Don't get me wrong. I live in the south, and I love the south...

Ladies and gentlemen, the textbook definition of a "Damnyankee."

The Northerners say we are dragging them down. LOL. Is this the Confederacy's revenge?

As Moses said, "Let my people go!"

I know that great beaches, women, football and lifestyles are to be had in the South.

GW will be reelected, thanks to the South.

Right! The world just hasn't been the same since the U.S. invented slavery.

I suppose that the fact that fellow black slaves were being sold to this country by other "fellow blacks", apparently united with the ones they were selling in the interests of black civil rights!

It's no wonder you're "looking for a publisher" you moron. And since you're such a champion for the anti-slavery movement, where are your efforts at halting modern slavery and the market selling little girls into a lifetime of whoredom/slavery tandem???

Bigot indeed. A self righteous dope!

Impressive display of a low IQ.

Every white guy in the south is a redneck? Even I didn't know that.

If it wasn't for white southerners, George W. Bush would have no chance of getting elected.

Weren't there a WHOLE lot more red states than blue ones when Altoast2000 lost?

What a maroon the author must be. He claims that Southern white men have been dragging down America from the beginning. Imagine the shame we have borne for having such backward rednecks as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe (all Virginians) and Andrew Jackson as five of our first seven presidents. It is not unlike the embarassment of having had Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and J.E.B. Stuart as military leaders.

Yet another self-hating, apologist handwringer. Oh, yeah, shocked, etc.!

Moose4, you forgot to tell this silly wank to make sure he has his ID in hand because the border patrol at the Peace Bridge on the Canadian side likes to keep it moving right along. We don't need him here in the Northeast, we've got all the crybabies we can handle!

The most racist, backwards state I've ever experienced is Wisconsin. Although it's claimed to be a liberal thinkfest in Madison and they are in posession of a real enlightenment on human behavior the way it aughta be, nothing could be further from the truth. They are racist lunatics who feel that if they can slowly bleed white guilt on every issue around the globe, it will somehow fill their empty souls. It's freaky.

Your right. The Union break up was all about money. How well could the "union" function without the southern states tax and spending base?

As a Northern male, Let me comment if you will.

Who is this bigoted nitwit? Southern males have always been dragging this country down? You mean like Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry?

Of course there is Jimmy Carter....

Does any more need to be said?

There is a football commentator on WTVN radio (Munch Bishop) on Ohio State game days. He is proud of his leftist political views. Yet he will smugly throw slurs at those he disagrees with as though his views are simply common sense.

Yesterday, as OSU prepared to face North Carolina State, he opened his show with this statement amongst a few others:
"I hope the Hatfields and McCoys have put their muskets away."
"I question the intelligence of anyone south of the Mason-Dixon line."
"I wonder why it took the north 4 years to win the Civil War."

I know that controversy sells in broadcasting, but bigotry toward rural, southern, Appalachian heritage goes on unchecked. Of course when a person of this culture may come unglued and punch one of these guys' lights out, they say their point is proven. But they'll never raise a peep while Al Franken and union goons go about, attacking innocent people.

I thought it was ridiculous that Viet Nam was the center piece of the campaign, now this fool wants to take it back to the 1800s. Guess he figures the President is responsible for slavery too.

The North had the Industrial wherewithall and the transportation methods sewn up. The South had the raw materials, but no way to ship or market them without going through the North. This was the leading cause for secession. The North took advantage of the South's lack of industrialzation.I learned this last semester in my History 1700 class. This article is just another example of liberals rewriting history to match their own sordid agenda..

Crank theory on tax cuts

Dear Editor:

I live in Augusta, Ga., and the Augusta Chronicle recently ran one of your editorials entitled "Tax Cuts Warranted." In your editorial, you claimed that under Reagan, tax cuts boosted tax revenues. This is completely false. Here are the statistics from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget's annual historical tables (1987):

Year Tax Collections in Constant (adjusted for inflation) 1987 dollars

1981 $766.6 billion

1982 $738.2 billion Reagan's tax cuts go in effect here.

1983 $684.3 billion Revenue from corporate income tax fell so drastically that Reagan agreed to a corporate

tax hike here. Remember his "revenue enhancement" as a euphemism for a tax increase?

1984 $730.4 billion

1985 $776.1 billion

It took five years for the tax collections to equal what they were before Reagan cut taxes, and this is when the tax revenue base is naturally increasing with the increase in the GDP which occurs every year, unless there is a recession. Economists are in near unanimous agreement that supply-side theory has been proven false. In fact, there is not a single supply-side wing in any college economics department in the United States.

It's a crank theory, popular with politicians who think they can promise us the moon and the stars.

Mark Gelbart,

Augusta, Ga.

Nothing like enjoying the southern morning on your front porch! I do resent you didn't get my written permission before taking my photo. I hate having my photo taken without a chance to comb my hair first.

When they seceded, THAT was when the civil war became primarily about slavery.

While slavery may have been the main, but not the only, underlying cause of the war, the North's objective for the first couple of years was preservation of the Union, not ending slavery. Here is a resolution of the US House of Representatives to that effect from July 22, 1861:

Resolved by the House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States, That the present deplorable civil war has been forced upon the country by the disunionists of the Southern States now in revolt against the constitutional Government, and in arms around the capitol; that in this national emergency, Congress, banishing all feelings of mere passion or resentment, will recollect only its duty to the whole country; that this war is not waged upon our part in any spirit of oppression, nor for any purpose of conquest or subjugation, nor purpose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of those States; but to defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution, and to preserve the Union, with all the dignity, equality, and rights of the several States, unimpaired; and that as soon as these objects are accomplished the war ought to cease.

The Senate passed a resolution with substantially the same wording on July 25, 1861.

I've written a novel entitled Talk Radio. I'm still looking for a publisher.

Really??? I'm surprised. Usually publishers JUMP at this kind of revisionist "history" agenda-dumping.

The writer is correct; I hate the white, southern politicians too. Let’s talk about the last two in office that fit that description. He lied to the American people, lied under oath, was drunk and fell hurting his knee while military pilots were in a holding pattern waiting for his order to attack or abort (never received the order because he was too drunk to give it (see Dereliction of Duty: The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Endangered America's Long-Term National Security by Robert Patterson)).
Once he stood in the hanger of 13 dead American Air force personnel and promised revenge to their death, but never even made a single threat to the known perpetrators of the attack. Then skipping ahead until he finally left office, he backed up a van and looted the treasures of the Whitehouse from the American people(see Rewriting History by Dick Morris).
That’s me just warming up, and not even talking about his wife.

Hey, you biased, bigoted, prejudiced, nit-wit. Do you not have any clue how cliched, hackneyed and trite you are as an author.

Your sophomoric prose deserves no better audience than the one you'll find at your local Barnes and Noble "Open Mic" night.

You need to spend a little more time at "Starbucks" honing your skill...but in the meantime don't give up your day job.
