Hey guys, my recent post on Strom Thurmond's death was wrong. It offended and pissed off alot of people that I don't wish to be enemies with. The conforntation that resulted was my fault- i shouldn't have said the things about the Senator. Regardless of one's political beliefs and ideology, it is never excusable to wish him harm or be glad when harm happens to him. THAT was un-American. For the words we had I aplogize and i hope we can put the whole thing behind us.

Apology accepted without reservation. This is a VERY BIG thing for anyone to do, and you have my respect for doing so.

Your respect quotient just went up big time. From your name I assume that you're a person who attaches importance to history and heritage. The Buffalo Soldiers served with disctinction in difficult circumstances. I doubt you would use the name lightly. Aw heck, I take back my "BS" comment! [beer]

While I still wonder about your political leanings, I accept your apology without reservation. Thank you for being a man about it.

I'm glad to see Buff's apology. I think it shows character and while I had glanced at the post in question a couple of times, Though I had not participated, having more pressing threads to attend to. Having been a lifetime Republican and having worked on the Oklahoma Campaign staff for Reagan the second time and Bush Senior, I think I can safely say without fear of being called a DU troll, That the only thing I will miss about Strom is his seat.

I, for one, do NOT accept your apology....[}:D] I was NOT "offended", by your remarks, I just figgered you were ignorant, from listening to socialist "news" media. So, you don't owe me one. You started the thread with a certain opinion of him, based on propaganda. Hopefully, you were exposed to some info that has you thinking. Sad thing about Strom, was that, in the end, he buckled to the UN..[V] (I also figger you may be a bit young too)

If your apology is sincere then I say it takes a man to do that. If it was only self serving, then you must be Catholic clergy. Sorry is an action word. A verb. Only your future posts will show your sincerity.

You didn't beguine or say anything out of line against me,so you owe me nor anyone here an apology! You do however owe one to Strom,and since he is no longer here,things will just have to go on(I personally think he would just let it slide) as we all should do when one disagrees with what we believe!

I will be watching closely. I assume from your screen name that you are black. I too respect history, we will see if your posts from here on in are any different. But hell I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, I make a point of judging a man on the content of his character, not the color of his skin, but if your sensitive about race, well its fun to goof on people like that. If you want a PC message board, this ain't it...

No harm, no foul. Say any fuckin' thing you want. This is just the internet [b]NOT[/b] a court of law. If you hurt someone's delicate sensibilities, who cares?

What is with the "I'LL BE WATCHING YOU" remarks that some of you are making or implying? Are you his parents? If you're gonna be watching him, then I'LL be watching you! Then who's left to watch me(maybe Titanium T?)? Forget the "sincerity" issues. Let's just be adult about this and move on! Thank you!
