    sorry, we changed streams on you. Grant was also a very poor president who was bullied by his own cabinet and couldn't get anything useful done and the whole country fell into corruption as a result. but as a GENERAL, he was amazing, so we switched gears to compare him to another general with was kind of a glamour puss.

    Well that and they were the ruling party while the confederacy were in fact REBELLING against them, for all the wrong reasons.
    Hmm. It's almost like this was inspired by real events and things that influenced Lucas and others while growing up...

    Grant's failure as president can still be felt today. Incredible isn't it?
    There's still an intense divide between the north and the south in America today. Not even along racial lines, just geographical. He failed with Reconstruction and basically destroyed southern economies and his successors didn't help. This lead to a TON of the issues that were prevalent in the civil rights fights in the 60s.

    We're getting a bit off track, but I hate how Star Wars is embraced by conspiracy theorists and cringey anarchists because of its themes of rebellion.

    Apparently Alex Jones was a huge fan of Rogue One :eek:

    works for the FO too, doesn't it? they're basically the early KKK, destroying everything out of an impotent rage rather than an actual ideology that makes any sense.

    It does.
    They are the beginning of every hate-based party in history.

    Gotta let the fringes fringe man. lol

    Alex Jones thinks he's the woke one in every sci-fi movie that knows what's really going on but no one listens to.
    In reality. He's Jar Jar with followers.

    Grant and Sherman! I'm a bit of a history buff who happens to be from the South. I've read both of autobiographies of Sherman/Grant. Bother were exceptional tacticians. Sherman's march is infamous in the South, but it was necessary.

    Grant eventually became president and his legacy has suffered over time, however modern historians are reevaluating his presidency and his legacy is improving.
    This has been a common thought... some of this is due to the romanticism of the South in the early twentieth century. Reconstruction started before Grant became president and can largely be blamed on the previous president. I need to read Charles W. Calhoun's recent book about Grant, but haven't had time.

    K way off topic. Back to Star Wars.

    Typical personnal attack when you got nothing to answer. No blame, you do what you can do.

    It’s not a personal attack, it’s a comment on your condensating tone you’ve taken on to me/others.

    Read our exchange back if you need clarification.

    Happy not to engage you further.

    @Juniper, @Bandini: it's all good; we're just goofing around here.

    back to the topic, i still think people are underestimating Hux.

    part of this is because the EU paints a broader picture of Hux's story than the movies have presented and you see his doggedness and his viciousness and all the "cur" qualities Snoke exploited in him--and you know all of that is going to surface with a vengeance now that he's been brought low and, worse yet, put under the rule of someone like Ren.

    i predict Hux is going to go down fighting and it's going to be nasty.
