On the Confederacy

Much has been discussed on the confederate flag lately and since I am not a southerner by birth I must offer my reflection on what happened and spread some light on these men and women who died fighting for a cause.  These incredibly brave men, on both sides, fought utilizing Napoleanic style warfare, simply meaning lining up men, shoulder to shoulder, with every single one of them knowing full well that survival rate was minimal.  They were literally ordered to die.  Why?  because the strategy was that the side with the most men still alive wins.  And it was true up until 1864 when new guns were introduced.  In 1864 The North bought 100's of thousands of weapons introduced as the first repeater rifles.  The war ended abruptly, the south could not afford nor produce the rifles.  And they still lined up Napoleonic style to their deaths.  These brave men in the confederacy were born into the slave way of life as it had been ongoing for the previous 200 years.   An infant is only going to become what he or she is taught. They were simply following their constitutional right to overthrow a government that was trying to tell them what to do.  Of course, in hindsight, we all know slavery was wrong and Completely immoral.  However, Unless you are someone willing to go to war and your commander says you will die today, keep your mouth shut about what they were fighting for.  There are many people alive today that had ancestors stand shoulder to shoulder and get mowed down by a spencer repeater. I highly doubt anyone would volunteer for that today.

American Way: Society is changing rapidly

American Way: Society is changing rapidly - from Rachel Dolezal to gay marriage - and both sides need to take a breath and see things from the other's perspective

Pretend for a minute you're a professional black woman living in Washington, DC. During your lifetime, things have mostly improved. But everywhere, vestiges of the past still haunt you. Living in Washington, DC, you probably have to take Jefferson Davis highway once in a while -- a road named after the president of the Confederacy. That's just one of the daily reminders.

Many early philosophers like Socrates and Aristotle  felt  that the world was a two-tiered world consisting of our mortal plane and the plane of the gods who looked down over us and often sent messages about what we should do in particular situations and that the ideal was to have a concern for the welfare of society as a whole.   Plato also felt there were gods or superior beings to whom we shou…

NPR's Melissa Block interviews Washington Post opinion writer Jonathan Capehart about his column, " 'Hands Up, Don't Shoot' Was Built On A Lie." Capehart says he regrets the building of a movement on the false rumors that Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Mo., while putting up his hands in surrender.

Race Baiting And Ferguson

Race Baiting And Ferguson

Monday, March 16, 2015

The most recent news from Ferguson concerns what Eric Holder has rightly called the “ambush shooting” of two police officers outside the city’s police department. This incident occurred in the wake of two detailed reports released by the Department of Justice. The first report deals in depth with the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The report recommended that the case against him be closed. The second DOJ report contained a scathing indictment of the sad state of affairs within the entire criminal justice system of Ferguson. The combined effect of these two reports is likely to make matters worse in Ferguson by combining the back-handed exoneration of Darren Wilson with the unstinting condemnation of the City of Ferguson.

Is Congress Enabling The 'Disabling' Of America?

Sometime next year Social Security’s $150 billion disability-insurance program will become insolvent. Congressional loosening of benefit requirements, and more-importantly allowing people to remain on disability effectively for life once they gain it (less than 1% of the people on disability return to the workforce in any given year) make the problem one that is utterly intractable without major changes. And so Congress' bipartisan Social Security Advisory Board has urged shifting funds to the Social Security disability fund from the Social Security retirement fund.
