The Pollster Shepard was talking to said.. the polls aren't there. People don't support any type of ban on guns or ammunition.
Shep: "Polls? Polls? We can't go by polls. If we did we would still have slavery!"
I will be sure to never watch his shown again. Can’t stand his mascara anyway.
They loosed him on their viewers.
Now they should lose him.
I never watch this ahole....he has the lowest numbers of all the fox shows. Anyone they replaced him with would draw more viewers!!
No, not at all. A lot of bloodshed and treasure could have been saved had the south overall accepted that realization. Slavery as an institution was beginning to become non-viable and the costs were rising, especially considering that Britain had already outlawed slavery and the importation had become too risky.
Peculiar to them unless you count: Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, and West Virginia the slave states who did not secede and where it was legal until the 13th amendment was ratified about four months before the end of the war!!!!
My daddy put it this way: I’d like to buy him for what he’s worth and sell him for what he thinks he is worth!!!
You can add Jerry Rivers to that list.
Shep being Shep again. Queue the Geisha pic....
The term came from the southern leaders, John C. Calhoun and Alexander Stephens in particular, who used the term peculiar in terms of “our own” as in our own (southern) institution. It was not a reference to peculiar as meaning strange. The states that did not secede were considered to be southern states. West Virginia seceded from Virginia and stayed with the union.
Just another homosexual liar.
The term peculiar references that they were alone in their sanctioning slavery...which they were not...so you consider Deleware and Maryland to be a southern states.
His ratings must be tanking.
I guess FOX opinions started a little early.
The 13th Amendment wasn't ratified till December, 1865, some months after the war ended.
When it did go into effect, it freed slaves only in KY (around 50,000) and DE (around 200).
All other slaves in America (98.75%) had been freed before the war ended either by the Emancipation Proclamation or state action.
He did no such thing.
He recognized that under the Constitution the federal government had no power to interfere with slavery in a state, and said so publicly many times.
Most abolitionists didn't care what the Constitution said, in fact some of them denounced it and publicly burned it.
Lincoln campaigned in favor of prohibiting the spread of slavery into new areas, not of abolishing it in the states where it existed.
Hey Shep, if we wen’t by polls, your sorry ass would not be on television.
Shepard Smith. Why does anyone listen to her? Even my wife can’t stand her.
Man, liberals are acting like inbred royalty. Maybe they are inbred.
