Posted on 04/16/2011 6:27:28 AM PDT by Davy Buck
This is a perplexing question, as it relates to the WBTS. In some ways, yes. In others, no. I, like many of you, recently (and for the 3rd or 4th time), watched Ken Burns' PBS documentary, The Civil War. Even though I have several criticisms of the Burns' film, I still find it a fascinating piece of work and very educational. I've always thoroughly enjoyed watching the film, despite its shortcomings. One of the more moving parts of this film comes near the end, as shown below. Pay close attention at about 30 seconds in and listen as historian David McCullough narrates the moving "reenactment" of Pickett's charge at the 50th anniversary reunion at Gettysburg. I believe one can detect the emotion in McCullough's voice as it sounds like he almost chokes up in recounting the emotional event. I don't think he's acting. I don't mind admitting that I too was moved with emotion in hearing McCullough recount the story . . .

:)Your grandmother was a wonderful and very wise woman.
Why don’t you grow a pair and put what state you’re from in your profile...hider!
My guess is.... absolutely!
When are we just going to AMERICANS??
When all of the liberals, progressives and pinkos are gone, so it looks like we have a longgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg wait...... and where do most of them live? East and west coast with small pockets elsewhere but the South is red country for the most part and you KNOW IT!
I live in New Jersey. I’ve said that here before, where have you been?
Ah, Madame apparently you’ve no sense of humor. And don’t you ever again get it in to your head to tell me anything.
Yeah, you’ve checked every corner of the south to root out the pinkos. Uh huh. “Jerk””? Ok. Fine. That’s so fifth-grade of you.
Sure it does General Lee. It means the North beat your ass. And using communist Vietnam as an analogy is pretty piss poor. It wasn’t about communism in 1861. How would you Rebs be treating the rest of us if your side had won?
I would volunteer to contribute to the poll - but rockrr seems to have stopped responding, and wandered off somewhere...
j: Sure it does General Lee. It means the North beat your ass.
Just my opinion, but your 'might-makes-right' argument would need more than just a little work, to meet even "fifth-grade" standards, my friend!
(You might ask rockrr for input - he's around here somewhere... ;>)
Traveling, working, fishing, diving and living my life. NJ, that figures. A South hating Yankee.
Well he did do us the service of answering the question of whether or not he’s a fool.
hell we never know who they are really and enough have been exposed as fakirs or agtiprop coverts over the years so who really knows
they get caught lying who they are all the time and making up stuff
we knew who Walt was ...just took Fresno a long time to decide they'd had enough
nonsensical as well...teacher in Kansas..wasn't that it?
I mean so many have lied and lied over the years...not all to be fair but a lot
the trend for imposters on south bashing threads amongst NeoUnionists is highest there is on the forum
I guess your humor is very lacking because I don’t think insulting someone as you did to be funny.
And...lastly...don’t ever threaten me again.
i don't go running to post threads about things I dislike about non southerners
nor things I myself like about my own kind either really
these folks claims they want us to all be Americans
what they want is the right to insult us without consequence so they can preen with indignation over something they rarely know much about or they have their own skin in the game
but historically I have found less angry black guys-gals here and more just obnoxious brainwashed what culture war pitiful Woods(a denigration of the term) from homogeneous areas that know nothing about much except what they think is the right answer in politically correct terms...but for that they are on the wrong forum..try Kos or HuffPo...
I will let the words of President Davis speak for me:
"The withdrawal of a State from a league has no revolutionary or insurrectionary characteristic. The government of the State remains unchanged as to all internal affairs. It is only its external or confederate relations that are altered. To term this action of a Sovereign a 'rebellion' is a gross abuse of language." -- Jefferson Davis President CSA
Since Adams backs you up on this, he's trustworthy and admirable. If he disagreed with you about secession, you'd attack him as a typical elitist and racist Boston Brahmin (which he largely was, not a "Yankee" by the way -- at least not the way we use the word up heah).
There's no point in discussing with you: the way your spelling, grammar, and capitalization have improved over the past week, you'll have seen through all this neoconfederate nonsense by the end of this week, if not sooner.
