    Its Alice in Wonderland like of Virginia says that slavery was just One reason for for the civil war. In fact he never mentions it until hes called out. Gee i thought that was all about. In fact i thought the South seceded when Abe Lincoln and the Republicans won the election

    Virginia brings back Confederate History Month - The Trentonian News: Serving Trenton and surrounding communities. (trentonian.com)


    McDonnell said slavery was not the lone issue contested in the war that ended with Gen. Robert E. Lee's surrender in 1865 at Appomattox Court House, about 75 miles west of Richmond.

    "There were any number of aspects to that conflict between ,the states. Obviously it involved slavery, it involved other issues, but I focused on the ones that I thought were most significant for Virginia" McDonnell said.

    Having grown up in the greaser / redneck car era ... that brings back memories. Even here in the northeast the confederate emblem on a grease machine was a good look. We were totally ignorant of what confederacy represented ... we were enamored with the look and it looked right. It looked better than the union flag for some reason.

    I grew up in the south (Virginia actually), but I don't get the confederacy stuff. I'm all for state's rights as outlined in the constitution, but the stars and bars lost their fight. The south gets Chick Fil-A, Krispy Kreme, cheap tabacky, gun rights, and longer summers. That's a fair shake, eh?

    In any case, with the possible exception of Virginia Beach, I can't think of one Virginia city that's truly southern in culture anyway. It's a gateway, swing-voting state now. The confederacy lost that one too.

    They've also lost North Carolina and Florida. Really "The South" is now just little more than South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

    And....the iceman is prolly THE most non-partisan member we have!

    Another point regarding the confederat flag/symbol...during the late 70's/early 80's, it was associated with the then super-popular southern-rock genre. Leonard Skinard, Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels and many, many others. It didn't bother me in that regard back then.

    But as my avatar shows...I'm a Union guy all the way!

    Ahh this really doesn't have much to do with the con. flag itself. You fail again to grasp the bigger picture, so i'll have to spoon feed you. McDonald was trying to portrait the confederate cause not with slavery but with a group of states standing up to a tyrannical government. Because if he portraid it as a fight against the federal government to keep slavery it wouldn't go over to well, so he left slavery out as the main cause of the civil war. He never does say what the main cause was. Old Macdonald was playing to the conservatives that feel that the federal government is again stepping on their rights by enacting legislature such as the health care bill, or bailouts of banks. Other than those percieved slights there isn't much the Obama administration has done. Most of the rage is fueled by politicians TELLING the people that this adm is trampling on they're rights.

    As far as Icy goes i am in control of the verticle ....i am in control of the horizontal....i am controlling my transmission.....if i didn't find ICY's input funny i wouldn't feed into it. Although i still don't know what starsky and hutch have to do with the South :confused:

    Both ICY and Wistah are very funny, you PR are .....................not

    The Doge Charger with the 426 hemi was my favorite muscle car, not the 426 wedge but the hemi. Some like the wedge but i didn't/don't

    Yup ... :yeahthat: ... super lousy old style politics really. As was stated in this thread the south is really only 4 states now ... would be better off if it was "0".
