    I wonder where the uninformed spouses came from to continue the family for 148 years.

    I would like to point out that this is a comic strip, so the standards of logic surrounding plot points are not quite as high as we hold for literature, cinema, or even television.

    Are you implying either that slavery was an institution that benefited the slave?

    Do you really think that my fellow progressives’ vision of the positive role a gov’t could play in society is in the distribution of free food, clothing and shelter?

    When you go in for a colonoscopy, how does the doctor manage to get the lens in there with your head in the way?

    If civil rights were left up to public opinion, as many conservatives want, there still would be slavery in several southern states, as many conservatives want.

    For free? Only if the work they did had no value. Unfortunately that’s the way a lot of business owners think these days.

    i’m guessing you consider ‘here comes honey boo boo’ a show with a standard of logic surrounding plot points.

    Really, Mr. Trudeau? Is this ALL you have left to comment on Pretending that ONE state failing to ratify the 13th amendment banning slavery, makes it any LESS the law of the land?? If so, then your ignorance of American constitutional law is truly stunning!

    Always remember, it was the GOP that got the Civil Rights Act passed! The Democrats in Congress opposed it. Then, as now, the Democrats wanted to keep people of color on the ‘liberal plantation,’ dependent on government benefits for the rest of their lives!

    Unfortunately slavery remains alive and well in the US today. Many young, female, migrants are smuggled into the US to work as domestic slaves in US households.

    And here I thought it was President Lyndon Johnson that got it passed. My goodness, here it’s common wisdom that getting the Civil Rights Act passed cost the Democrats their hold on the south.

    “Always remember”? I think you have forgotten lots and lots of stuff! It was the Republicans who freed the slaves, and that was 150 years ago. The Dems got the Civil Rights Act passed, in the lifetimes of many people alive today.
