Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I won't bore you with the details but the last Texas legislature made a major change in post-DWI driver's license hearings. Why do I mention this? Because the change was one page in a 200 page bill that had nothing to do with DWI or driver's licenses. I bet you could ask every legislator if they were aware they voted on the change and they would answer "no." (Except the author that stuck it in there.) And I bet 95% of them couldn't explain the hearings in the first place.
  • Ok, I just bored you.
  • NFL note: Brett Favre ended up split out as a wide receiver last night in a preseason game and then through threw an illegal crackback block? There's about 100 dumb things about the whole play. Edit: Video (while it lasts)
  • NCAA: This will be weird --- the Cotton Bowl Classic (which is moving into Jerry's Death Star) will have a new day and time after next season: Jan. 7, 2011 at 7 p.m.
  • I made a trip to the Decatur Walmart the other day (after avoiding it for almost a year.) I could people watch in that place all day long. Scary.
  • Fox's Glenn Beck has finally figured out the more outrageous you act, the more people will talk about you.
  • High school football is much more exciting when you are in high school.
  • When I walk by the spice section in the grocery store, I wonder what people do with all of them.
  • If you were interested in the recent news story about the girl that was kidnapped in California and held for almost two decades, and (stay with me here) you have a working knowledge of Google Street View, this is kinda creepy.
  • MzChief sure has been grumpy lately.
  • I wonder if happy babies end up being happy people?
  • It amazes me how people fail to realize that they see the world through a prism that was formed through their incredibly limited experiences.
  • Every office in the Wise County courthouse has a personality, and they are all very different. One big dysfunctional family that's pretty, uh, functional.
  • I'm not a hunter but the first time I ever went dove hunting (1991?), I hit a bird with my first shot ever.
  • It seems like you can turn the TV on in the middle of the night (or on Saturday early afternoon) and all it is is a bunch of paid programming by snake oil salesman. Man, there's a lot of scams out there.
  • The federal government had to purchase the land for a United 93 September 11th Memorial for $9.5 million?
  • For every teen that gave birth in Dallas in 2006, 28% of them resulted in the teen's second child. "Of the city's 3,739 teen births in 2006, the report says, 64 percent were to Hispanics, 30 percent to blacks and 6 percent to whites. Although most were to 18- or 19-year-olds, there were 72 to girls 14 or younger"

Re: Teens having babies in Dallas.

Throughout history people have migrated. This usually results in war. We have Turks in northern Iraq, the Germans fought for the Sudentland, the Shoshone (aka Comanche) kicked the Apache off the plains of Texas and brought their language with them. The Serbs and Bosnians are fighting. The English migrated across the Atlantic as did the Spaniards. The Apache and Comanche now speak English. The Aztec now speak Spanish.

You have a choice, let your descendants learn Spanish and take on the brown skin of the Aztec or you can migrate. Your government has made this decision for you and your descendants. You voted for them and therefore voted for the surrender.

wordkyle said...

1011 - When practiced, the Republican plan you outlined works 100% of the time (the only one that does.) Is teen pregnancy rampant because teens don't know about condoms? Unlikely. Those "second births" are not a result of ignorance. So maybe "how to" isn't the answer. The debate returns to the consequences of the quality of decisions we make, doesn't it? Perhaps we should teach our kids how to make better decisions, rather than how to more efficiently make poor decisions.

No one talks about the enslavement of American Indians by warring tribes. No one talks about how Sacagawea was enslaved by the Sioux and sold to a French trapper. No one talks about the horrible wicked Sioux. You don't complain about my ancestors being persecuted and kicked out of Spain, having all their property confiscated and leaving with only the shirts on their backs. No one talks about the evil Spain. No one talks about how evil the black Africans were who enslaved other Africans and sold the to slave traders. You probably believe that white people ran into the jungle and captured and enslaved the natives. America is the only bad country and all the evil people are white. That is your stupid ignorant opinion.

1125 - amen

1137 - Bristol Palin's pregnancy could have been avoided if she had practiced abstinence (100% effectiveness rate.) They may have used a condom (85-98 percent effectiveness depending on IF the correct condom is used and IF the condom is used correctly and IF the condom is used every...single...time.) Do you think "raging hormones" ever push teens to skip using a condom? If they're going to need discipline for that decision, why not practice discipline a step earlier and avoid the risk all together?

HISTORY LESSON FOR 11:03...

It is safe to say, the civil war killed most of the wealth of the U.S. and left the U.S. deep in debt. The true wealth of the U.S. being generated by the middle class of the U.S. did not really begin until after WWII. The wealth of the U.S. really got kicked into high gear in the late 1950's to early 1960's. There was another jump in U.S. wealth in the 1980's. Personally, it is my opinion the U.S. and much of the rest of the world has prospered more when each culture allows equal participation by people of both sexes and all races.

