No, I do not watch it. I do worry about some who have no choice other then local channels and maybe CNN. I am not up on CNN.

That’s what I get for following in the long FR tradition of responding to a post before reading all of them.
Let me make up something ~ Kathleen Parker regularly does an “old fashioned” just for Elliot Spitzer. Keeps him calm on a day to day basis.
Thug politics go back thousands of years, but the organizational skills Burr brought to Tammany Hall let the Hall pretty much run NYC politics for close to 100 years.
On the other hand, Burr set a lot of the Senatorial protocol that continues to this day. When Burr stepped down at the end of his term and gave his farewell speech to the Senate many members were in tears.
Hamilton was practically begging Burr to kill him and Burr obliged.
Just for the sake of personal honor he'd probably shot all of them if he could have gotten away with it.
If there are corrections, note them somewhere.
They claim Adams defended a British soldier who killed Americans at the Boston Massacre. One problem, the Boston Massacre took place in 1770 and the trial was in the King's Court, with Adams an attorney admitted to the King's bar - 6 years before the Declaration of Independence. So at the time Adams was representing a fellow countryman who himself was serving their common country.
Exactly the type of ignorance and lies I would expect from an ObamaCon who whored herself (politically, of course) to Spitzer and CNN.
Hamilton wanted a strong executive. He was not a Royalist. He was expelled from Kings College for anti-royalist activities. He fought and bled for this country in the American revolution. He is the reason we had a strong currency for 200 years. And he died to protect this country from ambitious traitors like Burr.
Jefferson was the original salon liberal. A slave-holding Jacobin. Hamilton distrusted mobs. So did Washington.
It’s not like he spent 8 years fighting for this country after being expelled from college for anti-British activities or anything. It’s not like Hamilton was willing to become a pariah in supporting Aristocratic prinicples to ensure taht both Aristocratic and Democratic principles existed in our Constitution, thus preventing us from becoming the type of Jacobin state taht the Slavocrat Jefferson supported. And its not like Hamilton was killed by Aaron Burr because he prevented the ambitious future traitor from becoming President and Governor of NY.
Hamilton was turned down for admission to the College of New Jersey because he did not know classical Greek. He got his revenge at the Battle of Princeton.
With or without the Revolution America was going to far outdo the old homeland ~ if it hadn't have happened we'd probably have reverted the UK back to sheep farms and oak lots for the pigs ~ like it oughta' be.
As long as she doesn’t say that sitting next to Barney Frank.......
I was talking about turning it all into a park and simply shipping everybody into the Brit dominion in North America.
There were, of course, elements in the industrial revolution that were peculiar to UK, but it began in Belgium more than a century earlier.
Worse than that:
“Parker grew up in Winter Haven, Florida, graduated from Winter Haven High School in 1969, and attended Converse College before transferring to Florida State University where she majored in Spanish Literature. She also holds a Master’s degree in the subject from Florida State.”
I guess Spanish majors don’t have to study American History down south.
Isn’t Winter Haven where the circus hangs out? ;)
The Burr-Hamilton controversy was about NYC and votes their service with Washington is enshrined but the 80% who fought in the Milita with Sullivan is ignored.
