Uhh... no. Anyone with even a hint of knowledge of 20th century Soviet history knows that the USSR failed completely on its own. They would have collapsed with Raygun in office, and they would have collapsed with the corpse of Millard Fillmore in office.

I laughed...

Good. That was the idea.

don't worry, we're laughing at you, not with you.

Which was also when Evangelical Christians campaigned for equal rights for women, prison reform, improved working conditions for workers and the expansion of universal, publicly funded education. Funny how times have changed, eh?

Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.~Ronald Reagan

You "ignorant" retard... That is a bastardized quote from Mark Twain:
"The trouble with the world isn't that people know too little, but that they know so much that just ain't so."
~Mark Twain

So... Now you are showing us that "Ronnie" was a plagiarist, or, you are just too stupid to recognize it?

I don't really care where the original quote came from, the fact is it's a truism.

You might want to pick up a copy of James Oakes, Freedom National: The Destruction of Slavery in the United States, 1861-1865. It'll go a long way in dispelling some of the myths you appear to be teaching.

Like what? I've read several reviews of the book (have not read it yet, though), and it does not appear to contradict anything that I said above.

You do remember that pinkie has a filter that basically polarizes any data to fit the polarity he choses, right? It really doesn;t matter WHAT goes in, as only ONE thing comes out of that filter.

More important, I think we all know why pinkie is staying out of the soapbox for the last few days.

I think what happened in Newtown just sux...

But when I heard of the guy a couple days before in Florida (I think) who, with his CCL and gun, decided to complain about some loud music coming from a car of "blacks", felt threatened, then shot into the car, killing one... I couldn't help but think of pinkie. Looks like a well fed Southern Christian Redneck too.

Yeah, I work at two hospitals AND I'm trying to get a couple of pieces of art for a show next month....I just don't have the time for your stupid shit.

Read the book and you'll see what I'm talking about with Lincoln and the EP.

Please tell me about how the objectives and means by which Lincoln began emancipation in 1863 contradict anything that I typed up-thread.
