People may obtain the wrong impressions about others merely by judgments from blogs and social networking. Yesterday on my blog, I made some comments based on knowledge from conservative and liberal writers of the 1960s. The comments were poking fun of Abraham Lincoln. Some could conclude that my “what if…” scenario about Lincoln never attacking the South would have ultimately -perhaps (no certainty – as I said in my post) proven better for African-Americans and USA race relations. Those are ideas based on history and the way humans function. If someone concludes from that posting I am racist or anything else which is negative, I feel real sorry for them.
After all, Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer. Other than leaving me in great debt and forcing frivolous lawsuits on society – the cause of our higher insurance premiums and what not – what have lawyers done for me that is positive? I have a hard time determining what good has come from lawyers – the people who control the Florida and Federal legislative branches – I have heard figures of 90 – 95%. But I will NOT be like Fox News and impose these figures on the public. Instead, I will ask this question: Am I correct?
Have a great day – the day after Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.
