For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

Civil War thoughts by my friend David K ... thx David!

The War between the States was over the Right of Secession.

Lincoln the Tyrant won. Secession was nullified as a concept of Free States agreeing to a Commercial, Political, Military and quasi-Cultural Union. The Union became compulsory with the surrender at Appomattox.

Secession was over economics. Slavery was a substantial piece of the Southern Economy.

Neither side was  blameless and neither side was dignified.

One wanted to continue to enslave humans based on skin color. The other didn't care about Slavery except in so far as it could be used as a war measure to  be used against the South during the War.

It only became a moral imperative AFTER it was done.
