    This is good news. Ray McBerry is a good guy and a strong conservative. He was a Ron Paul supporter.

    Given the limited options in GA–I’d at least consider voting for him.

    Weird.

    Yeah, but those puppies are big enough to have names!

    I tried to counsel Jason that “flaggots” is highly insensitive. Something I thought his oh so PC and moderate self would attempt to avoid. Oh well.

    Paulie,

    The “tv show” is dedicated to one county in Georgia (Henry County) on local access. I know because I lived there for 13 years and went on a couple times to discuss local politics, though McBerry wasn’t the host at the time.

    I don’t personally dislike McBerry, but his associations with the League of the South and other neo-confederate as well as his desire to see the 1956 Georgia flag represent our state again groups bothers me a great deal.

    Jason, as I mentioned on the other website, you describe yourself as a libertarian. So as a libertarian you should support the concept of secession. Am I correct? So your problem with the League of the South would be what? That the SPLC says nasty things about them?

    I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell ya!

    So…is the woman in the commercial Mr. McBerry’s wife, girlfriend, daughter, sister, cousin, or other relative?

    And before some smart ass chimes in with “all of the above,” that is not funny.

    Not all libertarians support the concept of secession. Many do, but some do not.

    Of those who support secession as a general idea, there are still nevertheless many that do not glorify the actual historical Confederate States of America, or wish to see a rematch.

    I’ll grant, however, that there are some that do and would.

    I know that paulie. I am trying to smoke him out. I think he is a cosmo.

    I have no idea who it is. It’s a commercial that maybe 100 people will see because that’s about all that watch the show.

    I dont think most libertarians have a proplem with secssion but if you think Mcberry is the one to lead it your wrong. He is to tied up with the old south. I would succeed from the the feds but not to for a Georgia that would loke like Georgia pre 1861. BTW I also lived in Henry for 10 years and still own a rental house there and I have never watched this show.

    BJ Mathis hosted it until last year, Doug. It comes on only on Charter cable.

    Are these guys talking about 1956 or 1856?

  15. paulie cannoli paulie cannoli January 18, 2009

    As best I can understand it, the implicit threat here is that the advocates of taking Georgia back to 1856 or 1956 (take your pick) will take to the forest with muskets and buckets of chicken, or something like that. Very confusing.

    If I had lived in New York in 1861, I would have wound up in a Union prison for opposing Lincoln’s invasion of a foreign country. If I had lived in Georgia in 1861, I would have wound up in a Confederate prison for opposing slavery.

    Both Lincoln’s union and the Confederacy were tyrannical, despotic regimes. Neither had any moral right to exist.

    Exactly.

    You’re absolutely right, Rocky.

    If you were born in MD or any other state under U.S. military occupation, Rocky Eades, you could have been jailed simply for wearing red. I assure you, however, you would not have been jailed in the south for being anti-slavery. At most, 6% of Southerners owned slaves. All we wanted was to be left alone.

  20. Rex Rex June 10, 2009

    No, you wouldn’t be jailed in the South for being anti-slavery, silly. Are you that really that biased and mis-informed? (read ignorant) And they try to call us dumb!

    Well he’s still running for the Republican Party’s nomination, so we won’t endorse him.

    When I read posts like those I see here I am reminded again why America is in the shape its in.

    Because there is so damn many idiots who formulate words and phrases just because it sounds cool to do so,who really have no freakin clue what they are saying or what it really means.

    Ignorance is America’s most expensive commodity. How about getting your heads out of your asses and out of the TV screens and read some history and reflect on it awhile.

    Boneheads.

    McBerry is my man for Gov by God.

    Are there are a lot of black folks in the Southern Party of Georgia? Or Hispanics? Just curious.
