Abraham Lincoln on Slavery

What follows... are words that came from the man himself.  "Honest" Abraham Lincoln... in Peoria, Illinois, October 16, 1854


Before proceeding let me say that I think I have no prejudice against the Southern people. They are just what we would be in their situation. If slavery did not now exist among them, they would not introduce it. If it did exist among us, we should not instantly give it up. This I believe of the masses, North and South. Doubtless there are individuals on both sides who would not hold slaves under any circumstances, and others who would gladly introduce slavery anew if it were not in existence. We know that some Southern men do free their slaves, go North, and become tip-top Abolitionists, while some Northern ones go South and become most cruel slavemasters.

When Southern people tell us they are no more responsible for the origin of slavery than we are, I acknowledge the fact. When it is said that the institution exists, and it is very difficult to get rid of it in any satisfactory way, I can understand and appreciate the saying. I surely will not blame them for not doing what I should not know how to do myself. If all earthly power were given me, I should not know what to do as to the existing institution.

My first impulse would be to free all the slaves, and send them to Liberia, to their own native land. But a moment's reflection would convince me that whatever of high hope—as I think there is—there may be in this in the long run, its sudden execution is impossible. If they were all landed there in a day, they would all perish in the next ten days; and there are not surplus shipping and surplus money enough to carry them there in many times ten days.

What then? Free them all, and keep them among us as underlings? Is it quite certain this betters their condition? I think I would not hold one of them in slavery at any rate, yet the point is not clear enough for me to denounce people upon. What next? Free them, and make them politically and socially our equals? My own feelings will not admit of this, and if mine would, we well know that those of the great mass of whites will not. Whether this feeling accords with justice and sound judgment is not the sole question, if indeed it is any part of it. A universal feeling, whether well or ill founded, cannot be safely disregarded. We cannot make them equals.

It does seem to me that systems of gradual emancipation might be adopted, but for their tardiness in this I will not undertake to judge our brethren of the South.


As for my own words... I will only add these:

Deo Vindice.

Roll Tide.

Country Song


It ain't every day that someone comes along and says exactly what you want to say about modern music... exactly the way you want to say it.    If you ever asked yourself where real country music went...  or where the outlaws are...   well... their right here.  They never left.    30 years from now the Grand Ol' Opry will probably be trying to cash on in on them too.

and I still have no idea what the fuck a honkeytonk badonkadonk is either.

CG-36500 and The Pendleton

There's a movie out in theaters...   The Finest Hours.   I hope you'll get the chance to go see it.   We often see "based on a true story" or "inspired by true events" tacked on to the begining of various hollywood clunkers...  where reality is stretched out and doesn't live up to silliness on the screen.

In this case...  it is likely hollywood that will be outmatched by the stupifying events that actually took place.

18 February 1952....  two T2 tankers split in half in 40-60 foot seas off the coast of Cape Cod.  The coast guard rescued 70 men that day. 

The photo to the left is of the little boat that went out in those seas, blinding snow, and near hurricane winds to rescue the men of the TS Pendleton.  The recue boat was capsized several times... but it is a stubborn little bastard and kept righting itself.  The motor spent so much time upside down it would lose prime... and a crew member would have to climb back in there and restart it.   Think about that the next time you have engine trouble.  Try starting an unprimed diesel motor while being tossed around by 60 foot waves.   

They were told to take this little boat out into the those seas... and find a 500 foot tanker that had broken in half... and save the men on it.   With nothing but a compass.  Think about that.  The Sea had broken 2 500 foot long tankers in half.   And they were told to take this little wood boat out there and try to save those sailors.   Honestly I have to believe the commanders gave the orders in jest assuming the men of the CG-36500 would have sense enough to get lost out there and find their way back safe in a few hours. 

If you were to ask me what my favorite branch of the military is...  I'd think of the Air Force and the A-10.. and the F-18s...  and all the cool toys...  and I'd think of the Navy and the even cooler toys... and the Marines.   And I would think of the Army...  the traditions of West Point... the history and accomplishment and valor...  

