If your examples did not occur during wars and conflagrations (the taking down of monuments that we are discussing is not) , they would be valid comparisons.
Nevertheless

I found it horrible that ISIS destroyed monuments and the like.

To the victor go the spoils. And choice of what to destroy.

As far as the Lee, etc monuments, they could put them in a museum or something that people choose to go and see.
I understand why they want them down but it just seems like a waste of resources when the millions of dollars can be spent instead on things that matter like, as I already said, books and teachers and ceilings that don't leak in schools.

But again, where do you draw the line of who to "take down?" Generals? Owners of slaves? That would include Jefferson and most of them?

-------------------------------------
Are you really pretending not to know what happened in Auschwitz and the like (or pretending that it didn't happen) so that you can stay offended?
That is the end of that conversation for me

-------------------------------------

"""I'm still waiting to find out you you think I am...""""

What does that mean?
If it means what I think that it does, I don't care, really.
Are you confessing to be someone else?
Again, I don't care.

from your post 35 on this thread:


2ufo. You forgot who you were posting as. Revisit.

See, you called me a rightest. The 2ufo personality knows better.
Keep better track of your personalities.

Continue childless to hate yourselves and deny reality.

That's fine.

The rest of us will straighten things out.

We are recycling while you trash the place.
Our efforts will keep this country going.

You are welcome.


So I can go congratulate that person on being associated with me, of course.
Any other reason?


What does that mean?

Again, I don't care.

I'm not confessing to being anyone else but it's easy to see when you make a faux pas... you decide it isn't worth your time to continue the debate or you go jump on a plane.

It is also easy to see that common sense and the English language elude your grasp.
My question was pretty evident and easy to answer. And, I'll ask it again.
Who did you think I was?

Rightist, rightist, rightist. My new word-of-the-day.

Please don't play the dumb act,
The Rev
There is your chance to show how much you understand and comprehend business

Rev ... I thought you knew that he claims to run his own business.

He's a multi-millionaire living in someone's basement somewhere. They let him out to go pick up dog shit and mow lawns.

I think this poster is a troll ... just in here to post GOP nonsense.
Proof>>>
debbie ...
Does anyone understand gto's writing?
Please translate for me.

I don't know a poster that DOESN'T understand "gto" posts. He's smart and articulates well. What's your problem?

(Is he gay? He did say snap. )

Who cares? Are you homophobic too?

OMG ... does that "snap" thingy indicate someone is gay?

I just looked it up and and it says "snap" is a substitute for YIKES!

OMG ... Yikes means someone is gay!
(Does that sound right? No? Good, because I was just joking around! See what it looks like when someone is being ridiculous?)

He brings up topics that no one else is talking about and he goes on and on.

His posts are always on topic to the thread and subject he is addressing.

He does not live in the world or have real experiences. He just looks up articles and studies and reaches incorrect conclusions.

You say that as if you know him! OMG has he been holding out on us? I didn't know he was dating!

I am more educated than he is so it is obvious to me that those websites that he relies on are bunk.

Now there is no way a person could post that unless they actually know "gto" intimately! Hmmmm ... "gto" ... well aren't you the sly one!

He is obviously trying very hard to appear smarter than he is.

How?

John, you seem sane.

Bwahahahahaha .......

Viking ...
It's a total myth that Baby Boomers are retiring or dying; the selfish old people continue to work.

Not being a burden on society is now considered selfish? Interesting.

One reason is the terrible idea of employers providing healthcare. The main reason old people work is to get health care.

My employer does not provide healthcare ... so I guess that myth just got busted. That's not the reason I work.

I work to put a roof over my head, a car in my garage, food on my table ... to keep the electricity on, the gas on, the water running. In the meantime, I am also assisting my daughter with her college education. She gets scholarships and grants because she is very smart and a really good student but that does not always pay for lab fees and books. I am also providing her with a safe and dependable vehicle to drive. I don't consider that "selfish".

The ideal health care would be free *basic* health care for anyone who doesn't have a job, paid by sin taxes on cigarettes and taxes on employer-paid health benefits.

IMO the ideal healthcare would be something that everyone pays into according to their ability to pay and no one would lose their home or ability to feed themself related to having to pay outrageous medical bills.

