Well mr too scared to make a profile. My 5th grade antics still surpass your 2nd grade level.
Arguing with you is like running against you in the special Olympics. I will win and you are still retarded.
Normally I would toss out a more PC friendly term like mentally deficient but since you have already proven that you love to use hateful and derogatory terms I am lowered myself to your level.
You only use the term Teabagger to describe a specific group of people you don't like.
One can safely assume that of there is a certain group of black people you don't like you would happily and quite gayly toss out the n word.
Yea boy, you've got me quaking in my boots with that mind like a steel trap. Go ask mom if you can stay up past night on the computer and maybe she'll help you right some big boy material. I'm too scared to have a war of words with a titan of the English language like you. And I'm sorry about you being sensitive about tea bagging. What you do with consenting adults is your business and nothing to be ashamed about tea bagging unless you end up with two black eyes and really bad breath!

The South will rise again? Good lord.
The only thing keeping the South "down" is the perpetuation of intertwined ignorance and hate, glossed over with thin veneer of faux "heritage." Please join the rest of us in the 21st century.
No what's keeping the South down is Liberal minded idiots who come to the South and try to erase Southern Culture and heritage wiggers, uppity blacks, lefty hippies, and illegals not to mention the Stupid asses in D.C sticking they're nose in everything trying to trample on States' Rights one of the main causes of the Civil War to begin with ignorant people believe that war was justabout slavery, it wasn't. My family has lived in the South since they first come here from Ireland, They fouhgt for freedom during the Revolution and fought for freedom again during the Civil War, my family has been in NEA for 5 generations and we will be here for 5 more God Bless Dixie Land

Joey, you have some real comprehension problems. I think you pretty much got the gist of my reply so it really doesn't require elaboration. You really have to get some better material.

The gist of your post was that you are a racist that gets so upset when called out on it that you lose basic English skills.

You're kind of stuck in the 1960s. What's keeping the South down is the need for better public education, lack of economic opportunity in the form of industry that pays living wages with benefits, and people like you who don't have a clue what you're rattling on about but are always the most vocal at a shit stirring. My family has been in the South since the late 1700s but we were just subsistence farmers with the occassional merchant. I'm very proud of my Southern heritage but I'm not proud about the negative things that made headlines in the 1960s. We treated black Americans like shits and denied them their civil rights and forced them to attend segregated schools where they were not afforded the same educational standards. That is not an era I'm proud of. Just like our country, the South has some wonderful history that we can take pride in but also like the USA we have some history to be ashamed of. Our forefathers didn't fight for freedom in the Civil War. They fought for what the aristocratic ruling class sold them in propaganda. They served bravely in a cause that was not what they were told it was. That same group that controlled the political climate then were the landed gentry who clung to power during the civil rights wars of the 1960s. I don't walk around feeling guilty about the negative side of our history but I do know it for what it is. Just like I'm proud of the USA, I'm proud of the South and I want to see both flourish and embrace a positive future. You cling to that rebel flag and great great grandaddy Corpone T Beurogard and I'll live in the real world.

Unless you are somehow the person in charge of this thread, I don't think anybody really cares whether you think no more comments are needed. I gather from your comment that you fly a rebel flag. It's worth noting that most people that fly a rebel flag are seen as either rednecks, racist or both. You may not be in this category but I think the average person sees people who fly a rebel flag generally consider them to fall into one of these categories.

I'm proud to be an American and a Southerner. That doesn't mean I'm proud of everything that's a part of the history of either. Like most countries, our history includes many glorious acts and many that are just the opposite. Manifest Destiny was the excuse we used to take land from the land from the Mexicans and take native American Indian land and kick them off it. It's shameful the way we treated the Indians and damn sure not something I'm proud of but it is part of our history.

The Civil War was a devisive war pitting American against American. I had relatives who fought for the confederacy. I'm sure they fought proudly for what they believed were legitimate reasons and that's not something I'm ashamed of. But the war itself was created because the wealthy plantation class controlled the state governments and they didn't want to lose their forced laborers. They portrayed it as an evil federal government imposing invalid intrusions upon states' rights and there were some that felt that way but when you boil the fat down to shit it was about keeping the institution of slavery which amounted to a very small number of wealthy people who wanted to maintain the status quo. Brother fought against brother in this horrible war and they served with pride for a cause they believed to be legitimate and just.

I don't have any regard for the rebel flag other than as a historical item. When you fly one or display one, it is generally perceived by most people as a statement. I don't think people see your flag and think "Oh, there's a person who is proud of his relative's service but not the bad part of it." Again, when I see it I think redneck (and not in the complimentary outdoor working class it once meant) or a racist who thought their was something noble about slavery. Your intentions in flying rebel flag may be noble but I don't think that's the impression it gives off to the average person.

Well, your buddies the democrats tried for ages to block the anti hanging law. It used to be normal for the democrats to hang us negroes and the republicans.

But hey, you still have your people like fo show. He likes to publicly call us negroes boy, just like cathouse, and his very name makes fun of the way negroes talk.

If you were even registered to vote I would be surprised. I think you need to spend more time on the History Channel and less time on topix.
