  •  Ah, yes, The Lost Cause (17+ / 0-)

    The South's been singing this tune for 150 years. Poor peaceful Southerners just wanted to be left alone, with their content happy slaves. Then Lincoln sent those murdering, thieving, looting, burning, pillaging Yankee hordes to ravish the defenseless South.

    JFK and LBJ forced desegregation on the, still peaceful, South and forced innocent whites to mix with the "colored" folks. Use the same bathrooms.

    In between we had the Southern populists railing against Eastern banks.

    The South has always played the victim card. Always will. They aren't about American exceptionalism. They are about Southern exceptionalism.

    A society is judged by how well it cares for those in the dawn of life, the children. By how well it cares for those in the twilight of life, the elderly. And, by how well it cares for those on the edge of life; the poor, the sick, and the disabled.

    •  Isn't just the South. AK, UT, WY, ND/SD, etc. (0+ / 0-)

      But I get the gist of what you're saying.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