Oh, since you honestly believe Blacks built the U.S. explain to me why there is not a single majority Black inhabited/run nation that is worth spit. Name me a single majority Black country where the majority of Blacks have a higher standard of living and greater opportunity than Blacks in the U.S.

Incidentally, there were far more White indentured servants/slaves in the U.S. in the 1500-1790 than there were Black slaves. One half to two thirds of all immigrants to Colonial America arrived as indentured servants.

Another FACT of which you are seemingly ignorant. The slaves brought to the U.S. were slaves PRIOR to being brought to the U.S. Unlike what has been portrayed in movies and television, there were no white slave hunters beating the bushes in Africa and gathering up free Africans to enslave. Most slaves brought from Africa were enslaved and sold by BLACKS in Africa. Most slaves were enslaved due to the fact their tribe lost a war/dispute to another tribe.

One more bit of information you might like to know. EVERY race and or culture, including Whites, have at some point in their history been SLAVES.

You're welcome.

Hey wordkyle, I'm 1137. Hope your day is going well.
While I completely agree with your assessment on the effectiveness of abstinence versus contraceptives - it just doesn't work in the real world. That's why I used the Palin example. We can all agree that teenage sex is bad. Many of us can agree that pre-marital sex is wrong (from a Christian viewpoint). But, how many of us had sex as teenagers, or out of wedlock? Abstinence is the best solution, but kids also need to know the options on contraceptives.

Bully for micro-democracies. It's much easier to post something rude and obnoxious when not using a screen name. You might not know an actual name but you can readily identify the person who said what when a screen name is used.

200/1137 - Apparently education on contraceptives isn't working in the real world either, hence Barry's post. In the real world, a young lady who chooses not to have sex will not get pregnant, nor will she contract STDs. We should be doing everything we can to promote that choice, rather than a "here's how to have sex without consequences" agenda.

If you want to decrease the number of teen pregancies then provide the pill free of charge through the school nurse where they can't get them without parents knowing. Put condom machines in the high school bathrooms and let's check back a year from now and see if the numbers have dropped. That is the answer. Not all this crazy just say no bull. And for those of you saying it will just promote & condon premarital sex get over it! They are doing it just like my generation did. If you don't want your kid to have access to the contraceptives then teach them abstinance & I am sure they want need them.

Someone please tell how Favre's block was illegal? His head was in front, so not clipping. The guy he blocked did not line up on the line of scrimmage (he was about 4 yards off at the snap), so Favre cutting him below the waist was perfectly legal. So, what part was illegal? (Maybe getting injured by a QB? I could see how that should be grounds for being cut from your team, but I still don't see how it is illegal according to football rules.)

To Mike Huncho...
You might want to get with the times and realize that although for many years, the most widely accepted interpretation of post-bellum economic growth in the United States was the Beard-Hacker thesis, which was first put forth in 1927. The thesis contends that the Civil War served as a watershed event that fundamentally altered the course of America’s economic growth by stimulating and encouraging greater levels of industrial activities. There has been a substantial amount of evidence provided since the mid-twentieth century that discredits the validity of many claims made within the Beard-Hacker thesis. Although it seems as though many of the thesis’ original interpretations were incorrect, the overall logic for citing the Civil War as an impetus for economic change remains defensible but was more inclined to have led to the demise of the overall U.S. economy than assisted the growth of the U.S. economy.

It does not take a rocket scientist to deduce that killing 600,000+ of the most able bodied citizens, destroying two thirds of the land mass and rendering a third of the U.S. population in abject poverty would not have a profoundly detrimental effect on the U.S. economy.

MZChief - If you want to plagiarize someone, at least have the common courtesy to cite the source.

You placed these exact words in your reply to me... "that although for many years, the most widely accepted interpretation of post-bellum economic growth in the United States was the Beard-Hacker thesis, which was first put forth in 1927. The thesis contends that the Civil War served as a watershed event that fundamentally altered the course of America’s economic growth by stimulating and encouraging greater levels of industrial activities.

Interesting that Thomas Nelson Jr. of Hampden Sydney College also wrote the SAME EXACT WORDS for his Honors Abstract. (Although it appears he ended his passage in a different direction than yours...)

"A Historical and Empirical Analysis of Structural Change in the United State Economy, 1850-1900
For many years, the most widely accepted interpretation of post-bellum economic growth in the United States was the Beard-Hacker thesis, which was first put forth in 1927. The thesis contends that the Civil War served as a watershed event that fundamentally altered the course of America’s economic growth by stimulating and encouraging greater levels of industrial activities. There has been a substantial amount of evidence provided since the mid-twentieth century that discredits the validity of many claims made within the Beard-Hacker thesis. Although it seems as though many of the thesis’ original interpretations were incorrect, the overall logic for citing the Civil War as an impetus for economic change remains defensible. This paper examines labor shifts within the United States from 1850-1900 by utilizing the assumptions given by models of structural change. The results provide an alternative, economic, explanation consistent with the Beard-Hacker thesis. Further, the assumptions of the model allow for more modern criticisms to be included in the analysis."

