    history

    Barbera-

    My reading of the history of Rome  did not suggest they were racist.  They were definitely snobby about people who weren’t Roman, but given how just about anyone could become a citizen (including, and especially, ex-slaves), and becoming a citizen got easier and easier as time passed, race wasn’t a thing for them.  The dividing line was Roman/Not-Roman (slash barbarian), rather than division across some racial line.

    That’s the conclusion drawn by historians I follow anyway.

    I’m sure if that tax rate represents the true rate

    I’m not sure that tax rate in the yearly progression video actually represents what most top income earners actually paid in taxes.  An extreme few paid 70% in taxes.  By and large most top earners used all sorts of tax write-offs which negated most of the theoretical tax rate.

    Define “success”

    I’m thrilled there was no false flag violence or violence between protesters and left wing counter- protesters. The MSM will be busy continuing to spin the rally as an extremist event, but nothing that could’ve happened would’ve prevented that. They’re being paid to push a narrative, not report the news. Governor Blackface Babykiller and the Democrats in the legislature already knew when they started pushing their new people-control measures that there was massive opposition outside of their geographically small enclaves. If there is to be any more “success,” which I doubt, then maybe the legislators will back down after seeing that their neighbors aren’t going to roll over and play dead like the voters in NJ, CA, MD, CT and other states have. That would be a reasonable outcome, but I’m not optimistic enough to hope for reasonableness.

    I have $5 that says the agitator in this video is a VA State Trooper.

    Richmond was a success?

    This event has had almost no media coverage in my part of the world (we’ve been fighting — real — fires). To judge by this comment stream, it went well.

    Do you PPers, not the MSM, think it proved its point?

    Friend is on bus on way home from Richmond

    Very happy to have my friend on the bus and on his way home to Charlottesville.  He reports:

    2:06 PM

    Bus is rolling home. Great experience! Pics later.

    Police were very friendly. Some were wearing the orange “Guns save lives” stickers from RRPC [Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club–the local shooting range in Charlottesville].

    Surprised to see so many rifles including AR types.  One guy had an M1 Garand 308 like I was issued during Vietnam with bayonet attached, very imposing!

    Best info I have so far is:  No shots fired,  no fights,  no reports of arrests.

    Better than your usual county fair.

    Peak Prosperity for 3 people

     

    Per the University of Massachusetts – 50% of seniors living alone are financially insecure!

    Peak Prosperity -oh ah for who –  3 individuals in the US own as much as the entire bottom half.
