Re: I agree with JoelCairo

Nothing you write disproves what I said. Never said the GOP had a monopoly on racism. But are you arguing that the Southern Strategy didn't exist?

Good luck with that.

Yeah. They had no right to leave the Union. That's why they went to war.

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

You don't get why I mentioned Himmler et al. That's ok. As for LBJ, name one of your party who ever did anything like he did for blacks? Yup, it's easier to play your game if you ignore Nixon and Reagan and the Bushes.

But, then, Republicans [more]

Scotuscare Good for Democracy

The Supreme Court today snuffed out a move by corrupt legislatures to Constitutionalize their corrupt practice of gerrymandering.

The state n question was Arizona, but for us Californians, it meant our efforts, driven by a former Republican [more]

Re: For Those Who Can Access Facebook

Hey, better to read biting satire than hopes that oneself be drowned in the Louisiana bayous by white-robed patriots, as just happened to me on another board.

Re: I agree with JoelCairo

You bring a smile to my face, TMIN. Thank you. Though I was raised in a Southern state, so have been offended all my life by their flag, which had a rebirth in the Sixties. And do know a little more about its origins and evolution and revival as a [more]

NBC Fires Trump -- Breaking News

NBC has just severed business with Trump. What will happen next?

Re: For Those Who Can Access Facebook

Thank you for introducing us to Betty Bowers. Brilliant. If you tap the picture, you get the next in a long array of telling comments on the depravity and amorality of the Right.

One I liked especially was a tweet:

Re: Don't stop with the flags

I think you mean pre-Civil War accomplishment, but that would only be for Lee, and I think his story could just as easily be that of a man who risked and lost everything through a very bad decision.

And, frankly, he's lucky he wasn't tried [more]

Don't stop with the flags

Don't stop with eradicating all Confederate flags.

To be meaningful, it must be the start, not the end.

Of a campaign to put it where it belongs -- in history, in the past, and out of the present.

That flag is a symbol of a [more]

Re: Support for gay marriage

Good point. Didn't the Court, when they ruled on DOMA, say they didn't want to tackle the big question because they wanted to see what would happen? And didn't Scalia whine that this might accelerate matters? Haven't read yesterday's opinions, but [more]

Re: ScaliaCare -- Shameful Opinion shows GOP's Fate

Not really. In a thousand page document? I could give you a number of quotes from other cases where Scalia supported such practices. His opposition hD nothing to do with the particulars of his argument which was weak and which he weakened further by [more]

Re: Puzzled in Portland

Why would anyone think that an extension of marriage rights to any two people would open up the possibility that marriage would extend to more than two people, or a person and an animal? How silly.

Re: When Erasing Symbols of Slavery...

The words to guide us should be nuance and perspective, which is absent from the OP. All the founders failed on slavery, but does that make the Declaration and Constitution useless and meaningless? I wouldn't blame Jefferson for the Civil War, nor [more]

Re: Jeff Davis and Robt E Lee

Well, as we were taught in Virginia public schools, Lee honored his state first, country second. So when his state decided to take the path of treason, he felt the only honorable thing he could do was obey his first loyalty.

Re: Some things are just too funny.

Way to go, GOG. Cheering corporate criminality, exploitation of their customers. It's what the GOP wants, eh? It's exercising the "liberty and freedom" of the Stars & Bars, eh?
