YOU stand as one of the few voices of reason, & of THE TRUTH, in a world that chooses to put on blinders, & throw a wet blanket over anything that even "offends" them ... for whatever petty reason that they may have!!

Debbie Smithson - 10/29/2010 Status Comment It is a crying shame that we have such ignorant people sitting on the bench. We must continue the fight for the truth to be exposed so that our children and grandchildren can wave the Confederate flag with Honor and Dignity it is our heritage and our right as Southeners to do so.

Confederate records found By Carole Hawkins Staff Writer Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2010 Daphne Hopson, clad in white gloves, slowly opened the document. It was amber with age and slightly lighter along the creases where transparent tape once kept it from tearing. "I don't want to hurt it," she said. Spidery handwriting inside revealed it was a muster roll from the Thomson Guards, a McDuffie County company that had been part of the [...]

The interpretation of those events, however, are as malleable as a lump of clay.
