So, while you have been taught that TR negotiated with other countries with the ever-present threat from a large military force, Teddy was actually just talking it out over some coffee and almond-filled, Dutch pastries.
Don’t believe me? Teddy won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for his negotiation efforts and ending the Russo-Japanese war at (where else) the Hauge …in the Netherlands …where there is a TON of fresh banket for everyone. You can Google it and connect the dots for yourself.
To celebrate TR’s legacy, we are offering a new shirt with the ENTIRE quote. Help us set history straight, and let everyone know that banket makes everything better.
