Ole, I'm not going to get into a tit for tat with you. You have your opinions and seem to enjoy tearing apart what I have posted. A good way to piss someone off and send him from the forum.
What you have written, particularly in rebuttal, can not always stand close scrutiny. Many volumes have tried to cover what we are discussing in a few short paragraphs.
While I think you and I are in general agreement with the basic premise, we differ in many opinions.
Maybe the solution is not to post on any possible opinionated subjects.


I think, particularly as it effected the rice and cotton culture in South Carolina, you need to re-evaluate the concepts of slave vs hired labor. Hired labor was tried with no success. I at no time alluded to working in the sun, where did you get this? Are you twisting this to try and show a possible racial bias on my part? I did point out that the slave labor was more suited for working in the Lowcountry due to his inherited trait in many of an immunity to malaria.

Conviction is not fact;

Insistence is not proof;

Opinion is not evidence.

I thought it was worth mentioning.

A little condescending?