Such systems do exist in the world as proof positive that we could offer our citizens the same ... if we really wanted to. The politicians really don't care as they have their own healthcare for life ... so who cares about the constituents ... eh? If you took away their healthcare until they passed a viable system for their constituents ... America would have viable healthcare for all within a few months.

BTW ... in the countries that offer that type of healthcare ... the politicians all use the same healthcare system as the peasants.

A suggestion that is out of place from someone who claimed
As far as the statutes, who cares?
I noticed that you activated your malice and changed from "statues" to "monuments". Your next post is going to claim you don't care about the statues but do care about the monuments. There is one thing very predictable about putrid garbage like you and that is, your stink.


the millions of dollars can be spent instead on things that matter like, as I already said, books and teachers and ceilings that don't leak in schools.
I'd say you forgot to include health care for all Americans in that list but, you've repeatedly shown that is not a concern for you. Why would anyone care about the lives and well being of people when there are monuments honoring those who fought for slavery to be preserved.


Are you really pretending not to know what happened in Auschwitz and the like (or pretending that it didn't happen) so that you can stay offended?
No one is pretending that. What is clear is that you open your big mouth in spite of the fact that you don't know what happened in Nazi concentration camps. As you putrefacted piece of garbage often say, google is your friend, find out why the Nazis gassed the Jews instead of "baking" them.


Again, I don't care.
Of course you don't. You're just a frustrated failure. Your mediocrity is evident, as is your ignorance. You try to compensate for your being a failure with hatred, lies and malice.

If slavery hadn't been abolished whoever had the misfortune of owning a piece of garbage like you would pay good money to get rid of you.

That sounds about right. The mediocrity of the kokroach-in-chief supporters is flagrant.

They can never support any of their claims with a sound, logical argument. Just hate and lies, that's the only thing they are capable of producing. What a sad bunch of mediocre, hateful human beings.

I think they ought to take all of the old statues and put them in a museum. Make it a kind of a "History of the South" thing. Make it factual and informative. Charge folks to see them and use the profits for something positive.... Like a college fund or whatever would benefit folks who are disadvantaged.

Hey, these people existed and were in fact shapers of our present. Why not use what is already there to benefit we who are here now? Don't deny the past but learn from it and maybe use it to help people now.

Trolls Tricked Conservatives Into Holding A Massive Rally To Defend A Texas Monument
Several hundred people rallied in Houston, ready to battle and defend the Sam Houston monument. Turns out, they got hoaxed.
Posted on June 12, 2017, at 5:08 p.m.

After weeks of planning, several hundred people from across Texas and from other Southern states converged in Houston on Saturday, prepped for battle and with a serious mission: Protect the Sam Houston Monument at all costs...

..Turns out that Sam Houston, a beloved state hero who served as the first president of the Republic of Texas after it seceded from Mexico, was never in trouble. There hasn’t been any organized effort to remove the giant statue, which has stood erect in the park since 1925. Hearing of the drama, Houston’s mayor emphatically stated that the monument was not being considered for removal.

OP- To get back on topic to the question you originally asked in these forums...

I have lived in the south the majority of my adult life in places like FL, NC, and TX. I travel a lot, and love doing so. From my experiences Florida is a tough place to endure both the heat, and the job market. Those of us that are getting older will have a tough time finding a good job. I love Texas, and the economy there is good. Homes retain their value well, and I love the southern charm there. However taxes (property and sales) are much higher than in North Carolina, as almost everything. I am drawn back to NC for many reasons. As a Christian with traditional European values, I fit in very well. I also enjoy the change of seasons which I did not experience in other places. I do like the Daphne Alabama area, but it is one of those places I consider to be "deep south". That is something you have to live and define for yourself. In the meantime I am like you, OP. I'm tired of the northern traffic, hustle, congestion, pollution, and most of all anonymity. I have certainly resumed my hunting for another North Carolina home.

Makes sense.

The Missouri Civil War Museum has offered to take the monument to southern grunt soldiers. The mayor of STL is already getting it dismantled (and they renamed a street called "Confederate").

