    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...

    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!!!

    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...

    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?

    During the debate, Biden insinuated it was Trump's mismanagement that drove the US automakers from producing cars. Can it be though that they simply were kept alive by corporate welfare during the Obama years? Or at least by an agreement or understanding to not go out of business until a...

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

    I had an unusual feeling which could have just been a daydream that a certain very important person was looking at me with her mind's eye from a distance, with flattery that I estimated to be insincere. It was not an actual hallucination of them being in the room, just a slight notion that I...

    Black lives matter because of the wall!

    Black Lives Matter because of the wall. The reason people are no longer scared to protest is that they don't have to fear getting fired and replaced by someone from Central America.

    Why big city liberals need trump's wall, whether they know it or not.

    Unbridled undocumented immigration will serve to increase the hiring quotas for persons of Latino descent. The percentages will come out of everybody else's quota. Suppose you have to move to a whiter community if you want to actually obtain one of the new jobs you are so sure the growth of...

    Does any us member recall eeoc saying european ancestry equals black ancestry?

    I seem to recall within the past few years there was some sort of announcement from the EEOC saying that any European could now claim black ancestry on employment applications. Maybe it was just some commentator saying that's what the latest genetic findings should mean because DNA data does...

    Fascinating genetic findings re european heritage.

    The August 2019 issue of National Geographic described genetically derived data which establishes that Europeans are descended from three main prehistoric migrations into Europe. There was one from Central Asia around 6,000 years ago, one from the Middle East around 8,000 years ago, and one...

    Reparations for slavery.

    While the details I've worked out may be found lacking by serious historians, the blockade of Southern shipping by the North, the South's embargo of its own cotton, and the destruction of the Southern economy by Sherman mean we should not take for granted that all of today's American blacks are...

    Do mtb shoes look proper if you wear the rest of the roadie look?

    Do MTB shoes look proper if you wear the rest of the roadie look? I tried some road shoes and SPD-SL pedals, and I'm not liking them. It's because there isn't even any rubber on the sole so you can't cross streets with the pedals under your arches, then clip in. The feet slip right off...

    Why do we want to grow the economy?

    Proponents of illegal immigration often say it will grow the economy. Consider, though. What if the number of workers, companies, imports, exports, goods and services being bought domestically, etc. doubled overnight by magic? Wouldn't everybody still make the same wage, assuming customers...

    It's only a 90 day ban till they're vetted-if i went to iraq they could easily find out from our gov

    If I went to Iraq, they could easily find out from our government if I had been involved with terrorist groups. For years on end, foreign Jihadis flocked into Iraq to fight. They didn't care about their families or homelands so much as they cared about blowing people up. There's probably no...
