There's a town in North Carolina that is the county seat that has a law from the 1800's that is still on the books as valid that allows a man to beat his wife between the time of 12:00 and 12:01 PM to beat his wife without being prosecuted as long as they reside in that county at the time of the beating.

Vile huh? There's some real backassward folks in this world..always have been and always will be.

cite source plz ?
i'm skeptical...

But this seems to be a way for him to compromise our freedom of speech, sending names and addresses to the sherif for openions, isnt there some law against that? Not that it matters because people with that powere get off easy, just like this local cop that got busted showing porn to teenagers and toutching them just got 3 years probation. I will find a link supporting this later, but right now i have to cook dinner for the family :) probably later tonight when the little one falls asleep

there's a big difference between his giving his opinion
and a child molester-
that's a cheap shot imo .
i reckon this guy is as entitled to his opinion
just as much as anyone else,
and he has free speech too
so i reckon he's within his rights.
don't have to agree with him,
and no need to kill him either.
just another asshole sharing this planet with me.

Columbus County, NC

The city is named Whiteville, interesting enough.

The archives in the court house is my source..I don't have an internet one to provide.

I have done some antiquing, tomb stone charcoals and other explorations like town halls and county seat library's in the old tobacco regions of the south..lots of history, civil war stuff, still standing plantation houses with slave shacks and all that shit. Pretty interesting stuff.

in the same respect people like that should not be allowed to hold a political office, just too extreme.


um, he won an election- majority rule and all that.
how can you say he should not be allowed ?
isn't that like iran's clerics who decide which candidates are acceptable
or even the communists who give us a list of a few candidates all from the same party ?
what we all need to be concerned about
is not one redneck politician
but rather the mentality that elected him.

That is the real problem.

I think it's the culture in the south..The south was always equated with a liberal, largely bi partisan to the left side region. That's not true anymore in my estimation...there's more per capita poor people by far.T

The ones with the money are pretty conservative, always have been since the start. Prejudice against color and creed still, I think.

IMO once the states rights were lost in the civil war the voting pop increased as a result of the FED trying to gain power so the elected officials weren't and aren't elected by the ones who really make the decisions. There's still old money, lots of it..the ones who get elected don't come out of the fields these days.

poverty isn't 'southern culture'-
it's a result of the union's over-running the south in war
followed by a decade of occupation under federal military administration
followed by a century of neglect by federal authorities where money was concerned.
the south still bears its' scars to this day.
still largely neglected from the federal fiscal pie,
only texas and florida are treated as equals-
and that only for the valuable real estate there.
still treated as 2nd class citizens by the fellow Americans too,
defined by stereotype even in pop culture movies.
even here i see regular smears against the south,
3 so far in just this thread.

I think poverty is "southern culture".

The majority is poor and always have been..even when this country was formed the money from the "old world" money from England snapped up this land and their descendants still own alot of it. The majority where either indentured servants to the crown or slaves. The money to leave oppressiveness came from the place the colonists were trying to escape from in the first place, the oppressors.

People still get born and die in the south, in the same town all the time still..right now. Never move away from their birthplace.

Culture has to be what one is taught and perceives as knowledge which is a reflection of how that knowledge has been transmitted and how it is transmitted.

happens in new england too, california, everywhere.
poverty ?
i've seen barefoot children living in a village of rusty broken down cars
in the desert, barely 100 miles from san diego.
anything you can say about the south
is true elsewhere as well.
the south didn't ban drugs all by itself either.

The point I am trying to make is that there is alot more 'old money' here. The "influential name" still has political power and the local politicians from 'good' failies have been and still are running the place locally and the stream goes up. It's not the same as metro area poverty. The poor folks vote there, they have been living on farms or country by farms for generations..small ones and still live healthy, pay their taxes (other than the much loved barter)and believe in America..the land of the free and all that good stuff. The majority vote is higher low class-lower middle class as opposed to the ratio of "have and have nots" that other regions in the US have.

People without are pretty damn conservative..

some are conservative about some issues,
not so much on others.
but when you're talking about a hundred million people
spread from texas to virginia
no stereotype holds true.
tell some metrosexual in houston that he's rural and he'll laugh.
they'd laugh in miami and atlanta too.
the last few decades
as the northern states turned into the rust belt
the southern sunbelt states have make great progress.

I guess I missed my idea. I could be wrong..I have been before. Donuts to dollars say's that old money runs the south allot more than any other region and the south's metro areas are a result of the region being run by old money?

Metro sexual folks, gay folks, hippies, stone'rs..add as many classifications as you want with bigotry in them and you will find that bigotry is more prevalent per capita in the south because they really have never had to adapt to different not by prevalent anyhow.
