A place to save little tidbits that might be useful.
One of the big generals recently affirmed that “Robert E. Lee was a traitor.” I forget which one, but one of the top generals that Trump stupidly appointed who then jumped on him with both feet. Where did he learn that business about “treason”? At West Point? I hope not. But any body who has such a simple-minded view of great issues of history and of human affairs is very certainly not qualified to command an army. What if Churchill or Eisenhower and their lieutenants had been that ignorant? We would all be goose-stepping, which is probably what this general would prefer anyway.
Things run in cycles. It is the nature of the cosmos. The revolution will devour itself, though we may not be here to see it. Half the country is on our side, and perhaps more, if the corruption of the election is considered. Meanwhile, as I determined fifty years ago to not go into a POW camp, so I have determined today. Some things are not worth putting up with.
“Reparations for slavery,” which is nothing but a criminal extortion racket, will be a major push of the new Democratic regime. It will easily pass the House of Representatives. Enough Republicans in the Senate will support it for it to become law. After all, it will make them feel morally superior, follow long-established Republican policy, and it’s not their money they are spending.
No living person has ever suffered from slavery. Only the oldest even remember Jim Crow. The top black politicians, like Obama and the new Vice-President Harris never had any connection to American slavery. They are phony African Americans, phony in the “American” part.
But I have a question about who will get the money. Kamala Harris has a Jamaican father who brags that his people were not slaves but slave owners. Does she get the money or have to pay?
