    Lincoln Statue Defaced...

    "A statue of young Abraham Lincoln has been defaced with red paint and words referencing troubles with Native American tribes."
    Abraham Lincoln statue vandalized in Chicago | Fox News
    When I grew up, in Memphis-1940s, every classroom had a photo of Abraham Lincoln. I think it was required as part of reconstruction. Didn't work. We were far more concerned with the estimated 750,000 deaths in the War Between the States. The 38 Dakota Indians weren't a drop in the bucket. And, the dying in the South didn't end with the war.


    "But in 2011, demographic historian Dr. J. David Hacker published “A Census-Based Count of Civil War Dead,” in the scholarly quarterly, Civil War History, reporting that his in-depth study of recently digitized census data concluded that a more accurate estimate of Civil War deaths is about 750,000, with a range from 650.000 to as many as 850,000 dead."

    I am all for Lincoln's statues being defaced or removed. If one believes that the concept of "war criminal" is valid he fits every definition.

    An Honest Libertarian Discussion Thread

    "Anarchy is not a solution, not a system, not a club, not a church, not even an ideology. It is the natural order of human life: Voluntary, consensual relationships among humans without the greatest problem in all of history- the hallucination, the dystopian ideal that some humans should have the right to violently control their fellow man."

    "Once you discover anarchism you cannot unsee the state for what it is: a fined tuned system of slavery.​"

    a technologically deprived group met a group with better technology and were absorbed/defeated.


    its called human nature/history and is how humans have progressed since they climbed out of trees.

    we used to do that in oregon,,,sometimes you never found them.....the trains were so long and slow you could use them to ride from town to town...


    we would tape .22 shells in a row on the tracks and the train would fire them like a gatling gun...
