  •  This is true. Also, (6+ / 0-)

    I have to say part of the reason I think we really get there Texas pride thing is because we are from Massachusetts. Fuck the Tea Party, WE are the patriots!

    It's a Mass thing for sure, that attitude. I feel a civil pride that is deeply rooted in the origins of our nation.

    •  I think the reason we both like Texas (6+ / 0-)

      is the fact that we both have civic pride in general and can see the good in it, just like we see the good in our rearing in Massachusetts.

      The other thing is that we both have pretty good bullshit detectors. Don't forget, bastrop, YOU were the one that handed Howard Zinn's books to me, IIRC.

      One thing that I think our grandparents, especially, would take pride in if they were still with us, is the fact that we have continued to continue our political education in US politics on the basis of reading history and interpreting it for ourselves.

      We should both take a great deal of pride in the fact that we understand the history of our country for what it is, and for the varied reasons why, and can love it in spite of all the pimples (spots, as a h/t to twigg).