Then I'd answer you;

The Coast Guard.

The 25 Demands of the Donald Trump Campaign

1. Donald Trump demands the uniting of all Americans within one Greater America, on the basis of the right to self-determination of nations to Make American Great Again.

2. Donald Trump demands equal rights for the American people (Folk) with respect to other nations, and the annulment of the North American Free Trade Agreement

3. Donald Trump demands land and oil development to feed our People and to provide for our energy needs. 

4. Only Nationals can be Citizens of the State.  Only persons of American blood can be Nationals, regardless of religious affiliation.  No Muslim can therefore be a American National. 

5. Any person who is not a Citizen will be able to live in America only as a guest and must be subject to legislation for foreigners.

 6. Only a Citizen is entitled to decide the leadership and laws of the State.  Donald Trump therefore demands that only Citizens may hold public office, regardless of whether it is a national, state, or local office, and proof of citizenship must be required to vote.

7. Donald Trump demands that the State make it its duty to provide opportunities of employment first of all for its own Citizens.  If there are not enough jobs all Americans, all foreigners must be deported.

8. Any further immigration of non-Americans is to be prevented.  We demand that all non-Americans who entered America after August 2, 1986, be forced to leave America without delay.
 
9. All American Citizens must have equal rights and duties. 

10. It must be the first duty of every Citizen to carry out intellectual or physical work.  Individual activity must not be harmful to the public interest and must be pursued within the framework of the community and for the general good. 

  Donald Trump therefore demands: 

11. The abolition of all income obtained without labor or effort.    Breaking the Servitude of Interest

12. In view of the tremendous sacrifices in property and blood demanded of the Nation by every war, personal gain from the war must be termed a crime against the Nation.  Donald Trump therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits, to ensure the proper treatment of our brave veterans

13. Donald Trump demands the nationalization of all enterprises (already) converted into corporations (trusts).   Foreign hands must not be allowed to control American wealth.

14. Donald Trump demands that the publicly traded stocks must pay dividends to their employees. 

15. Donald Trump demands the large-scale reform of Social Security.

16. Donald Trump demands the creation of a healthy middle class and its immediate break­up of the great conglomerates and their being leased at low cost to small firms and the utmost consideration for small firms in contracts with the Federal Government, state or any municipality.

17. Donald Trump demands strong eminent domain laws and tight regulation on the subprime real estate market and unethical practices.

18. Donald Trump demands ruthless battle against those who harm the common good by their SJW activities.  Also persons committing base crimes against the People, thieves, wall street profiteers, etc., are to be punished by death without regard of religion or race. 

19. Donald Trump demand the replacement of Liberal Law, which serves a materialistic World Order, by American Law. 

20. In order to make higher education—and thereby entry into leading positions— available to every able and industrious American, the State must provide a thorough restructuring of our entire public educational system.  The courses of study at all educational institutions are to be adjusted to meet the requirements of practical life.  Understanding of the concept of the patriotism must be achieved through the schools (teaching of civics) at the earliest age at which it can be grasped.  Donald Trump demands the education at the public expense of specially gifted children of poor parents, without regard to the latter’s position or occupation.   

21. The State must raise the level of national health by means of mother-and-child care, protecting children, achievement of physical fitness through legislation for compulsory gymnastics and sports, and maximum support for all organizations providing physical training for young people. 

22. Donald Trump demands the abolition of private contractors and the expansion of a strong national army. 

23. Donald Trump demands laws to fight against deliberate political lies and their dissemination by the press.  In order to make it possible to create an American press, he demands: 

a) All editors and reporters of Networks must be American Citizens by blood; 

b) Non-American networks require express permission from the State for their broadcast. 

c) Any financial participation in a American Network or influence on such a network is to be forbidden by law to non-Americans and the penalty for any breech of this law will be the closing of the network in question, as well as the immediate deportations of the non-Americans involved.  Networks which violate the public interest are to be banned.  He demands laws against SJW trends in art and literature which have a destructive effect on our national life, and the suppression of performances that offend against the above requirements. 

