How slavery came to the USA & what can Democrats / Republicans do 2019?

Freedom from slavery:  So how many slaves came to the New World from Africa  and what  can the Democrats and Republicans do today?

Well how about that — only  a tiny percentage of slaves  came from Africa  to the New World. About 388,00 total.  A tiny percentage of the total.

According to PBS.org and Dr. Henry Louis Gates, between 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. Only about 388,000 were shipped to North America. That’s right: a tiny percentage.

Today in Africa there are an estimated 9.2 million people living in modern day slavery.  The population of Africa 2017  is 1,256,268,025.

If Democrats and Republicans were serious about eliminating the blight of slavery they may want to focus on modern day Africa.

This week Nancy Pelosi and 12 Democrats will travel to Ghana to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the first slaves from Africa arriving on American shores.

Will these Democrats speak out against the thriving slave trade in Africa today?

Trump’s Tax Cuts – Make permanent? Yes! Support ICE & defund “sanctuary ciites”

Democrats want to abolish I.C.E. and support “sanctuary cities”– 

Democrats want to abolish I.C.E. and support “sanctuary cities”.  Lots of people benefit from Trump’s tax cuts. So — let’s

Make permanent last year’s middle class tax cuts? Yes! Rep. Kevin Brady, the Ways and Means Committee chairman, has introduced legislation to do exactly that. Make Trump’s middle class tax cuts permanent.

Now’s the time for Republicans to schedule votes. Even though Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may not have 60 Senate candidates the Republicans can use Democrat “no” positions to huge effect in their races.

Now — two months from mid-term elections — is the time for you  to speak out in support of  I.C.E. and to de-fund “sanctuary cities”.

 

 

MSNBC host: Every good Republican has a tank … part of the right to bear arms

 Every good Republican has a tank…. part of the right to bear arms …so says MSNBC Chris Matthews.  

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews said Republicans were “fanatics” on guns and that they even supported private ownership of tanks.

Chris Matthews  added, “Well you know what the Republican’s says in their platform that the right to bear arms precedes the Constitution. It’s a God-given sort of theological right. They treat this like religion. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s a religious, essential notion to them that everybody should have any kind of gun they want, any—a bazooka, a tank. They never put a limit on it, ever.”
