  • General Robert E. Lee's Birthday

    I think it is damn nice of our employers to make this a three day weekend to celebrate General Robert E Lee's birthday.

    Lee, Robert E(dward) Born January 19, 1807 (1807-70), brilliant Confederate general, whose military genius was probably the greatest single factor in keeping the Confederacy alive through the four years of the American Civil War.

      The only birthday I knew about this weekend is Martin Luther King, Jr.

                Nope I live in the COLD north. I lived for about 1 1/2 years in North Carolina...(Ft. Bragg)

                I posted the General Lee holiday topic as a politically humorous tongue in cheek curious factoid about General Lee's birthday. I kind of figured it would spur some southern flag waving but it didn't. I guess those South of the Mason Dixon line figured to leave it alone.

                I know many will always see the Confederacy and view General Robert E. Lee as an symbol of slavery, even though history clearly disproves this as not being the main
                issue surrounding the Civil War. Just as the Confederate flag is perceived to be a symbol of slavery, so does the Civil War have the misinformed distinction as being a war over slavery.

                Dr. MLK was a very principled man. He died as a result of his convictions. He is one of numerous black men that fought to bring equality to our nation. I believe that if MLK were alive today, there would be much more moderation in the dialog, and our race relationships we now see in this country would be minimized. Many of the influential black leaders that emerged from his shadow, seem to have display disingenuous egos that have hindered the process and may have actually exacerbated the race issues through their own self serving interests .

                  Joseph - There are a few of us Yankees around here.

                  Today was a holiday in California in honor of Dr. King. Since I am retired, holidays are no longer as exciting as they once were. Do you suppose that means I didn't like my job? If you do, you're right.

                    Guard Dog you are right, MLK was a great man and i agree with you that alot of Black Leaders today tend to seek fame and fortune for themselves, rather than trying to improve race relations and really gearing themselves to maintain the dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King. And also i would like to hook-up with you when i come to Chicago. I was there in May doing a Jenny Jones show, will be coming bakc out this spring i think, stay safe
