re: On this day in 1866, Ulysses S. Grant became the first 4-star general in U.S. Army history - AUsteriskPride
[quote]Calling him an idiot is internet hyperbole, but seriously, frick him. He had a path to victory and chose the wrong path.[/quote] I honestly don't know if he wanted the path to victory. He was always torn on state rights and the conservation of the union through Constitutional means. ...

re: City vs Country Living - AUsteriskPride
Country living for sure. I don't want to be stacked on top of people, much more autonomy living on a piece of land,have the ability to hear nothing but crickets chirping, can grow my own food, almost always lower taxes, and much less likely to be the victim of violent crime. Not a fan of eating ...

re: If Confederate generals were traitors, so was George Washington - AUsteriskPride

Most didn't fight for the Confederacy over their love of slavery as over 95% didn't own any, it was their love for a Republic and s...

re: Will you boycott NCAA sports when they follow suit with BLM stuff - AUsteriskPride

re: What is the "cheapest" thing you have done? - AUsteriskPride
Worked at my uncle's BBQ joint in high school with several friends. It was on a city line, so I got to co-mingle with girls at the other school, very much a profit. By far the lowest paying job I ever had, but by far the best. There were a lot of "perks" in that job....