24. Donald Trump demands freedom for all religious denominations, provided that they do not endanger the existence of the State or offend the concepts of decency and morality of the American people.  Donald Trump stands for positive Christianity, without associating himself with any particular denomination.  He fights against the Islamic spirit within and around us, and is convinced that a permanent revival of our Nation can be achieved only asking not how America can make you great, but what you can do to make America Great Again.

25. To carry out all the above we demand:  the creation of a strong executive branch.  Unquestioned authority by the US Congress over the entire nation and over its organizations in general.  The establishment of trade and professional organizations to enforce the basic laws in the individual states.

 Donald Trump promises to take an uncompromising stand, at the cost of his own sacred fortune if need be, on the enforcement of the above points.

The Minas Tirith Times

The Following is an Op-ed written to the editors of the Minas Tirith Times by Saruman, Head of the White Council :

One of the major challenges that we face today, on a global scale, is how to protect people who have been forced, by armed conflict, human right abuse or other forms of persecution to flee their homelands.

  Overwhelmingly, refugees do not willingly leave their homes and families.   They do not come to Gondor seeking financial advancement.   Most do not even leave with a final destination in mind.

   They leave because of the fear of what will happen to them if they don’t. 

  They leave because of the persecution and abuse that they have faced on a daily basis. 

  As a country, Gondor shares responsibility with the rest of the international community, for protecting these refugees by offering them a place where they can be safe. 

  When we accept refugees into our community, we are offering them the chance to live a secure and stable life free from fear.     

Freedom From Fear.    Why?    Because, sadly, fear is a very powerful emotion.    It drives people to do things they would have never considered before. 

  It drives them to undertake the most perilous journey imaginable that of a person fleeing across and international border and into the unknown.

  These journeys are often met with hunger, disease, more violence and even death. 
  But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

These people are being given another chance – Free From Fear – to build a new life, to live in safety as warmly welcome and dignified members of the Gondornian community. 
   
They come as ordinary, humble people.  They are teachers, doctors, labourers and carers.    They are mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.    They are people.    They are people who grace us with their presence    . . . who enhance our diversity     . . . who teach us their customs     . . . and enrich our shared community.    Gondor has a proud tradition of accepting migrants and refugees and are the better for it.    Refugees and refugee communities are valued members of any society.

 It is important to remember that difficulties refugees face with they first arrive.  Having fled for their lives, often leaving family and loved ones behind, refugees face a new set of challenges.  

  How do I communicate in a foreign language?   How do I find somewhere to live?    Will I be able to support my family?    And perhaps one of the most difficult questions …    How do I recover from the trauma I experienced?    These are not easy questions to answer but rest assured we must help in any way we can. 

  As a community, we must work together to ensure that these people are made to feel welcome and given the assistance they need. As we look towards the future, the resettlement focus will continue to be on refugees from the three key regions of Gondor, Rohan and yes, even Rivendell, with equal proportions of arrivals from each.  

It is important that we silence the voices of our own fear.  That we not give in to the xenophobia and hate.  We must focus on the suffering and plight of these refugees who need us so desperately.  Let us not talk of walls.  Let us ask what we can do to help ease the pain. 

Their homeland, Mordor is ruled by a tyrant.  A dictator who is torturing and conscripting them.  He has poisoned their lands and ruined their environment to the point that it is uninhabitable.  The air itself is poison, from the chemical weapons he's used on his own people.   His Nazgul torment them from the air.  And the Eagles attacking them only make the suffering below even worse... as their violence spills down.  We must create a no fly zone to keep these refugees safe and Free from Fear.  If that means shooting down the Eagles as well as the Nazgul... so be it.

This is the Third Age.  3018.  It is time to move past the out-dated racism and xenophobia of the past. 

On behalf of the White Council and all Istari, I beg you, and I thank you.



Your humble servant,

Saruman
