    I do dislike removing individual means of expression. I could care less who calls me a name on here. I can take up for myself. I have no issue with people giving MAT grief for what he posts.

He makes if very clear what he wants to be thought of on here... and people can take it or leave it.

    Again... I do not want anyone censored. Even Hawk... the vile one... should be allowed to exercise his demons on here. I'm not afraid. I do fear censorship. It will eventually require blood shedding. It absolutely always does.
    I never wanted to be the villian.. They made me this way

    I didn't take it as disrespect so no problem at all. I don't like censorship either but I do like to be respectful even more so with fellow Cajun Fans. I sent Mat a note to let him know that. It's all good. Tell your Dad I said thanks for his service!!!

Zeebart, I would be proud to sit next to you this Saturday and invite you to join me as I kneel for our nation's anthem (just kidding, I don't do that but it really doesn't bother me. What bothers me is people leaving hats on and walking, talking, texting behaving obliviously to the anthem.)
    There is no cure for your delusion.

    Virtually everything that has been done in the name of 'progress' since 1964, has degraded the lives of Americans of all races. Our working poor have been legislated out of any possibility of improving their lot in life by such well meaning legislation as child labor laws, minimum wage laws, occupational health and safety laws, worker's compensation laws and other similar legislation. Our public assistance programs universally discourage responsible behavior by the poor, thus locking generations of people in a seemingly inescapable trap.

    The middle class, largely a product of the post WWI boom, hardened in the fire of the Depression, annealed by the blood of heroes in WWII, is now endangered by the entitlement society that taxes them disproportionately to support those who have been taught not to work.

    As another poster said previously, every measure of civilized society has declined immeasurably in my lifetime; largely as a result of misguided attempts by government to 'help' people.

    If you think this is "better", then you are hopelessly deluded.

    I like Hawk. Like everyone on here sometimes he's right sometimes he wrong. I find his post to very entertaining and I get his humor. But I can also see Turbines point of view. He knows words do not physically hurt people, but you do not want this place turning into a ____ hole where you can't even have a debate about a Cajuns topic without it going to ____. I have been to those types of sites and I have seen sites devolve to that level and they suck, alot of good people leave. I don't want to see this site turn into that .

    I guess our family was blessed. Of the 5 that went to WW2, 4 made it home. None of them never spoke of it and all 5 were proud to have served.

    T brought up the depression. That's a whole other topic.

The greatest among us transcend the prevailing evils of their time, the greatest among us were too often in the minority and reviled by the majority but triumphed in spite of it. There are real lessons to learn from our nation's history. I stand by my claim that we are blessed to be in the greatest nation, at the most fortunate time, and embrace the opportunity to build an even brighter future. I have faith in America and my children. I serve God and respect my country and I don't answer to you.
    Sorry, the Greatest Generation did that.

    My dad was in the first integrated Ranger battalion in the US Army in 1945. My boss at my first job after college owed his life 50 times over to Red Tailed P-51 Mustangs flown by black airmen escorting his B-24 Liberator from Sicily through the Brunner Pass en route to bombing Germany. The largely Asian Hawaii National Guard fought alongside the Texas National Guard, composed largely of Scots and Hispanics, in Italy, and was the most decorated unit in WWII. The Navaho code talkers were instrumental in our victory in the Pacific.

    Was it perfect, not at all. But it was the beginning of an integrated military, which by the time I served in 1969-1972 was indeed colorblind.

    Btw, I'm not the religious type, but I'm pretty sure god is a conservative. (Surely isn't running around calling people racist and the like). But that's just the rumor I hear..
    Our society is great. I don't take it for granted. Misogyny and racism are ignorant, the less prevalent they are in society the better. If liberals corner the market on this belief then I'm pretty sure Christ is a liberal, in fact Christ may be the original bleeding heart liberal. But on a different note, just do your best and I'll do mine. If you reexamine all this I almost sort of defended you that your use of "bastard" wasn't that big of a deal as compared to your using slang for a female's genitalia as an insult. Maybe we can agree that our nation has still some room for improvement even if we don't agree on how or why? We're really fortunate we have time to waste on any of this, fortunately I'm out of time for today.

    Amen to that, VOb. My grandpa was in the Pacific with the Army. My wife's grandpa was a POW in Germany. Saved his whole POW group by being able to understand french language and thwart the Germans from executing them. That generation will never be duplicated. Ever. Thanks for your service...

    Non sports post of the year. Very well done.

    I am NOT a Rush person. I don't listen nor care for him. However, one quote I was told he said years ago is the absolute truth. The purpose of war is to break things and kill people.

    When this country gets backed into a corner, we best get over the PC mess or America is toast. We are still engaged in a PC non declared war since 9/11. It will be a hell of a blow on US soil before we get the intestinal fortitude the greatest generation had. 9/11 didn't do it so wrap your mind around that. And our enemies know this, it's why we are getting little things here and there. Mentally wearing us down the whole time and we're too busy watching Kim and her big butt or waiting on the newest I Phone to realize it.

    Women's rights? Really? Your ignorance is astonishing. The 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote, was ratified On August 18, 1920. It was the crowning achievement of a movement that had been on-going for over 50 years. My mother is 100 years old, and has never in her adult life been denied the right to vote; and she is both female and First Nations. Lest you also forget that at least half of the greatest generation were female, I suggest you take a look at some real history books and learn about the WAAF, and that "Rosie, the Riveter" was not just a slogan invented by government, but a reflection of the reality that millions of women who had never worked outside the home took "men's" jobs in shipyards and foundries and aircraft plants, and that thousands of urban teen age girls moved in with farm families and worked as farm hands because farm boys from all over the country were busy dying so that you could denigrate their memory.

    What generation was it that infected those same black airmen with syphilis as part of unethical human experimentation? When I was born black men could still sacrifice their lives in the military for their country but their children could not yet attend the same schools as their white peers. I don't condemn any generation but the vision is that we continue to transcend generational wrongs. We live in a better world thanks to all those on the continuum of this nation who fought and continue to fight to make it so. The 40's and 50's weren't wonderful for all Americans. What unites all races and all generations is perhaps their equality (even when not mutually acknowledged). Our equality is seen in our propensity for good and unfortunately in our propensity for evil. I belief our nation's purpose is noble even when our method and mechanism has not always been. We grow personally and it is foolish to think that a nation should not as well. Our main disagreement may be that I think we're continuing in the right direction and some of you think we're doomed. I wouldn't go back in the past believing it was a better time.

    I'm not talking about suffrage. The feminist movement of the 1960's and 1970's did much to improve women's rights.

    What's been given to them because they lack a Y chromosome is 79 cents to the dollar of their male counterpart. It's high time those bras get blazing again.

    The answer would be the wealthiest 1%, I'd say we can all agree they have it best of all.

    Women deserve equal pay for equal work. "It's better than it was 10 years ago" doesn't defend your case it proves mine. I'm with you though in that executive pay is out of control, this gap is unconscionable and unsustainable.

    They have profited most from societal injustice. I will always stand up for what is right. In the end what is just, honest and true will prevail. This will probably not occur in our lifetime or this earthly realm, but I believe that which is good will prevail, which gets back to why I mentioned it is not man's bidding that I serve. We were never promised peace on earth and we sure won't find it in this forum.
