Remember now, "our greatest President", Lincoln, shut down over 300 newspapers and magazines for their writing of editorials that were anti-war or anti-Lincoln. Some had their presses destroyed by Union soldiers. Oh, did I mention these were all NORTHERN newspapers? So, if Honest Abe did it, and you here all love Abe, be careful how you condemn Barry.

And the War Came

It seems that if Abe truly did not want war, why not meet with the Peace Committee that was in Washington. But no. Lincoln feared by meeting with seceded state leaders, it would give some sort of credence to there being a CSA. To quote Lincoln 4 years into the war as to his mindset in it's beginning is dishonest at best. Lincoln had no problem with war. He just knew this war was going to be short and sweet. So, meet the Peace Committee or, as he did, reinforce Sumter and entice a fight. War's on. Abe demands states send him 75,000 troops for 90 days. The Union already has 18,000 men. 93,000 men for 90 days. Abe ends up calling up over TWO MILLION men over a course of FOUR YEARS. Maybe he should have met with those leaders..

Amen Brother. Amen.
Gayest? Nope. That goes to "our greatest President", Lincoln. He had a lover by the name of Joshua Speed that he slept with and wrote love letters to. Defenders say it was common back then for men to share a bed. True. But write "flowerly" letters? Not so much. And then there was the Army officer bodyguard, Derickson.And a Mr.Billy Greene who wrote of "Honest Abe", as he too shared many a night in the same bed, "His thighs were as perfect as a human being could be". Quite a compliment. Ever wonder why the Gay Republicans are called "Log Cabin"? Not that there is anything wrong with that.
