The Northern soldiers ate beef as their main meat.
The Confederate soldiers ate pork as their main meat.
Beef has more calories and it has more protein and B vitamins, and it is heavier than pork.
The uniforms were generally made to suit a combination of the climates of their homes, and the materials at hand..
The Union soldier uniforms were made of wool.
The Confederate soldier uniforms were made of cotton.
Cotton is advantageous in the south because cotton breathes but this is only advantage that cotton had.
The uniforms of the Union, made of wool, we're more durable and could, up to a certain point, provide more protection than a cotton uniform.
The wool uniform of the Union was heavier and more insulating..
And wasn't made of slave labor, making it more securely obtained and replaceable.
Both sides were armed with the 57 caliber Enfield rifled musket, both sides were armed with the smoothbore Napoleon cannon.
But the Union had more warships, access to its own American made weaponry, a better, more accurate cannon than the older napoleon, time detonating munitions allowing it to explode at the point in its flight path that it would do the most amount of damage, and telegraph technology and more railway.
Economics and Politics.
The South had a liability.. The maintenance of Slave order at home..while at war.
The Union had no such issues.

The grandmother who asked me on a date and I told her she's too old..
She asked me what we have in common and how we have it in common.
I told her that what we have in common, isn't from us growing up together..
We have nothing in common in that regard in that way..
But what we have in common..
Is a society that your generation inherited from Edwardians and Victorians that sort of thing..
And built on it.
In that sense, we share in common, a work ethic, a sense of civility, a sense of justice, a sense of national identity and national, ethnic, religious, and heritage pride and a willingness to fight and win and kill or die for it.
The ideals of self improvement, a love of family and home..
We also share the same fundamental dress style, actually I don't like this as much as the Victorian or Edwardian...
But times are times.
We share a common food culture too.
But there are ways that we differ..
And my ways in this regard is in fact older than you by far...
Your generational change to what you inherited..
Is in fact backwards compared to what you inherited.
You inherited a criminal justice system in which many, many improvements in rehabilitation and peace within the facilities, and reintegration back into society was the goal..
That is a Victorian value..
And I have to say that I agree with that, much more than the Lock em up and throw away the key..that YOUR generation created...that had also existed in the Georgian era, before the Victorians.

What government agency do I call, to have a McDonald's business license suspended or pulled for continued workplace violence by management?
The racist black shift manager at McDonald's pulled nunchuks on somebody..
And he still isn't fired.
Business licenses don't come out of thin air...
The government issues them..
So who do I call to file a government complaint about repeated workplace violence by a shift manager who has no business being a manager because of his criminal record..
Who racially discriminates..
Now he pulls out nunchuks.
And he's not being fired..

Special schools = Bad Diploma and worse than useless, it would keep me down.
A GED obtained as an adult is much better.
Job Coaches = Provides nothing that I can't do for myself, and much more expensively to the state...

State divisions of rehabilitation = Bad records.
Medicaid providers = Bad records.
Sheltered workshops = Apartheid, horrible pay, cheap and unnecessary labor, and a bad resume.

If you tell me that healthcare is better in the northeast, you're full of sh!t.
The Northeast has the exact same for profit business based healthcare system as any other part of America..
And the schools in the Northeast are failing to create a next generation of high quality doctors.
If you tell me that the schools are better in the northeast, again you're full of sh!t.
The Northeast has the country's highest high school dropout rates for personal mental health or safety or work related or necessity or for poor choice reasons.
Also, education is what you make of it.
It is your obligation to learn, nobody else can learn for you.
You have the job to be a good student, not the teachers.
If you tell me that the food is better...
I'll say better for who ?
And who and what is the arbiter of what makes good food ?
The Italians ? F)uck the Italians.
Every human culture in the world has cuisine and dishes.
It's not the job of the british or the Germans to make the best pizza or shrimp fried rice in the world.
If you tell me that the music is better..
Again, better for who ?
A 30 year old with a choice of how he interprets messages and can decide for himself what to listen to or not ?
If you tell me that what you have in your house is better...
I'll tell you that you're full of sh!t again..
You don't have a damn thing thing in your house that is any better than what is in the American Market.
If you tell me that you have more freedom..

