Abraham Lincoln: An American Monster (Article) - 12/14/2008 1:15:14 PM|
I've heard a little bit about how Lincoln is definitely not all he's cracked up to be. I wonder if politics has more dark secrets now or back then. Great article and I'll spread the word. thx!
Abraham Lincoln: An American Monster (Article) - 4/24/2007 1:53:30 PM
Do you really believe that People would be free without a fight? Wasn't there a Democracy in place then? If so can your really blame one man? This nation has faults, but both of us can clearly see we both share the right to vote and free speech. That war was just a catalyst that eventually brought an avalanche of freedoms for all of us. What we see today is only caused by our own indifference to moral rights of individuals and nations. God still has the last say.
What would we do without illegal immigration? (Article) - 4/8/2006 11:40:07 PM
I think we would do very well. Everyone seems to be repeating that the illegals are taking jobs that Americans don't want. Then why are there so many elderly greeters at Walmart. There are millions of elderly that would welcome work anywhere to suppliment their income, and they would sweep a floor to do so. We have been brainwashed that these people are essential to our economy. Then why are there 11m illegals in this country and they send $16 billion back to Mexico? How does that help the economy when they tax our welfare and health systems, crime in their own areas is shameful, and they drive around with a picture of Jesus on their dashboard. This argument has never been about who does what, and how much work. It is about breaking the LAW. It is about being ILLEGAL. And no one, can seem to stay on point. They bring in all this other misinformation, and they don't have the numbers to back up their illusion of truth.
Secession of the Blue States (Article) - 6/30/2005 6:57:31 AM
I've been enjoying your articles. On many issues, we agree but from different angles. This, however, I cannot read because the very first line is patently false. The Washington Times is not a "bastion of liberal big government." It is run by the Moonies, a cult whose leader is buddies with George H.W. Bush. This paper was used all through the Reagan Years as a tool of the right wing much the way FOX News functions today. I have been surprised in recent years how the Times has, in fact, brought to light some of the criminal injustices this new-and-improved Bush Administration have committed. That's not liberal, however. That's called REPORTING. Furthermore, how can you even say "liberal big government" anymore? This administration has spent more on nothing than any I can remember. (And that doesn't include the TRILLIONS they've "lost" and/or stolen.) When are people like you and me gonna wake up and see that these so-called neo-cons are actually neo-facists and drive them out of office? Then we can get back to debating issues as "liberals" and "conservatives." All I've seen since 2000 is fascists, republicans and Ralph Nader. The democrats no longer exist. Ralph Nader is irrelevant. What are you even bitching about.
America No More: The Death of the Age of Freedom (Article) - 6/24/2005 8:17:12 AM
This makes sense to me for those masses of voters and cultural decision-makers who went Sexual Revolution in the mid-twentieth century. For those girls who did not enjoy having the personal possession of their own purity confiscated for public use, it is only fair that their rapists should be so treated in return. "... all started in the 50’s when they found that the government should be able to confiscate land for “the public good” in addition to the already extant reason, “for public use”."

Maybe we should change the name and drawing of the American Eagle
to that of Ben Franklin's idea of the Turkey, or maybe the Chicken,
since it represents the backbone americans have collectively.
They didn't complain about a National ID card system that passed 300-0 on a rider thru the Senate so why should they care about this, as
long as their 'I'm all right Jack' attitude prevails?

It gets uglier every day. And people are still saying, "I didn't hear that," and walking on.
The United States Requires Passports for Re-Entry (Article) - 4/25/2005 8:11:57 PM
Not all is terrible in Texas: Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) at www.ronpaul.org and Presidential candidate Michael Badnarik at www.ConstitutionPreservation.org are working to glean the Benedict Arnolds from the Republican Party who have betrayed us to British Empire. They are Texicans who, allied with other Americans such as www.Bureaucrash.com and www.DownsizeDC.org, are reclaiming the American Dream of Liberty and Freedom from the Tories who took America away from us during WW II. To learn more about the British fifth column during WW II, see Nicolas John Cull's "Selling War: The British Propaganda Campaign Against American 'Neutrality' in World War II" (1995) available at amazon.com .
Secession of the Blue States (Article) - 11/13/2004 1:01:10 PM
Some good points made here, David, but secession is not an option, so let's figure out a way to get along together. The way I see it, the increasing world population is raising pressure all over the globe, including in the U.S. In such a situation, backbones of jello are bound to bend outward at the weakest spots. We need to strengthen our tolerance of each other to the point that what you do is fine if it doesn't harm me in some way. Meanwhile, successful population reduction programs are about the only thing that will make inroads in a real reduction of overall tension that promises to get worse as we all compete for increasingly scarce resources (oil, etc.). Instead of blue/red state competition, we should all be trying to get global population under control before all states turn purple from lack of air and space.
Secession of the Blue States (Article) - 11/11/2004 7:12:30 PM
Well you know I said that if anyone wanted to leave this country regardless of who won there is an airport close by. I don't feel that I should have to go around explaining to anyone why I voted like I did. No more than they have to explain to me. What I hate is the people in other countries admonishing us for voting in our election. I love the south and people from the north and I will say it again why argue with someone dumber than yourself. Abe Lincoln said it best.
The Good As New Bible (Article) - 11/10/2004 7:31:44 PM
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I didn't know there was a new version of bible out that was as bad as the aquarian bible that surfaced a few years ago. I hope you're right about our country staying strong in its moral center.
Rights? Guest Workers?? (Article) - 6/25/2004 9:37:18 PM
Too bad there isn't a law about how much American currency can be sent out of the country per month... it'd be easy to track illegal immigrants that way. (I'm really irritated that ATM screens are in Spanish... it's not bad enough to sneak in here, everything has to be translated for them too! Maybe if important documents were only in English, more people would speak it.)
Abolish All Immigration Laws (Article) - 6/25/2004 9:28:23 PM
I was all set to attack you until I started reading your article... nice hook! :)
My dialysis unit had an experience with an illegal immigrant-- she got free dialysis for 2 years and might have gotten it indefinitely, but then she decided to apply for disability money too! She used a fake SS number, and that's how she was discovered. INS was called... thank God some people in Massachusetts still believe in laws!

