Good posture forgives a multitude of sins.

Confederate Virginia Governor McDonnell is right!

The US Civil war wasn’t about slavery. There were complex political, economic, and social differences between the North and South.

Political differences: In most Southern states it was legal to own slaves, in most Northern states it was not.

Economic differences: The South’s was based on large slave-powered plantations, the North’s on factories.

Social differences: In the South there was more support for slavery than in the North.

See? Nothing to do with it at all.

So we should, obviously, honor these visionaries who attempted to overthrow the lawful government of the USA.

Let me know if I’m not being sarcastic enough.
