    @1215 [ ". . . at a certain level that sort of disgust is a luxury item, something people can only have because they haven't needed to do certain kinds of work." ] Ah, you mean men!...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Gads, if it wasn't so tragic it would be hilarious to see the same damned arguments and justifications trotted out over and over to say that slavery and racism in the US, and the War of the Rebellion weren't the...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    @908 That's inaccurate. Apartheid was written into national law by that Virginian in the White House, Woodrow Wilson. He codified the Jim Crow legal system throughout the nation. Which is why it takes a White House and federal passage of...

    #887 Because it is the Southern states and their adherents to slavery and racist systems that have kept it all going all the time here in the USA. What other nations do and did and have not done, and do...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    @867 You are repeating what I said, while evidently chiding my post for not saying it -- what in fact it did state, including, sheesh! the south manufactured nothing, though, ta-da! they managed to ramp up war material production by...

    @804 Still inaccurate, because the cotton could not get to Britain in near enough quantity to make that much difference, due to the South not having their own carrying fleets. Like for everything else the rich and others in those...

    @783 That statement that the British financed the CSA is, shall we say, extremely inaccurate. The CSA was essentially incapable of financing itself. Its greatest income was tariffs -- but the Union navy blockaded the ports effectively after 1961. It...

    @502 -- You aren't the only one po-ed at the anti-vaxxers. In the NY Post, from Alabama: [ "Fed-up doctor tells anti-vaxxers they’re on their own" Mobile, Ala., physician Dr. Jason Valentine posted a photo on Facebook in which he’s...

    Regarding the reception of Socialism, Marxism and Trotsky here in the USA, from the beginning, in the 1840's -50's, IMMEDIATELY in the slave states Socialists and Marx were identified as anti-white, pro-abolition, pro slave insurrection, and BLACK. The Victorian era...

    Which labor shortage is still due to halting immigration, since so many here will not work the conditions and shytty pay. But all around restaurants and hotels, etc., don't have that great pool of labor to draw on, which like...

    @204 [ "....No Civil rights or voting rights bills, however. Can't see Nixon ever doing that. The South stays Democratic. Cities burn brighter and hotter with ghetto riots. Nixon rolls out the tanks. White suburban America applauds. Race relations much...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    I fear to express this, even to myself, but I am feeling a sense of tipping point. Between Delta hitting the international market profits, holding back again the US economic recovery from the first wave, and children, even babies, here...

    @109 -- alas, like coffee blight this is a true thing. Predictions are that wine production in France alone this vintage year will be down at least 30% due to climate wreckage -- with the additional collateral low production to...

    Nevertheless, the fascists grabbing with glee turning the virus into a political bio-weapon has been extremely effective -- at least here in the USA of Freedumb -- for destabilization and suicidal domestic bioweaponry terrorists. So many ways this Freedumb bioweaponry...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    They bioweaponized as a political ruse the virus, and there They are, making money out it, willing to kill Their own kind. But as long as Their own kind kill Us too, it’s all good. That’s how this all began....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    What that whole region was referred to by Europe as the Levant, and the peoples who lived there, Levantines, starting around 1501. "Levantine" was still being used miscellaneously, not specifically, for any of the many varieties of language they spoke,...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    I've brought this up over and over for decades: the very idea of increasing dependence on nuclear is off reality charts, for several reasons such as cost, time and most of all climate change -- i.e. the cooling failures....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    O gosh is The Honorable Schoolboy good. But then so are so many other of the author's titles. It's difficult for me to choose which ones I think are best. Even the books where we may now view the background...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    It's long been enlightening to me, as an historian generally*, but particularly as one whose specialty is the history of the US and institutional slavery and the consequential institutional racism of all our systems from political to economic to criminal...

    You did say you know nothing because of reading / hearing nothing about Haiti for years. . . . Whereas I, on the other hand, have, and do, and know the history. Make of that what you will but the...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    Well, as we have so many friends in Haiti, and Haitian friends here, and its a big part of our professional work, both historical and musical of the USA, we have been paying attention all along and getting updates. Haiti...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    Essentially this happened with the Fugitive Slave Act, which meant anyone could point to anyone anywhere and declare that person an "escaped slave." This did more than anything to radicalize the average Northerner against the slaveocracy and slavery. And very...

    The 5-season television series, Lucifer, goes there. Divinities, angels and demons develop as characters, even grow souls, while on earth and interacting with human beings. "It is based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and...

    Food prices are going up quite a bit, across the board. However, with so many of our nation's primary agricultural regions* hit by drought and wildfires, when not being flooded out -- this happening now every growing season, in the...

    @ 782 [ "...And, in fact, was still lawful in England & the United Kingdom itself. "] Slavery was not lawful in Britain in 1783. See Somerset v Steward Ruling of 1772. There never had been a statute instituted in...

    Deliberate hegemony is the apt descriptor for, o, say, the Virginia Company of London, founded in 1606 specifically by royal charter to colonize the vast swathes of the New World of America. So many companies just like that, created by...

    Sykes-Picot was a French and Brit treaty made prior to the end time of WWI, designed for them to pick off the oil rich lands of the Middle East that were under control of the Turks. So it was part...
