The South and my lunch will rise again!

Oh, Mercy!

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The memory of the Civil War was set to collide with modern-day civil rights sensitivities as protesters targeted a Monday night “Secession Ball” commemorating South Carolina’s decision exactly 150 years ago to secede from the United States of America.

The Confederate Heritage Trust, which scheduled the dance in Charleston near where the secession document was signed, says it wants to honor the Southern men who were willing to sacrifice their lives for their homes and their vision of states’ rights. Guests will have a chance to see the original Ordinance of Secession, which has been preserved by the state.

The South has been so consistently wrong about everything, there is a grim logic that it is now the region of the country most represented by the Republicans.

Anyway, I’m sure Senatorette Lindsey Graham will be stunning as all the beaus fight over placement on her dance card, and who get’s to bring her a plate of barbecue.

South Carolina is too small to be a Republic, and too large to be an insane asylum.

    I have a twisted feeling that the above image wasn’t Photoshoped.

    This is the first Christmas that I will face, in fifteen years, that I have not been able to to touch the two beings that I loved so much.
    All this other shit just seems so far away from me and at the same time feels that I should arise in arms to fight this insurgency that I feel against our Constitution.
    My tears are for me and this country. This country is now nothing like the country that I joined in 1962 to protect our freedoms. I joined the “Army Security Agency” in 1962 and served proudly for three years in the capacity as an 058.1.

    I now care nothing about what happens to me, only what happens to this country for my children and grandchildren.

    Anyone that cannot see what is happening is either blind or against America.
