July 11, 2016 By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the superb blogsite FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column of this page).
Good Monday to all of you. We start off this week on a rather sour note, in view of the recent spate of murders suffered by black men via police gunshot in Baton Rouge, LA and Falcon Heights, MN, as well as the horrible ambush murder of policemen done in reprisal in Dallas, TX. In today’s podcast, our podcaster extraordinaire BURR DEMING examines some interesting historical parallels: John Quincy Adams’ noble efforts to debate the issue of slavery in pre-Civil War America with the recent House Democrats’ sit-in to force a Republican vote on banning gun sales to possible terrorists; as well as incidences of intolerance displayed by current Speaker of the House Paul Ryan with former racist Alabama governor George Wallace. Check it out for an incredible coincidence.
Burr says, “Historical parallels are not always historical repetition. Sometimes they are coincidence.
Sometimes parallels rhyme.
We can find more than a single parallel with the recent house sit-in, the goal of which was to keep American manufacturers from selling weapons to ISIS.”
