I’m trying to limit (or eliminate) my political posts. It’s generally not worth it. But this article motivated me to post.
General Robert E. Lee on slavery:
“The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence. Their emancipation will sooner result from the mild & melting influence of Christianity, than the storms & tempests of fiery Controversy. This influence though slow, is sure,” he wrote in 1856.”
To not get vaccinated, to not wear a mask in certain public places, puts my already compromised health at risk…and my mom’s & my sisters’ & nephews’ & nieces’. So…thanks.
Will this stupidity never end?
Reading the testimony of the police who defended our Capitol on January 6th is making me physically ill – and angry with Trump, his followers/worshippers, and 90% of the Republican party.
