Confederate group sets Arkansas rally to show support for preserving monuments August 18, 2017 at 6:06 p.m.

Slak provides only a partial list of socialist countries; he fails to account for the rise of capitalism in countries on his list; and he makes assumptions that are logically weak.
From Money Smarts, Peerform (2012):
The term socialist has been thrown around quite a bit in the past few years. Not since the cold war has the term garnered so much attention in the press and from politicians. But when you look at countries who actually have a socialist economic structure, you can see some similarities to the United States – but there are some really stark differences.

Below, you will see some of the most socialistic nations in the world today:

New Zealand
Despite popular myths, there is very little connection between economic performance and welfare expenditure. Many of the countries on this list are proof of that, such as Denmark and Finland. Even though both countries are more socialistic than America, the workforce remains stronger.

....the USA is on the more capitalist side on the capitalist/socialist scale but we are a mildly socialist country. The fact that our government controls money among other things is a socialist thing. In fact, if it weren't for the government intervening and actively participating in solving the Great Depression, we would probably have never gotten out of it because the free market (capitalist idea) was not working out. A couple more examples would be our military, loans, banks, healthcare, and social security. All set up in a socialist format.
So whether you like it or not, you live in a partially socialist country.

Confederate group sets Arkansas rally to show support for preserving monuments August 18, 2017 at 5:52 p.m.

A message making the rounds since last election seems an appropriate response to those wanting to remember the Confederacy: "They lost....get over it."

Even Fox News? August 18, 2017 at 3:06 p.m.

Even RedState, the ultimate conservative blog, called Trump's term as president so far a failure and that was before the disastrous Charlottesville comments. Below is a link to that article and here is the conclusion they wrote:
"That’s leadership. Through the first six months of Trump’s presidency, he’s exhibited none. That is his failure alone."

And yet sometimes facts say nothing and opinions say everything.

Tell us what major legislation your House & Senate have passed; tell us why your Republican-led Congress has lowest approval rating; tell us why your Republican prez has lowest approval ratings ever and has told lies on a daily basis ever since running for office and being in office; tell us why he would say that Nazis and White Supremacists are nice guys.
Losers in power are still losers. The GrOPe party is a prime example. Know nothings and do worse types trying to deal with a demagogue that they unfortunately got elected. I'm willing to bet that history will label the 45th POTUS' term as "The Trump Disaster."
Many Republicans are already distancing themselves from the WH circus debacle, the constant flip-flopping fiasco of Trump said this but meant that switcheroo, and the national tragedy that has arisen because his sycophants think his ascension to office gives them carte blanche to run roughshod over rights and over citizens.
Yep. You buy a loser, you get a loser. And Trump is a loser.

Charter members August 18, 2017 at 10:31 a.m.

The editor asks that we "reason together" then doesn't heed his own advice. Same old message erupts: charters good, public schools bad.
No research, no data, no balanced comparisons, no admission that charters are getting rubber-stamped by the Walton-picked board members with no proof submitted by them regarding their comments and performance. Just empty promises and a lot of Walton money. Perfect combination for an editor who specializes in writing hit pieces for his masters.
Just remember that charters are nothing more than businesses seeking to profit from your children, scamming the taxpayers, playing with a stacked deck, often failing or refusing to educate those most in need, and some allowed to continue raking in the money even though they fail year after year after year despite all their advantages.
Meanwhile LRSD schools are increasing their scores and the State Board refuses to let parents and the community have their schools back. The Waltons wouldn't like that. It stops their plans to steal children for their own profits.
When the editor asks you to reason together he really means just agree with me and don't look at what's really happening with public schools and to public schools.

GOP leaders blast racial hate; few call out Trump over his remarks August 17, 2017 at 9:17 p.m.

Forget the little pig, PM. He thinks standing with Nazis and anti-semites and white supremacists is OK as long as you keep your mouth shut. He's just another nice guy showing his support for the public lynch mob they've organized. Real decent fellow, ya know.....
Not once will he mention to those he's standing with that their chants are racist, cruel, and evil. Too nice to offend such folks. So honorable and caring.

Or maybe it's because he either supports such rot or he's just a stinkin' coward.
And such a nice guy....really.....if you'll just put some blinders on and ignore the twisted b*st*rds around him.

Confederate monuments: Trump says history 'being ripped apart'; Stonewall Jackson kin says take them down August 17, 2017 at 4:53 p.m.

By LR55's dim lights, anything as long as or longer than RBear's comment (222 words) is foolish. Which indicates the following documents/writings are idiocy according to LR55:
Matthew, Chapter 5 (Sermon on the Mount chapter) - 1081 words
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address - 271 words
Recent ADG article on Frank Broyles by Bob Holt - 1545 words
US Declaration of Independence (including title) - 1337 words
Bill of Rights in the US Constitution - 462 words

What LR55 has proven is that he can pen something totally stupid in only 5 words.
Why, one must conclude, that the less LR55 says, the closer he gets to his true IQ!!
(One must pause and wonder if it's possible the average Razorback fan is able to read anything whatsoever about his/her favorite pigskin team or if they have to take it one or two paragraphs per hour.....)

In Germany there are no statues to generals who served the Nazi regime. None whatsoever. There is no waving of the Nazi flag - it is reviled. They do not obfuscate the evil done under this banner.

Slavery remains one of the key roots of the war. Ignoring it is ignoring history, something which you say is reprehensible. It is the the horrible stain which can never be washed out of the fabric of Confederate history and the flag which represents such beliefs. White supremacy was then and remains now an evil which needs to be treated like a terrible disease - quarantine and cure.
