We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
This is OT. I had never read this before and it is an interesting allegation:
Did Election Fraud Help Win the Civil War?
A quote in the post says:
" Worse, the Republican Party took a drubbing in the November midterm elections. Kentucky was carried for the Union using totally desperate tactics. At each polling place, there were detachments of Union troops. When a Democrat arrived to vote, the officer in command warned him that he could not guarantee his safety on the way home. Most of the time, the man decided not to vote. Kentucky’s fraudulently elected delegation enabled the Republicans to retain control of the House of Representatives. If the Democrats had won, they would have had the power to cut off funding for the war."
I still say the race card is wearing out.
I hope you're right, but the fact that ANYBODY listens to ANYTHING the supposedly reverend Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson says is evidence against that. I might also say that the fact that man with no qualifications was elected as president only because he is "black" is also evidence against that assumption (though it could be read to be supportive, too).
You persist in thinking of "racism" as a moral failing similar to covetousness. It is not. It is yet another name given by socialists to their enemies. "Racist" is a status assigned by moral authorities, similar to the status of "kulak" assigned by the international socialists who once governed Russia, or "untermenchen," assigned by the national socialists who once governed Germany, or "capitalist roader or" "bad element," assigned by the Maoist socialists. "Racist" is assigned to anyone whose demonization may benefit socialism. And like kulak, because it is not subject to proof, facts, or evidence, nor is it bound by any philosophy or morality, it can never be shed.
"Racism" is simply what "racists" do, every day, in every action, including breathing and sleeping. Every action--especially refutation--by a racist proves the assignment correct.
It's not a racist I've become - more like a snobby elitist.
When I meet a person who puts race, sex, whatever ahead of logic, honor, or decency - I immediately dismiss him or her as a fool. A corrupt, weak-minded fool, capable of evil thought and deed. Color / race has nothing to do with this assessment.
Maybe far worse - even 2nd hand conversations overheard are encouraged to be reported, since they are deemed 'derogatory'.
There has even been prosecutions due to Facebook postings, which, is troubling. Defenseless and cowled, the law abiding population of the Commonwealth have delineated to the cattle status, herded as their leaders deem.
