re: 'Take 'Em Down NOLA' wants more change - SpqrTiger on 5/26/17 at 1:33 pm
Exactly. If someone can explain to me the ethical difference between a slaver who fought for the Confederacy and a slaver who founded our country, then please, do. But I'm going to make the argument short and easy for you. If the commonality is slavery, then the only justification for taking...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

People miss the point so bad when it comes to this revisionist history nonsense. The self-righteous anti-monument crowd should be glad that there was a Confederacy, because it gives them a convenient scapegoat on which to hang the yoke of slavery guilt. The Confederacy lasted 4 years, yet for mor...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Would a politician body slamming a reporter make you more or less likely to vote for them? - SpqrTiger on 5/25/17 at 6:54 am
Less. A politician should be smart enough and resourceful enough to have someone else do his ass-kicking for him. Leaders should have, you know, basic leadership traits. If a politician has to perform criminal assaults with his own hands, then that's pretty much a disqualifier in my opinion. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