Please go back and reread original comment and then research (not plagiarize) a bit about the Northern bellum and antebellum economy, demographics affected by the conflict, wealth created, and how it drove wealth over the next twenty years.

Thank you for locating a working link to the data I posted at 8:30, which is something, in my haste to publish my comment prior to watching a video with my Mr., was, incapable of locating. Including additional, factual, data to a body of work does not twist the facts of any of the information. My failure to post a working link does not alter the fact that your original statements regarding the Civil War's impact on the U.S. ecomony, clearly based on the assertions of the Beard-Hacker thesis, are wrong and have been disputed and disproved by someone far more educated in the study of the economic impact of the Civil War, on the U.S., than you or me. Again, thank you for providing gravitas to my 8:30 statement.
Beard-Hacker thesis dumped

It does not take a rocket scientist just an educated understanding of the socio-economic impact of civil war on a nation's economy and future economic development to, accurately, deduce the long-term damaged caused by civil war.
Source

Some historians believe that in light of the escalating pace of industrialization in the U.S. prior to the war, the evidence indicates the war slowed industrialization and dramatically delayed industrialization in the South.
Source

The Civil War had been, mainly, fought in the South and 90% of the South's wealth had been destroyed, including but not limited to live-stock, infrastructure, land and real-estate.

If you require additional sources to help you realize the folly of your wrong-headed notions, solely based on a biased, outdated thesis written more than 70-years ago, let me know. However, prior to me providing you anymore of my sources, substantiating my point of view, you will need to show me yours.

As for your comments? You pull three urls leading back to open source dictionaries and answer.com *rollseyes* and one college paper about the generic argument that Civil Wars (as in any and all) cause damage to economies. Duh.

I would have expected you to at least find something from Economic History Services... maybe from Ransom at UC Riverside.

http://eh.net/encyclopedia/article/ransom.civil.war.us

By the way, I never claimed to espouse the views of the Beards or Mr. Hacker. I did give you a couple of quick and easy examples of companies that massively profited during the Civil War. And I do know that the growth of the economy slowed during the war but did not stop, and then continued to pick up steam after the war. (See "The American Civil War: A Handbook of Literature and Research, Chp. 38, Pg. 512-513)

I enjoy spending quite a bit of time studying history, including the ACW. But today I enjoyed it more when you proved yourself a plagiarizer here on the blog.

As for you criticising my sources of Harvard, Yale, Encyclopedia.com and an article at Answers.com citing the works of; Charles A. and Mary R. Beard, The Rise of American Civilization, 2 vols., 1927., Jay Luvaas, The Military Legacy of the Civil War, 1959., Emory M. Thomas, The Confederacy as a Revolutionary Experience, 1971., Robert M. Utley, Frontier Regulars: The United States Army and the Indian, 1866–1890, 1973., Ira Berlin, Joseph P. Reidy, and Leslie S. Rowland, eds., The Black Military Experience, 1982., Edward Hagerman, The American Civil War and the Origins of Modern Warfare, 1988., Philip Shaw Paludan, “A People's Contest”: The Union and Civil War, 1861–1865, 1988., Richard Franklin Bensel, Yankee Leviathan: The Origins of Central State Authority in American, 1859–1877, 1990., Theda Skocpol, Protecting Soldiers and Mothers: The Political Origins of Social Policy in the United States, 1992, who all have vastly more knowledge about the Civil War than you. Is, at best, asinine.

I will admit, the link to the article citing Wikipedia was weak. However, thank you for providing the article by Ransom which does indeed prove my original statement at 12:39 that the Civil War destroyed much of the wealth of the U.S. Which in turn supports my assertion that the U.S. was not founded, much less built, on the backs of Black slaves.

Incidentally, if you honestly believe I care what a dolt like you thinks of me, you more than likely believe you are Cal and Ricky Bobby is your best friend. Like I said, if you can find current data that supports your position I will consider discussing the issue with you otherwise, think/comment what you will about me but it can be no less than what I think of you, old man.

Still a plagiarizer, no matter how much you will not admit to it. It was black in white for all to see.

That's a neat bibiliography that went into your links you posted after the fact. It doesn't make those general entries about the CW any different... But regardless you are just making arguments up for your own sake. You are still arguing mostly about things no one cared about. My comments stand pat and were backed up by a very authoritative source that I posted.

Go ahead and keep hammering on economic theories, calling me an old man, claiming I finished your work of citing a source... meh. Bottom line, you popped off with some exaggerations, plagiarized to cover those, and continue to deny it. Normally not worth any of my time, but when the queen B---- of this board shows her rear... ;)
