  • Archaeology dig may uncover nation's earliest free African-American settlment

    08/05/2013 2:19:06 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 7 replies
    In Easton, Md., an untold story of free African-Americans is being discovered through bits of glass, shards of pottery and oyster shells. Piece by piece, archaeologists and historians from two universities and the community are uncovering the history of The Hill, which they believe is the earliest settlement of free African-Americans in the United States, dating to 1790. Treme, in New Orleans, is recognized as the oldest free black community in the nation, dating to 1812. But researchers say that could change based on findings from the Easton dig. "It's not just a black story. It's an American story," said...

    The American Prospect ^ | March 5, 2010 | Paul Waldman
    I almost feel bad for Mitt Romney. He's obviously a smart guy, and when he was governor of Massachusetts he was pretty much the technocratic kind of governor the voters expected -- not pushing conservative social issues too far, creating a health-care reform that's a lot like what the Obama plan ended up looking like. But since he wants to be president, he has to get past a Republican primary electorate that really doesn't care about smarts and technocratic skill. Identity politics is king in the GOP, and Mitt just doesn't have an identity he can hang his hat on....

    You would think that this story is right out of science fiction. But the facts appear to be that the US Democrat-controlled Congress intends to destroy the Republican middle class with $11 per gallon gasoline. The Democrats’ base -- wealthy white “limousine liberals”, and very poor people -- won’t be harmed, but the families who live in suburbia will be devastated. The multi-millionaires like billionaire Senators John Kerry & Jay Rockefeller, financial speculator George Soros, filmmaker Michael Moore, and actors George Clooney & Meg Ryan can easily pay for their auto and private jet fuel. Poor people are forced to...

  • Republicanism proves a tough sell in Harlem

    HARLEM -- When the Republican Party declared its courtship of African-American voters a priority, it began looking forward to the day when enough black voters shift to the GOP to make even Democratic Party strongholds like New York -- and places like Harlem's 125th Street Square, the historic center of black intellectual thought -- fertile ground for Republican candidates. Ken Mehlman, chairman of the Republican National Committee, raised eyebrows last year with a series of speeches at black gatherings, declaring at the NAACP convention that his party ''was wrong" for past race-baiting strategies. A small but significant group of African-American...

    In the brutal world of Washington politics, it pays to keep your friends close -- and your potential critics even closer. Was that President Bush's strategy last week when he repeatedly lauded the work of Colonel H. R. McMaster of the Third Armored Calvary Regiment?

    WASHINGTON -- Former senator John Edwards got high marks from labor for a new effort to unionize hotel workers, and Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold's demand this week that President Bush be censured was music to the ears of activists on the left. Meanwhile, Mark Warner, former Virginia governor, recently hired one of the leftist blogosphere's biggest names to run his Internet outreach campaign, and Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana began a blog on the liberal Huffington Post, peddling his foreign policy views. The next round of prospective Democratic presidential candidates, even those with centrist credentials, is actively courting the Democratic...

    (Easton-AP May 17, 2002 7:25 AM)_ Three men who are described as being of middle-eastern descent have been arrested after suspicious activity at a reservoir in Easton. Easton police got a call about seven-thirty last night that three men were spotted on top of a supply tank of the Easton Reservoir Filtration Plant. One of the men was reportedly using a video camera to film the area around the plant and the reservoir dam. The three were taken into custody and charged with trespassing. Easton police chief John Solomon says because of the heightened state of security for reservoirs, the...
