Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday that states should decide whether to remove their Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol, and said he believes more monuments should be built to celebrate those who have helped the U.S. progress.

"I hold the view that it's important that we remember our past and build on the progress that we've made," Pence told Fox News. "[In] the United States Capitol, every state is able to donate two statues to commemorate citizens they want to be remembered in the heart of our government. States can make those decisions."

"What we have to walk away from is the desire by some to erase parts of our history just in the name of some contemporary political cause," he said.

Gamblers are betting on a fairly easy re-election bid for President Trump in 2020

Via Billy


It's still a long way off, but gamblers are betting on a fairly easy re-election bid for President Trump in 2020 against rising Democrats including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and former first lady Michelle Obama.

The gambling site Betonline.ag puts Trump's odds at 5 to 2, the best of over a dozen potential candidates.

What's more, they aren't betting for Trump to be impeached or lose his Twitter account.
However, bettors are hedging, picking Vice President Mike Pence as their second favorite in the 2020 presidential race.

"Trump is currently a 5/2 favorite to win. Mike Pence (6/1) and Elizabeth Warren (10/1) are close behind with Michelle Obama and Bernie Sanders both sitting at 16/1 odds to win. [Sen.] Kamala Harris and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg are now listed at 20/1. [House Speaker] Paul Ryan is 28/1," the betting website told Secrets.

Po-Dunk: The Current Kid Rock Campaign Video

Nationalism In Po-Dunk – PA Kid Rock’s people in rural Michigan are giving the middle finger to the conservatives who had stabbed them in the back, and to the liberals who want them blended out of existence. “Po-Dunk” follows the same angry current as that of Michigan’s other native son, Michael Moore, who featured those same people in his unintentionally pro-Trump campaign video. Did you forget about Moore’s “Biggest Fuck You in Human History”? I didn’t.
Yes, on November 8, you — Joe Blow, Steve Blow, Bob Blow, Billy Blow, Billy-Bob Blow, all the Blows — get to go and blow up the whole goddamned system because it’s your right. Trump’s election is going to be the biggest “Fuck You” ever recorded in human history and it will feel good. — Michael Moore

Momma looking good in some jeans all ripped
Got a baby in her belly and a baby on her hip
Little towheaded rascal peeing off the porch
Daddy got a shotgun looking for a stork
(Oh Lord)

And that’s po (po) dunk (dunk)
Don’t give a flying hillbilly fuck
I said po (po) dunk (dunk)
House full of youngins and a yard full of junk
Love us if you can, sorry if you can’t
Holla if you is, shut up if you ain’t
Po-oh-oh-oh-whoaoh, po-dunk!

Bible by the bed and a bottle sitting pretty
Pigskin on the TV, bacon in a skillet
An old mutt in the yard licking on an itch
Bunch of fake flamingos flocking by the ditch
(Can I get a witness?)

And that’s po (po) dunk (dunk)
Don’t give a flying hillbilly fuck
I said po (po) dunk (dunk)
A yard full of chickens and a barn full of drunks
Love us if you can, sorry if you can’t
Holla if you is, shut up if you ain’t
Po-oh-oh-oh-whoaoh, po-dunk!


Put your adult beverage over your head
If you’re bat shit crazy and your neck is red
As the dirt on the road where we all grew up
Sing something with me if you ain’t nothing but…
(You ain’t nothing but, you ain’t nothing but…)

Po (po) dunk (dunk)
Don’t give a flying hillbilly fuck
I said po (po) dunk (dunk)

Confederate statue debate moves west on horseback

Via Billy

Well, it’s about time.

After some Confederate statue-topplings, but before any Confederate book burnings, California protesters are now targeting a horse. A beautiful Arabian.

The creature’s unforgivable crime? His name is similar to the horse ridden by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee 152 years ago, Traveler. Only Lee’s horse used two L’s–Traveller.

The Ten Causes Of The War Between The States

Map of the Confederacy

Repost NamSouth 2010

 Historians have long debated the causes of the war and the Southern perspective differs greatly from the Northern perspective. Based upon the study of original documents of the War Between The States (Civil War) era and facts and information published by Confederate Veterans, Confederate Chaplains, Southern writers and Southern Historians before, during, and after the war, I present the facts, opinions, and conclusions stated in the following article.

Technically the 10 causes listed are reasons for Southern secession. The only cause of the war was that the South was invaded and responded to Northern aggression.

I respectfully disagree with those who claim that the War Between the States was fought over slavery or that the abolition of slavery in the Revolutionary Era or early Federal period would have prevented war. It is my opinion that war was inevitable between the North and South due to complex political and cultural differences. The famous Englishman Winston Churchill stated that the war between the North and South was one of the most unpreventable wars in history. The Cause that the Confederate States of America fought for (1861-1865) was Southern Independence from the United States of America. Many parallels exist between the War for American Independence (1775-1783) and the War for Southern Independence.

There were 10 political causes of the war (causes of Southern Secession) ---one of which was slavery--- which was a scapegoat for all the differences that existed between the North and South. The Northern industrialists had wanted a war since about 1830 to get the South's resources (land-cotton-coal-timber-minerals) for pennies on the dollar. All wars are economic and are always between centralists and decentralists. The North would have found an excuse to invade the South even if slavery had never existed.

A war almost occurred during 1828-1832 over the tariff when South Carolina passed nullification laws. The U.S. congress had increased the tariff rate on imported products to 40% (known as the tariff of abominations in Southern States). This crisis had nothing to do with slavery. If slavery had never existed --period--or had been eliminated at the time the Declaration of Independence was written in 1776 or anytime prior to 1860 it is my opinion that there would still have been a war sooner or later.

On a human level there were 5 causes of the war--New England Greed-New England Radicals--New England Fanatics--New England Zealots--and New England Hypocrites. During "So Called Reconstruction" ( 1865-1877 ) the New England Industrialists got what they had really wanted for 40 years--THE SOUTH'S RESOURCES FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR. It was a political coalition between the New England economic interests and the New England fanatics and zealots that caused Southern secession to be necessary for economic survival and safety of the population.
