  • Confederate statues
  • Yep.
    The mayor of Birmingham has decided to remove another one.
    Amusing part is that most Confederates who fought in the war did NOT own slaves.

    The reason most Confederates fought in the war was due to not needing the north telling them how to run their affairs. Can you say "Big Brother"?

    Confederates statues were more of a tribute to the south and the independent way of thinking and not needing "Big Brother".

    Amusing the way things change.
    PS. (Big Brother) Just keep sending the checks guys.

  • Yep, all true. Deep in the pines in ole Nawth Carolina they say the Civil War aint over, its just half time. I'm no historian however I understand Ole Abe did not free the slaves in the North, only the South. Real reason was taxes and overbearing big government IMHO. Two of my G Grandfathers were in the conflict. One lost an eye and spent some time in Elmira NY as a POW and made it home. brownsmule in NC

  • Slaves were used by and large by the plantation owners because the "Nawtheners" wanted cheap tobacco etc. Can you say "Not willing to page a decent price?"
    So cheap prices meant cheap labor.
    The amazing part is the slavers who went to Africa to get the cheap labor were lead by other Africans to where the cheap labor could be found in whatever villages, etc.
    You think whitey had a clue where to go?
    I dare say they were led by other Africans to find more Africans and yet it is whiteys fault.
    I seem to remember a few years ago, an offer was made to pay for return passage to Africa. Last I heard, no takers.
    Now the black Americans just desire financial compensation.
    Here's your compensation, a boat ticket. You came by boat, you can return by the same conveyance.
    Yeah. I know. politically IN-correct!
    Truth usually is. . .
    Just tear down another statue rather than examine a problem from both sides.
    I dare say the typical Southern Democrat will welcome Big Brother today.

    Dear Big Brother, Just keep sending the checks.
