Re: Obituaries

So sad that the great Mel Tillis is gone. He found a way to surmount a handicap big time.

Re: Goodlatte Must Go

Hallelujah! The evil sonufabitch Goodlatte is https://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/virginias-bob-goodlatte-not-running-re-election not running for reelection . I so hope a good and strong candidate in the Democratic party will step up and, at long last, give us good representation in the Congress....

Re: Texas, First Baptist Church

He was stopped by a plumber with a rifle. A good guy with a gun. Everything in your posting is idiotic and cruel, the worst of which is above. Twenty six people, now dead, would disagree with a birdbrained statement like "He was stopped ..." Our challenge is to make and enforce rules that...

Re: $$$Democrat Party Insanity$$$

Idiot, it's the "Democratic Party". That's its legal name.
People do not slur your vicious little tribe with "Republic Party."

Nice ad, though.

Drivel.
That makes no sense at all.
I cannot agree or disagree ... there is nothing there.

Re: BANG !

Great Dutch video! Keep 'em coming, Juggler. And Crux's "protection" and "defense against tyrants" arguments are just plain stupid. They are divorced from all reality and fact. We in the US have more firearms at home than anywhere else. Does that make us safest? Nope, we're the m...

Re: Poll: Is Donald Trump a Good President?

I find those pictures offensive. I find them to be uplifting and an ideal way of respectfully communicating an important message that we all need to hear ... that the African American segment of our population suffers indignities and death at the hands of police in ways that the rest of us do not. ...

Re: BANG !

About a fifth of the American population believes bullshit ravings like the preceding post. And always will. So it's up the other 4/5ths of the population, the sane portion, to work work work to keep our country free and on a road to progress. Our guard was let down and Trumpists are running the sho...

Re: Poll: Is Donald Trump a Good President?

Suddenly, someone realizes that none of this has anything to do with the original protest over cops murdering unarmed black people ... To me, and clearly to many other people of good will, we keenly recognize the point of the gesture. That's why I support it. With others who are not African America...

Re: Poll: Is Donald Trump a Good President?

Idiotic. The flag is not the "political football." The political football is the opinion that African Americans suffer unnecessary violence and death at the hands of some irresponsible local governments and police ... because white racists cannot stand an "uppity nigger" on a kne...

Yes, http://wypr.org/post/us-house-moves-ban-epa-enforcing-chesapeake-bay-pollution-limits this evil sonofabitch must go.

Re: The trashing off Lee and Jackson

The Robert E. Lee Memorial Episcopal Church has changed its name back to its historic and original Grace Episcopal Church. I had no dog in this fight and am happy with private parties doing what they like on their property, honoring or dishonoring those who fought for slavery and insurrectionist sym...

Re: The trashing off Lee and Jackson

Odd logic. The 13th Amendment was finally in place for only 3 months before the end of the Civil War. Nobody of substance believes it would have been proposed, passed by both houses of Congress, and ratified by the requisite number of states had not the Civil War occurred. Slavery would have persist...

Well argued ... I love when a good case is presented, even if I don't quite agree on all the fine details. They are, after all, just details and agreement on the big general principles is pretty good. But you are wrong. You have not shifted from third person to first person narrative. You have shift...

Thanks, Coondog and Fangz. Your postings a re coherent and well argued. Forgive me, but my take is a little askew of yours. ⋅ "Destroy monuments?" That's mere hyperbole. I'm always against destroying works of art. I favor moving monuments to slavery and those who defended it to p...

Re: The trashing off Lee and Jackson

Letter to those who raise the Confederate flag Every time I see a Confederate flag in front of a house, I have a thought about starting a conversation with the man or woman, presumably a fellow American, who feels a need to display that thing 152 years after the Civil War. Have not done so. And tha...
