  •  Typical southern hospitality... (0+ / 0-)

    ...you thinking of exercising your second amendment rights?

    •  Just expressing my admiration (0+ / 0-)

      for your spirit of civitas.  I love that you took this opportunity to slam tens of millions of your fellow citizens as a response to one person's erroneous statement.

      By the way, it's spelled "secede."

      •  No, I simply remark that the rest of the US would (0+ / 0-)

        ...be happier w/o the south. It's truly unfortunate for all the good citizens of the south to be screwed over so badly living in what I expect would be economic backwaters, but if the south had negotiated a stalemate or whatever and been left happily to go their way, we, in the rest of the US would be better off.

        I'm NOT saying better for you in MS or the rest of the former confederacy, but much, much better for the rest of the US. Manifest destiny be damned, sir, but we are suffering for the idiots you send us as national politicians and the way our un-democratic government is set up with the senate holding ALL of us hostage, we are screwed with the George W. Bush and his ilk.

        I'd wish you well, had this happened, and welcome you to flee to the north but we're bearing the scars of a 150 year ago war for slavery today with a burden that the European nations simply do not bear. Peace.

        •  You're in agreement with a lot of Rebs (0+ / 0-)

          and equally as ignorant.

          The real economic divides in modern times are rural vs. urban. And the real future of conservatism is in states that were never part of the CSA.  But please don't let abject ignorance of the new south stop you from presenting your historical analyses. It's entertaining.

           I actually think "the North" would do a good job producing national idiots without our help. The current crop of Bachmann, Cantor, Ryan, Boehner et al is pretty low on Confederates.
