Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Did I mention your low two digit IQ? This will correct that.

"You think slavery is right and ought to be extended; while we think it is wrong and ought to be restricted. That I suppose is the rub. It certainly is the only substantial difference between us." (December 22, 1860)

"As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy." (August 1, 1858)

"I have always hated slavery, I think as much as any abolitionist." (July 10, 1858)

"This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave." (April 6, 1859)

"I hate it because of the monstrous injustice of slavery itself. I hate it because it deprives our republican example of its just influence in the world." (October 16, 1854)

That sight was a continual torment to me; and I see something like it every time I touch the Ohio, or any other slave-border." (August 24, 1855)

"I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong. I can not remember when I did not so think, and feel." (April 4, 1864)

"Now, I confess myself as belonging to that class in the country who contemplate slavery as a moral, social and political evil, having due regard for its actual existence amongst us and the difficulties of getting rid of it in any satisfactory way, and to all the constitutional obligations which have been thrown about it; but, nevertheless, desire a policy that looks to the prevention of it as a wrong, and looks hopefully to the time when as a wrong it may come to an end." (October 7, 1858)

"Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it." (April 6, 1858)

"What I do say is, that no man is good enough to govern another man, without that other's consent. I say this is the leading principle - the sheet anchor of American republicanism." (October 16, 1854)

"We think slavery a great moral wrong, and while we do not claim the right to touch it where it exists, we wish to treat it as a wrong in the territories, where our votes will reach it." (March 6, 1860)

"I think slavery is wrong, morally, and politically. I desire that it should be no further spread in these United States, and I should not object if it should gradually terminate in the whole Union." (September 17, 1859)

"In 1841 you and I had together a tedious low-water trip, on a Steam Boat from Louisville to St. Louis. You may remember, as I well do, that from Louisville to the mouth of the Ohio there were, on board, ten or a dozen slaves, shackled together with irons.

Keep trying. You have nothing to counter the facts I present you, Nazi sympathizer, hater of Muslims, and village idiot. Your opinion of yourself is elevated as your ego, and in actuality you are a third rate opinionator, devoid of substance.

Well truth be known Lincoln never ran on freeing slaves. Freeing slaves was hugely unpopular to his political base. It was always about defeating states rights when said states broke away from the Union crushing the rebellion by violating the constitution in order to preserve the union. The freeing slaves thing happened only when the union was on the verge of defeat in a move to prevent Europe from recognizing the confederacy which would have sealed the deal for the south.

Th Whigs died and the Republicans came into being, represented by a a gangly guy in a tall hat. He ran on this: "I'm going to end slavery." Guess what? He ended slavery. The Whigs were no more.

Ted Cruz, and other Tea Party members ran on doing away with O'commiecare. They voted to do precisely that recently. "Fellow" Republicans opposed them, in the House and in the Senate. Those Republicans which not only voted with Reid against them, but trashed them at every opportunity in the meejah, are going to be primaried. Pri-mare-eed!

Either the Republican Party will be true to the people who elected them, or the people will elect others. If that still doesn't work, the people will start a new party and bury the bastards who call themselves that which Lincoln called himself.

Many lefties say that the 3/5ths clause/compromise was pro-slavery, anti-black etc. As usual, they can't think beyond their own stupid schnozes.

The 3/5 clause was emphatically anti-slavery! Read what Frederick Douglass thought of that clause.

The South viewed slaves as property, so the North said, OK, we're going to count chairs, wagons, horses, ears of corn etc. and add representation for our "property" too. The compromise reached..."3/5"...effectively cut in half the south's pro-slavery representation. Is that pro-slavery, or anti-slavery? It's plainly, anti-slavery.

So, you've learned something. That's good. Spread the truth rather than falsehoods.

The KKK? That was a Democrat thing.

I don't think RS was in Alpena when the cement plant was coating everything and everyone with dust, and a mysterious foam used to come down the river from Fletcher's way. But to Republicans it smelled like money. That nasty EPA making the plant put in dust scrubbers. Evil Big Brother.

The Triumph is running fine lately, off to Hubbard Lake. Hope there are no oil spills on the road or water.

That is NOT 'medicine', that is pure, unadulterated obstinacy. If you want any of us to take you seriously, start 'listening', instead of jerking your knee. Take your defense of Beck for instance, why would you present yourself as a reasonable person, and ignore factual statements. If one of MY 'heroes', take B.B. King for instance, turned out to be a pedophile or racist, my estimation of him would supercede my love of his music. Beck is not worth defending.

Just giving you two dumbasses your own medicine. Does it sound as stupid to you as it does to me?

Tough. Schtick in your ear.

Yes, protecting the Great Lakes is important. Shrill would rather make up phony sailor gibberish than attempt to understand what is really happening to our water. He is more in line with polluters and capitalist environmental destruction than he is about the actual environment he waxes nostalgic about when he is in his 'boaty', which must be the one in his bathtub with his rubber ducky. OUR Great Lakes is and should be above petty partisan babbling. We see by his adherence to Nazi posed propaganda and the filthy spewings of Glenn Beck, that he is beyond redemption.

RS has been reduced to feebly copying my shtick. That other gibberish he wrote yesterday is pretty much incomprehensible. I don't know what's happened to him recently, maybe a change in his Prozac.

Rshrill, why illustrate your ignorance. When your 'boaty' slogs through filthy tar sand 'oil', you will Henny Penny all the way to Benishek's office with indignant outrage. Or, is it orifice. Swine.
