re: Why did Northern men volunteer to fight in the Union Army? - Bamapossum on 6/24/17 at 5:55 pm
I could spend a long time on this post, but let me just begin with one caveat: One cannot truly view events from 150 years ago with a modern mindset. 1. War in the 19th Century was greatly romanticized. It was a coming of age rite that separated real men from cowards and shirkers. Both sides cons...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Muslim poll responses "Religion of peace" (Pew research) - Bamapossum on 6/5/17 at 12:23 am
Here's why this is technically NOT propaganda. Propaganda is designed by or for the messenger in order to benefit the messenger. PEW research, to my knowledge, has nothing to gain from the dissemination of this information. They are not fomenting a cause or promoting a product. They are not known...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: All you fricktards who blame the Baby Boomer Generation - Bamapossum on 4/8/17 at 8:20 am
The real problem here is thinking you can just blame a generation for reacting to the climate they were raised in. The "Greatest Generation" did not choose to live through the Great Depression and WWII. They did not choose to create the world's greatest economy. They did what they had to do. They...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Thanks Dr. Pimp, Since you were so helpful with my question, my friend...Kevin...has a question but does not have an account, so I thought I would ask for him. A few nights ago, Kevin was watching from a closet while his female life partner was getting railed by a well-endowed, African-Americ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: First annual Trump Derangement Syndrome Online Therapy session starts now - Bamapossum on 3/18/17 at 2:25 pm
Dr. Pimp, I read on Slate that Trump is a racist, homophobic, xenophobic, transgender-hating meany. Like, a serious poo-head and stuff. I also read on HuffPo that he kills baby seals and uses their blood for his special hair tonic. Should I even get up tomorrow and try to attend my Lesbian s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: What was the purpose of dropping the atomic bombs in Japan? - Bamapossum on 2/26/17 at 10:05 am
Why do people feel a need to try and breed repressed feelings of guilt over things that were out of the control of basically everyone alive today? We can learn nothing from this discussion. None of us here can remotely determine what we would have done in this situation. What is the ulterior moti...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Do people try to guess what Southern state you're from based on your accent - Bamapossum on 1/10/17 at 7:41 pm
I used to teach at a private military academy. We had a fairly significant number of kids from Louisiana. That Brooklyn-like accent out of N.O. caught me by surprise at first. Both of the kids I taught that had it were the kids of lawyers...Tulane alumni as well....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Gee, I don't know. Maybe I felt like asking a simple question on an OT board.

re: What is the purpose of burial in today's times? - Bamapossum on 12/30/16 at 11:38 pm
Modern burial practices evolved from earlier burial practices with a lot of help from the funeral industry. Looking back over the course of American history, the modern burial rites started to really catch on in the early 20th Century. People used to simply wash, clothe, and bury their own, usual...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The pro-life and death penalty are not really contradictions. Conservatives view death as a judicial punishment for a capital crime; whereas, abortion is the killing of the innocent.
