Mikie, you need to contribute original thoughts about topics that are of interest to you.You and Delores from the forest tend to react to what I initiate.Perserverating about moral bankruptcy of 1-20 centuries ago serves no purpose, so far as I can see, except to make cheap pronouncements criticizing the political/social foes of our day. Well, seems that the results (similar to the man on the commercial who thought he had a German heritage) have been totally discounted.What I hear in today's "honest discussions" is mostly smug, sanctimonious, self-righteous, self-satisfied, self-congratulatory, intellectually dishonest claptrap . Only about 15% of Fred's DNA can be attributed to ancestors from the Callaways and Ballards lines.You spew the progressive liberal claptrap from the internet to try to make yourself look like a champion of the berieved. Mike, do you believe that I am making a generaliztioon that all descendants of rebel soldiers are racist, then you need to stop. I don't believe that you and Delores from the forest are members of the KKK or any other hate group.
Mike why do you think that I am defensive and shame others?No you just parrot cliches and forment conflict to emphasize your liberal misguided misinformed beliefs. Fred- My reference to boiling over was to the removal of statues and your need to inflame racial hatred by implication. Fred, What in the world does Col Jennifer have to do with anything.People like you are trying to shame amyone who disagrees with them by claimin they are Racists. Folks I am sorry I should consider the source and let this go but things are begining to boil over. I appreciate your trying to help me be a better progressive, but pretty much have my personal and professional life where I want it to be. It is a travesty to destroy and otherwise remove monuments erected to notables on both sides of the conflict. Just because some may be offended is of little justification I am offended by liberal snow flakes too weak to accept the reality of the past but I cannot do anything about it.Folks when I go to a store, I tell the clerk to put the item in a poke. During the civil war, Hamilton County was invaded by John Hunt Morgan of Lexington Kentucky. Prior to his invasion of Hamilton County, he and his men stole the county treasury at Versailles.In Hamilton County they stole food, horses, clothing, firearms and ammunition.
