    HCR: Letters from an American III

    August 13, 2022 (Saturday) Since it seems clear we will be deciding whether we want to preserve the Social Security Act by our choice of leaders in the next few elections, I thought it not unreasonable to reprint this piece from last year about why people in the 1930s thought the measure was...

    HCR: Letters from an American III

    August 11, 2022 (Thursday) Since Monday’s search of former president Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property by the FBI, Trump, Trump supporters, and right-wing media have all been accusing the government of executing a political vendetta and speculating that FBI agents might have planted evidence on the...

    Trump Deeds and Misdeeds V 4.0

    I don't understand why Trump has not gotten rid of the documents by now if they are incriminating. It would be easy enough to shred them, put them in a trash bag, and put them in a dumpster, or just burn them. What is in these documents that made him want to hold on to them even if they...

    HCR: Letters from an American III

    August 8, 2022 (Monday) It’s been quite a day. It began with Axios sharing photos of what purported to be White House toilets with torn up paper in them. The notes on that paper appear to have former president Trump’s distinctive handwriting on them. Axios got them from New York Times reporter...

    August 7, 2022 (Sunday) “The yeas are 50; the nays are 50. The Senate being equally divided, the vice president votes in the affirmative, and the bill, as amended, is passed.” So spoke Vice President Kamala Harris this afternoon as, after an all-night session, her vote passed the Inflation...

    Price of gas

    I'm the same way. My father could fix anything, from cars, to the AC. We went for two years in the 60's without AC. Dad eventually fixed it. As a result, I'm reasonably handy. We didn't have chickens, but did have cattle and hogs. My grandmother had a smokehouse behind her home where she cured...

    HCR: Letters from an American III

    I'm guessing Heather is giving her readers credit for being aware of all the issues you raise. I feel certain that Heather lays the majority of issue of slavery at the feet of wealthy southern land owners, as opposed to at the feet of Southerners. I'm also certain that as a historian, she...

    Vin Scully, Long Time Voice of the Dodgers, Has Passed Away

    I liked Vin Scully fine. May he rest in peace. He seemed like a very likable gentleman. There are a lot of announcers I have liked better. It may have been because I was less exposed to Scully, but he always struck my as very vanilla where I prefer a more colorful announcer. Super nice guy...

    August 5, 2022 (Friday) On this day in 1861, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law a new tax law to help fund the United States government during the Civil War. Far more than writing a traditional revenue act to address the catastrophic war that had demonstrated its horrors just two weeks...

    HCR: Letters from an American III

    August 4, 2022 (Thursday) Congress established the Department of Justice in 1870, overseen by the attorney general, to protect civil rights in the southern states after state legislators and state law enforcement officers refused to treat their Black neighbors as equals. If the states would...

    2022 elections thread

    If the R's do as you say, IMO they will be cutting their own throat for 2024. Even if they do, Biden would veto the bill.

    August 3, 2022 (Wednesday) I have spent the day rereading the Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the news of the day has heightened its relevance. During the Trump administration, after an extensive investigation, the Republican-dominated...
