    Umm, Anthony Johnson wasn't the first slaveowner. The link makes that clear, but I don't expect the rightwingers to be honest about that fact.

    Early in 1620, Johnson was captured by slave traders in his native land of Angola and sold to a merchant belonging to the Virginia Company.[1] He arrived in Virginia in 1621 aboard the James. At this time he was known in the records as "Antonio, a Negro".[2] Johnson was sold to a white planter named Bennet to work on his Virginia tobacco farm.

    Irrelevant. You got your answer.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sand flies are not worth it....Most of the money he sent went from one hand, to another hand, to the hands of Islamic extreamist. Why do you think they are still today un-beaten. It is known that our troops have and are being killed with American made arms.

    Slavery was officially established in Virginia in 1654, when Anthony Johnson convinced a court that his servant (also a black man), John Casor, was his for life. Johnson himself had been brought to Virginia some years earlier as an indentured servant (a contracted person who must work from five to seven years for no wages in exchange for food and shelter before being freed) but he saved enough money to buy out the remainder of his contract and that of his wife. The court ruled in Johnson’s favor, and the first state-recognized slave existed in Virginia.
    It pays to read the entire article.

    But it was OK when bush* and the republicans did it

    The dishonesty of the rightwing never ends.

    Reagan sent Stingers to the Iranian terrorists, and the rightwing never complained. bush* sent trillions to islamic nations, and the rightwing never complained.

    It's only wrong when a dem president does it.

    Obama in just 3 years has spent and given away more U.S. dollars, than the past 5 president combined.

    Here's a teacher's guide to the Anthony Johnson story. Notice anything missing?

    Is this a current Teachers Guide? And if you don't mind --- just tell me the State in which it's used?
