Being Toothless, Being illiterate, Being Fat, Poverty, Teens dropping out of high school, teens getting pregnant (with no income to buy baby supplies or pay for doctor visits) and what do they accomplish ? Changing the laws to make it easier for churches even if it equates to less safety for the average citizen. Crazy damned world we live in.

lonely bird Wrote: i don't live in the south because my family is in the north and my job is in the north.my issue with the south stems from something much deeper. i have an intense hatred for traitors and those who revel in treason. that isn't "my country, right or wrong" or some such nonsense. it is my country, period. i suppose i would have the same feelings if i were born and raised in canada or somewhere else. after all, patriotism is simply tribalism. the so-called heritage and bullshit over confederate battle flags is celebrating treason, plain and simple. if the south had approached congress and attempted legal means to remove themselves from the union which, imo, is an issue worthy of discussion then that would have one thing. by firing on fort sumter they committed treason, again plain and simple. oh, and any human being who owned another human being was by definition sub-human. and that goes for the founders. jefferson may have been brilliant but he sacrificed his humanity by owning human beings.and, btw, i do not give a damn what those who top-dance around the causes of the ciivl war claim. it was about slavery. the states' rights argument was centered around one issue and one issue only: were states allowed to write laws that permitted one human being to own another human being. anyone who says otherwise is full of crap.
