Known as the “Texas Troubles,” it led to slave [...]

Saturday, August 14, 2010 That's what this ex-supporter said after defending his local Tea Party: I have attended eight meetings of the Kingston/Rhinebeck Tea Party near my home town as well as one or two in my home town of Olive, New York.

Fred Reed was alive and on the move in those days, and knows the answer: In today’s world of over-policing by militarized hostile cops, of metal-detectors and police in schools and compulsory anger-management classes and enforced ingestion of Ritalin or Prozac, King George sounds, well, [...]
