When the south stops voting in these nut jobs....

and unleashing them on the rest of us.... maybe us "liberals" won't feel contempt for those who elect them.

In the mid to late 1960's I was stationed in the south. I do have some fond memories of that time.

BUT for the most part I remember the racist hatred I observed whenever I left the base. I remember the oft spoken phrase "the south shall rise again" I remember seeing the "rebel flag" flying over the stars and stripes. I remember the social oppression forced on those who had less and had no way to advance.

On my discharge I remember crossing the Mason Dixon Line on my way home to New England and thinking well at least this "damn yankee" was glad to be done with that.

My fond memories pop-up occasionally usually when I'm fishing. I really enjoyed fishing on Lake Santee Cooper. I have thought of going back. Many times I have thought that things surely must have changed in the south in the last 30-40 years. Nothing has changed! NOTHING! Racism and oppression of minorities is still rampant.

Those with power still hate. Those with power in the south still hate all of us damn yankee liberals.

Those with power talk about succession. Here is a news flash this is the United States of America.

If we are united there is nothing we can't overcome. Including natural disasters.

So you need to rid yourselves of the "the earth is 6000 years old"... "there is no evolution"... "there is no climate change"... "the bible says"... "real rape"..... "vaginal probes"... "voter suppression" etc etc ........... f...ing nut jobs and join the 21st century with the rest of the United States.

Having said that. When a hurricane (Sandy) hits the middle eastern coast and their towns, homes and lives are in a shamble we all should help with IMMEDIATE federal relief dollars. When a tornado touches down in Mississippi we all should help with the same federal relief dollars. That is the role of government.