Top 10 Reasons to Abandon the UN (Article) - 6/11/2004 12:38:55 AM
The United Nations is nothing more than a failed social experiment, completely irrelevant to any nation able to govern itself. A few years back, the Russians invited the UN to relocate its general headquarters to St Petersburg. Too bad they didn’t accept. Your points are right on target.
Top 10 Reasons to Abandon the UN (Article) - 3/17/2004 2:00:39 PM
what then would the world be like without the united nations to take care of stuborn regimes and threats to world peace.Can there ever be
a replacement?Can there be perfection in any organisaton whatsoever?
Is it not better than not having anything at all? Dont you see anarchy
and the rule of all against all and the survival of the fittest in such a horrifying situation.
Concerning Man and Government (Article) - 1/23/2004 11:59:43 AM
Excellent review of the history of individual liberty vs. government growth. Sadly, I tend to agree that the global trend is creeping toward more individual liberty while the U.S. model is moving in the other direction at an accelerated pace. (Could population explosion dynamics have anything to do with this?) Perhaps there will be a Second Enlightenment when the opressiveness of government becomes odious to enough people. My pessimism about this happening comes to the fore when I review the dismally small number of times in history this has happened.
Abraham Lincoln: An American Monster (Article) - 1/21/2004 7:29:39 AM
Good to see you exercise your right of free speech, Mr. Ray, only - what's an 'Ameican'?'
Abraham Lincoln: An American Monster (Article) - 1/21/2004 3:48:03 AM
A real eye opener, David. But, war is ugly and brings out the very worst in people. We cannot change the past, we can only, hopefully, learn from it. I know a tired cliche', but one that still pertains.
I hope with this article, you've been able to vent some of your anger.
Rights? Guest Workers?? (Article) - 1/8/2004 7:22:25 PM
David, I couldn't agree with your article more. Political actions like this are making a shamble of our rule of law. We must wake up before it's too late.
Rights? Guest Workers?? (Article) - 1/7/2004 3:51:03 PM
David, this is a very compelling article, bringing out the real issues that are hidden by innuendos. Thank you for sharing this...
Confessions Of A Criminal (Article) - 1/6/2004 9:35:49 AM
I think this is very well written, although I don't agree with your point of view. By writing this, you will encourage me to seek the real statistics however, so your article is successful in stimulating thought on the topic. Good job!
The Liberal Left's Socialist War on the Second Amendment (Article) - 1/5/2004 9:49:12 AM

Let's Play the Oil Game! (Article) - 1/5/2004 9:43:02 AM
well written with a good voice and informative, but you lost me at the beginning
There is a reason the absent minded liberal far-left carries signs that say "war for oil". Too bad they don't have enough grey matter to really figure it out.
i admire you for speaking your voice unabashedly...that's what i do
but i meant to say on the other article...
"hello...my name is jessica....and i am a recovering..conservative"
sometimes the death of a conservative means the birth of a decent human being
i grew up in a political family that worked/works for bush/reagan, blah blah ugh
and although i may be liberal i have the intelligence you say we lack
also, i think you may enjoy my senate slumber party article

This poem is really full of depth. Enjoyed it.
City (Poetry) - 3/24/2004 7:26:16 AM
this remind me of one of those films set in the future when law and order has disappeared and anarchy rules, but it is how city life can be, the bits we try and ignore.....its dark and moody and I love it.
