"More Wrong" There is no degree of "wrong"

In your haste to offend and criticize, you stepped over what I said. I never referred to the "Founders" but to all the men who volunteered to grab arms and ammo to protect their community "in a minute" The subject of the thread is "Minutemen" not the Founders.

You really need to research who founded our nation, how and why. It was not just the men in Philadelphia during the summer of 1789. Their genius was the creation of the contract and values enshrined in our Declaration of independence, and of course, the Constitution. I was referring to the men and women, tavern keepers and Clergy, Christians , non believers, Catholics, Protestants, Jews and even a few Muslims, Farmers, Fishermen, and Sailors,,,,,all who fought and often died in the struggle to remove the British Yoke from our citizens.

The Minutemen existed long before 1776. And were as I have described. These modern versions in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona are no different.

Wrong??? Hardly

Please do not try to equate patriots with a bunch of ignorant rednecks.

I don't believe that Frank ever made a comparison between you and our founders.

Rednecks are honorable, albeit poor, farmers. Please do not denigrate them so casually.


Political term for poor farmers
The term characterized farmers having a red neck caused by sunburn from hours working in the fields. A citation from 1893 provides a definition as "poorer inhabitants of the rural districts ... men who work in the field, as a matter of course, generally have their skin stained red and burnt by the sun, and especially is this true of the back of their necks".


These are amoung the kind of hardworking people upon which our nation is built. You dishonor them with your slang.

Yes, we all know that you and many on the Left love to denigrate working class people, if you all weren't so stupid you would know that's a big reason Donald Trump is our President.
