"It looks as though you are adding the south to your list"
I wasn't aware that I had a list but if you say so......
How am I slamming the south by what I said in reply to your wife's post?
I was just stating my opinion based on MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES, which are that the people from the southern states HAVE APPEARED TO ME to be as prejuced toward northerners as some poeple claim we are against them. I have bought, sold and traded a lot of old tractors, equipment and parts with people from all over the country,and I'm not the no-nothing blowhard you seem to be making me out to be.
I agree, Bubba jokes and Gone With the Wind can't give a true picture. Neither can C.B. jokes and Smokey and the Bandit. Since you admitted you were wrong, I can too. I didn't mean to offend you by not replying, I just didn't realize it was nessesary.
The comment about being friendly, EVEN TO YANKEES sounded like it was meant as..."We'll be nice to Yankees,substandard as they are"
You accuse me of not knowing what I'm talking about? How do you know what I've experienced?
I am entitled to my opinion, just as you are entitled to yours...but I don't take well to being TOLD what to think..

Good of you to reply. I know you have your opinions but I felt they did not accurately reflect the South. Real Southerners do not think Yankees are sub standard. Remember the South lost the war. I certainly am not trying to tell you what to think. I admit that I don't know how much you know about the South, but I was simply responding to your characterizations about the South and/or my wife and in my opinion your characterizations were inaccurate. I don't mean any disrespect to you.

Oslo says: "Remember the South lost the war."

Whoever told you that did'nt study history very well. When the southern folks found out that the northern folks only wanted enough Ubangee brood stock to fill up Cleveland, Chicago and Detroit they all went on back home and let the Yanks have them.

Kindy odd that Honest Abe did'nt put slavery in as an issue til 3 years after the war of aggression started. Then it was only to keep the western territories from having slavery when they became states.

Desertions were high in the Union army, and anti-war riots were going on in the larger cities, especially Chicago and New York City. President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation to give a "cause" for the war, maybe a rallying cry. The Emancipation Proclamation did not free a slave in any state that was still in the Union; it only "freed" the slaves that were in rebellion. Of course, these states did not recognize Lincoln as their president. So...the E.P. really did not free slaves anywhere. It was a masterful stroke of political genuis on the part of Mr. Lincoln.

Yep they had all them probs but like I said it was to keep the new states coming into the union from out west slave free. If the territories coming into the union had gone pro slave the union would'nt be here today.

It was done strictly as a life saver for the Union more than as a genious move.

Abe did'nt want to sign it because of the amount of slaves his FIL owned. FIL was very much against it so Abe was catching heck at home when he signed the law.

Interesting thing is.......with all the wars, conflicts and whatever: Mankind has not truly learned from history at all....Sad too, because this planet houses many races and yet, peace will never reign.
