I spent the last couple of days in Washington DC on business. Words cannot express how uncomfortable it was for me to be here in the "belly of the beast"! Suffice it to say that I am pleased to be boarding my flight out of here this morning. Oh God just get me back to the Deep South where I belong!
While I wait to board, I thought to share a few of my experiences here.
Sat next to a thoroughly obnoxious NY lawyer at dinner on Monday night. At some point during the evening he felt it necessary to share his opinion of Southerners. Among the comments he made were:
"I think they must all wear coonskin caps"
"Slow talking ... Slow thinking"
"What a bunch of Hillbillies!"
Had it not been a guaranteed damper on my career, I would have punched the green-toothed bastard right on the mouth.
Part of my time up here included a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. I stood at the so-called Highwater Mark where there is a memorial on the spot where General Armistead fell mortally wounded. This man died, along with thousands of other Confederates, to free himself from the domination of Imperial Washington. And some representative of Boobus Americanus had placed there a … wait for it … US flag! I removed that foul thing with extreme prejudice.
So my final thought for this morning: DC has gone the way of Miami. White, English speaking Americans are in extremely short supply here. This is an utterly foreign city! It is a picture of the future. The same Gooberment that believes it can serialize and track every individual round of ammunition manufactured, simultaneously insists that it's impossible to control immigration!
The years ahead are going to be very bleak indeed.
