re: Covid-19 in Georgia: The Second Wave - Lucius Clay
[quote]Mask True Believers[/quote] But Trump is now suddenly wearing one and saying it's "patriotic" to do so. Is he a True Believer or did he cave in to some new campaign advisor?...

re: Covid-19 in Georgia: The Second Wave - Lucius Clay
Witnessed quite a scene at the big post office on Ponce this past Saturday. Huge line, everyone in masks. In walks a guy, looked to be in his sixties, with no mask. Gets in line but several people began verbally badgering him. Then one lady starts calling him a "horrible person." He defends himself ...

Well unfortunately the Supreme Court has disagreed with you about a dozen times, going back to 1869. But you can always revolt. Lol?...

[quote]the Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves from the Confederate States. Slavery still legal in "The North" for a number of years after.[/quote] Let me help you out... The Emancipation Proclamation technically didn't make slavery illegal anywhere. It was a military and symbolic move in...

[quote]The Constitution does not state that no state is allowed to withdraw.[/quote] It also doesn't state that states may withdraw, either...but it certainly implies it's not an option. Ever wonder why the Constitution has procedures for [b]adding[/b] states but not for removing any??? The ...

Interesting connection you're drawing...doesn't make much sense...but interesting. I guess we can assume you prefer that the pro-slavery crowd had won. Are you that former head writer for Tucker Carlson? ?? ...

[quote]the Constitution has been amended many times[/quote] Yes, what's your point? It was never amended to allow states to secede, thus making the action of Southern states treason. You think an amendment allowing secession will ever be put forth by two-thirds of Congress or two-thirds of the...

[quote]As for breaking up into two countries, that is exactly what was done in 1861, until one country invaded the new country and eventually forcefully took possession of the other one.[/quote] You glossed over the fact that the Constitution does not allow states or groups of states to leave and...

[quote]the two sides[/quote] This concept has been created and promoted by politicians and the media for their own enrichment for generations but it's been worsened in the Internet age. The political class and the media directly profit from conflict and have strong incentive to push polarization....

[quote]when some of those states chose to voluntarily withdraw from the United States, the other states attacked them and forced them back into the United States.[/quote] Can't argue with that. But those states had signed and ratified the Constitution 75 years prior. The Constitution isn't a cont...

[quote]But there seems to be a lot of rewriting of history.[/quote] This isn't new information. I remember reading about efforts of the UDC and other groups as a freshman in college...and that was a LONG time ago... (yeah kind of a history buff for kicks). I think this stuff is just getting "r...

[quote]They are about their war dead. [/quote] That's a nice story but that period also happened to coincide with Jim Crow, the resurgence of the Klan, and the creation of the myth of the "Lost Cause of the Confederacy." Read up on the United Daughters of the Confederacy... They sponsored hun...

[quote]The vast majority of those who volunteered to fight and died did not, and would never, own slaves. [/quote] True. But I'm willing to bet that 99% of them sure didn't like the idea of black folks being citizens and worst of all, being allowed to vote. Hence all the efforts they expended ...

[quote]southerners did not want to seceded and were very happy simply being Americans [/quote] Not so sure about this. In the America of the 1860s, people tended to identify very strongly with their state. Southerners in areas economically reliant on slavery were certainly not keen on going along...

[quote]Hard to believe that people like you bothered to attend the backwoods country college called UGA...if you did. [/quote] Twice. Undergrad and later returned and got an MBA, in part to have an excuse to hang around Athens another couple of years. We had a pretty good share of metro kids ...

re: What percentage do you think CFB is played this fall? - Lucius Clay
If we can have large scale protests and political rallies, we can have football games with fans. Just temperature checks on the way in, mandatory masks, and hand out those travel size containers of hand sanitizer to everyone. Old folks can opt to stay home. The only downside is that the masks mig...

[quote]Right, a guy that every Democrat AND Republican Establishment politician hates[/quote] As far as Republicans, you must have meant to say, "hated"...since almost all of them (let's take Lindsey Graham as poster child) miraculously went from condemning Trump to praising and defending him.

[quote]George Soros[/quote] Speaking of...the latest meme from the MAGA crowd is that George is paying protestors $1000 a day to protest. Some 75-year-old dimwit from East Tennessee claimed that a protestor in an airport told her that...as usual, it has become fact to the red hats. :rotflmao:...
