Silver Lake daVine Calendar '09: February II

February 11
President, learning on the fly "Looking for Lincoln"
PBS - KCET - 9:00 PM Great? Racist? During the war between the states: he abolished right of habeous corpus, shut down newspapers, all protesters arrested --told racist jokes, usurped the Constitution --and fought to keep the states united, enabled black men to join the army and freed people chained to slave labor by color. When the war ended he wanted them to leave the country. My opinion: not 'split'/"two-faced." --In some newly-discovered letters he wrote to a confident, while running for office, he thought it best to appear he was for slavery, yet, secretly opposed.
Will be repeated: Sunday February 15
1:00 PM "Young Lincoln"
1:30 PM "Looking for Lincoln"

How did we get down here? "House of Cards"
CNBC - 9 pm /EST 8 pm & 12 am --I know what Greed Boys -mortgage vultures -rating agencies -insurance hogs -"respectable" banks did, how they did it, with 'help' from Congress, thug #43 and institutions, and if you want to know Whole Story, that took down American families -entire communities -pensions -jobs then world, it's worth getting to a TV with cable to see this expose.
