I seriously doubt the blacks back then really cared if the lieutenants were White as long as they weren't racist. I didn't care if my sargents were black as long as they weren't racist. I didn't like racists of any color. ---
Yet you manage to call the white officer core by the racist "lily-white" with no equivalent phrase for the black sergeants. Interesting.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Mike of NY, may I suggest you watch either part 2 (3?) I think I saw this series from the first, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, and Teddy called himself a Progressive, it is interesting that the Republicans should have actually a mule as their party symbol, because they are as stubborn as one. Oh, we still would be burning coal in our furnaces and trains, if the GOP had it's way. So, no, Teddy's Square Deal is just as much of an anathema to the Republican Plutocracy now, as it was then. This is why the present GOP, had better start paying attention to Samâs Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party.
You often manage to string words together, which when analyzed don't say too much. You should run for office.
Besides, (not speaking of TR's irrelevant Progressive Party, but of today's leftwingers who call themselves progressive) why should we be moved when a politician calls himself progressive. We shouldn't expect liberals to call themselves by their base philosophy, which is reactionary.
Always fascinating watching you bring up Catholicism and/or the GOP, and try to make some negative connection, regardless of context. But just so you won't go too far astray, more Catholics in the House of Rep. are Democrat than are GOP. Same for the Senate. You should be happy to have like-minded company.

"Progressive" and "sense" have something to do with each other, Jim? Nah. Their modern meanings are poles apart. Liberals imagine they are progressive, since in their perverted view they see destruction as progress. Therefore they lack sense. See how that works?

Most folks posting leave "fingerprints" of a sort. Style, spelling, anglicisms, idiosyncrasies, attitude, etc. Info isn't as personal as a name, but often point to a particular person, if you look closely.
pennned, you have to admit Jim is an interesting fellow. He supports anti-Christian government and the corrupt programs forced upon the people by it, then posts more irrelevance about a Christian Right movement, (whatever that is) being a disaster for the mission of Christians. I never realized defending corruption was a mission of Christians. You learn something new every day.
Ah Jim, why is it so difficult to stay the course? You know quite well you post all manner of irrelevancy. One must assume you do not like dealing much with actual subject matter, or you, like any good fisherman like to cast bait. The Pope? The price of milk? Ancient GWB drinking problems? Anti-vaccination? What next, the shortage of bathroom tissue? (That would be fitting, I suppose)
From the news: "Inflation-adjusted federal tax revenues hit a record $2,663,426,000,000 for the first 11 months of the fiscal year this August, but the federal government still ran a $589,185,000,000 deficit during that time, according to the latest Monthly Treasury Statement."
As we can see, it matters not how much revenue floods into Washington. It is never enough for the wasteful greedy. Yet Jim/Lincoln says we don't tax enough, claims it is because of the "greedy old party." Like I said before, liberals are bad at math, and don't remember history very well, either.

Look at this, its coming into your city in fact. So this is the blessing that we will leave our grandchildren by staying home from city meetings and leaving eugenics minded types to run our cities. Happening in your own city and you don't even know about it. ICLEI USA, proudly welcomes Lincoln Nebraska
From the link;
"As Nebraskaâs only ICLEI USA members, Omaha and Lincoln can pave the way for neighboring communities to leverage sustainability for a stronger economy and healthier environment."
âWe have no doubt that this new partnership will foster meaningful investments that will help the environment, save money, and create new economic opportunities for Nebraska residents.â
Jim Lincoln wrote: Hmm, let's see Mike when Bush Sr., was President he got rid of the Commies, a good thing, but did he get aid to the people? No. Since these people aren't Commies or even Muhammadans, and I don't think the Pope make much fuss about them, actually nothing will be done about them if the GOP gets in. Horrors for them if they had to borrow or actually raise taxes to do anything.
From the news: âClimate change is the most consequential, urgent sweeping collection of challenges we face,â Clinton declared at the event catering to environmental advocates. She put this assumed crisis above all else âŚ even higher than the current terrorist threat posed by the Islamic State. ...
No surprise here. She is a liberal Democrat, isn't she? When is reality ever allowed to invade the tiny spaces in their minds?

We understand we are on a journey to a better land; and we encourage one another as we all travel together, even though we are in different parts of the world. How could a peculiar people have such a bond if it were not for the cross of Christ, the love of God, and His wonderful grace? May He forever be praised! Let us exalt His holy and precious name... let us have the same mindset as that of the Apostle Paul, "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
