    A very special day.

    To use it for political gain not only takes away from the occasion but it is also completely moronic. The party of southern democrats that met its full demise in the 1960's is very different from the democratic party of today.

    The industrial revolution created a new breed of democrats. The democratic party of today owes its views to the northern urbanites of the industrial revolution, not to the democrats of the reconstruction era.

    I was wondering if jasendorf was going to respond to this but then I realized he is probably taking the day off.

    You know; a holiday.

    Well of course not, I mean hell, even John Kerry isn't the same John Kerry he was a 2 years ago. Liberals are putting on new masks every election year so they never have to admit to any past mistakes. You can't expect Democrats to fuss up to all the fuck ups Bill Clinton did, much less anything before....

    Good. If it wasn't for government schools, our children wouldn't be learning government propaganda as "history".

    The author conveniently leaves out the part where some northern states had laws on the books which flatly forbid blacks from settling there. Lincoln's native Illinois, for one. He also leaves out the part where crooked republican hacks bled the south dry, often times recruiting freed slaves to assist them. The bias against blacks was not entirely based upon their race.
