Fight 'em until hell freezes over, and then fight 'em on the ice.

The above quote is from Peter Johnson's speech this past weekend at the camp outside Bush's Texas ranch. Yesterday's Democracy Now included a great deal of coverage from the rally at Camp Casey. I recommend reading the transcripts of these personal statements from mothers of active duty soldiers, Gold Star mothers, veterans, brothers of slain soldiers, elders in the peace and justice movement, a wife of an active duty and a formerly homeless veteran who works in Baltimore to assist homeless veterans.

Not up for transcript reading? Get fired up about working for peace by playing the video at We Will Not Be Silenced.

That quote is from Dutch Meyer, legendary TCU football coach.

Coach Meyer must have taken the quote from Shelby Foote in the book, "The Civil War":

We'll fight them, sir, 'til hell freezes over, and then, sir, we will fight them on the ice."
