"For years, conservatives have puzzled over President Barack Obama's continued personal popularity in the face of his dramatically uninspiring performance as commander-in-chief." Perhaps, because Bush's inspired performance as commander in chief got the US involved in two wars that he didn't know how to finish.

The Morrill Tariff was adopted on March 2, 1861. By then 7 states had already seceded. It was passed in the Senate by 25 votes to 14. If those seven states had remained in the Union, it would have been rejected. It can't be a cause of the war.

The cost of robots is steadily falling. To keep pace, wages for those who do jobs that can be replaced must fall to keep pace.

And when Rome fell, it was Christian.
Is this the same Bible where the Jews took the responsibility for the crucifixtion on themselves and their children? If the Jews are the apple of God's eye, why can't they be saved unless they convert to Christianity?
