Thank you, Colonel, please continue the fight, because the education your web site brings is very important. God bless!

Bill H

Oh, what a relief. One of the very few contacts with sanity, and the one most robust. Thank you.

Harry Hobbes

Thank you Colonel for providing this excellent forum for insight...

Praise be. I shall make a donation as an offering to whatever mysterious powers keep you at it, Sir.

If trolls using your email address (as opposed to the comment facility) are a problem, then I'd recommend a simple anti spam measure: Change your email address and replace the blog's "Email Me" link with a form linked to the new address. The form allows you to receive email without the sender knowing your address and more importantly, the address isn't exposed on the web at all. Typepad have a tutorial on this, if you are interested. The form need only have a subject & content section. A reply address section can be included, if you wish.

Good news! I am wondering if a bibliography can be placed on the website of books by conscientious authors about the War Between the States and the political position of the Confederacy, since overt attempts to censor history are plainly visible now. For example, I think Charles Adams has done writing especially on the taxation issues at the time. Lord Acton (John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton) of Britain wrote an essay about American federalism and the Civil War, and perhaps had corresponded with Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Thank you very much, Colonel. The committee under your curation is one of the few remaining sources of critical thinking.

It heartens me to see it. Now is the time for great men to rise, not retreat.

Thank you Sir.

Your blog is an inestimable service and resource, and speaks nowhere so strongly as in its defense of freedom as embodied in the 1st amendment of the US Constitution. Never so much in need. To wit see:

"The American Press is Destroying Itself," here:

https://taibbi.substack.com/p/the-news-media-is-destroying-itself?

Especially the hypocrisy evident on Sen Tom Cotton's recent Op-Ed in the Times.

On a different note, IMO Trump hit one far out of the park today with his speech to the 2020 graduating class of West Point. There were impossible to miss but on the whole tasteful, I suppose, rumbling undercurrents expressed in the Chaplain's opening remarks and student song introductions, but he rose marvelously to the occasion.

Thank you for keeping your wondrous work.

Thank you. I am sometimes annoyed by opinions expressed here (and I sometimes annoy others), but I learn a lot by reading SST. Both from the opinions and from forms of expertise not otherwise very available to me.

Pacifica Advocate

Thank you, Colonel.

I was shocked by the short-sighted decision you made. My first conclusion was that you must have made such a decision whilst your faculties were obscured by drink--

Because I honestly could not imagine a reality where you would think your blog was an inconsequential part of history.

And, after that, I could also not imagine a world where you considered history inconsequential.

With that said, this "Fred", "Larry", and "Eric Newman" shit should probably just be tucked away. You have better friends than them.

Love --

Thank you. This blog is invaluable.

Colonel, I completely understand your vexation with current conditions. Thank you for maintaining this site as a beacon of sanity.

Where is Sulla when you need him?

Deap

Thanks, when it was down yesterday I realized how much I was going to miss it. But have no idea what flack is involved maintaining it. Thanks again. I have no other window of sanity. The walls in fact are closing in on anyone outside the mainstream opinion who still believes in personal responsibility for their own outcomes. The Silent Majority needs and wants this continuing lifeline. that you provide. You are performing Good Works.

Deap

Am I the only one who cannot get a typepad account? Every time I try to register and they say are sending send me a code password to complete the registration, it never shows up in my email.

Therefore, I always have to log on with an accepted yahoo email account. If one needs in the future to sign up for SST only with typepad, I will never be able to get back on. My adieus to all if this becomes the case.

Thanks for staying. Don't agree with everything I read here but I value and very much appreciate the insight and perspective that you and the committee provide. I'm a long time reader who's only commented a couple of times in 10 (?) years. Stay safe.

Thank you, SWMBO.

Xi wrote in Qiushi, the influential publication of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.
“We should stay alert to the ubiquitous factors that could weaken our Party’s pioneering nature and contaminate our Party’s purity,” he said. “If we don’t take strict precautions and correct them in time . . . small problems will grow into big ones,

Thank you for your service. Be well!

Thank you Col. Lang, an Island of sanity indeed. I note that you are taking no small risk in running this in the current climate.

Keith Harbaugh

Um, did a certain obviously controversial post by a guest author disappear? If so, I can certainly understand why.

De Oppresso Liber. Actually, I do it for the money.

Well, pilgrim, faint praise is better than none. Reminds me of the old Willie Nelson cowboy movie "Barbarosa" in which his wife's large Mexican hacendado family are conducting a lethal vendetta against him (a Texas cracker) for the crime of having dared to marry her without permission of her father, the Don, and all he will say about them is that he has a great relationship with the Zavala family. A great flic BTW.
