El Cid has pointed me in the direction of the Declaration of States Rights.
I don’t see anything in there that I really disagree with, and a lot that I do agree with. I would definitely encourage folks to at least read through it.
Regarding Alaska… since it was bought from Russia, should it opt for independence, some sort of restitution should be in order, which is not to say that Alaskans don’t have a right to self determination, but it is not of the same order of things as Hawaii, for example.
Whew, I’m really getting slack.
Anyway, El Cid has returned from his haitus. Welcome back
I just came across this column today, and wanted to “bounce” it off of you to see what you think. I feel annoyed to an extent that I’ve never heard of Confederate Memorial Day before.
I know my philosophy and convictions about the war have changed dramatically against what I was taught in school (in Yankee country, of course).
I think that there is more at work here than just political correctness run amuck. Confederate History is actively being pushed from our culture, and I think that it’s because the ideas of the Confederacy are dangerous to the powers that be (Slavery had nothing to do with the War)
Our borders are wide open, our money is very quickly becoming worthless, and power is becoming more and more concentrated in the hands of a few individuals in the federal government. The idea that people should be free to govern themselves is a dangerous idea in the face of globalism.
The path that we are now traveling was forged in 1861, when it was decided that it was not possible for the North and South to coexist without one forcing their will upon the other. Global politics has become nothing more than a contest for who can force their will upon everybody else. I much prefer the simpler rules of we’ll leave you along as long as you leave us alone, but if you dare antagonize us, you will face our full, unified, wrath.
The Home of the Rebel Alliance has been moved to http://reballiance.blogspot.com/
I really need to address Southern issues more often.
Today is General Robert E. Lee’s Birthday.
Happy Robert E. Lee Day.
More nonsense and hoopla over a Confederate Flag.
I’m so tired of hearing people blather about how bad the Confederate Flag is. The Confederate States didn’t do anything that the United States wasn’t doing (and in fact, in many instances, the Confederacy held itself to a far higher standard of conduct and morality than the United States did). The whole concept of Yankee moral superiority is inane.
It is so easy to program people to react in a certain way to certain stimuli. I’d like to see what happened if a bunch of people got together to protest stuffed pink bunny rabbits. I bet that inside of 3 years, we’d be hearing about how stuffed pink bunny rabbits are a symbol of oppression and must be banned!
Got some new Rebel Alliance members
INSIGHT on Freedom and PistolPackingMama
Arkie lays the smackdown on Shmuley Boteach
I quit reading Boteach’s stuff a long time ago because it seemed to me that he was only interested in dealing in matters of bread and circuses (meaning stuff that the ignorant masses eat up with a spoon).
Obama actually recognized that Lincoln wasn’t the great emancipator
“I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator,” Obama said. “As a law professor and civil rights lawyer and as an African-American, I am fully aware of his limited views on race. Anyone who actually reads the Emancipation Proclamation knows it was more a military document than a clarion call for justice.”
wow. I never expected to hear that from a democrat…
And in other news, H.K. Edgerton is on the march again
Good luck to him
