But sadly, the caricature that the slavers were just selfish capitalists and the abolitionists were the only biblical Christians around is just not true. If anything, it was the other way around. Slavery was viewed as a ‘biblical’ doctrine, supported by the laws of God and human law, while the abolitionists were seen as dangerous liberals, preaching sedition and revolution.BEING BIBLICAL?

Jimmy Buffett has solved the age old riddle…
I prefer “don’t stop drinking.”
Jimmy Buffett is a con artist. doesn’t smoke, barely drinks. he wants to sell you the pirate lifestyle with overpriced beer, unnecessary tequila gadgets, and crowds full of Florida Republicans. He’ll charge you $99.95 for something that exists gratis out in the world.
for the record, the best hangover remedy is to never go to bed stone-drunk. stay up another hour and drink water. take an aspirin and go to bed. if you still feel like shit in the morning have a beer in the shower.
the shower beer works on several levels. the fizz calms the gurgles just like ginger ale, but the alcohol makes your liver switch from digesting the alcohol back to converting it to something digestible. The digesting is what makes you feel sick, as long as you eat something while the beer is in you it’ll mellow the effects. And the beer helps hydrate you which is always necessary in hangover recovery.
