Obama could launch another Civil War

One of the Tigers' greatest moments occurred on August 30, 1862, the third day of the Battle of Second Bull Run, (S/B Manassas) when members of the 9th Louisiana Infantry Regiment beat back repeated Union assaults on the Confederate lines, described as follows:

"After successfully breaking up three Union assaults, the Tigers found themselves dangerously short of ammunition. Two men of the 9th Louisiana were dispatched to the rear for more but a fourth Union attack was mounted before they returned. The ensuing clash was 'the ugliest fight of any" claimed Sergeant Stephens. Groping frantically for ammunition among the dead and wounded, the Louisianans were barely able to beat off the determined Yankees, who threw themselves up to the very muzzles of the Tigers' muskets. When the Tigers fired their last round, the flags of the opposing regiments were almost flapping together.

In desperation Lieutenant-Colonel Michael Nolan shouted for the men to make use of the numerous rocks that lay scattered around the embankment. Sensing that the rebels were at the end of their rope, the Yankees were charging up to the base of the embankment when suddenly fist and melon size stones arched out of the smoke that hung over the grade and rained down upon them. "Such a flying of rocks never was seen," claimed one witness, as the Tigers and other nearby Confederates heaved the heavy stones at the surprised federals. Numerous Yankees on the front line were killed by the flying rocks, and many others were badly bruised."
-- From "Lee's Tigers: The Louisiana Infantry in the Army of Northern Virginia" (Louisiana State University Press) by Terry Jones.

**************************
 
President Obama’s looming executive action on immigration reform represents a Fort Sumter-type moment, according to conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly.

Schlafly at first considered comparing the Obama amnesty to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor but decided that Obama’s plan is much more subtle.

“With Pearl Harbor, the American people knew what was happening,” she said.

But Fort Sumter, where the opening shots of the Civil War were fired, represented the beginning of a ruinous conflict, and Schlafly, like fellow conservative luminary Richard Viguerie, speculates that an executive amnesty might touch off a sort of modern-day conflagration.

  1. Resist - The Odds don't matter any more.

    Truer words were never written. It's been the case since the Liar/Traitor usurped the WH, but better late than never. I emailed my congressman, Justin Amash, this morning with that same sentiment. Doesn't matter any more about committee assignments from the traitor Boehner - go Rogue with the few Patriots left in Congress and take it to the People with what is going on - Destruction of a free Nation without any palpable resistance so far.

  4. UNLESS A LONG-STANDING CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS
    IS RESOLVED, THE CONTROVERSY OVER
    ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND "AMNESTY"
    WILL DEGENERATE INTO CIVIL WAR. ABOLISH THE 14TH AMENDMENT.
    It's not legal anyway as it was never properly ratified.

      Correct, but of no concern to the Useful Fools.

  5. When discussing the necessity of an armed revolt to restore our lost republic, a friend of mine (who served with me in the 101st Airborne in Viet Nam) said there will be no revolution until there is no electricity for televisions and pizza.
