    No, and he didn’t do Reanimator either.

    I guess you never saw Last House on the Left. He invented torture porn then moved on to more socially acceptable forms of horror.

    That’s actually not one of his. It was directed by a guy named Stuart Gordon.

    The last 100 years are the past. It is an artifact of the twentieth century that gives evidence to the historical fact of how recently there were still people stupid and ignorant enough to fail to recognize what a crappy idea it was to put up a statue like this one.

    A note to parents of murdered white children: Bear in mind that in death as in life, your kids are not as cute to the rest of us as they were to you, and try to exercise a little but of editorial judgement when attempting to select a photograph that will not inspire a reaction of, “Uggh, good riddance!”

    Nobody is suing churches to force them to perform weddings against their doctrines. It has never happened and it probably never will. If any body ever does try to file any such ridiculous lawsuit, it will be dismissed by the courts immediately and decisively.

    Bakeries and florists are not churches. A business doesn’t become a religious institution just because it is run by religious people. If we allowed nonsense like that, no businesses would ever obey any laws. Anti-discrimination laws are here to stay. You don’t get to refuse service to gay customers just because they don’t follow the rules of your religion. The courts understand that to legalize religion as an excuse for discrimination would legalize religious discrimination, because following another religion is also against your religion. In fact, you could discriminate against anybody because you can always start a new religion with whatever religious laws you choose to make up, and the only way to stop you would be to give the government power to dictate what is or is not a real religion. That’s why these laws were already enforceable against business owners even in states that did not yet grant legal recognition to same sex marriage.

    The Supreme Court didn’t come up with the 3/5ths compromise, and they couldn’t very well declare it, or slavery in general, unconstitutional when it’s part of the Constitution. They did screw up on the Dred Scott decision, nobody disputes that, but unilaterally doing away with slavery would have been an overreach not justifiable under the Constitution as it stood at that time.

    No, battlefield parks and monuments should be preserved, and history books should be written about the Civil War to honor those who fought on the right side.

  • [-6] August 30, 2015 at 5:15pm

    No we just want to remember the things that we are ashamed of in the past as things to be ashamed of, and not pretend that fighting for slavery was ever anything to be proud of.

    That doesn’t change the fact that this is something that should have been done a long time ago. If you are going to question the reasons for doing it now, then what reasons could there be to not do it now? There are none.

    No, but the events that were related to him are more than enough reason not to put up statues of the guy.

  • [-4] August 30, 2015 at 5:02pm

    Isn’t this 2015? Didn’t history keep going instead of stopping 150 years ago or 50 years ago? Doesn’t everything that’s happened since then count for something?

  • [-4] August 30, 2015 at 5:00pm

    No, they are destroying your fantasy. The lie that you have been told, that the ringleaders of the Confederacy were good men deserving to be honored, was never history. It was just a Big Lie repeated enough times.

  • [-6] August 30, 2015 at 4:56pm

    It makes it what it should be, an artifact of the past.

    The childish beliefs of the people who still think it’s okay to have statues honoring Confederate ringleaders have nothing to do history.

    I know all that. The unemployment rate and 93 million number are both horse manure for the same reason – because the civilian noninstitutional population includes about 50 million people who are not really part of the potential work force because of their youth or advanced age, disability, or income not derived from work.

  • [2] August 29, 2015 at 5:47pm

    No, the number is horse manure. To get 93 million you have to count every person who is old enough to have a job, including all of those who are too old to work, everybody 16 and older who is still in school, all fulltime parents in families that don’t need a second income, and the disabled. The number of people who could and should be working but aren’t right now is way less than half of what he said.

    I don’t care why an abortion is being done. There are no wrong reasons to get an abortion, and only one right reason to have a baby – because you want it and are prepared to care for it.

    Seen it, so what? A knee replacement isn’t pleasant to watch either, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good and necessary thing, or that we shouldn’t be grateful to the good people who make it possible to get one when you need it.

    God bless Planned Parenthood!

    Wow, 93 million people out of work, that sounds kind of made up. That would be about 45% unemployment, considering that at least 35% of the population is either old enough or young enough that you wouldn”t expect them to be working. You can fudge the unemployment figures, but you can’t fudge them that much.
