"A school in one part of the country may be ahead of, behind or on altogether different subjects than a former school is." Please! Our schools cover so little material so slowly that only the dullest child wouldn't fit right in wherever he gets placed.

Lincoln’s Character

I've read both of these. My recommendations would be Charles Adams' =When in the Course of Human Events=; and Edgar Lee Masters' =Lincoln, The Man=. In fact, just read the reviews of the Adams and Masters books at Amazon.

Lincoln’s Character

To know Lincoln's character all you need to know about is the "Baltimore Plot." Lincoln got word from his security folks that the train he was riding on to Washington to be inaugurated might be attacked by Southern partisans when it was on its way to or arriving in Baltimore. Lincoln reasonably decided to switch trains in the middle of the night and also reasonably decided to wear a disguise until he got to Washington. Less reasonable though is that he decided that his wife and children should continue on on the train he feared would be attacked. In the event Mrs. Lincoln's car was boarded by rowdies in Baltimore and she was not pleased; which is why if you look up "Baltimore Plot" in the indices of Lincoln biographies, you are unlikely to even find an entry unless it is a biography of Mary Todd. PS Find out what "Honest Abe" did on their first scheduled wedding day.

Memo to poorly educated Americans: Lincoln trumped the Constitution, and it's been downhill ever since.

What if we have a debate about this stuff and amend the Constitution if that's what people want, rather than having the "enlightened" just go off on their own?
"Cops" are part of the Standing Army.
Let the Standing Army use these guns first.

No, Death Isn't 'Too Good' for Tsarnaev

I know it's just a little thing, but could we see some evidence first. When I see pictures of the camera that supposedly took a video of him placing one of the bombs, but not the video itself, I smell a rat. When I see CNN describing that supposed video, but showing a different video of Tsarnaev walking harmlessly behind the crowd, I smell a rat. When I see pictures of Michelle Obama in a hospital room visiting a "Person of Interest," who has since disappeared, I smell a rat. My guess: The "Person of Interest" has powerful friends, so they found some other guys who attended to same mosque as the "Person of Interest" that the powerful friends could frame.

The Key To It All/ Lincoln's Birthday, 2014

"as Abraham Lincoln delivered his second Inaugural Address as president of the United States on Saturday, March 4, 1865" Was that the one where he spoke about malice toward none and charity for all, as he was ordering his generals to burn widows and orphans out of their farms? ML/NJ (Honest Yankee)
