The Desperate, Outnumbered Neo-Confederacy Continues Its Fantasy of Rising Again

Jan 6, 2013 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: pamshouseblend.firedoglake.com

There is an interesting piece up at Salon by Andrew O'Hehir, " Welcome to the new Civil War ," where he discusses the neo-Confederacy elements in our culture that are trying to turn back the clock on women, gays, God and guns, drawing parallels to the Lincoln administration .

Higher education is badly needed everywhere, not only in the USA.. This would take people's minds off their neighbor's skin color, nationality and bedroom habits and concentrate them on things that really matter. After all those tens of thousands of years it's taken nature to develop our brains they are miserably wasted on trivia, to the detriment of ourselves and those that will follow us.. Ignorance is the mother of all evils..

This article starts out with "We’ve just emerged from a presidential campaign that exposed how hardened our political and cultural divide has become, and how poorly the two sides understand each other." And then it goes on to prove that the left clearly doesn't understand the right, even as the author is blah-blah-blahing on and on about what they think they understand about the right. The author is wrong. Nonsense like this just goes to show the leftists are very ignorant or they are purposely writing b.s. to throw off other leftists.

You really should do some research to see just how bad your Right-winged conservative idiots want to go to STEAL back the White House and other areas that they no longer understand and can't control!!!

With Obama winning 100-158% of some precincts this time. I doubt when he runs for a 3rd term in 2016 he'll lose.

Unless there has been some change to how many times a person can be reelected to the Presidency that I'm unaware of.......a person can only serve 2 terms, which is 8 years. These limits were put into effect to make sure that we didn't have another issue like this Country had under FDR, not that FDR wasn't a great President, but when folks stay to long in office.......we don't have changes come in and we need that!!!

I'm hoping for a Clinton/Rice ticket in 2016......now, if Rice would just change parties.......lol!!!

Really, when? How was this election fixed? or are you just upset that even though the Republicans tried to make sure Romney won......President Obama got reelected anyways?

I don't think that Hilary has much left to give. She really did beat herself all to hell as one of the most stunningly effective Secretaries of State I've seen in my lifetime.

Rice? Not a chance.

Picture a Bachmann/Palin ticket though (and try to keep your lunch down).
