The Confederate State of America

Last weekend, Bridgette (121) and I went to go see http://www.csathemovie.com/ . Its a mock BBC Documentary being played for the first time on "Confederate TV". If you are not easily offended I would highly recommend giving it a shot if its playing in a theater near you!

Re: The Confederate State of America

We all understand that you are into this kind of stuff, CD is not a place for this. CD is about robotics and engineering, not what could have happened if the Civil War was won by the wrong side.


I would like to see this closed. I am not offended by it just to see humorious it really is...

And this is also in the Chit-Chat sub-forum. If you look in this sub-forum, you can see plenty of topics on Sports, American Idol, Potato Guns, and a plethora of other subjects.

This thread is no different and there is no reason for it to be removed.

It is in Chit-Chat. This is, after all, home of several other popular threads which don't bear much relation to those subjects.

Besides, I'd be rather surprised if someone tried to turn this into something truly objectionable, by arguing in earnest for the imposition of the South's less noble principles.

Edit: And Mr. Richards beat me to it by mere seconds. The perils of proofreading, indeed.

To play devil's advocate for a sec... its the off season, and its in chit-chat. There are also other posts not about FIRST/Engineering in Chit-Chat (See http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=47706 ) and http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=45398

This thread was not meant to cause any North V. South issues (I thought we figured all that out in 1865!). Its just an interesting movie, that takes an interesting look at history in an interesting way. FIRST is about people just as much as its about engineering.

Give the film a shot if you are interested in that kinda thing, if not thanks for reading. CD is so large I would imagine its close to impossible for someone not to find at least 1 thread that they find interesting.

Re: The Confederate State of America

I'd love to see this as a great discussion area, but as a northerner transplanted and living in the old capital of the CSA, I can say without a doubt that this is opening a can of worms that is mind boggling.

No, the only thing resolved in 1865 was the military option for change.

There are plenty of people around who are very willing to waste time arguing the political points that brought about the war. As if it actually might make a difference 140 years later.

Since I only attend two movies per year, I'm probably going to have to miss this one. I already saw "Akeelah and the Bee", and I'm certainly going to catch "Cars" by Pixar. I'm probably not in their demographic anyway, so I'm sure they won't miss my money.
