Great question Zoltar.
Maybe you can use your influence to also obtain an explanation for the rest of us as to the events at Little Round Top, especially the success of Chamberlain's bayonet charge. How the knives beat the rifles is always been a quandary to me.
Anyway, carry on.
Well....General Mead told me that Chamberlain's charge down Little Round Top, caught the Confederates by surprise by utilizing a "right wheel" manuever which out-flanked the Rebels on their right. The element of surprise was so complete, Chamberlain's men took about 200 prisoners and held the ground in the process.

General Lee has not answered my question. I guess he is busy taking care of Traveler.

You are truly a nut. The repubs wanted NO tax increase, so what they did was allow an existing tax break to expire, thatís not a new tax in repub land. To get to the next physical cliff in a rare compromise they allowed an increase in taxes of people who make more than $250,000.00 that now take advantage of the income tax system. Nobody who posts on this site makes enough money to be concerned.
You are the stupidist poster no matter what name you use. Everybody taxes has went up because of Obama and Harry.

"You are truly a nut." LMAO. Kind of an ironic comment coming from you.

Physical cliff: what's that, too many pushups?

BTW, your number is wrong, but that's certainly not surprising.

"that now take advantage of the income tax". Yeah, those evil rich people again, taking advantage of rules that are available for all of us. Wealth envy certainly is an ugly thing...

The sad thing is, the people of Georgia are so stupid they will buy his song and dance.
And these two bank bail out buds also voted for the 2008 bail out of the Wall Street banks. First the bank bail out votes now the tax increase vote. You can always count of these two RINO's to vote with the democrats when the chips are down. They have become part of the Washington establishment and loving their life inside the beltway. They are spending too much time with their K Street friends and less time with the people of Georgia they are supposed to represent.

When it all comes crashing down both dem and repub congressmen will be hunkering down in the well guarded western Whitehouse located in West Virginia. There will be the best wine and steaks served while there s caos in the streets. This place for the president in case of War is 65 miles west of DC and the President his family, congressmen and their families will Ride the storm out in ease and comfort.

What you're thinking of is the Greenbrier, located in White Sulfur Springs, WV - near my old stomping ground of .... It is in the southeastern part of the state, near the VA line. The [once secret] "Bunker", the "Emergency Relocation Center" as it was called back then, is now open to the public for paid tours and is no longer guarded by .. anybody.

In time of war, the President and others will be flown to the Cheyenne Mountain NORAD Complex which is located at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, a short distance from the USNORTHCOM headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, CO.

You might also be thinking of the five emergency core government bodies that were, and maybe still are, scattered around the country, each consisting of about one hundred members who "serve" one month on, three months off.

The one closest to us is/was reportedly located about mid-way between Andrews and Nantahala Gorge (sp), NC in what was once a rock quarry. They were/are re-supplied out of KRHP (Murphy/Andrews) with Cray 1200J computer facilities in Andrews.(Remember Eric Rudolph and the ATF compound they had, and might still have? Guess what?) Their existence is/was hardly a secret but the government probably still denies they're there.

And who exactly borrows the money (and sets the budget)? The President? Not hardly (no Constitutional authority to do so)! Congress? Close. The House? Really close. The House Ways and Means Committee, chaired by David, a/k/a "Dave," Camp, R, 4th Congressional District, MI? BINGO, you win the booby prize, a five hundred, thirty-one page illustrated booklet on how our government works plus a giant roll of duct-tape (for your foot-in-mouth problem)!

The really sad thing is that you actually believe that refusing to work with the Dems is a bad thing. You sir and people like you are slowly destroying this great country. A country BUILT on people working together and compromising for the greater good. You are the really stupid one.

But I really beleive this type of attitude will backfire on you. As an independent I have never voted for either Republcian mentioned, but I will now.

Horses are like that. 20 hours maintenance - 1 hour riding.

General, sir. Would you mind telling me why, at Gettysburg, did you order General Longstreet to attack Mead's forces at the center of the line rather than perform a flanking maneuver from the right?
Thanks. I hope you are feeling well sir.
There is more to the history of this battle, so much so, your question cannot be properly answered.

don't mean to butt in on this,but it is much more intresting than the political stuff.about the "bayonet charge",Longstreet said after the war,that they(Chamberlins men)did not even need weapons-they could have just rolled boulders down on them,speaking of how formidable the union position was.
