What it is about South Carolina....


Throughout American History, this state produces hot-headed braggarts that (for 95% of the time-excluding Andrew Jackson) seem to be unable to back up their talk with action....

Clemson fans...keep a little historical fact in mind...the first president of LSU was named Sherman...

don't think I have to say anything else....

Unable to back up our talk? What the frick does that even mean?

We fought off one of the first full-scale British assaults with a makeshift log fort.

John C. Calhoun went head to head with Jackson when everyone else was too pussy to do so.

We took the federally occupied Fort Sumter after firing the first shot of the civil war upon the Star of the West (Lonnie Utah can tell you it was his Citadel cadets that did so).

Preston Brooks beat down Charles Sumner on the senate floor.

WTF have we not backed anything up?

Not every state can be as proficient in murders as Louisiana.

Yeah SC is sort of a major part the US won the Revolutionary War. Since then forget it.

A Citadel Cadet on the gun crew that fired on the Star of the West (some of the first shots of the Civil war) was a direct relative of mine...

You should also ask Mr. Utah why the Citadel was founded. It is a lot like the Southern Baptist Church.

I believe the topic was South Carolina not backing up their talk.

Don't let the point fly too high over your head.

I understand that it seems a bit barbaric...but the era we're talking about is on the fringe of when dueling was still a common mode of preserving one's honor.

Don't let that context nonsense ruin your bias, though.

Nikki Haley telling the National Labor Relations Board to go frick themselves has endeared the entire state of South Carolina to my heart.

SC is 10 times better than LA. But USC is crap and Clemson, although pretty, has an inflated sense of its importance.

Hmmmm...I wonder who was one of the Radical Republicans in charge of Reconstruction. None other than Charles Sumner. The South is still paying for that beatdown on the Senate floor.
