Jul 12th 2010 5:03PM Come on guys, this may be a terrorist supporting country, but an easy way to keep tabs on whats going on inside the country is thru social networking sites. If they can open these closed countries up, then its a great tool that the U.S. can use.
Apr 15th 2010 1:36PM look what I am saying is that if I and other southerners, want to honor the confederate dead then let us do so. If you dont then thats your own choice, just dont bash us for doing so.
Apr 15th 2010 1:27PM Honestly i dont know why it became a symbol for the south, it was a navy esign during the confederacy. But it is a symbol of the condfederacy, and the fact is despite whatever the reason these modern day racist hate groups have done with the flag, it represents the confederacy as well. And these confederates were americans, and they should be respected for what they did. the stood up and fought for what they thought was right, and usually in america that is looked up to, if its by another american. But this is a touchy subject, you dont have to like the confederacy, i dont care if you do. But dont critize me because i choose to honor my ancestors (who fought for the confederacy) and the other confederate soldiers.
Apr 15th 2010 1:21PM you really think you could convince 95% of the southern population to fight a war based on the fact to protect slavery. that would be impossible to do, so there had to be several reason, many of which were more important to southerners than slaves.
Apr 15th 2010 1:15PM Its called reading a history book. But if you want to know for sure, google it. With a little research you can find that areas like ghana and nigeria, their ecnomies depended on the slave trade.
Apr 15th 2010 1:07PM good post, except for the confederate dead was closer to 350,000.
Apr 15th 2010 1:03PM madmax, do you really think the civil war was caused by slavery and nothing else?
Apr 15th 2010 1:02PM you do realize the the north had slaves too. you do know that they only banned slavery in the north a few years before the war began. you do realize that one of the largest slave markets in modern history was in new york city. agian get off your high horse and crack open a real history book, not the ones youve been reading.
Apr 15th 2010 12:59PM that is true, but that part of slavery doesnt fit into the idea of the slavery in america, so they just omit it.
Apr 15th 2010 12:54PM madmax, your idiocy is annoying.
