    I always was a crappy speller. Oh well I figure people on here can figure out what I mean well enough, after all debating requires a modicum of intelligence.

    I think we are officially off the reservation on this thread. I believe it is about Joe Sixpack vs. Academia. Probalbly might want get back on the road, or not.

That's not so bad, but so long as you are in tune with the historiography of slavery and can grasp the fundamental differences between the existence of a slave and a citizen of the United States in the 21st century. You haven't discussed the same sources I had, at all, let alone developed a grasp of slavery in any sense. You'd get failing marks in any history department for this nonsense you keep peddling.

    The man that was just championed for his knowledge has predictably no counter and worse yet he somehow thinks that because its 21 century and we the US that it can't be slavery. Pathetic. We are done here it seems.

    Btw, I did say there was a difference between what you are talking about and what I'm talking about. Many times in fact. I see nothing from you to make me change my mind that its still slavery though.

    Yeah, because I have better things to do with my time and am wrapping it up. I merely suggest you actually read the important works before you start spouting off nonsense and telling the entire historical community that they are full of it.

    For someone that was apparently offended by my comments you sure didn't fight very hard against them. You would think someone so offended would take more effort to prove me wrong. You shouldn't really start things you aren't even willing to fight for.

    Your definition of slavery is based in your political ideology not in any way historical. Landowners, are not in anyway considered slaves. That cannot not in anyway to be considered extreme. Your definition, however, is.

    I got the nickname Shamrock for my sometimes incredible luck. So I incorporated it into my love of shoes along with "Walking On Sunshine".
