0Icky0: Bernoo: Not so proud of that, but from his side of the family, it so happens that Thomas Jefferson is my first cousin.

You should be very proud that you are so goddamn old that you have the same grandparents as Jefferson.


I'm younger than you, big motorcycle boy.

NowhereMon: Lsherm: That said, it sounds like a bunch of 19th century white guys imitating a Native American war cry

Pretty much this. Kinda sad really considering the high regard with which tea baggers and rednecks hold the confederacy.


And it is equally sad the high regard the OWS and progressives hold Marx.

No, they aren't first-cousins...it's just that Jefferson is his first cousin. Before this, everyone in his family tree had been only children.

Not only that, but they were very gracious and not a bunch of butthurt losers.

Anyone who'd seen any significant action in the civil war and lived is not going to be particularly nostalgic about it. Well, the sane ones, anyway.


And not every Southerner supported secession.

Gwendolyn: That was incredibly cool. Although I bet it sounded fiercer when they were young men and smoke and bullets were flying.


I hope so, because if I'd heard that, my biggest problem would have been not being able to aim because I was laughing.
