I listen to Too Jewish every Sunday while driving to church, that’s right to church. I met my wife of 38 years in Israel and love Haaretz. Politicaly I am to the right of Rabbi Cohon but I really enjoy him and his radio show. Mazal tov, Pastor Gene Chewning.
I thank you for all that you are doing for our Vets.
Thank you for the gewat feature.
Good, : ) There were the Dixiecrats, George Wallace & KKK Byrd and some Republicans against Civil Rights. Like I said there were (and are) some good and some bad in both parties. I do want to thank you for you stand for these rights.
Pres. Johnson signed the Civil rights act into law July 2, 1964. The house of Representatives passed the bill - 289 to 124 80% Republican and 63% Democrats voted yes. The Senate voted 73 to 27 with 21 Democrats and only 6 Republicans voting no. KKK member Sen. Byrd filibustered the bill for 14 hours. Richard Nixon, presidential candidate Barry Goldwater and Republican Martin Luther King lobbied for the bill. As you can see your article is misleading in that it indicates that the Democrats were in favor of civil rights Republicans against. There are good and bad in both parties.
I am looking foward to Jonathan implementing his 180 day plan. I believe that our new mayor is a good man and has potential of being a very good leader for the Old Pueblo.
