There is absolutely nothing more unattractive to behold -- nor more boring to endure -- than a southerner with an attitude trying to relive the Civil War in a fantasy setting.
Prove its a fantasy. I've done my research for this post...prove me wrong. Not just insults and unfounded rhetoric...I have sources for all of the claims I have posted.
No, it really isn't. Since the South was fighting for limited government, states rights, and high taxes...I would say it's still going on. It won't be called "South against North" this time, it's now "Conservative against Liberal".
Frankly, most northerners never even mention it -- unless provoked to do so by some southerner.
Isn't that interesting. Guess they don't want the truth to come out. No, you are right...they rarely want to discuss it.
Most southerners -- at least among the ones I know -- are content to let the contention between the north and south in the mid-19th century remain in the past -- where it belongs.
They haven't done their homework, either.
You come here to an Internet forum with that in-your-face avatar of yours -- and feign surprise and indignation at some of the reactions it provokes.
No, I am very used to that. Except in my social circles.
You then proceed to post these fanciful revisions of history complete with its tortured and twisted logic and rationalizations -- and feign surprise and indignation at some of the reactions it provokes.
What is surprising is that people don't care enough about their history to want to know the truths that have been tortured and twisted. If you have any interest in your country, it seems you would want to know the truth about it. Being blind teaches nothing. Why can't you do the research yourself just so you'll have it right. You seem to be a pretty intelligent person...why would you just dismiss issues that you haven't researched or checked out?
And you do this while arrogantly protesting superior ethics and morality for yourself -- and a longing for others to be more like you.
What is arrogant? I don't see anything in my post that is arrogant, especially toward anyone here.
Grown ups, intelligent grown ups always like to know the truth about what they are being told...I think that's pretty mature of myself to take the time to learn what really happened.
Stop adding to the turmoil of the world and instead try contributing to a bit of understanding and tolerance. Nor would it hurt to lighten up considerably and inject some humor and humanity into your diatribes from time to time.
I didn't start the turmoil...our government did and the Liberals who are out to change the culture we've always been so proud of in our country.
As I said to someone else just a few moments ago -- stop taking yourself so seriously. You really don't have what it takes to pull it off.
"Pull it off"? I don't know what you are referring to...I am very serious about this subject...but maybe you are right. I do need to loosen up...but getting attacked for my posts doesn't necessarily put me in a joking mood! But, here you go...I'll even use The South as a whipping post!
