was DC Emancipation Day, marking the day President Abraham Lincoln issued a decree freeing all the slaves within the District of Columbia. Lincoln was the nation's 16th President and is unanimously reviled by patriotic Americans for constantly infringing on states' rights.

In an unrelated matter, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell declared today a day of mourning and ordered all flags statewide to be flown at half-staff.
