Honor Our Dead

So, the Mecklenburg Politburo is yet again imposing its will on the people through lies, deceit and subterfuge. Comrade Syfert has issued her dictum. The flag is to come down. The special interest race baiters win again. But what is a trivial little thing like death and honor anyway? The clamor of the offense-takers drowns [...]

Pol.Correct Note

A note on Political Correctness from a member of our Armed Services As a member of the armed services in Europe, I only get a tiny bit of news from home. If not for the internet, I would not have heard of your plight with the schools in Georgia. I was stationed in South Carolina [...]

Liberty

  Liberty From: reb1507@yahoo.com I have been reflecting on what my Southern heritage means to me. I wonder what my 3rd great grandfather would have answered if asked the same question. There are no records left behind detailing how he felt when he surrendered with the 37th Virginia. Nothing passed down to his daughter about [...]

To Young Southern Men

Have you ever wondered why we’re taught to be ashamed of our heritage? Think about it. When you hear a Southern accent on TV or in the movies, isn’t it usually some sort of redneck joke or caricature? Even the Simpsons have their own redneck jester, Cleatus, to look really stupid. Have you ever questioned [...]
