How Dumb Does One Have to Be in Order to Be a Neoconfederate?
The above question is asked By Al Mackey at http://studycivilwar.wordpress.com/2014/07/17/how-dumb-does-one-have-to-be-in-order-to-be-a-neoconfederate/
There is no doubt that that he is referring to me. So I will answer the question as it pertains to me only. I’ll answer that question at the end of this post.
It appears that Brooks Simpson, a Professor at an Arizona university has taken issue with a census record that I posted on Southern Heritage Advancement Preservation and Education at http://southernheritageadvancementpreservationeducation.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?2010667
Anyone can visit there and see that I posted only an image of Lincoln’s 1860 census, no comments at all —NONE!!! So how does Simpson get to the point I said she was a slave?? He is assuming. Shouldn’t do that Brooks.
Of course Simpson’s usual idiots come out of the wall posting disparaging and insulting comments. For Simpson’s blog that is to be expected. Al Mackey and of course Rob Baker get in their insults on Simpson’s page—

George Perv is really that stupid, Eric. The guy is an utter idiot.

I can attest to that.
That too is also expected.
To Mackey’s corruption of my name, all I have to say is this. Mackey I must be a Perv I have this burning desire to have sex with your face.
Note please Mackey’s facts as they are presented to his readers. He actually posts none that Brooks Simpson or that you and I cannot see by looking at the census image. He does post a link to a NPS website at—- http://www.nps.gov/liho/planyourvisit/upload/Hired-Girl-Site-Bulletin.pdf
Mackey also makes this statement in his attack post—“When faced with the fact that there is no such schedule for Illinois, this person doesn’t consider the reason for that is that Illinois was a free state and had no slaves.”
The website Mackey posted, clearly states that Lincoln hired Irish and Negroes to work for him. It shows a “No Irish need apply sign.” Hired a dressmaker who worked 12 hour days making dress for Mary. Do note the average pay— on the high end $1.50 a week.
One of the more interesting facts posted this website is the small article about indentured servants. Read this website and you can decide for yourself if Lincoln used slave labor or not, it certainly appears so. Thanks so much Al Mackey and Rob Baker for bringing this document to light. To be honest I didn’t have that link, but I did have this one that queued my interest—-
Now back to the question at hand as it refers to only me. — How Dumb Does One Have to Be in Order to Be a Neoconfederate?
Well Mackey—I am as dumb as a bowl of buttered grits but I still stand head and shoulders above you and Simpson.
