A Very Simple Question for the Cult of Lincoln

If Mr. Lincoln was so opposed to slavery, then why did he not abolish it in those places where he had the power to; the northern and border states of Kentucky, Missouri, Delaware, and Maryland, numerous counties in West Virginia, and the northern occupied parts of the Confederacy (New Orleans and other sections of Louisiana)?......That, and why did the dude wait until it looked like the South was winning before he put forth this wonderful Emancipation Proclamation (which, again, only made slavery illegal in the Confederacy)? Da' ya' think that maybe it was because he was trying to stir up a little bit of trouble down there? That's my theory.

Ya think?

But for some boxes continue to be confining.

I've often pondered why so many cling to the belief the CW was primarily about slavery.

I think I know the reason....

We put these people on Mt. Rushmore and we're not supposed to criticize 'em, I guess.

Groupthink, a dangerous thing.

Very nationalistic.

Reminds me of, oh, nevermind.

Wow,look at Lester leaving his brain droppings all over the place today.....and here he admits that he "pondered." Look at the big brain on Lester....while most people wonder about something...not Lester,he will ponder the subject and not only that....he will often ponder......yikes,this guy is special.

And while he is pondering he is wearing a polyester shirt,making his ponder even more difficult.

Groupthink: good to see that even
Libertarians disagree about that era.

Who the Fuck is Lester? One of your kids ShackelTurd.

Perhaps you should ponder just who Lester is?

"ShackelTurd" Is that the best you have Lester? Maybe you should ponder that.

"I've often pondered." Holy Christ...the guy actually said..."I've often pondered."

Lester,did you "ponder" while smoking a pipe,wearing an ascot and drinking a sherry?

Lester,do many people really "ponder" these days or is it a lost art?

"I've often pondered"....did he really say that?

Rational Nation USA said...

It is obviously a lost art to you judging by your comments. One I'm quite certain you never acquired to begin with.

No, it's not the best I have. Just keeping it respectful.

Now, go Skake-a-Turd Mr. ShackleTurd.
