But a student faxed Feinsilver a handout from that class, led by a guest lecturer, the Rev. Herman White, an SCV member. The handout, "The role of Blacks in the War for Southern Independence," included information that Feinsilver was certain he had never learned about the Civil War. "I thought a few people might be interested in what was being taught," he says. Feinsilver was drawn in particular to two items--he wondered whether they should be taught in a public building and whether two ex-teachers taking the course should be able to use it to keep their teaching credentials current:
? According to "The Slave Narratives," testimonies collected in the 1930s, "more than 70 percent of ex-slaves had only good experiences to report about their life as a slave in the south...."
? White provided three accounts by Northerners to back a claim that many blacks freely, faithfully and willingly fought for the South.
But since Feinsilver hadn't attended the class, he thought he might not have the story. He made sure he attended another class, just so he could ask Perdue and White if what he'd read in the handout and heard from other students was true. He expected denials.
"I talked to Jack and Herman," says Feinsilver, "and said, 'I'm looking at all these notes and it sounds like what you are saying is that slaves, in general, were fine with being slaves?' They did not say, 'No, no, no. Don't put that in the paper.' They said that this is the side of the story that's not being told because it's not politically correct." Feinsilver concluded that White and Perdue believed a vast majority was fine with being slaves. "I kept going back to this question. I was trying to make sure that I wasn't misunderstanding them by asking them several times."
White argued that if the slaves were unhappy, they could have fled during the Civil War because most adult men were off fighting, says Feinsilver.

I understand you are fine with taking that single source (a single article from ajr.com) from the net for your information.... why don't you take a gander at the first couple of google results in addition to the rest that follow before you form a definitive opinion?

I'm off to work... you let me know when you decide to have an original thought

These "secessionists" are just people trying to let off steam. They're frustrated and feel like their side lost the election because of dirty tactics. Not much different than the people who bitched and complained after Bush's two wins.


right... the people that were told that they supported terrorists, were anti-american and were told to "love it or leave it?"

yea, i remember that... the cycle has just switched gears, nothing's different... unless you take it personally...

The Country of Texas Before you read this, please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union . (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.) And realize that if Texas ever decides to leave, you can bet than many other states will follow. Goodby to the USA as we know it. Don't sit there and say this won't ever happen -- it is an honestly real possibility, given the absolute broken state of politics in the us today.

We Texans love y'all, but we'll probably have to take action if Barack Obama wins the election. We'll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas . You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven't had another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.

3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don't know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas -again we have all we need, and it's too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....

6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care -We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employees over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University ofTexas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University of Dallas , University of Houston , Baylor, UNT ( University of North Texas ), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn't restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas , it's a Right to Work State and, therefore, it's every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don't like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers.

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States , and twenty- three of the 100 largest cities in the United States, are located in Texas. And Texas also has more land than California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas.

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don't need to. You see, nothing rusts in Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and don't have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama: Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications. You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

Signed, The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about! SLEEP WELL TONIGHT - THE EYES OF TEXAS ARE UPON YOU!!


...this was an email sent to me. thought i would share.

lol it's cute that they think they'll keep all of those federal programs if they secede.

NASA would move to Huntsville where it was originally intended to be until LBJ moved it to his home town.

well that's neat. i've never seen causality implied between three things that have absolutely nothing to do with each other in one sentence before.

maybe someone should have emailed that fun little list to rick perry last year. then he would have known about the massive amount of human and material capital he could have tapped to help get the 2011 wildfires under control instead of crying to washington for more aid:

also texas is a net eater with a 1.5:1 ratio of federal dollars received to taxes paid out:

really the wingnut militia types might get a hard on talking about seceding and rising up against an overreaching fed or whatever but the fact of the matter is their elected officials know who's going to come wipe their ass the next time they get bitchslapped by a hurricane, flood, or tornado outbreak.
