Secession From The Union! How Could I Forget?

A most Southernly “Dear gracious! How silly of me!” for neglecting mention that neo-Confederates have a near-unanimous desire to see the South secede from the Union. Still. Now. THIS Union . . . our country. The idea of a free Southern Republic continues to tantalize the minds of our slavery-embracing, segregation-defending, homosexual-hating, female-subjugating, democracy-despising Southrons and Copperheads, and the beginning of a new millennium hasn’t lessened it a bit.

Gosh. Todd Palin wants Alaska to secede from the Union; a whole raft of Neo-Confederates want to secede as well. And here I am in Idaho, reminding me rather starkly of the old 70s song whose refrain was “Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am — stuck in the middle with you!”

I’ll continue to share what I’ve learned from the book, and pray that truth, reason, and love prevail. It’s still OK to pray for love, isn’t it? The book doesn’t make it real clear . . .
