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!
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!
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.
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
