Slavery was worldwide but we had adopted this in our Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
And yet despite those words we held some men---and clearly they must have been Men, humans, since they performed complex tasks and looked after white children---as slaves and passed laws that allowed us to rape their women.
Sure, it was common around the world at one time. But we did it for about 100 years after declaring that all men were created equal. That is rather unusual. In countries where they believe that all men are NOT created equal, and where all men do not have the right to liberty, it can be understood. But that is not us. We did it despite our principles, and we need to know how that happened.
Then you'll need to ask someone who lived during the period to find out what the mindset was. Regardless, there is no choice but to move on. America passed laws that legalized raping of slaves? Get a grip.

I don't rant agaisnt your country. Never have. I've said here, but your reading and understanding skills are not exactly honed, against slavery which still exists in parts of Saudi Arabia, the Sudan, parts of the Sahel (ask , I'll tell you what that is) and very little in Egypt. To be condemned, all of it, is that clear? Slavery, by the way, and you'll say I'm condemning christianity, is not only tolerated in both the old but in the new testament also and in the gospel. That's not to say it's okay. It's not, but just thought that you, as a good foul-mouthed christian, should be aware of.
It's not an old one. North, Central and South America are realities. Look at any map, they are so noted. Do specify. I understand far better than you what it is to be an American. For example, I fully understand the electoral process by which you elect a president. You don't. You disrespect your very constitution by denying that Barack Obama was duly vetted as to his citizenship and won the 2 last elections and still, to this day, have not acknowledged him as your president.
Dingbat! Nah, you're never holier than thou. LMAO! "I understand far better than you what it is to be an American"? Sure you do jacqazz. You're clueless and will remain that way. In Geology, transitional zones are nothing new. Sorry to disappoint you. I do not think Omama was vetted by his party. I do not believe his phoney birth certificate either. Omama is not my president. You're amusing and irrelevant at best.

Like 150 years or so ago. Don't ask America "why", ask those who started it. But then you wouldn't be able to take your shots at America, would you?

Incidentaly, and as an "à-côté", Obama was not only vetted by his party, you can bet your bottom dollar was a hundred times vetted by the Republicans, then no doubt by the FBI, thereafter by the both houses of congress,the supreme court, John McCain, Palin and various other notables.

How are they going to pay to setup exchanges in States that are refusing to do it? That number is growing. Heard today it could be as high as 25 States. Oh, your president also said, "if I haven't cut the deficit in half by the end of my term, I will not seek re-election". So much for his word, huh? He also said, this would be the most transparent administration ever. Again, so much for his word, huh? Where is the truth of what happened in Libya? We have not been told. Anyone following this goon has been conned, plain and simple.

4th Straight Year: Obama Thanksgiving Resolution Doesn’t Thank God

For the fourth straight year, the Thanksgiving resolution from President Barack Obama fails to actually thank God — which is the fundamental reason why Thanksgiving is observed.

Fourth straight year Wojo cannot accept that 90+% of all Americans believe in God. Obama can still wish atheists a happy Harvest Feast.
They were referring to his weekly address, not his Thanksgiving Proclamation.

Again you both fail at fact-checking.

"On Thanksgiving Day, Americans everywhere gather with family and friends to recount the joys and blessings of the past year. This day is a time to take stock of the fortune we have known and the kindnesses we have shared, GRATEFUL FOR THE GOD-GIVEN BOUNTY (emphasis added) that enriches our lives. As many pause to lend a hand to those in need, we are also reminded of the indelible spirit of compassion and mutual responsibility that has distinguished our Nation since its earliest days."

The Afghan Quarterback

The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.

KABOOM!

He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

KA-BLOOEY!

Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

BULLS-EYE!

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States, teaches him the great game of football and the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, says the old Muslim woman."You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says,

"I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago "
