GREAT REVIEWS for COPPERHEAD the MOVIE! GO SEE IT and find out the TRUTH about LINCOLN!

Copperhead the movie, in its first week in Richmond, is garnering nice reviews from several sources. Here’s the Washington Post’s take on Copperhead: The story offers uncommon insights on the endlessly parsed period in history, but its execution sometimes falls short. Both the production quality and the persistent, sentimental soundtrack create a made-for-TV feel. And […]

IF UKIP gets 34% of the VOTE in a 2015 GENERAL ELECTION, NIGEL FARAGE becomes PM! JUST TEN more POINTS!

This article has a calculator to determine what the vote percentage in a British General Election would be required for UKIP to win the General Election in 2015.

LINCOLN MOVIE found to have A HISTORICAL FLAW! It sure does: It portrays LINCOLN as a HERO!

It is ironic that there was allegedly found in the Lincoln movie (filmed in Richmond!) a historic flaw:  That two of the four congressmen from Connecticut voted against the real 13th Amendment!  (Not the first 13th Amendment that would have maintained slavery!)  The Connecticut Congressman Joe Courtney reports as such in the Huffington Post: He […]

THE ABOLITIONISTS – NIGHT TWO: DISAPPOINTING

I awaited with baited breath the second part of PBS’ American Experience, The Abolitionists.  I thought part one was very good.  But I was bitterly disappointed with part two.  Let me start with what I liked: I think their discussion of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law was excellent.  The rendition of Anthony Brown back to […]

ABRAHAM LINCOLN a VAMPIRE HUNTER? OKAY, I’ll BITE! CERTAINLY ENOUGH BLOOD was SHED through HIS POLICIES!

This is something I wrote this summer and decided it wasn’t right.  Now I feel better about it since the Lincoln issue has arisen due to the OTHER Lincoln movie: This wonderfully satirical movie portraying the Sixteenth President as a vampire hunter made me laugh.  It’s about time Lincoln got some ridicule.  He certainly needs […]

POLITICAL MALPRACTICE? NOT RON PAUL but maybe KEN BLACKWELL INSTEAD!

Former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, who I admire and respect very much and who ought to have been Ohio Governor, turns a clever and nice phrase about Ron Paul’s speech in this column found at Townhall: Congressman Ron Paul has just delivered his valedictory address in the House of Representatives. And he has […]

WHAT”S WITH THE SECESSION THING? THE REAL QUESTION IS: IS SECESSION LEGAL in A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC?

There is apparently a resurgence in interest in secession from the Union.  Apparently nearly 750,000 Americans have signed a petition at the White House website calling for some sort of secession from the Union!  It is amazing.  Certainly President Obama should seek out ways to reach out to those willing to advise the White House […]

WILL THE LAST BUSINESS IN CALIFORNIA PLEASE TURN OUT THE (ICLEI-APPROVED) LIGHT BULB?

It appears that, while still incredibly far from success, the secession movement proposed by county supervisor Jeff Stone of Riverside County is still on the tracks. It is reported the Riverside County Board of Supervisors agreed to endorse secession provided no tax monies were used to promote it: Elected officials in Riverside County endorsed a […]
