Re: Your Daily WTF

The NYT is reporting: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein seriously considered wearing a wire to record Trump, so as to convince cabinet members that it was time to consider invoking the 25th Amendment, which allows the vice president and a majority of the cabinet to declare that the president is unfit to serv...

Nope. Many of those folks have believed for a long time that liberals run the DOJ.

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

Luca, you are trying to debate quantum physics with a first grader. Is it really worth the effort? Actually we are debating American History and human decency. You seem determined to deflect from both of those. Both of you are determined to justify one of the most abhorrent institutions and someone...

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

I don't care about his motivation. His moral opposition is overridden by his actions of fighting to maintain the status quo. What was the only policy in Virginia that needed defending? As opposed to the states in the Union? Sometimes being a leader means having to make a difficult or unpopular decis...

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

I believe his stature would have been diminished.

Which would have prevented him from taking a position in opposition.

Despite Luca's claims of his integrity.

He chose self interest over country.

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

Let me ask this question to clarify.

If Lee had taken a strong position against slavery, would that have enhanced or diminished his stature in the social circles in Southern aristocracy?

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

584372 Wabash, in the aristocratic circles of Southern society to which Robert E Lee belonged in the antebellum South (to say nothing of during the Civil War itself), expressing a moral opposition to slavery would not serve to "maintain his position." Quite the opposite, for obvious reaso...

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

That is true. He stated he wanted nothing to do with the CSA after the war. He never wore the uniform again. And demanded it not be worn in his presence.

And....He supported the Democrat that ran against Grant.

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

584366 Wabash. It was not a rhetorical question. Why would Lee have lied thusly? You are the one claiming he did not believe what he said he believed. How did you come to that conclusion? So he could maintain his position in the social order. That matters to people in those types of circles. To par...

Re: Myth of Robert E. Lee

Why would someone noted for his integrity lie in such a fashion? Is this a rhetorical question? 584362 then it is contradictory that you do not denigrate slave holders Washington or Jefferson, especially while showing such unflinching support for the current Slave Party of the 1800's,for which you ...