Being asked by a Democrat what the Republicans do that angers me... In an attempt to make me sound pro-GOP biased?
I told her that if she wants to know that..
I'll be glad to tell her..
The Republicans act like cliven bundy, Timothy mcveigh, Randy weaver...
The republicans create big gun parties where they shoot 10,000 guns in a single direction at night, calling it a shoot festival, when it's not a festival, it's a threat of treason, coming from the Republican party itself.. Through the NRA.
In their midst, they have people like the mormon cult.
Their ideology, while understood by most..
Is a creator of cults on the extreme.
Their answer to everything is lock him ip, fry him, starve him, deny him the benefit of modern technology, and nuke him..
And if you don't like it, go move to wherever.
Then she asked me if all that can possibly outweigh what on the left bothers me ?
I said no it doesn't...
The equally extreme that exists on the left, is cult families..
People too stupid to escape poverty and too chicken to take a hit doing it.
People who been in New York for 300 years and still know nothing about America because they never left, calling themselves Americans..and telling America what We stand for.
The idea that it's okay to live in what are the most dangerous places in America like such is normal...when it is neither.
People walking around talking like they have Tourette syndrome, and expect to not be fired, walked away from, punched, or told to f)uck off.
No the GOPs problems doesn't outweigh it..

My manager asked me why I'm working so hard, filling up the whole racks with cups of sauce.
This is mass production back here that you do by yourself..
25 cups across, 10 rows down, stacked 7 high..
And you are you constantly doing this every time you come here..
And when I schedule you to arrive at work at 10 am.. You clock in at 8 or 9..
And when you're supposed to leave at 3 or 4..
You're still here at 5 or 6..
I told him that it's because I need a champion..
And the only one I have left in this world is me.
I need a resume, and honesty is always the best policy, so I'm here to build one.
My heritage is also English..

My sister asked me how I would feel if I was executioner and somebody I executed was innocent.
I told her that firstly, as executioner, I'm not the judge and jury and I don't know the facts of the case.
I don't know if the condemned inmate is innocent nor do I have jurisdiction or the authority to know.
As executioner, my job is to assume guilt and carry out my orders without passion or prejudice.
By the time a condemned inmate meets me..
The jury found him guilty.
The jury recommended death.
The judge sentenced him to death.
He was sent to death row.
The appeals courts turned him down.
The Supreme Court of the United States turned him down.
He had all the opportunity in the world and then some to prove his claims of innocence.
I have only one job and one authority...
That is to Hit the button, pull the lever, pull the trigger or release the pressure on the tubes and clap the bag...
And out of this world he goes.
And even if he was innocent of the act itself...he still should have thought ahead..

Use of a weapon of mass destruction.
Conspiracy use of a weapon of mass destruction.
Destructive use of explosives or incendiary devices.
8 federal counts of first-degree murder of 8 federal law enforcement officers.
160 state counts of first-degree murder of the others.
Not a single one of these charges are TREASON.
Various weapons charges.
Various marital and family crimes, like polygamy and domestic violence.
Child abuse and child neglect.
And assault and murder and attempted murder of law enforcement personnel.
again.. Not the TREASON that he committed.
NONE of the Confederate leaders and military brass have stood trial.
Criminal charges are not just the names of the various activities of violating the law, they are a public message as to what is and isn't tolerated..
America continues to put up with TREASON..regardless of what is actually done to the people who commit it..

Some woman called the FBI on me in Bedford Hills, NY..
The FBI agents told her right in front of me...
That first of all, they can arrest HER for a a Federal Hate Crime, attempting to use the FBI as intimidation and lying to the FBI as well.
Secondly I (meaning myself) have the right to be in Bedford Hills, New York and if you don't like it, you can leave..
It doesn't matter if your house is $100 or $6 million dollars..
Or if the rent is $200 a month or $5,000 a month..
The rights are all the same, and if you don't like him (him=me) you can leave..
Because you can at any time, leave in Handcuffs.
Thirdly, he has the right to be whatever it is about him that you're trying to attack.
And last but not least, he has the right to defend himself..
And you got beat up... That's your problem lady...you went after him.
So we now can also charge you with a second, federal hate crime.
The third federal hate crime, is an attempt to utilize an NGO (non-governmental organization) to attack him with.
I was asked if I want to press charges, I said that federal court is a little intimidating and I am only here visiting..
Her attempts to use agencies to violate my rights failed..
