Re: “Reader: We all know why the Civil War took place

I dont know why anyone with ancestors that were in that War North or South should be ashamed. Its not like we had a damn thing to do with it. Your oath is very honorable but did you ever think thats the same oath both sides of that War were following. Its kind of like being ashamed of being German because your great grandfather was in the German Army. The wealthy from both sides started the War over commerce a big part of that commerce was slaves. It was the poor or less then wealthy that spilled the blood.Kind of like today it sure as hell ant the rich kids dying in our Wars. The only thing to be ashamed of is the use of Historical artifacts as racist propaganda now.

Re: “Enjoy your freedom to die

I wonder if creepy, nasty, poisonous old Jim Hightower recalls the uplifting Jonathan Edwards song "Sunshine?" The lyrics, "He can't even run his own life, I'll be damned if he'll run mine" remain powerful today as left-wing ideologues continue to try to control people's lives.
