    Why johnson might have cancelled sherman's general order #15.

    President Johnson was a Southerner who inherited the presidency due to Abraham Lincoln's assassination, it is true. There is at least a chance though that he respected the mandate which the voters had given his predecessor and tried for a time to enact Lincoln's party's policies regarding the...

    Why johnson might have cancelled sherman's general order #15.

    Suppose Union forces sold some of the slaves? Officially, of course, they would never do such a thing but what if opportunists among them seized their chance to get rich by smuggling out as many as they could? The Union controlled large portions of the coast such as Port Royal, S.C., for large...

    Joe biden speech

    Trump may be senile or a false flag candidate. He took a lot of good conservative positions but then did a really bad job of representing them. Now he wants everyone to think if we ever get anyone in there who believes in any of the things he does, they'll want to keep the job forever...

    An excellent development.

    Actually I'm probably wrong about what they're doing there because they'd probably want to get away from the look of a style that had changed before they got away from the technology.

    An excellent development.

    An ad for a bicycle which may have been from a former fixie maker popped up today. If fewer people are riding fixed, why not keep the good parts and include just a few refinements? It still had the 25.4mm double butted 4130 main triangle, but they had outfitted it with an 8 speed rear cassette...

    The reason liberals feel guilty? not success & privilege!!! rather, they fear a karmic payback!!!

    My point isn't really about who they are trying to be. I am guessing they may be people who were displaced by the collective decision to view all inequality as racism. Some sources claim we're spending around 5X the amount on public education in some inner city districts above the amount that...

    SoreShoulder Member Posts: 2,708 ✭✭✭ Conservatives often assume Liberals are ignorant or soft on crime. I think there's a part of the picture which conservatives are missing. What it is, is big city liberals know they themselves don't always deserve much of what they have, so they are...

    An interesting bit of History……. This is a conveniently forgotten history of political amnesia. It would have been a good subject for one of Paul Harvey's "The Rest Of The Story" segments. According to Donald Rumsfeld’s book on Gerald Ford entitled, When the Center Held, he told an...

    It could be just my obsessiveness talking, but i'm going with anyone but her.

    It turns out we may be distantly related. I don't specifically recall ever meeting her but suppose I did meet her or something and didn't realize why I should remember because I didn't know who she was or that she suspected we were related. Suppose she tried to show a little concern...

    What it is with chicago besides affirmative action.

    It is a strongly Catholic town, at least on the surface of it. However, I get the feeling some corruption has crept in. Many people here are European with Black heritage, and I sense that it may drive a system of corruption in the city and the outlying feeder schools in communities with ties...

    What's going on with race

    There are two facts which must be understood in order to grasp what is going on with race in America. The first is that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has been interpreted by most states to mean that employers had to hire the same proportion of qualified minorities as are present in the...

    Can it be the automakers stopped making cars because no longer on the federal dole?

    Baling the automakers out was expensive and drove up the national debt. When the government goes heavily into debt, it drives up the cost of borrowing. Cars become harder to buy.

    Can it be the automakers stopped making cars because no longer on the federal dole?

    Now I get the Obama Highway Stimulus. Too much money was spent on too small a segment for it to have been an economic stimulus. Have you ever seen as many people working on the roads at once? Even on Sunday Evening? They had to train 15,000 new workers who probably never worked in the...
