  1. You can't maintain the same position for five posts! Are you offended by the term, or is it just a phantom? Bonus question: is there a difference between mocking people for what they believe, and mocking them for what they are (and have no control over)?
  2. Try thinking harder next time. I guess you're in the club with Smokey and Duke of people who try to excuse the Confederacy? I'm sorry to hear that.
  3. I've heard of people who think the slaves actually had it "pretty good" and argued that they lived better here than they did in Africa, or than some free men did. That's a contemptible viewpoint, but it's one of the revisionist history things neon-Confederates trot out from time to time in their ongoing effort to rehabilitate that terrible state. I certainly hope you are not one of these people. Things like the Confederacy can happen again if we do not keep in mind the evil that lay at the core of it. This is why I find defense of it both difficult to understand and easy to condemn.
  4. The Orioles have been known to mislead fans in the past, for marketing reasons. My position, expressed tongue-in-cheek, is that I would need to see this from a source not controlled by the team. I realize you are merely the messenger in this particular instance and no attack against you was intended.
  5. I have never advocated that position. I don't mind if you disagree with things I write. Don't make sxxt up so you can disagree with that; it's as dishonest as pretending the Confederacy had any kind of virtues at all.
  6. MASN is basically the Orioles' propaganda arm.
  7. You and the Duke are a pair of attempted rehabilitators whose opinions lack much value.
  8. I'm certain you, an advocate of the Confederacy, find arguments against it hilarious.
  9. I'd like to see how the 18 story building works for a few years, then maybe try one in the 30 or 40 story range. Then 60. I wouldn't jump right to 80, if it were my money and liability.
  10. The Confederacy was a slave state. Those who support it advocate the existence of a slave state. How is this difficult for people to understand? Some try to convince the world that the Confederacy was about states' rights. Sure - the right to enslave men. That was the basis of their economy and the easy lifestyle of the wealthy plantation owner. They saw that threatened by (slightly) more moral men and they panicked, and started a war.
  11. That's just it: Peter doesn't have to care about that because he extorts money from xFinity and Verizon subscribers.
  12. EnochRoot already said she was a politician. You're just pointing out one of their principal qualities, here.
  13. Do you, or do you not, honor the Confederacy? Please be honest. The reason it wanted to exist was to preserve the slave-based economy of the plantation owners. Any other reason is revisionist, as has been explained to you. I'm actually kind of glad you're offended. That's your conscience telling you something. Listen to it.
  14. That makes them more, rather than less, evil in my view. Yes, I understand that we have a lot of immoral businessmen in the modern era, too, and mostly this is because immoral businessmen escape all serious punishment for their misdeeds. That does not excuse their behavior, or that of the Confederate "government".
  15. Your natural rights argument rings a little hollow considering you are one of two big advocates here for a slave state.