Unfortunately the liberal loons aren't satisfied with just the monument being dismantled. They're making strict demands *how* the monument gets displayed in its new home. The Missouri Civil War Museum is unbiased, showing historical fact without injecting opinions. To the liberals, anything other than "north good, south bad" is unacceptable.

Even if the monument were pro slavery, I would be opposed to removal based on principle. Giving in to demands of BLM / NAACP will just create more future problems. They'll get bolder and make additional demands with no end.

Now the idiots have a petition to shut down the Ferguson convenience store where their hero Mike Brown committed a vicious strong arm robbery against a diminutive store clerk. (The liberal media understates the attack, saying Brown "brushed" the clerk. Anyone who tries to excuse the attack deserves to be "brushed" in that manner!) The nig-nogs blame the victim, trying to punish the store that got robbed and attacked. The store has been looted at least twice. When the unreliable liberal rag New York Times posted a doctored video of an earlier crime by Mike Brown in the same store, a bloodthirsty black mob attacked the store, shouting hate speech "Ragheads! Go back to Iraq, terrorists!" (The store is run by Muslims / Arabs, but their background is not Iraq).

Alabama did the right thing by trying to introduce a bill to ban removal of statues / monuments. Good job, sweet home Alabama. Unlike wimpy Louisiana, where welfare queens stayed in luxury hotels for a year or more at taxpayer expense following Katrina, choosing to live below sea level in a known storm surge zone, whining about harmless statues.

My opinion of the Confederate flag and those who proudly fly it continues to rise. Last time I had a negative encounter with a Confederate flag flier was 2001 (an idiot neighbor). Since then, the biggest negatives are being passed by aggressive drivers (with rebel flags on their vehicles) who seem to fancy themselves as the Dukes of Hazzard or the Bandit. The white supremacists who carry Confederate flags represent only a tiny percentage.

How can someone be offended by the Confederate flag, but not by flaming homosexuals who walk around in public with their pants down exposing their stinky butt crack or gay fancy drawers?

I still hate Darren Wilson and always will. Before he shot Mike Brown, a citizen (who sounds white in the video) captured video footage of Wilson brutally bullying him.

Maybe because they are rational and same people who are secure enough with their sexuality not to get their panties in a bunch just because you saw some gay people, but who understand what that flag represents.

But I guess it is a good thing those gay people do not go around exposing their midriff and wear skin tight clothing meant to represent a sports team for the purpose of sucking fans in, as that would be somewhat ironic.

I was referring to "saggin".

Upper left of this page:

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369130448967/

Saggin is used by homosexual "bottoms" in prisons to indicate their desire to be sodomized by "tops". The "fashion trend" has expanded outside prison and is regularly seen in public by black homosexuals and the wiggers who copy black behavior.

Saggin is a palindrome. Notice what it spells backwards. Highly appropriate.

Who knows around this joint. How about you try posting recipes only in the seldom posted to "Recipes & Cooking" section, nowhere else, for a month or two, without the addition of any commentary and see if you still get booted. If you still get booted, I'd wager to say whatever number of ISPs you have used in the past when you were first marked as a mad man are on some form of automatic update removal system. Surely, if someone was reporting you the number of times you get exorcised and return, they'd get booted themselves for being a pest. Go ahead...try the experiment...I dares ya!

Off topics is more giving but you would rather allow for vile bigots like Elphaba than a person who honestly tells it like is and disturbs your poor sensibilities. I get it..

Sounds suspiciously close to something along the lines of misogyny creeping into your post (not unusual, have seen it before but one simply has to consider the source). Perhaps that is your problem, if anyone still has the ability to report people, i.e. thin skinned individuals (can't see it though because there is so much allowed in here that goes well beyond some [not all] of your tripe compared to when there was actual monitoring). I don't care what you do or don't post - it's your opinion - and I can either choose to ignore or respond. The only problem anyone should have in here is if someone seems to be threatening actual harm to someone else, as one particular poster in the past 24 hours or so seems to have bordered on, if not now, possibly in the not too distant future (no, not you). Yup, I guess we all keep strange company in here - yourself included, or you wouldn't choose to keep coming back and respond to those you disagree with or dislike, rather than ignore. With respect to "telling it like it is", that's entirely subjective unless substantiated by fact.
