re: I blame The South for Confederate nescience - finestfirst79
Things are different. I think back then most everyone including military officers identified themselves as Georgians or Texans or whatever before Americans. Now, not so much. I'm an American and I would guess so are you, before any state affiliation....

re: I blame The South for Confederate nescience - finestfirst79
Ignoring the racist bit, my problem with the flag is that the South had their butts handed to them by the North. Why in the world do people in the South want to keep bringing this ass-whooping up? I've thought this since I was 6 or so, long before anybody had an issue with it. Let it go! ...

re: I blame The South for Confederate nescience - finestfirst79
This subject jumped the shark for me today. Today's local paper has this front page headline: "Park Service orders Confederate flag removed from VNMP, other parks". VNMP is the Vicksburg National Military Park. I'm all for SC removing it from their capitol and MS changing flags, but... holy moley...

As an old fart I've been called to jury duty many times. The closest I've come to serving was for a murder trial. Yay, says me. Inexplicably, I made the final 14. After several in-depth questions about all of our acquaintances that went on for several hours, a fellow juror raises her hand and says, ...
