LETS START AGAIN: MARYLAND should PARDON ABOLITIONIST WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON!

Several months ago I wrote a couple of blog posts on the little-known fact about abolitionist leader William Lloyd Garrison – he was jailed in Baltimore for criminal libel for calling out a slave trader. Garrison is my beau ideal as an agitator (The Liberator would surely have been a blog today.  Sometimes I look […]

STILL NO WORD from MD SECRETARY of STATE: WAS GARRISON PARDONED? HE SHOULD BE!

I have not received any word from the MD Secretary of State’s office on the pardon of William Lloyd Garrison.  I wrote this blog post and sent this email on April 17: Dear Secretary of State McDonough: I am a blogger for Virginia Right (www.varight.com) and a great admirer of the abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison.  […]

SHOULD MD GOVERNOR MARTIN O’MALLEY PARDON WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON? UPDATE: NO WORD YET!

Should/Has abolitionist leader William Lloyd Garrison be pardoned by the State of Maryland?  I am researching this issue as we speak with an email sent to the MD Secretary of State’s office today.  But there is a bit of background: In 1830, Garrison co-edited a newspaper in Baltimore, MD that among other things supported abolition […]

Friendly Warning: COS before the Virginia General Assembly (Again)!

I dearly wish I did not have to be so negative about the Article V Convention of States issue. It would be nice if the states and people could take back their founding document and restore the Republic through a COS. But the risk is too great. And I see my delegate, Chris Peace, is […]

I Agree 100% On THIS: The Oberlin Rescuers Should be Pardoned Along With ALL Convicted Under the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act!

A professor named Steven Lubet wrote this article asking President Trump to pardon the Oberlin Rescuers – and I agree 100%! Here’s why in Prof. Lubet’s words: In the spring of 1859, Charles Langston and Simeon Bushnell were convicted in a Cleveland federal court of violating the Fugitive Slave Act, which allowed slave hunters to […]

What A Wonderful Idea (See What An Elected Libertarian Can Do?): Occupational Licensing and Registration Reform

In Nebraska, the only state in the Union with a unicameral (and officially non-partisan) legislature, there is a former GOP state legislator (the members of the unicameral legislature are called senators and that is what I will title her hitherto) named Senator Laura Ebke.  Ebke actually comes from a political family – her father was […]

Sports Imperialism Could Take a Huge Hit in the 2018 Olympic Games!

It appears it is really gonna happen:  NO NHL players in the Olympic Games in South Korea 2018.  Here’s some confirmation: Now some background for my new readers from a prior Sanders blog post: One of the most clever (because of its radicalism) strategies of William Lloyd Garrison and the abolitionists was the adoption of […]

I Want to Encourage African-Americans in Hanover to Support Elected School Boards: End a Vestige of Segregation!

I realize this is dangerous.  But the pro-elected school board in Hanover needs what frankly is a ridiculous number of signatures (the law should have been 15% or 1000 or maybe 15oo signatures but I am grateful for the effort to bring about elected school boards in Virginia.) and we need all, as abolitionist William […]

It’s March and we are on the verge of the most wonderful time of the year for sports and office pool fans (Yes the office pool should be but probably is not legal in most states and winners must pay the evil income tax on the winnings) and that is the NCAA Basketball Tournament. And […]

Time for Sensible Americans to Take a Good Look at the Olympic Basketball situation: It’s a disgrace!

I started these words before the USA-Serbia men’s basketball game.  And I refuse to watch any of it.  I am right now (after the game) watching Miracle.  (By the way the job interview scene to start out Miracle is required for all job seekers – the Herb Brooks character was poised, confident, knew his stuff […]

You’re Wrong Senator Sanders! This Country was NOT Founded on Racist Principles!

Senator Bernie Sanders came to Liberty University.  Most of his speech was unexceptional and but one comment made me see red.  I actually lost some if not most of my respect for the candidate with the same last name as mine.  Sanders (the Senator not the blogger) said the US was founded on “racist principles”; […]

No Union With Slaveholders! How ‘Bout Instead: No Rooting for Sports Imperialists! (1)

One of the most clever (because of its radicalism) strategies of William Lloyd Garrison and the abolitionists was the adoption of the rallying cry:  No Union With Slaveholders Its radicalism was as simple as it was breathtaking:  The free states should simply secede from the Union and establish a free commonwealth where slavery would be […]

JOHN FEINSTEIN has the RIGHT IDEA; I MIGHT even AGREE with IT!

I regard sportswriter John Feinstein with the utmost of respect and some admiration.  Feinstein has written several books on sports-related topics.  Tuesday he called for a new source of persons for the NCAA selection committee – venerable, respected, retired coaches and true basketball persons like Bobby Cremins, Denny Crum, etc: Who should be on the […]
