Venting
Lately I've been venting a lot and I have reservations about airing dirty laundry on here.  I feel strongly that writing helps keep my sanity in part, and handwriting stinks for more than one reason.  My other reason for putting it in such a public place is...

I had hopes in general regarding my marriage until tonight.  It is becoming clear that my hopes are as naive as religion.  My wife places me somewhere between visiting the zoo and visiting relatives in Idaho.  She doesn't even consider any relationship I ma...

Life is...a bitch
My dad used to say that. It has never been so much of one as it is right now. Dave Skelton was dealt a raw deal in life. Yet, as I consider how bitchy life is, I immediately think, "I am whining about my first-world problems." But what is important in life?...

Why is it so hard to remember the Parties swapped after the Civil War?  When we talk about how the Democrats were pro-slavery/anti-black (or whatever), we are talking about the ancestors to modern-day Republicans.  Simple history people.
 
The Democratic Party has been waging war against Blacks since the election of the first Democratic President, Andrew Jackson who owned slaves. They were the party of slavery whose voters included the cotton farmers.

In their party platforms from 1840 to 1860, the Democrats supported slavery. In the 1860 elections, the country was deeply divided. Abraham Lincoln and his main Republican rival, William H Seward both wanted to abolish slavery. As we all know Lincoln won the nomination and later was elected President.

On the Democratic side, the party was split between Northern and Southern Democrats. The southern favorite, John Breckinridge wanted a Federal law protecting slave owners’ rights in the new states. His chief rival, Stephen Douglas was moderate and did not think a Federal law was needed. But he, like his rival Breckinridge, also wanted the state’s residents to decide whether or not to have slavery.

We all know the rest of the story. Lincoln’s election sparked the Civil War. After the war was over  and slaves were emancipated, the Democrats became the party of Jim Crow laws and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

The Jim Crow laws of enforced segregation started in about 1877 after the withdrawal of Union troops from the south. Many southern whites were resentful that their former slaves became their social equals and competed with them for jobs.

(7 min. watched so far). So the highest percentage in change wins? What if the audience is 99% Christian? How is that fair? What if the audience is 100% Muslim?
