@Iamnameless, I enjoy history, especially US Civil War history. Slavery was not the issue although some wish to pretend that was. Referring to the swastika, I would say that I do not blame the German people for what an Austrian immigrant did to their country. They suffered greatly too. However I see no 'fun' in RP'ing as a Nazi. (God help them if they really believe they are a Nazi.) Even though the Nazi mystique and the history of Hitler is very interesting there is no possible explanation for the atrocities committed. Even the Ku Klux Klan had some legitimate reasons for being after the fall of the Confederacy (not that I believe they were 'right' or 'good'). Hitler had one central purpose, world domination by genocide and subjugation. All were inferior to the Aryan peoples and even those inferior to himself.

@Norbengo, it's the hat on general Lee isn't it? You cracked up when you saw 'Santa Lee' and realized that I have a warped sense of humor. :D

Pickl, was John Wilkes Boothe a Patriot or assassin? I liked Lincoln, but that's not the question (or shouldn't be). Lincoln was the nations top soldier, the nation was at war (I know, it was technically over but then lets just say this happened a month earlier and continue), the top soldier was killed.

My son played JWB in a school play. His teacher told him JWB was a "bad guy". I thought that was rather simplistic to say the least, though equally the "common" conception historically.

I'm of the opinion that had the south won the war, JWB most certainly wouldn't have been viewed as a "bad guy" (and that's my only dog).

History is written by the victors.

As to slavery, change the word slave out for money and do you have a problem? Wars are usually fought for economic reasons, my belief is this was true for the Civil War as well, in large part.

This is always amusing to me. Hanibal, do you not have the capability and/or means to message your own people? The only time I pester you is to post something I want AFA to see or to respond to you or one of your flunkies. I do not post messages for my people on your articles. I spent $4000 for 500 votes, can you not afford to do the same? Have some balls man, pony up the fake eBucks.

@Candor, Personally I view JWB as an assassin. If the war was still on it could be rationalized that the killing was an act of war. Regardless, the manner in which Lincoln was killed was clearly an assassination. The CIA, while denying it, to this day uses the same tactic to harass our enemies. Personally, I think JWB was a psychopath with deep seated anger issues.

To be clear, I understand why Lincoln was and is such a popular figure. My reasons for not liking him are very similar to the reason I don't like popular presidents today. Lincoln was pretty much the innovator of PR spin, he also 'created' executive privilege. His third fling whom he eventually married, Mary Todd actually brought family slaves on their honeymoon. The Todd's were prosperous slave owners/traders from Kentucky. Lincoln was the first president to use exec privilege to trample our constitutional rights. One of his first acts during the war of Northern aggression would be to 'shut down' Northern newspapers that printed anti-war articles. Yes, Lincoln was quite a liberator, if you agreed with him.

In a letter to Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune Lincoln said, "My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery.". He goes on to say that he really didn't care if slaves were free or not, but that he did prefer freedom. The war was all about money. The South had it and Northern robber barons wanted it.

Frederick Douglass is the all time greatest 'spin doctor', he took a rebellion for states rights and turned it into a struggle for freedom; the only mistake the south made was not freeing the slaves before firing on Fort Sumter.

Thedillpickl
Thedillpickl Day 1,860, 05:55

@Ichabod, that is something to consider I suppose. Could you differentiate between fighting for the right to self govern and the struggle for freedom. I'm a bit fuzzy on that point.The rebels from 1776 stood up to King George for much the same reason and they secured our freedom as independent states. Not sure if King George put any 'spin' on things. I think he mostly said FU and threw people in the dungeon.

Thedillpickl Day 1,860, 06:21

I'd like to say that I believe that slavery never really ended in the US. Prior to the Emancipation Proclamation slave ownership was legal in many of the United States. Afterward the country floundered for a few decades, and through a series of major wars, we built ourselves up to a world powerhouse. We were top of the line through the 50's & 60's. What was the difference between WWI and WWII? FDR's new deal. With the economic depression and the dust bowl leaving many Americans starving Roosevelt sends relief to the people. The second wave of federal 'help' is not so good. Works Progress Administration (WPA) creates camps full of underpaid workers who depend upon the WPA for food and housing. The United States Housing Authority allows for the 'warehousing' of people that we don't know what to do with. The Farm Security Administration was a failed attempt to create federally owned communes. It failed because farmers would rather starve to death than sell out to the govt. And finally Social Security... The slush fund for pork barrel spending. "Give us your money and we'll dole it out to you when you retire.". Yeah, and make you feel like giving you back your own money is a big deal.

Now people live in HUD housing, get food stamps (EBT) and have their needs subsidized all the time while working at Wal-Mart for below poverty wages. Way to go! Sam Walton's family are the plantation owners and they've figured out how to make Uncle Sam house, feed and clothe their slaves.

"Requesting if you are not in a top 4 party that you move to WTP or USWP for ATO BEFORE reset on the 23rd."

As you are referring to the "Top 4" as opposed to the "Top 5", that would be AFA, AMP, Federalist and USWP as they are the four highest ranking parties. Puts a different spin on your attempt to revise the vocabulary of the game mechanics, doesn't it?

"Puts a different spin on your attempt to revise the vocabulary of the game mechanics, doesn't it?"

Not at all sir. I do not count the AFA as a legitimate party. If you would like to play semantics I could have said the lower 4 of the top 5. But the thing is that even n00bs who understand what is going on can plainly understand what I've said. I don't have to send out fake directions from fake govt. agencies in mass mailings to try to trick our younger players. Maybe Chickensguys could take a clue.
