I asked Keith:
Keith, you said:
"The fact that numerically they were conquered and forced into submission is where the fight will never end. I know "The Cause" is not the term we are looking for. For that will always point to the
institution of slavery. But the determination to stand and fight what was seen as wrong is to be admired and upheld as right and just."
So I ask: if the South was conquered "numerically", why did they not simply arm their slaves as soldiers to achieve their independence?
And I also ask: If something is seen as wrong, and men are determined to stand up fight against that wrong, why do you not "admire and uphold" those men who did just that, as being "right
I do admire them. They were the Confederate States military. Please don't respond to my posts JakeO. I find you tiresome and annoying. Go away.
Nuff said? There was nothing uncivil or sarcastic or inappropriate in my questions to Keith about his statement. He chose to respond in a personal and insulting manner, so I mocked his childishness,, since this was the second time he chose to respond to my posts with deliberate sarcasm in two days. (He even tried to apologize for his first outburst but then immediately turned around and played it again? )
It is all "on the record" you might say. I have to smile though, at how quickly you resorted to the childhood classic "but he did it first" ploy. If you are going to play that way at least get it correct.
"But, JakeO drew first blood...." Oh heavens !
