"Racism, which was manifested in slavery, isn't this country's 'original sin'. Racism is America's preexisting condition, which persists and continues to manifest itself in a variety of ways to this day."

"The diff, of course, betw, say, PETA and the anti-Vaxxers, is that the religion of the latter has been shown to be wholly false: vaccination does not ans never has caused autism. The A-Vaxs' central claim is not up for debate, at least not in…"

Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address

Posted on June 20, 2017 at 8:00am 17 Comments

I find this to be the greatest inaugural address ever given in American history.

Fellow-Countrymen:

At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which…

Some Thoughts on Immigration, Globalization of Labor, Markets

Posted on June 17, 2017 at 2:28pm 3 Comments

This subject has often been controversial in American history, due to the fact that moderate voices of reason, which are the majority, are drowned out by a passionate flock of angry birds on both sides of the aisle.

Let's get some things established, though, before we continue. America has always been a nation of immigrants. As George Washington once said, "the bosom of America is open to receive not only the opulent and respectable stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all…

Becoming More Liberal As I Age

Posted on June 15, 2017 at 10:00am 7 Comments

There's an old saying that "liberalism is a luxury for the young, and folks become more conservative as they age." This has not been the case with me.

I came from a working-class white background, adored Newt Gingrich and Pat Buchanan, and read the National Review with fervor. I had a chip on my shoulder, due to my poverty and lack of opportunity, and sense that the…

How Do We Deal with Confederate Monuments and Flags?

Posted on June 8, 2017 at 10:30am 11 Comments

I have four ancestors who fought for the Union during the American Civil War, and two who fought for the Confederacy. Of these, only two of them (Frederick Zimmer and Nathaniel King, both of NYC) volunteered. The rest were conscripts. One of them, a Phillip Mueller, actually deserted his NY Regiment, because he was a pacifist (and had come to America, from Germany, in order to escape military service). During the war, about 6 percent of Union troops were conscripts, and about 12-15% of…
