    We've been through this.

    You ever care to hear things from "the horses mouth" of the slaves?
    you mean 1920's. Granddaddy graduated from Benedictine in 1929. In fact it is believed by the school that he was the longest surviving member of his class when he passed away in 2005 at the age of 94. I'm sure granddaddy talked to other vets there also but William Goode was the one he talked the most about to me. And sure if any of the slaves wrote a book I would likely read it.

    You were lied to about what types of WMDs Saddam had. Repeatedly. Falsified evidence was presented on multiple instances.

    This is also untrue, France and Germany both had their own intelligence agencies that knew our claim was completely bogus.

    Germany even told us that our source, "curveball," was unreliable.

    Yet they went with us and when they pulled out we got upset. Remember the Freedom fries deal?

    Well it doesn't really matter if they thought they were right. I'm sure Fred Phelps thought he was right, too.

    It's up to God who is right. He judges who gets in. Not you, and certainly not those deeply religious Confederate leaders.

    The states left the federal union politically. This made them completely "out" for purposes of the tenth amendment. There is no obligation to go anywhere physically.
