"The Freedmen’s Bureau

The president and Congress disagreed not only about the best way to readmit southern states to the Union but also about the best way to redistribute southern land. Lincoln, for his part, authorized several of his wartime generals to resettle former slaves on confiscated lands. General William Tecumseh Sherman’s Special Field Order No. 15 set aside land in South Carolina and islands off the coast of Georgia for roughly 40,000 former slaves. Congress, meanwhile, created the Freedmen’s Bureau in early 1865 to distribute food and supplies, establish schools, and redistribute additional confiscated land to former slaves and poor whites. Anyone who pledged loyalty to the Union could lease forty acres of land from the bureau and then have the option to purchase them several years later."

Lincoln authorized Sherman’s orders.

Nobody buys newspapers anymore at anything close to the cost of production.

The Los Angeles Times is virtually free on home delivery. Same with San Diego Union-Times. Nobody buys the paper, but they keep publishing anyway. Just like the Pennysaver.

Time Warner Cable in Los Angeles has dropped CBS from their channel list.

A group demanding access to organ transplants for illegal immigrants is protesting outside a Chicago hospital, saying they won’t leave until the facility’s CEO agrees to a meeting.

The protests at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital entered their seventh day Monday. On Sunday, 40 picketers were out in front of the hospital, while 14 were on a hunger strike.

"We're asking for help," said Blanca Gomez, a 23-year-old in need of a kidney transplant. "I go to dialysis three times a week. I'm not going off the hunger strike until I get on the transplant list."

The group claims 14 illegal Mexican immigrants who live in Chicago need a liver or kidney transplant, but can’t afford them because they are denied health care.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital offers live donor liver transplants, but a spokesman on Sunday declined to comment about their transplant policies.

No, Government Motors products have been objectively crappy for 30 years.

The economics of Detroit were based on a dominant Big Three that no longer exists.

Does anybody have any idea of the looming disaster, maybe two to five years down the road from the Fed pumping 38-40 billion every month into the markets? Think of it as borrowing a million or two to put gas in your car. How you gonna pay it back?
