Quote of the Day

"If I thought this war was to abolish slavery, I would resign my commission and offer my sword to the other side." --slave-holding Union General Ulysses S. Grant

The So called "Civil War" was not a Civil war at all; the definition of a civil war is :"two or more factions fighting for control of the National government". The 11 States fighting for the Confederacy were NOT interested in taking over the Federal Government; rather they wished to secede to form their own Confederacy of States that retained their sovereign powers as enumerated under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Northern States had instituted a system of tariffs that benefited them at the cost of the Southern states. They were, in essence strangling the commerce of the Southern portion of the United States to benefit their own economies. They were also trying to impose their own vision of states rights as being subservient to the Federal Government to the detriment of the sovereignty of the individual States as envisioned by the Founders. I believe that, had any of the Founding Fathers been alive at the time of the conflict; it is almost certain that most of them would have fought on the side of the Confederacy.

Slavery was and is one of the most abhorrent institutions that ever existed on this Continent, but the fact is that slavery was already dying out and probably would not have lasted more than another 50 years at most.

It is interesting to note that the most fervent proponents of slavery at the time were members of the Democratic party; indeed even up to the time of the Civil Rights battles for the equal treatment of the Black race, the most strident voices against the CR Acts were all Democrats; that is why it is puzzling to me to note that the Black portion of our population are so overwhelmingly supportive of the Democratic Party. Whenever the "Race Card" is used; it is trotted out by those that have never really aided the Black race in any just manner; rather it is used to keep that population beholding to the Party for their very sustenance by those that would hold them down from reaching their full potential as free human beings by treating them as somehow not capable of reaching a higher state of equality by dint of their own hard work.

Does racism still exist? YES, it most certainly does. But the most prevalent form of it exists as the slavery of low expectations and use of racial excuses playing on "White Guilt" for past injustices for present conditions.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.

I wish to express some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this circumstance. Because of looking out through the the web and meeting suggestions which are not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was well over. Being alive without the presence of answers to the problems you've solved by way of your article is a crucial case, and ones which might have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across your web blog. Your primary ability and kindness in playing with every aspect was helpful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a point like this. I can also at this time look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for the specialized and amazing guide. I won't think twice to endorse your web site to anybody who would need care about this problem.
