Dear McCommas and TayDigga

Hey McCommas! I'm glad you really did bookmark me. I do consider it an honor! I've already read Tammy Bruce's two previous books, "The NewThought Police" and " The Death of Right and Wrong"; that's why I was so excited when "The New American Revolution" came out. "Revolution" is proving a good read, but I think Tammy is a bit too optimistic about the renewal of American patriotism. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think so. I will check out Half.com when I can. I can only blog when I'm at the library since I don't have a computer at home, so it might take me a while to get there, but I'll get there! Again, welcome to the Zone, McCommas. I hope I can keep you interested!

Now for you, TayDigga. I have only one thing to say to you: YES I AM BLACK!!!!!!! Just because I'm not a kneejerk liberal Democrat doesn't mean I'm not Black. If you knew anything about history you'd know that most Blacks were Republican from the end of the Civil War until the Great Depression. Why? Because Abraham Lincoln was Republican. In fact, the Republican party was founded specifically as an anti-slavery party. And in 1964 more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats. The segregated South was known as the Solid South--solidly Democratic. And as for being sympathetic, I'm sympathetic toward all people who try to get ahead by legal means. I have no sympathy for anyone who thinks they're entitled to break the law just because of their race and/or class. Caring about someone means holding them accountable when they do wrong and encouraging them when they do right. For the time being conservatives in both parties are the only people willing to say that publicly. That's what I'm zealous for. Got it, TayDigga?

Odd that you should bring up that little factoid about more Republicans voting for the 1964 civil rights act than Democrats. I was musing about that on my drive to work this morning. It just popped into my head. I forget the context.

I am rather proud of that. I hope you are too.

Another thing about Black Republicans is the day is coming when Republicans will be getting 20 percent or more of the Black vote. And when that day comes, it will be the end of any chances the Democrats will have of ever controling Congress again.

That is why you see so many Republicans talking to black groups as the President did recently.

How great is half.com? I just snapped up Tammy's new book, hardcover for 98 cents! I just bought Phyllis Schlafly's "The Supremacists: The Tyranny Of Judges And How To Stop It" for three dollars. I love half.com. Best place on the net for books. Way better than Amazon or even Ebay (though ebay does own half.com and uses their rating system).

Happy reading poor girl.

Did a google of my username and saw this. Find it interesting that you use the "Abe Lincoln was a Republican" considering the ideals of both parties switched around the Civil Rights movement. The fact is Abe would be a Demo today. Everyone who "knows their history" knows that. So a "repub" today isn't what a repub was in Abe Lincolns time and neither Demo's. I don't fault u for being repub...just hope its pure and your not one of those blacks with a distorted perception of your own people. And as far as McCommas support, the day Blacks regularly start voting for Repubs is when the start regularly caring...
