Thomas Jefferson and the Paradox of Slavery

Thomas Jefferson and the Paradox of Slavery The masters of slaves, it turned out, were themselves neither independent nor self-sufficient, but were bound to, and reliant upon, their slaves both for their welfare and their identity. This vague recognition in part accounts for the grim tone that Thomas Jefferson adopted in his analysis of slavery: He had to confront the prospect that Virginia, that America itself, was at least potentially as depraved as Europe… “How is it,” wondered Samuel Johnson in 1775, “that we hear the loudest yelps for liberty among the drivers of negroes?”…

The Mister Rogers-ification of Christianity

The Mister Rogers-ification of Christianity I would not dream of condemning Mister Rogers for keeping overt religious references out of his broadcasts in order to reach the widest possible audience and provide a valuable public service with his message of love. What I do condemn is the idea that Christian faith does not deserve representation unless first watered down to platitudes that replace the Cross with the Golden Rule, and the expectation that Christians, in public situations, ought to practice a similar self-censorship… As a former Pittsburgh-area kid, I love Mr. Rogers. His history as…

Senators Offer Up Unprecedented War Powers to President

Senators Offer Up Unprecedented War Powers to President WASHINGTON — A bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate Monday would give the president sweeping authority to wage endless war anywhere in the world with limited congressional intervention. Perversely billed as a plan to “reassert” Congressional power to “authorize where, when and with who we are at war,” the proposal for a new AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) falls way short of that promise. In fact, it achieves quite the opposite. The bill, if passed, would not only codify all of the authority the president has…

There’s one detail everyone has forgotten that is relevant today: President Reagan’s initial tax reform proposal included elimination the state and local income tax deduction. Pro-tax reform Democrats told Reagan right away that that ideas was a total non-starter, and…
