What makes one a hero?

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 19:00:59 +0000

What makes one a hero? I learned the answer to that question when the traveling version of the Vietnam War Memorial – the Wall – was displayed in my community. While visiting the Wall, I talked to a veteran of the Vietnam War, during which time he told me just who were the heroes of the Vietnam War. The heroes were the men whose names were written on the Wall. In short, a hero is one who dies for a noble cause. The American soldiers who died in the Vietnam War are regarded as heroes because the cause that they(image)

The Straw Men of Confederacy Apologists

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 21:00:14 +0000

A disturbing trend has been taking place among the apologists for the old Confederacy. The latter have been using straw-man arguments against relocating of statues that honor the Confederacy. What these apologists don’t understand is that the Confederacy was a shameful part of U.S. history and should not be honored. Nor should members of the Confederacy be honored for being members of the Confederacy. That is why Americans all over the USA are calling for the removal of Confederate statues from places of honor. The same Americans have no objection to such statues being on museum property or on private(image)



About That So-Called “Southern Heritage”

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 23:04:26 +0000

Americans are routinely told that the Confederate flag represents Southern heritage. If that is true, then I want no part of Southern heritage. That is because the Confederate flag originated as a symbol of people who had declared war against the USA and who killed American soldiers. The reason that they fought against the USA was in order to keep black Americans enslaved. In case someone doubts that reason, I will quote from the Corner Stone speech given by Confederacy vice-president Alexander H. Stephens: “The new constitution has put at rest, forever, all the agitating questions relating to our(image)



Regarding Confederate Monuments

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 02:28:30 +0000

Once again, the fate of Confederate monuments is on the the front burner of public debate in America. From the DFW affiliate of CBS News: “The debate about Confederate statues in Dallas intensified on Monday as a group made up of predominantly African Americans called for the monuments to remain standing. Several cities across America have now begun to remove or talk about removing Confederate markers shortly after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville turned deadly. Former city council member Sandra Crenshaw thinks removing the statues won’t help. . . . Crenshaw, along with some Buffalo Solider historians and Sons(image)



Charlottesville: Avoidable Tragedy? OPEN THREAD

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 19:20:23 +0000

From The New York Times: On Sunday, Charlottesville tried to recover — as the police, in particular, came in for criticism. But others, including Mr. Kessler and Ms. Caine-Conley, openly wondered if the violence could have been prevented. “There was no police presence,” Ms. Caine-Conley said. “We were watching people punch each other; people were bleeding all the while police were inside of barricades at the park, watching. It was essentially just brawling on the street and community members trying to protect each other.” Sensing there might be trouble, the city tried to deny Mr. Kessler’s group a(image)

Saramucci: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow (OPEN THREAD)

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 18:55:02 +0000

From FoxNews: President Trump’s headline-grabbing communications director Anthony Scaramucci was shown the door Monday after just 11 days on the job – as retired Gen. John Kelly took command of the White House staff, moving swiftly to impose order on a West Wing gripped for weeks by infighting. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would not confirm reports that Kelly personally requested Scaramucci’s removal — but she made clear that the former Homeland Security secretary now has full control of the staff. “General Kelly has the full authority to operate in the White House, and all staff will report(image)
