    I concur. And make a friendly recommendation to read Sinclair Lewis' "Kingsblood Royal," which, while not "great," is pretty entertaining and involves this very subject!

    However, the Mixed Race Card as it applies to PH refers to those that indemnify themselves from their racists opinions by mentioning their mixed race family credentials. Of course, nobody can confirm how the "differently raced" family members feel about the PH member.

    Notice? You said "U.S. Constitution"....he tried to change it to "Obama". Get him to declare his loyalty to the U.S. Constitution....he won't.....not without "caveats".

    I assumed that you knew my original comment about it was tongue-in-cheek. It's a trope dreamed up by a local radio personality. BUT...there are a lot of guys with those names who get into "provincial" trouble.

    A military officer....

    who led a foreign nation in a bloody 4 year war against the United States....

    after that nation had launched a surprise attack....

    on a U.S. military installation....

    situated in a harbor?



    Am I talking about -

    A. Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto?

    B. General Robert E. Lee?

    C. Both?

    Obsession with proper Whiteness, Dutch. There was a famous German who succumbed to that disease.

    Since I observe Robert E Lee day, I don't have to give the help the day off. It works better for me.

    This thread is a troll and worthless for honest discussion. The left wing equivalent of a "Michelle Obama has a big butt" thread.

    Lefties want to bitch and whine about the cons doing it, then gleefully slap each other on the back over the same nonsesence.

    You're recommendation is most assuredly accepted.
