    Wow, did you know that the south threatened to ally with Cuba and Russia if they couldn't expand slavery into the north and all of the new territories? See, you learn something new everyday?
    I saw it only a few posts above. Post the same thing too many times and it becomes spam.

    Look beyond your community, your country. If you can, travel overseas a bit, and perhaps you'll learn what I did - that (after allowing for cultural mores and traditions and education) people really are the same all over the world. They really are. Remember that.
    They won't let me go overseas. They are the dominant race but not the majority.

    Being a veteran doesn't give you some special monopoly on the Truth.

    I didn't post the same thing.

    You're not even reading.

    You have exposed yourself as someone who just scrolls over information that might upset her applecart

    You don't want to learn.

    If it wasn't from your grandpapa -- it doesn't count. We know.

    Or it's Yankee's talk. -- Even when shown a Robert E. Lee quote, (before you knew it was him) you said he couldn't have been from the South.

    When shown it was from your beloved General -- You just doubled down on the dumbing down.

    Over 8 years of dealing with you, thousands of posts - is pretty convincing evidence - you're not here to learn.

    Your purpose is to vindicate your gee-papa - and the 100 year old vet in the rebel nursing home he met in the 1930's. The vet who spent most of his time in the war -- in a Union prison.

    Well he did get it straight from the horse's mouth. Also don't post a single quote unless you intend to post it in context.

    He was mentally ill or just plain brainwashed by someone or something. That much became obvious when reading the book American Terrorist.

    We've been through this.

    You ever care to hear things from "the horses mouth" of the slaves?
