Progressives today have put patriotic Southerners in sort of a propaganda headlock. Because of slavery, our resistance to Civil Rights, the march of time, and the average American's shocking ignorance of American history, they have been able to paint the American Civil War, our heritage, and our Confederate flag as wholly racist, and so far… Continue reading The Civil War was about Slavery and Roe v. Wade
It should be obvious that democracy's usefulness is limited, and it should be equally obvious that not everyone should vote on any given issue. For example, a twelve-month-old baby may be able to express his likes and dislikes, but I wonder how a daycare worker looking after half a dozen one-year-olds could apply the democratic… Continue reading Why We Dont Allow Kindergarteners to Vote
In our post-computer world a new stereotype has emerged, that is the man that lives as much as possible in a virtual reality within computer games. Escapism is nothing new because it is born of man's innate desire to.... errrr.... escape? Or to live in heaven. To always feel relaxed, good, or excited. These feelings… Continue reading Better to dream unto death, than toil and live.
There is a class in this country that I call the Carnivorous Sheep. By his nature as a Sheep, his power does not reside within himself but rather rests in the hands that can both feed and protect him, a class that we can call the Wolves. What makes him carnivorous is that through no… Continue reading Carnivorous Sheep: The New American Peasant
So I saw a bumper sticker recently in my hometown of Paris, Tennessee that I have never seen anywhere. It was the gay flag with the following inscription: Warning! The driver is gay. Let's set aside for the moment the connexion between child abuse and same-sex attraction and why this man should probably be pitied,… Continue reading Warning! The driver is gay! He’s also courageous.
All peoples everywhere have mannerisms, traditions, habits, and customs that will cause an outsider to form a stereotype, and this includes Southerners. We are particularly well known for being friendly, and, having seen some of the world myself, I think we deserve this praise. It is one of our great cultural legacies. I am 54 and I… Continue reading Roll up the red carpet Southern Man!
A quick qualifying remark. I write from the bleachers with a beer in one hand and a hotdog in the other as informed or ill-informed as my friends who came with me and the temporary friends that I'll make in the stands. I make observations about the game below and those playing it. But I… Continue reading Crumbling Church, Crumbling Army
Gov. Mike Parson of Missouri recently signed HB 85 or the Second Amendment Preservation Act which nullifies federal laws and regulations 'that infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment' in the state of Missouri. We need to be reminded that the rights of states vs. those… Continue reading Nullification Today
My daddy gave me two spankings when I was little bitty that I remember. Both were deserved and effective. To this day I am careful not to splash water all over the bathroom floor or to play on the furniture. Additionally if the eighty-two-year-old man told me today to run out to his truck to… Continue reading The Southern Man, A Whipped Dog
Note to my blog subscribers: I apologise that you are receiving this twice. The first version somehow slipped through our editing cracks and was published prematurely. As we continue to digest 2020, Southerners must never lose sight of why our Confederate monuments were so targeted for removal. It is not because today any serious adult… Continue reading Intelligent Design remains the last man standing and the Confederate flag yet waves.
