29th Carnival of the Liberals!


Step right up — not even one thin dime, not even one-tenth of a dollar!

The 29th Carnival of the Liberals is up over at Daylight Atheism.

And one of my blog posts is included, the one where I take Roy Moore to task for his uncharitable, anti-American views on having a Moslem in Congress. And while this is a blog of history, events have overtaken that post on the day the Carnival set up its tents — Rep. Ellison creatively pointed out the value of religious freedom and tied it to the founders (go see how.)

Go see the Carnival of the Liberals — there are a lot of posts noted there that are worthy of your attention.

    I will take this opportunity to give one of my favorite sites–not a blog–Boondocks.

    It is a very good history site, especially on Mark Twain. Twain was the VP of the Anti-Imperialist League and this is their platform from 1899. I just give the beginning.

    “We hold that the policy known as imperialism is hostile to liberty and tends toward militarism, an evil from which it has been our glory to be free. We regret that it has become necessary in the land of Washington and Lincoln to reaffirm that all men, of whatever race or color, are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We maintain that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. We insist that the subjugation of any people is “criminal aggression” and open disloyalty to the distinctive principles of our government.

    We earnestly condemn the policy of the present national administration in the Philippines. It seeks to extinguish the spirit of 1776 in those islands. We deplore the sacrifice of our soldiers and sailors, whose bravery deserves admiration even in an unjust war. We denounce the slaughter of the Filipinos as a needless horror. We protest against the extension of American sovereignty by Spanish methods.”

    As you will see, there is much much more at the site.
