https://www.fox13now.com/news/local-news/dixie-is-officially-dumped-in-vote-over-university-name-change Dixie State University in Utah has elected to change its name because of the word Dixie's association with slavery. This is beyond silly and would be akin to rejecting the word 'Cuba' because of its association with communism, or 'Germany' because of its association with Nazism. Or would it? In truth communism has so… Continue reading Dixie University: Death to Dixie!

The New American Peasant: Tuck me in and sing me a lullaby while stroking my hair. Now, dammit!
I have been listening to Vladimir Putin on Youtube quite a bit lately and am coming to better understand why Western media or just the whole Western establishment so hates the man. He is pro-Russian, pro-Christianity, and pro-tradition. By all means blast him if you like. He plays hardball and doubtless has done some nasty… Continue reading The New American Peasant: Tuck me in and sing me a lullaby while stroking my hair. Now, dammit!
Death to the GOP! Or not.
Governor Lee's recent vote to remove the bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest from the Tennessee State Capitol is yet more proof of the old adage that there is a not a dime's worth of difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties. I for one contend that this is true in part because the two parties… Continue reading Death to the GOP! Or not.
The Civil War was about Slavery and Roe v. Wade
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
Better to dream unto death, than toil and live.
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.
Warning! The driver is gay! He’s also courageous.
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.
Roll up the red carpet Southern Man!
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!
Crumbling Church, Crumbling Army
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
The Southern Man, A Whipped Dog
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
Home of the Fed, Land of the Complacent: The New American Peasant
Is it possible that we simply cannot remain free? Not as our ancestors imagined they were or the way we think of America as the Land of the Free. 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
