Situation Analysis, Are Democrats Trying to Prevent November?
(One of my biggest beefs with FoxNews is how they frame a solid finding as a question, in part to appear a little snarky, but also to be able to walk it back, should that “fact” meet approbation, as when the rest of the media, or Harry Reid, cries “Ouch!”. (We should never forget that like Hollywood actors, media types’ self-image depends on the approval | Read More »
States’ Rights, Then And Now.
Yesterday, my article purposely skirted the issue of states’ rights. John Brown would have been executed, whether he assaulted the Springfield Armory or not. In his missionary zeal for his abolitionist cause, he murdered five pro-slavery settlers at Pottawatomie Creek, Kansas on May 26, 1856. The ‘States’ Rights’ issue was never a simple one, and the America of the 1850s was being torn apart by | Read More »
Revolution or Civil War: The choice is ours!
We are nearing a crossroads in America at a very high rate of speed, and the brakes have failed! A decision will have to be made to yank the wheel to the Right or the Left. Either choice will have serious, long-lasting consequences, and the result will be felt around the world. “We the People” are in the drivers seat, and unfortunately, most of us | Read More »
Why? In honor of our brothers and sisters that have gone before us, that have paid the price for our freedom, for their families and loved ones that wonder, “Why?“ Here is the answer. Brothers in Arms…..Even Against Each Other Americans have always fought for freedom. Even against each other. We were a family divided. And family fights are always bitter. But, if the battle | Read More »
Lincoln The Racist: What Your Teacher Never Told You Part I [Closed]
“If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.”…Abraham Lincoln.

In all tenderness I say, HUMILITY is the currency of the Righteous, Let us publish PEACE not WAR
I do not speak of humility lightly. I suppose that the action of bowing petulantly with guile and deceit for the alleged purpose of gaining the respect and popularity among peers and those deemed elite, is an act worthy of being repudiated as nothing more than grandiose cowardice. I think that covers pretty much anyone who has held public office and has REJECTED the views | Read More »
Seven Score and Four Years Ago
The United States emerged from the Civil War a vastly different county. No longer could Democrats hinder economic progress so as to protect the slave system. Once most Democrats in Congress had gone with the Confederacy, Republicans met little opposition in enacting their pro-growth economic agenda: a national banking system and a national currency, free land for farmers in the Plains states, land-grant colleges, the | Read More »

The Gettysburg Address – Seven Score And Six Years Ago A Real President Sought To Unite America
November 19, 1863 President Abraham Lincoln stood before a crowd of people at the dedication of a National Cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Just a few short months before on July 1-3 The Union Army under the command of Major General George Meade met the Army of Northern Virginia under the command of General Robert E. Lee and before the battle was finished the bloodiest days | Read More »
Fighting To “Last Drop of Blood”
Hello All, CNN reports that the Taliban vows to fight “To The Last Drop of Blood”. Sounds like to me to be reminiscent of the Japanese at the end of WWII. If you remember the Japanese vowed to fight to the very last man, women, & child, even to the point of committing suicide either through “Seppuku” or “Kamikaze”. It is the whole reason why | Read More »
The impact of a book (open thread…)
As I was surfing my various regular web haunts this morning, I ran across an entry at NRO’s The Corner that resonated significantly with me. John J. Miller cites a couple of reader inputs to a blurb about Bruce Catton’s classic “Golden Book of the Civil War“. This reference sent me back, as that book was probably THE thing that triggered my interest in the | Read More »
Our schools don’t teach History
Our schools are no longer teaching US History. It is a pale imitation of US history at best. Ask a college student about the French & Indian War. They do not know about it. They are ignorant as to how this war inevitably led the Colonists to the Revolution. They want to teach us that the Native American was the equal of his European counterpart. | Read More »
When the Republicans nominated a Democrat for Vice President
Most history books written by Democrat professors downplay the fact that the Worst President Ever was a Democrat. Did the Democrats nominate him? No, he was the 1864 Republican nominee for vice president. Andrew Johnson – Andrew Jackson Johnson, to be precise – was the only southern Senator not to go with the Confederacy. For being strong on national security, this hardline Democrat was nominated | Read More »
Speaking of Separatist States…
With the Russian-Georgian conflict erupting over South Ossetia, I figure it’s a good time to recall the history of the Union-Confederate conflict over West Virginia. No, the situations are not really close to the same in terms of centuries of ethnic issues or international politics, but some of the themes are very concurrent. Both situations deal with a population split between affinities to their old | Read More »
Barack Obama Is Out of Focus
Earlier, this week, Barack Obama cancelled plans to visit wounded soldiers who were stationed in Germany, opting instead to “tour around a little bit.” As if it wasn’t enough that he was spending time campaigning in Europe, a continent that does not encompass the United States, he also managed to shun the people who have and still do fight for his right to freely campaign | Read More »
