re: Wife and I are going to have a son. Need advice from parenting gurus of the OT. - windshieldman
[quote]I completely understand why you think that but you're wrong. It may be faster at first but if you put some more work into it and are consistent, non-physical methods stop them before they even get there. I've learned the hard way from experience. And I fought it for awhile. I get why most...

re: Wife and I are going to have a son. Need advice from parenting gurus of the OT. - windshieldman
Boys are rough as toddlers. Many times boys tend to be more colicky infants than girls and take longer to potty train also, in general. Boys will tear up your shite. I've got 2 boys and 2 girls. I've never had to spank the girls, I've damn near broken my hand on my boys though. They get fun around 5...

re: Robert E. Lee has been misrepresented by regressive "historians" - windshieldman
[quote]The southerners definitely were ready to toss our nation of beloved memories so they could continue to get their bread from the sweat of other men's faces. [/quote] You should read some of the many diaries from the time, and newspaper clippings. There was much hatred towards the slave owne...

re: Robert E. Lee has been misrepresented by regressive "historians" - windshieldman
[quote]I have a Master's in this subject. I believe I have done quite a bit of reading on the causes of the Civil War over the years. The arguments you speak of weren't floated about until 10-20 years after the fact. The South seceded over slavery. There can be no debate or argument over this fa...

[quote]That isn't your only recourse. You could also stand behind cover and shoot after being fired upon as the Confederates did at Fredericksburg and against Grant in the Overland Campaign. That is what we call a defensive posture.[/quote] When your goal is to defend Virginia. You defend it by d...

[quote]If you are attacking you are on the offensive. [/quote] Goodness, I figured common sense would have prevailed when I made my point earlier. If someone breaks into your house you would attack them to defend your home. Overall, it a defensive tactic to defend your home. The guy breaking in...

re: Robert E. Lee has been misrepresented by regressive "historians" - windshieldman
[quote]You're welcome because my response had nothing to do with you being glad the north won. I was merely replying to your assertion that no one ever wins the argument. This is not true. Anyone who actually reads the literature that was being written in the South in the weeks after Lincoln's elect...

[quote]But they were still offensive operations[/quote] Yes, offensive operations for a defensive strategy. They were defending Virginia, so they attempt to drive the north out of Virginia in an offensive operation with the overall goal to DEFEND Virginia. ...

[quote]He had been on the offensive since he took command in June 1862.

[quote]People win. The defeated merely think they have won. The states which seceded prior to Fort Sumter, with the possible exception of Texas, seceded primarily to protect the institution of slavery.

re: Robert E. Lee has been misrepresented by regressive "historians" - windshieldman
I'll just say I never care for defending the Confederate flag. I've had many more ancestors and friends fight under the American flag. I don't get caught up in ancestors that fought for 4 damn years in a country that has been in existence for approximately 240 years. I do hate to see Lee's statue co...

re: Robert E. Lee has been misrepresented by regressive "historians" - windshieldman
[quote]This is incorrect. His main goal until the post-Gettysburg period was to destroy the Union army in a single battle of decision and dictate terms to Lincoln in the Oval Office.[/quote] Key word is post Gettysburg. Prior to that he planned on staying MOSTLY defensive. He messed up by going i...

re: Robert E. Lee has been misrepresented by regressive "historians" - windshieldman
[quote]Lee was just a good enough general to cause a blood bath every time. Lee had as little success outside Virginia as various federal generals had within it. He is vastly overrated. After he wrecked his own army for offensive operations, he operated primarily on the defensive in an era when defe...
