In Topic: Honor in the American South

29 June 2016 - 09:47 AM

A lot of this is stuff is echoed in a book called Attack and Die by Grady McWhiney, who was a history prof at the University of Alabama.

Long story short: Whereas the northern colonies were founded primarily by the middle and lower class, the south was colonized primarily by aristocrats fleeing Cromwell's Puritan revolution. That resulted in massive societal and economic differences between the two regions, differences which led to profound differences on the battlefield. The south could have won the Civil War if it had simply dug in and defended itself--they wouldn't have been nearly as susceptible to supply chain woes and materiel shortages, but their sense of honor demanded that they go forth and conquer their foe..

Yep.  It helps that we only pay Kiffin ~$700k. U$C picks up the rest of his salary for another year or two.

So this fall, they'll be paying Kiffin to beat their ass.

Yes, political correctness is an artificial invention that is used as cover to allow the unthinkable to become mainstream.

No one is willing to just speak the truth and deal with the consequences anymore. We celebrate the absurd and mock the norm. When kids don't understand the difference in consequences between getting your feeling hurt and being murdered it's time to change the rhetoric.
Regardless of what the right wing sound machine says, political correctness is not he root cause of our woes. For that matter neither is Common Core, the designated hitter, or fluoridation. They are useful decoys, though.

This nation has serious problems--I suspect we can at least agree on that. But an empty suit who is quick to tell you what you want to hear is not the answer.

If Trump can change the tone, even to a much less version it's a start.
Please supply the missing adjective.
