Unfortunately the content of this thread is not exclusive to Alabama. Just a random thought, no proof or examples.

Yeah, speaking of Alabama, I was there for Christmas and the Duck Dynasty people came up. NO ONE said a word about the anti-gay, happy-Jim-Crow comments made by the patriarch. We just talked about how funny Sy is, Jack.

The lesson of "agree to disagree" with Sharon has been learned, I think.

Yay, Alabama.

Oh, God, for a second, I thought they 'came up' as in came to your house.

So you can probably count your blessings that at least that didn't happen.

Unless I was right the first time and it did.

Just got invited to a redneck-themed New Year's Eve party. I'm thinking, "Why can't we have fun without making fun?" Or, as I age, is my introversion taking a drastic turn to the anti-social?

Is there any way you could dress up like whoever is hosting the party? It would still be making fun of someone, but at least it'd be to their face.

You're just becoming a more normal person, just like me. Sometimes I'd like to hibernate from Dec. 1 till Feb. 1 but my daughters birthdays are in Dec. and mine is in Jan. so I'm stuck. My family just won't let me alone.

I keep wondering exactly what kind of economy an independent South would have. Like if the US was all "Fine, GTFO" what exactly would they do? What assets would stay here? What is produced in enough quantity to export? Who would they export to? Do they think foreign countries would jump on trade agreements with the New Confederacy?

I am pretty sure nobody really wants to actually secede...it's just a shock word.

I will always profess my deep, heartfelt desire that such places like Alabama, Texas and this great state that my daddy's family has lived in for hundreds of years should secede if that is their desire. Most of the south could use another round of Reconstruction.

Only recently has the percentage of African Americans serving in the House of Representatives gotten as high as it was in 1870.

In Georgia about a third of the population is African American and about a fifth of the members of the General Assembly are.

So, while I don't wish the kind of bloodshed and atrocities that occurred during the Civil War on anybody, my knowledge of history makes me want to encourage them a little.

:)

I don't know that. I think alot of them do. They think the feds take from them, they think they would be better off. There are quite a few Southerners who do long for the good ol days before agitators came down here and riled up the coloreds.

I feel dirty typing it, but I am sure that there are people who believe that. Sure they couch there shit in dogwhistle words today in public, but give me a few minutes alone with them.

Don't feel too bad, they are planning on putting one up in Atlanta this summer.

Default Re: Only in Alabama

Many of the Secede folks remind me of the Tea-billies on hover-rounds. Who are angry, mostly at the horrible persecution they feel for not being completely catered to and aren't really educated enough to realize what they are ranting about actually means. They just need to rant about something! They are also both so far away from actually getting what they want that they can thrash about without ever actually dealing with the consequences of what they are asking for.

I'm sure the nostalgic whitewashing of the Antebellum south has helped as well. There are probably many whites on welfare that believe if it wasn't for the north ripping coloreds away from their 'loving' white families, everyone would be living in huge plantation houses being dressed by their colored seamstress family member to go to the local ball.

I think Ari hit it on the head. They have never thought about the consequences because there is no need to. If they truly want to secede, they must have no idea about many things...like how dependent on Federal funds our states are, like how to actually financially run a country...shit like that

There are two possible interpretations here that come to mind…

LSM saw Hitler’s quotation, agreed with it, and didn’t give a second thought to who the hell Hitler was.
LSM was suggesting that evil people might get to your children, so Bible-lovin’ Christians need to get to them first!

To my surprise, the correct answer appears to have been Option #1.

“We are pulling the billboard and certainly never intended to cause confusion. … Herbert Hoover would have been a far better one to quote when he said, ‘Children are our most valuable resource,’” founder James Anderegg told the Ledger-Enquirer. “We are a children’s organization and had honorable intentions and nothing less.”
