Adds, U-tube, Who Knows What Else, At Ross Brigade

I have spent the last couple of hours working on comments and throwing away garbage. There are a few comments that are used over and over. Of course those are adds. Then there are adds that are the vehicles that people ride about to view blogs. The name on the comment is an advertisement. The actual writer may be real. Not always, but occasionally. So what is my beef? Well, I received one comment, I had seen it before, but basically it talked about the web being a great place, because you did not have to research. You hit a few keys and there was your solution. The computer found it for you.

Then it hit me. The computer was causing the people to become less intelligent. They no longer had to research. When I first started to use the computer, I marveled at the ability to manipulate data. I was working in a petrochemical project as a scheduler. We essentially took the work plans of managers, added in the data needed along with all physical needs, pipe, insulation, systems, painting, erection, and many other factors and set out a daily plan for foremen to follow. We did not say put this bolt in next, for we felt the foremen needed to be allowed the latitude to think at their level.  The program we were using was good, but we kept adding to it. Soon we could forecast everything. Manpower, materials, start-up and on and on. Computers were great.

Then we noticed that some foremen would do totally impossible things first. they would put in small pipe and then larger, sometimes damaging the small pipe. The did strange things to delay the schedule. Other foremen would do the task in half the time or using half the men forecast. They in turn were in competition with the schedulers. It was interesting. I did not see, what I see today.

Today, no one really wants to do research. They want to push a button and it be handed to them in a complete bundle. The toil of collecting and putting the data on line is not even considered. Of course, here I am saying that I will be glad when all the material stored in attics and basements and Libraries and Museums, is online and searchable. Of course, there is so much lost material and so much that is on line but in a format that is searchable that I want to cry. Much civil war data is buried in old letters. Other wars since had better data collection but now the volume is great. Much data of WWII is not online due to the volume that was typed. I laugh at many of the well meaning people who go to cemeteries and collect data. Then they put the data on line in un searchable format. That causes the researcher to spend hours on line looking for a soldier or for genealogical kin. This is a terrible waste of time but necessary.

I have written a lot about the 27th Texas Cavalry. From 1863 on the data concerning their movements is scarce. I am looking for that one piece of data that will let me know what happened at the Battle of Yazoo Pass Mississippi in February of 1863. I have learned a lot about the regiment from the National Archives and Command Records of the war, but the data on the 27th at Yazoo Pass is not available. It will turn up in a letter or a side note about some other unit.

People ask me to add video or more pictures. This is difficult because the brigade was cavalry and the photographers were not. Most of the pictures are at major battles near Washington. The battles in Mississippi had a few sketches but few photos. There were some photos in New Orleans, Galveston and Vicksburg because they were on major water locations and photographers could go on the ships. I would bet none followed Sherman overland to Vicksburg. It was rough and roads were scarce and most used by the armies. To do a u-tube to explain history would be a waste of my time and not pretty. I can draw it better in English with or without bad spellings. I wish some of the clerks back in the 1860s had had spell check. It would have helped. I wish there were pictures of the Brigade. At one point in the Atlanta Campaign, a journalist for a Detroit News Paper saw the Brigade in action against a Union Corps. The Brigade, only 500 strong did a slow retreat toward General Johnson’s lines. Slowly they gave up space for time. Finally after loosing almost 200 men they melted into the Confederate line. They had done their job. The Confederate line had strengthened and was ready. They repulsed the Union with great losses. The Union Corps paid dearly for their punishment of Ross’ Brigade. Several thousand men were lost to only a few of the well dug in Confederates. The journalist titled his piece “The Ghost Brigade”. Later in the 1870’s the article was reprinted in the Dallas News.  Pictures would have been great, a video outstanding. How gallant they would have been.

I do not know what people are spell checking my articles anyway. Maybe it is their kick. Mine is telling the story of the Ross Brigade and a few other items. At times I make people angry. But I am angry that a people have let their religion be co-opted by bandits and bad people and then sit and let the worst happen. It will cause another war. Maybe the last war. In my Bible its says that God wins, so no matter where I am, I will be a winner. I know who God is.

I am also angry at a Government that will let its nation get so deep in debt, without doing anything, but spending more. Not if, but when the Dollar falls, our nation will go through a struggle like none other known. Obama, thinks he can control starving people by using UN Troops on American soil. The sad thing is the number of old and young people that will die before the battle begins. When the battle begins, there will be no more American. Our only hope is that this is the last battle and Christ will come to earth.

Please watch the preppers and do like they do. To die and miss the Glory is sad but certainly not the end. Also God did say he protects those that protect themselves. Being prepared will allow you to live and enjoy and not suffer. Money will be a problem so be prepared to trade. Good trade goods will be very valuable. One I plan to have is water. I have a well and electricity. I am also planning to have other things.

The failure of the dollar, will hurt a lot of people. How many dollars will buy one UN currency is any. How long will everyone have to suffer. Why does anyone have to suffer. Why is this president doing this. What makes him think that he can feed America? We know he can not. He know it, but he continues to spend. You say the dollar will not fail. Just look at the Stock Marker. Of course some of us think the government is pouring money into the stock market to make it look well. If China lets the Yuan loose. the dollar would fall in hours. There are also other factors. Europe is on the same track. The Euro will fall before the dollar. You can do one of two things or maybe both. Save your Confederate Dollars or buy Bitcoins. Many say both are fake.  But I would bet a Confederate note will buy more in the South when the dollar crashes than a Union Dollar some day in the near future.

And tonight the Bitcoin is up to almost $12o. That is after a hit that drove it to $59. It did not die and it may still be the future of currency. I can not see people believing in a UN currency, after having lost all of their Dollars because of a bad government. The best thing about the Bitcoin is that it is not a government currency. The Bitcoin Foundation needs  establish itself as the Governing Board of the Bitcoin and remain unidentified to all governments so that it is never controlled by corrupt politicians, religions or armies of any nation. Once people see that it is not to be destroyed nor controlled they will support the Bitcoin.

For me, In God do I Trust!

    Think about it. What will you do as these capabilities are put into your hands? What new skills and knowledge will you need to have to use them wisely and for best benefit? What new services and support will you need? How will use these new capabilities for greater good both for the world overall, yourself and the rest of the world’s snowflakes? As you ponder these kinds of questions, if it doesn’t make you equally excited and scared then I’ve done a very poor job of explaining this.
