CONGRATS to a HUGE UPSET (ALMOST as BIG as BRAT!) LARRY HOGAN: Governor of MARYLAND! NOW that there is a GOP GOVERNOR in MD there is only ONE THING TO DO: PARDON WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON!

I must congratulate the new Governor of Maryland:  Larry Hogan.  Along with Boyd Rutherford, his running mate, now Lt. Governor, my hat is off to both of you!  It is great to see a Republican win this election.  I almost despaired to see the day.  Now, I need to help the new chief executive out […]

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 […]

The EU, UK, UKIP, the WAR ON COAL and TERRY McAULIFFE…

Boy, that’s a mouthful! We have had for weeks emails to me (because I am signed up so millions of others get them too) from the Cuccinelli campaign about the War on Coal.  And they’re right: Here’s the video of McAuliffe saying not another coal-fired plant. Here and here are McAuliffe with climate scientist Prof. […]

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 […]

CYPRUS has TOLD us the TIME! FARAGE is RIGHT: the EU is an ECONOMIC PRISON!

My blogging hero, William Lloyd Garrison, once said, “John Brown has told us the time.”  I would say to paraphrase that phrase for our time, that “Cyprus has told us the time.”  It is time for us to control spending and debt or someday this will happen to us. UKIP leader Nigel Farage was quoted […]

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 […]

THE FIRST NIGHT of THE ABOLITIONISTS on PBS was QUITE GOOD and BETTER than I EXPECTED!

I just finished watching The Abolitionists and I will say that it was quite good. I was pleased to see the centrality of faith in the abolitionist message but concerned about the treatment of John Brown.  He was portrayed in a sympathetic light.  But this is early – it is a three part miniseries so […]

WATCH the ABOLITIONISTS on PBS but WATCH for HISTORICAL NONSENSE!

I am excited that PBS (No, I am not going soft – PBS should be denationalized and privatized!) is going to show a three part (Can I say mini-series?) event through their American Experience brand on The Abolitionists. I have tremendous admiration and respect for the abolitionists and consider William Lloyd Garrison a spiritual mentor […]

LET’S MAKE THIS CLEAR: I DO SUPPORT our OLYMPIC ATHLETES! I WANT THEM TO WIN! BUT…DO IT RIGHT!

I have written and posted some hard-hitting posts on the Olympics.  I like to use words and phrases to get people to read and think (My hero and role model for this is William Lloyd Garrison the abolitionist agitator and he had tough words to say about a number of issues) such as “sports imperialism” […]

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
