Chuck Baldwin -- Ramos And Compean Are Going Home

I'm so grateful that these innocent men are to be released, but they should have been pardoned. It is so disappointing that Bush allowed such a travesty to happen to these men & their families. Ramos & Compean have been in danger for their lives every day in prison. And just this month, the Ramos family home was burgled while they were out of town visiting Ramos in prison. The gas was left on, & it's miracle they weren't blown up when they returned.

I'm praying that these men will be royally compensated by someone with power to give them the perfect jobs.

Chuck Baldwin -- Ramos And Compean Are Going Home:

"If anyone has lost their reputation, it is Johnny Sutton and George W. Bush, his act of clemency notwithstanding.

Secondly, if the trial and conviction of Ramos and Compean is an example of a 'fair trial,' everyone in the country better pray they never have to go to trial. The truth is, if there ever was an example of a Kangaroo Court in these United States, it was the trial of Ramos and Compean."

Hopefully, they'll be out well before the bluebonnets bloom.

White slaves-- Muslim masters

Something for your history studies from 1530 to 1780:

LiveLeak.com - White slaves. Muslim masters.:

"A new study suggests that a million or more European Christians were enslaved by Muslims in North Africa between 1530 and 1780 a far greater number than had ever been estimated before."

"'One of the things that both the public and many scholars have tended to take as given is that slavery was always racial in nature that only blacks have been slaves. But that is not true, Davis said. 'We cannot think of slavery as something that only white people did to black people.'

During the time period Davis studied, it was religion and ethnicity, as much as race, that determined who became slaves."
