Re: When Robert E. Lee Met John Brown And Saved The Union

Regarding taxes as slavery, and going back to a point I mentioned before: You have the option of leaving. There's no wall around the US keeping people in. Yes, taxation ≠ slavery, but DC does, clearly, now view its citizens as chattel. There is not a wall, but there is a significant tax barrier, (4...

Re: This is your culture setting itself on fire.

That has to be fake. Either the "championship" or the footage or something.

Should they intend to go into law, as so many debate types do, and that footage is correct, they will be in for quite a shock the first time they try something like that in an older black woman's class.
