Happy Bartolomé Day


Recommended Posts

I appreciate the thing on C. Columbus. To give the dictator, Lincoln, ("Gorilla in the white house") a pass is wrong. He suspended habeas corpus, instituted martial law, jailed reporters, members of Congress, Judges and other dissidents who did not support his war on his own people. The War of Northern Aggression was no joke. The Emancipation Proclamation specifically exempted slave states that had not seceded. Ok, Done.

Took me to go to Department of Defense schools from 5th to 9th grade to get that info.

He never brought up Lincoln, though. This coming from someone who agrees that Lincoln's good aspects are exaggerated....he did some pretty questionable stuff. Still one of the better presidents we've had, did a lot more good than bad. Definitely doesn't deserve to be mentioned among guys like FDR and Jefferson though.

You could say those guys were...should I touch this? Elite. laugh.png

But yeah, the US has been breaking its own rules for ages. Freedom of speech is a big one. We had our own prison camps in WW2 with hundreds of thousands of Japanese soldiers. Public education likes to paint things one way but every government has its cracks. In general, everything about our government is owned nowadays, and the vast majority of people are suffering for it. We need to get back to the days where we had a strong middle class. But that's a topic for another time, heh.

History is history....written by the victors. Propaganda is what helped make us so unaware. http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Cloward-Piven_strategy

This is only one. The deception is visceral.

We have been lied to.

Ok...lol. I only think about semantics when on the job. Not here. Here I say things like could care less, iono, aiight, lol, and so on. When on the job I am a bit more concise on my word usage. Programming overall is programming and start with repetition. Many don't know much about Columbus the man. The story we are taught in history about him is actually based on a fictional novel. Same as many other figures.

History isn't only written by the victor, but gets lost in wars of semantics. Splitting hairs is how we get to this point. Debating logical fallacies, trying hard to prove a point, or rather prove a man to not have used proper grammar and the like. Those things have helped.

I cxan easily find a link for what you said. I hoped you would do so, but since you are more interested in making a statement...that's on you...

With wisdom we have understanding. There is a time and place for everything, just because I know something doesn't mean others do not, not everyone is in the mood to show what they know all the time. ;)
