  1. Link I'm not even in favor of the decision to declare a national emergency but can we please stop acting like it's the end of the focking world?

    I don't remember off the top of my head where I read that but this is an interesting read on the subject of white slavery. I might have gotten it from there. It's been so long I don't remember. Ooops, linky no worky... hang on. Fixored

    National Emergency

    Trump didn't take any power away from Congress. That's just the talking point they've been given. Congress abrogated their responsibility to provide for border security (again). This POTUS stepped in to try to fulfill his responsibility to make sure our immigration laws are enforced. Trump said he fully expects this to be challenged in court. So it basically plays out like this... The legislative branch failed to secure the border so the executive branch took measures to do so and the judicial branch will determine the legality of the measures taken. You know, how the system was designed to function. That said, it should never have come to this. It's the sad state of national politics that brought us to this point. Oddly enough, that's also exactly why Trump was elected. ETA: BTW, this isn't even an additional expenditure. He's reallocating a few billion from the already approved 1.5 trillion dollar DOD budget.

    National Emergency

    I'm not changing any tune. I wasn't on here everyday about Obama. I never started a single Obama! thread to my recollection. I was just pointing out how ridiculous your little rant was. Those on the left who are complaining about this were silent when it was one of their guys who did it and after complaining about it this time will about it the next time one of their guys does it. They're already laying the ground work for the "you started it" defense.

    You fockers that are b!tching about this were fine with it when a dem did it in the past. Fock, you didn't say sh!t when Obama was doing it for years but now this is a problem? Dumb sh!ts.

    National Emergency

    Some people don't seem to understand that border security falls under the president's purview, the climate doesn't. The president cannot usurp the constitution with regards to guns. The Dems may try to pull some shenanigans in the future but SCOTUS will put an end to it.

    Right. Like I said, you are partially correct. I just think you have it backwards. Blacks were targeted because of their durability and accessibility. Their durability made them more desirable to do the type of work for which they were being used. Their accessibility was a bonus that was exploited to the fullest. If they had turned out to be no more durable than European whites they wouldn't have been in demand and their accessibility wouldn't have been a factor.

    As I pointed out above, it was common for poor white kids, kidnapped off the streets of London, to be sold into slavery here. They were a lot closer than Africa. They were the original field workers but they couldn't handle it and would need to be replaced too often. So they were moved indoors and we went shopping elsewhere for field workers.

    Sorry but that isn't the only reason they were targeted. There were other factors that made blacks more desirable for field work. It's a fact whether you want to accept it or not.

    You are partially correct. They weren't targeted ONLY because they were accessible. ETA: The word kidnapping comes from the term kid nabbing, which was the practice of grabbing young white kids off the streets of London and selling them to ship captains who would ferry them across the Atlantic and sell them into slavery here. They were accessible too but they couldn't handle the work.

    While I don't disagree with you, we did kind of target blacks for slavery in the South. Not because they were an inferior race though. Quite the opposite, actually. The white slaves had been dropping dead in the fields because they couldn't handle the oppressive heat. The slave masters figured blacks, being from Africa, we're better suited for working in the fields as they were more accustomed to the heat. The white slaves aka "indentured servants" were moved into the house where they weren't subjected to harsh weather conditions and could stay alive long enough to pay off the investment.
