  1. White Nationalist Rally in Virginia

    I'm a Cantwell libertarian, kindred spirit to @retrofade and @BSUTOP25 among others on the board.
  2. White Nationalist Rally in Virginia

    I'm not for tearing anything down. Your side is the one wanting to tear down all monuments, even those of Washington and Jefferson. Talk to them, not me, with your moral rationalizations.

    Your friend drew a weapon on an unarmed person?

    Maybe Jefferson wasn't the benevolent person everyone idolizes... But in the 1790s, Davis continues, “the most remarkable thing about Jefferson’s stand on slavery is his immense silence.” And later, Davis finds, Jefferson’s emancipation efforts “virtually ceased.” The Virginia abolitionist Moncure Conway, noting Jefferson’s enduring reputation as a would-be emancipator, remarked scornfully, “Never did a man achieve more fame for what he did not do.” http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/the-dark-side-of-thomas-jefferson-35976004/?no-ist=&=&=&preview=_page%3D2_no-ist&page=1

    The real question is what would Jefferson have done had he lived during the Recent Unpleasantness instead of dying in 1826? No one knows. But he was a slave owner. So being a traitor like Lee was more odious than being a slave owner like Jefferson. When looked through a lens of moral relativity, all of our leaders have faults that can be explained away.
  6. The senator is not going to resign: Chappelle-Nadal told KMOX’s Carol Daniel, “There is no way in hell that I’m resigning. There are legislators who have cheated on their wives, they have smoked in the legislature, in the state capitol. If they have not been asked to resign for those acts, which I do believe that cheating on your wife or your spouse is immoral, I am not resigning for a mistake that I made and that I’m owning up to.” http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2017/08/17/maria-chappelle-nadal-no-way-in-hell-resigning-facebook/ I can see her point. I think adulterers and smokers are immoral, too. Wonder what she thinks about philanderer MLK, abortion, etc.? I also think people preaching about morality shouldn't cuss, like using the word "hell".
  7. Don't Stonewall me

    Please let me know when this one is available.
  8. Sorry, you waited too long. You were forced into it. You don't really mean it.
  9. KUDO's Baltimore...

    Like Byrd and his membership with the KKK, MLK, had he lived longer, would have repented and embraced homosexuality.
  10. The only thing bothersome about Kathy Gifford and this state senator is the double standard. No lefties condemn them. I hope (and think) that the senator doesn't really wish for Trump to be assassinated. Yet since everyone parses Trump's every word, and holds him to it, maybe she should be held to her words, too. And made to squirm just a little. As for Kathy Griffin, she's an idiot and a vile creature. I did enjoy how Trump acted like his young son was traumatized by seeing his dad's severed head. I doubt that really happened, but it is funny to see this used against her.
  11. Well at least one person on the board is willing to condemn her actions.

  13. I officially feel like an old man

    And don't be a minute past 5PM!
  14. that donated land for schools, because the family name is "Lynch": http://www.oregonlive.com/education/index.ssf/2017/07/lynch_elementary_schools_will.html Let's not stop with theses few changes! Think big! Make Loretta Lynch and Marshawn Lynch change their names, too! (maybe Loretta can escape indictment with a new name!). Heck, along those lines, I think Sheila Jackson Lee ought to change her name, too!
