The other 13th Amendment is the Corwin Amendment. Google "Lincoln endorsed Corwin Amendment." The amendment passed under Buchanan and sent to the states for ratification in 1860. Lincoln endorsed it in his first inaugural saying he had no objection to permanently protecting slavery in the states, where it existed, through this amendment.
This is delicately worded claptrap. Revisionists can (and do) claim many things, but they lack facts. Documents (widely available on the internet) are quite clear about the reason for the war: slavery. These documents go on to chronicle how the Confederate Congress drafted people, declared martial law, and suspended habeas corpus. A "Lincoln was more like Hitler than Jefferson" argument contains more than a touch of delusion. War is hell, and we should learn lessons from it rather than try to revise what happened.
I really don't understand why people argue about the past and who was right and who was wrong. What does it matter now? Besides, I don't think anyone who is alive now was around in 1861. To know what really happened back then it matters which books you read. There was no YOU TUBE back then to record everything that happened.
Jack Hunter is incompetent. Marcus Sanford has voted for war crime spending and borrowing from China to keep the insanity going, paying for Chinese air craft carriers with our interest payments on such debts.. ... attacking Social Security benefits by the pennies WHILE SPENDING TRILLIONS on endless polluter oil wars and impeaching Clinton for the lies about sex Sanford was GUILTY OF AT THAT VERY TIME is not a person Jack Hunter should be spreading "conservative" lies for....the forked tongue calling social programs "welfare" & war crime spending anything but CORPORATION FASCIST MEGA WELFARE must end out of the mouths of City Paper & other voices... I am still shocked how stupid people can be ignoring the facts about BOTH REPUBLICANS LuLu and Marcus... and censoring hapless Green Eugene Platt ices the cake of dupoply... 4 people illegally voted inside this Congressional District to keep me off the ballot from 100 miles away... CONSERVATIVES & liberals alike ought to defend the Constitution and the ONE MAN ONE VOTE dicta settled law since the sixties.... but, I'm not going to sue anyone in that room as do many "parties" in this state for the flimsiest of "reasons" such as BALLOTgate 2012 where 225 of us were thrown off Dem & GOP ballot lines by the corrupt gangsters of South Carolina courts.... I"ve been busy traveling the nation to rally NEW PROGRESSIVES and peace activists to END THE WAR CONGRESS IN 2014 @LarryAccomplish 843-926-1750 Larry_Carter_Center@yahoo.com Larry Carter Center For Congress 2014
As always, very well-stated. Thank you, Jack!
All the best. We can make a rational, non-churchy conservatism in the USA. Though I'm not sure we can do it before the US defaults on our national debt. But that's for another day.
You will be missed. As I read this article, I could hear your voice speaking the words. For a minute there, I caught myself making sure that I was not going to hit any car, just like in the mornings when you were on the radio. Keep up the fight and call a spade a spade. Thank you!
When the day comes that the GOP is no longer seen as the party of war; when its default positions are no longer based on church doctrines; and when Lindsey Graham and John McCain are viewed as outsiders....Jack will be among those to thank.
Good luck, Jack! Will miss you, but best wishes to your new responsibilities.
96 WAVE was a truly great station. For many years it was ranked as one of the top 5 rock stations in the country. First in America to play Pearl Jam. It was the voice & sound of Charleston for years. Like the original Music Farm and the Windjammer before Hugo, it too has become part of the nostalgia of our youth. Our high school & college years when music helped shape our lives, and when music, especially rock, was still great.
Every time you walk in a grocery store and buy beer on Sunday, either before getting on the boat, hitting the golf course, or a halftime beer run, you should thank 96 WAVE! They made it happen!
No surprise Ron & FCB are being assholes as usual. Gotta love that liberal tolerance and staunch support for the 1st Amendment. Not! Fail! Take your pick!
@John Cecil - Racist? Clearly sarcasm, parody, metaphors, & satire go right over your head. And as usual, your kind denying the truth with revisionist history. As far as why 96 WAVE went under, it was foolish management after being bought by corporate radio, APEX, and them alienating those that made 96 WAVE what it was and by changing the format. Outsiders trying to fix what ain't broken usually has such catastrophic results.
Such was the seed of demise for another Charleston radio station, the late great 3WZ. Another station that now resides in the fond memories of our youth.
Charleston has had 3 great radio stations. The 70s were dominated by WTMA and 3WZ. I remember laying in bed on Sunday nights listening to the King Biscuit Flower Hour on WTMA. I remember one summer wanting to win the GTO they were giving away even though I was still years away from having a drivers license. As the 70s, like AM radio, began to fade, 3WZ & FM became the sound of Charleston. Then 96 WAVE took the torch and pored gas on it!! That flame burned brighter than WTMA & 3WZ combined.
Music shapes and molds the minds of the young, which is why Rock 'n Roll helped bring down the Soviet Union and why Communists outlaw it and take over the media as part of their revolutions.
It's no coincidence that the quality of music and our youth both started going to hell around the same time!!!
In my short time here in Charleston, you never made me think -- except about your passion for Fieros.
Good luck, Jack. In these many years -- especially the Southern Avenger days -- I rarely agreed with you, but you always made me think.
We have yet to begun to fight!!! Conservatism is being reborn. Thanks for being a midwife!
God-Speed Jack-- We will miss the shenanigans and the voice of a true conservative Charlestonian. See you on the Facebook.
Thanks for all your great writing, Jack! I look forward to following you anywhere you publish from now on.
all that's missing is the flight suit and the Mission Accomplished sign.
Well, Jack, I couldn't help liking some of your columns the years, especially on international issues. You lost me with your support of Rand Paul and general Republicanism. Anyway, good luck. I will miss you to some extent.
Coincidentally, up here in Raleigh, the region's best newspaper, the News & Observer, just lost its regular rightwing columnist, Rick Martinez. Ricky, a more mainstream Republican, has gone off to work with our new Neanderthal governor.
I won't miss him to any extent.
I'm pretty surprised you were the Southern Avenger. That was so racist there was a national boycott and all the subscribers dropped their advertising for 96 Wave, that went out of business, and reinforced the negative stereotype of South Carolina being a racist place. Glad you moved on to a more credible platform and dropped the racist clown act, however all the racist theatrics, including the flag issue over the statehouse, was a distraction and didn't represent the views of most people.
I love how when Republicans are beaten down they declare victory and "move on".
You're not a libertarian, you're a neo-confederate anachronism. Bye!
