#1 Boy, that was a pretty big interference by government in Big Business, and by a Republican, yet!

The southern farmers must not of had a good lobby yet.

#2 How about a Julyteenth or Augusteenth for when the rest of us get emancipated and free. Or Mayteenth to commemorate when we get free from taxes?

#3 that was a pretty big interference by government in Big Business It was more of a dispute between one large chunk of the populace and another large chunk that the government couldn't settle by traditional means.

#5 thank God that now we have elected a black President, we are free of racism accusations and claims of reparations and mediocre "La Raza" judges nominated to the Supreme Court based on boxes checked and...

oh, nevermind

#6 that bit of snark aside - Slavery was an abomination, here or, more currently, in the ME. Thank God (and the noble sacrifice of a lotta lives) we have eliminated it here. Where oh where are the critics of the Arab states that seem to be front and center in modern-day slavery among our race-baiting hucksters? Jesse? Al? bought and paid for?

#7 Not certain which is the more evil. Slavery or the slaying of the unborn. Societal outcomes are probably much the same. Wat jy saai sai jy maai. (You shall reap what you sow).

#8 I'd say they are equally evil. Abortion (yeah, I'm a Catholic) kills unborn innocents. Slavery (eventually) kills for financial gain. Both slayers are evil in my calculus. I know that's hard to square, but I'm not out killing abortion doctors...tell me about allowing Arab slavery to continue without universal outrage and we'll talk hypocrisy on all sides
