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.

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

Is it possible that freedom today is akin to a round bale left in the field? In time it just rots away. What if American freedom… Continue reading Home of the Fed, Land of the Complacent: The New American Peasant
Imagine the old food pyramid. Now erase what is in the compartments, but leave the compartments themselves. Now place the pyramid atop a thick horizontal green line. Beneath this green line put a very thick brown line. The brown line represents earth, the green line represents living things, and the pyramid represents the strata of… Continue reading Can you be free if you and yours cannot survive?
I want to offer to those of you who have a beating heart love of Dixie and who desire to see a permanent reconciliation of Southern Whites and Southern Blacks based on mutual respect what I think is a good example of how to deal with the race issue as it pops up, as well… Continue reading Thoughts on how to deal with the race issue here in the South.
