Don’t let Abraham Lincoln’s legacy be sold on the auction block

Don’t let Abraham Lincoln’s legacy be sold on the auction block

Unless they find the needed cash, Abraham Lincon's blood-stained gloves and famous stovepipe hat will have to be sold, so says his Illinois presidential foundation.

President Lincoln’s iconic image, which is in the public domain, is recognizable and widely used. He has been used to sell everything from perfume to carpeting, automobiles to insurance. And yet few who profit off him spend money to advance or protect his legacy.

Marriage is between Man and Woman get pissed I don't care!

Love it, even on an Orlando (campest place on earth) advert you get bigoted homophobes! Marriage is for everyone, love is love! And no one has the right to say someone is wrong, and I don’t do religion so don’t try that argument either!

Gross

Love the photo! Thank you, Orlando, for being such a loving city ♥️

So you find the most offensive photo to the far right, older generations and more conservative religious bases to what promotional end.? Or, just “fishing “ for responses as in a test etc from the sad event that transpired. Your marking people or You are looking for someone.
