Frankly, I think he places too much trust in those white married women. Who knows what they are up to.


I saw a great article about how Asians went for Romney in great numbers even though Asians on the average are high earners and are socially conservative. It seemed to be a puzzle why they wouldn't go for Romney.

I was thinking -- Get a clue.

It's like Republicans being a rejected girlfriend thinking, "But I was PERFECT for you!"
The link you post did not work So I am also a slut even though I marry the same guy for almost 25 years (come May next year is our silver anniversary) and never stray just because I vote for Obama and I am not white

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt2)

The best introduction is a marvelous documentary by Ken Burns for PBS. The Civil War.

He uses a motion picture camera to bring old photographs and paintings to life and adds music of the period to accompany and also sounds. Narrators read letters or memoirs from participants. Oliver Wendell Holms a great judge for the U.S. who went to war as a young man wrote, "Our lives were touched by fire."

This clip gives an idea. It's about slavery conditions.




This brings me to tears every time I hear it, and I have heard it many times.



Best overview of the Civil War is by Shelby Foote.

Lee, the writer of that "article" has taken his website private and evidently the google cache has expired. Here part of it is excerpted.

A little bit of rain this afternoon and I was driving home around 4pm. I was heading east and straight ahead was the McDowell Mountains. There was rainbow and the setting sun made the mountains kind of white, like they were covered with snow. So pretty

Yes. I know. Sadly I'm not so smart.

I knew it was Obama. I didn't realize I wrote Romney until I read it quotes in your post.

Oh Raquel I remember that Speilberg is releasing a movie called Lincoln. Knowing him there will be strange inaccuracies, but that would be less like homework for you.

Thanks, star! I will watch after Nole.

I have a new celebrity crush, but he is 2 years younger. It's becoming a pattern.
