Sugar Plum Fairy of St. Charles, Missouri has been fired. It's comical on one hand and a sad statement on the other about how tight folks' butts are getting in some parts of this nation. Add in the recent refusal of a bakery to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple tying the knot and I wonder if we are not slipping back into the "Good Ole Days" like so many folks seem to want. The good ole days that also had hidden in the shadows, the bad ole days. Apparently from the two stories, some want them included as well.
Then I read that viewing the US flag can cause one to vote Republican. I have been wondering what the cause was. I knew it had to be something simple and direct. So I stared at one for an hour. Seems a change has come over me............................
I punched up a profile of Canada put together by the BBC. Maybe it was my computer, but all I got was a blank page. I don't think it was my computer. BBC obviously has nothing to say about Canada. Even after reinstalling the Queen as the head of their country, Canada still can't get any respect from the Brits. It's understandable they get no respect from the US. They're our next door neighbors. At least they ain't rowdy and out of control like our neighbors to south are. But man are they boring. Booooooooring. No riots. No drug killings. Just a bunch of ice drivin, tree choppin oil drillin hockey watchin fools who like better beer than we do.
I did not punch up the BBC profile of the US. Now that I have stared the flag down and become a good American and all, I knew anything some wannabe Euro trash media outfit might come up with would be a pack of lies and innuendos. After all, their own history books tell the story of the revolution all wrong. We kicked their wanker butts and some clown with a Sir in front of his name tries to tell me King George lll had other fish to fry and finally just got tired of us "Colonists". Yeah right. Then he goes on to compare England's handling of "the Colonies" to our commie ass kickin crusade in Viet Nam. Shoot. Where does he come up with this crap? We kicked butt in 1776 and again in 1966. As long as more of them die than us, then we win. Right?
I noticed the last Munchkin died. Though I finally grew up to be a burly bad ass American male who had to fight the chicks off with a stick, when I was wee small the Munchkins gave me nightmares. Maybe it was their outfits, their smaller than normal stature, but I think it was their swarming ways and funny voices. Like some surrealistic minature lynch mob all dressed the same, they would surround me and ..........anyway, I figured out why they made me nervous. I think they were all actually commie plants. As evidence, the last Munchkin was not born here. He was from Ucrania, Slavickastan, one of those hammer and sickle countries over there on one side of Europe or the other. Pink as the day he was born.
Maybe now I can sleep at night.
Not sure where this came from. But stare at the Stars & Stripes for an hour without blinking and see what it does to you.
