Nope, nothing to regret there...you did just right!

So what did Grandaddy say that was wrong? Oral history is important, too. And, Sherman was not a nice dude, but it's somehow ok for you to insult and wish ill on a group of people? Hypocrite much?

Please enlighten us *rolls eyes*

It seeks not to elevate or to support the slave, but to destroy his present condition without providing a better. It has invaded a State, and invested with the honors of martyrdom the wretch whose purpose was to apply flames to our dwellings, and the weapons of destruction to our lives. It has broken every compact into which it has entered for our security.... Mississippi Declaration of Secession. // FACT : The Federal Government did not create the States. The States created the Federal Government. // Take a look at present day Detroit, Michigan or Chicago, Ill. and dozens more... on how the North has advanced the African American.

Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery-- the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. That blow has been long aimed at the institution, and was at the point of reaching its consummation. There was no choice left us but submission to the mandates of abolition, or a dissolution of the Union, whose principles had been subverted to work out our ruin. That we do not overstate the dangers to our institution, a reference to a few facts will sufficiently prove.

Yes,oh yes.....it takes a real man to fight against women and children. By then that was mostly all that was left.

I've never been a big fan of General Sherman - his attacks against the Native Americans was pure genocide. But the more I hear about "Southern History" from folks who think they know it because their granddaddies told them, the more I think Sherman should have cut a much bigger, deeper swath than just Atlanta to "the sea."

There is a lot more to the story than slavery. The Great Pres. Lincoln didn't care about the slaves...do the research on his documented quotes he made about Blacks. From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks..Matt. 12:34 He was a tyrant and his objective was to burn,kill and destroy every family in the South. He is the only U.S. President to order his Generals to wage war on civilians. This left thousands of women,children and sick elderly people totally homeless and starving in the South. And because of this there is a great monument built to a man that had a hatred so deep for the South and it's people that God allowed a Northern born and raised man, John Wilkes Booth to send him to eternity. God gives the final Judgement ....regardless of what century you were born in.

That is the problem with pandering. You pander to one group and then the winds shifts and you regret that pander. Then you reverse that pander by pandering to the opposing group.
Pandering is an art form.
Jack Harris Sep 16, 9:35 a.m.
Mr. Stein should study history as to what the Civil War was really about, of course now he just bends with the wind each tie something comes up!
David McCabe Sep 15, 10:57 a.m.
Looks like poor Scotty is triggered today. Sorry for your feelings...
Deborah Turner Sep 15, 10:52 a.m.
We regret having an Attorney General that shifts like the wind.
Scott Patterson Sep 14, 1:07 p.m.
Great do something about it... take these trash participation awards down.
Phillip Luther Sep 14, 8:12 a.m.
I thought he made a great decision the first time. No one has the right to delete our history whether your proud of it or if it upsets you. Offended people need to realize, their view is not the only one
Donnie Dietrich Sep 14, 7:46 a.m.
And then he becomes governor. We had a great gov., and now we have a male Hilary.
Sherri Steve Gillikin Sep 14, 6:53 a.m.
Surprise, surprise. The second gutless wonder in a row holding office as AG in NC. Guess he has the same ambitions as the last useless AG we had.
Rudy Bizzell Sep 14, 6:34 a.m.
Well he should resign nothing but a move to continue his political ambition.
Robert Swiger Sr. Sep 14, 5:10 a.m.
Impeach him and let's get an AG with some guts
Teddy Fowler Sep 14, 4:55 a.m.
and we regret him....
Jeffrey Derry Sep 13, 11:55 p.m.
Throw this guy out next election.....pure pandering
William Sherman Sep 13, 11:31 p.m.
Interesting how in 2015 he supported the passage of the state monuments law without hesitation or reservation. Oh but now he sings a different opera---directed by political correctness, and a desire to enlist as many new democratic voters as he can get regardless of his trashing the honor and respect due those who fought in the war on both sides. Not praising or enshrineing the war or its cause but respecting the men who fought it. The Japanese honor the men who fought in WW II--not the war itself, but the men who served. No difference. And what about the African Americans who honor the Buffaloe soldiers who fought against the Indians?
have the politically correct germs forgotten those men??
