re: Sessions Rescinds Obama Order on Private Prisons - Big Scrub TX
[quote]The President of the United States should not be picking and choosing which laws to enforce. If he opposes laws, he should attempt to get them repealed. THAT is how our system is supposed to work. You really shouldn't want the President picking and choosing. Sure. I would LOVE to see al...

re: Grandfather's writings - Does it still hold true, today? - Big Scrub TX
[quote]Again, what does skin color have to do with anything. Both my father and my grandfather taught me that skin color made no difference in the man, and that all people deserved to be treated with the same amount of respect. [/quote] Sounds great. Would be curious to see how that played out in re...

re: Grandfather's writings - Does it still hold true, today? - Big Scrub TX
[quote]Probably about as often as yours did. [/quote] :lol: True, although I don't make public appeals to the supposed wisdom of my grandpappy. I generally think people of that era (and my grandpappy is way before the 1950's) were screwed in the head in a meaningful way that is not captured in the T...

re: Grandfather's writings - Does it still hold true, today? - Big Scrub TX
[quote]What's skin color got to do with anything?[/quote] In 1950's-60's Oregon? Plenty. I find it striking that folk wisdom from the gold ol' days is nearly always bereft of any mentioning of the extreme moral failures of the adults in charge at that time. How many times did your grandpappy ever si...

re: Grandfather's writings - Does it still hold true, today? - Big Scrub TX
[quote]Grandfather's writings - Does it still hold true, today?[/quote] These writings seem incomplete. No mention at all of extending an olive branch of peace to your black neighbors, thus helping to alleviate the horrific racism they were experiencing at the time. Perhaps not surprising, as Oregon...
