Trkngmomoe: What's Next For Greece?
Trkngmomoe: Bernie Sanders' Wake-up Call
I'm a bit confused, just a few days ago Oxy was advising the Greek people to behave like good Untermensch and kneel before the fiscal and morally superior Germans. Now they are being saddled with the responsibility of leading a worldwide revolution against the Austerians. We should thank the...

Nice. but check your syllable count.
I got it.
Now that makes sense. I would believe that.

There's an old joke about a guy who gets on a plane 1st class & finds himself next to a parrot that proceeds to get really drunk, cursing out the stewardess "bitch, get me another gin & tonic and make it fucking fast this time", and so on. Seeing the parrot get away with it, the guy...
There have been forces at work for a very long time changing our perceptions of the Civil War. We have allowed ourselves to be duped. There remain numerous statues, buildings and roads named after Confederate traitors. We have a U.S. Senate building named after racist and segregationist...
Confederate apologists have had over a century to convince us that the Civil War was about state's rights and not slavery. This was done despite the fact that slavery and the superiority of the white race over the black race was the cornerstone of the reasons the South wanted to leave. Instead...
This source says that "maybe scores" of blacks were in the Confederate army, but "anything beyond that is highly conjectural and suspect" as rm says. It does mention the Louisiana regiment and "maybe one from South Carolina"....
I wear my emotions on my sleeve,
my weaknesses down on my knees,
my psychoses are my pet peeves,
and behind a trail of my beliefs.
You think I'm schizo, whether on or in,
but I'm quite certain I'm OUT of my mind.
It would be huge. I thought it was going to happen in the U.S. during the financial crisis but I think we saw, very quickly, how the political system coalesces around the financial system and how many people actually support this. Heck, here everybody knew darned well that their neighbor's...
I thought that the Confederacy just authorized the drafting of slaves, not that it made them any promise of freedom. But I'm the guy who said that the existence of black Confederate soldiers was "well documented", so I may not be the best authority.

As I said, "Carter-Ford's the only recent one I see as questionable..."
Re: Hillary, no, she wasn't particularly confident early on. Formidable yes, but a bit leaden. Anyway, 2008 quite bores me.
Carter manly? I don't care who he was running against, manly and Carter just are not in the same sentence. Obama more manly than Romney? I don't think so. Bush #1 just kicked some ass in the Gulf War and was beat by a guy wearing Dockers.
Of course, confidence is key in any election or...
I remember when I learned how conservative Maine is. Being on the west coast, I just thought Maine and Vermont and all those other little states were basically moderate to liberal. But I think Maine is more like Alaska.
I think there's a whole lot of people hoping he'll be "coming to an arena near you soon."
I didn't feel this way about Obama n 2008, but I'd love to be Bernhead and just follow his campaign around on its tour.
