Conan O’Brien pays a visit Setting the record straight I was traveling and missed this great story, but better late then never. Conan O’Brien learns some Haitian history and then visits the country and talks to the people with humor, intelligence, and kindness. The fact is the people of Haiti defeated Napoleon’s army and liberated themselves from France and abolished slavery not long after the US won its revolution. In contrast, it took the US nearly 100 years after its Declaration of Independence to abolish slavery. By depriving France of profits from the slave and sugar trade in Haiti,...Read More

150,000 immigrants and citizens imprisoned No charges, no trial, no due process There’s legitimate concern about plans for mass internment in the US based on race, religion, or politics.

“Remember the Maine” A fraud that led to war No one reading this is old enough to remember the “Remember the Maine” campaign. It started with a spectacular explosion in Havana harbor and the sinking of the USS Maine. It was blamed on “bad guys” who the US conveniently already had detailed plans of attacking.
