    How Tennessee Was Built as taught by Donald Trump

    No. Of course not. But here he chose to describe the building of the state, the taming of the land. He put himself to that task and it is an insult to omit the part that slaves played.

    Which of us have which? I admit Trump is a President who I think is woefully inept, even though there are some things he has done I like. I can honestly say I don't hate him.

    Oh and if questioning why slavery was not mentioned by a President when describing the building of a slave state is pouring out hatred, and seems so to someone with the forum name of civilwarbuff, its very interesting at least to me.

    I don't hate him one bit. You must have worked your fingers to the bone remonstrating those in forums who wrote stuff about the previous President. It could practically of been a full time job. Thank goodness you mostly just have to worry about me now.

    Those poor slave owners. That doesn't have any explanation of why the President did not mention slavery.

    Roseanne Barr and her comment that got her show fired

    It has to do with our national shame of slavery and racial injustice through all of our earlier history, strongly enforced up to the 1960's and lingering racist and mean stereotyping. Its not surprising that a characterization of a race as something subhuman which was used to justify the cruelest institution of slavery is rightly regarded as an ugly thing. It is a reminder to people ofAfrican ancestry of a society that gave next to no hope to people because of their race. I am a Christian but recall knowing this was so when very much an unbelieving, unchurched teen. I know it even better now.
  7. I watched a rally held by the President in Nashville yesterday evening. Towards the end he described the early history of the now state of Tennessee. The settlers carving out farms, subduing the wilderness. The heroic Davy Crockett. The great President Andrew Jackson. Apparently it happened without the toil of slaves because none were mentioned. Does he not grasp how much the back baking work of slaves was relied upon by this country? Or did he choose to set it aside? I can't imagine giving the shortest history survey of our country's development that fails to address the slaves and slavery. I was looking for a transcript and hope one is available soon.

    I am too busy restraining myself right now.

    Who did they compare to an ape? if no other Christian here knows of and doesn't call Barr's written comments what they are, ugly racism, I will be ashamed.

    Hopefully you hear from some other Christians here. I don't think you would agree with me if I said the surface of the Sun is hot. Hopefully, in keeping with what is consistent with the faith I am not going to be alone in stating unequivocally that Barr's statement was an ugly racist remark.

    What are Valerie Jarrett's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood? I am not familiar.

    Roseanne Barr and her comment that got her show fired

    Comparing African Americans to apes is about the oldest,ugliest, racist, vile, ignorant acts. It is indefensible.

    Roseanne Barr and her comment that got her show fired

    The part about "and the planet of the apes had a baby" is the ugly old racist comparison of people of African ancestry and apes. That's the predominant reason Barr had to go. The woman, Valerie Jarrett, is African American. Whatever has or hasn't happened in consequence of other incidents, that one by Barr had to and should have caused any employer to cut the ties.

    Idiot of the Day

    My best friend in high school was told by his parents one day halfway through our senior year that they were moving to Ohio. My friend also had a younger sister. His father was a welder. What his parents said was he and his sister weren't going with them. They were tired of parenting. They rented their house and his parents had paid the rent through some of the summer by which time my friend was to have figured how to support himself. They sent the sister to an older brothers to live with his family. My friend was of course hurt. But a really good guy. He figured it out and didn't hold a grudge. He married a very nice girl, worked as a civilian employee in the local Coast Guard Yard as a ship fitter. Bought a home, they raised two children. The story of the 30 year old who didn't want to move out made me think of my friend. I was his best man too.

    The Revelation its ice crystals.

    I came across a cult years ago. Agriholtra or some such name. They were purifying the atmosphere by burning these round balls like incense, about the size of pool balls. A principal ingredient was cow dung. They had an older bearded leader and lived communally in a farm. They printed their own literature and I delivered their paper while in the employ of a paper distribution company. Whenever I went they were busy rolling cow dung balls.
