You know thinking back, none of this is new. I remember watching when I was young such ‘masterpieces’ as Andy Griffith, Petticoat Junction, Beverly Hillbillies, and my all time favorite Hee Haw.
But in the southwest this was all accepeted as normal day of the week stuff. Nearly everyone is fundamentalist except for Latinoes who are Catholic and even they have abandoned the church and turn fundamentalist as well. We are having a liquor election once again. And you should hear the strident, hysterical voices of the dries.
“one drop makes you an instant alcoholic every time, keep our children safe, if the county is dry, no one will drink”.
The idiots don’t stop to realize that those who want a drink will just drive to the county line liquor store 30 miles away and drink all the way back home as they have wrecks and people are killed.
But this is all like a day in the life. My step dad would boast “ah’m prowed ta bay an ignert suthun reyudneck”. His accent. He died from lung cancer when I was only 20 years old. Quite the bigot he hated every one who wasn’t a texas, southern, redneck, Baptist, republican.
I am a Republican too, but not a tea party member as he would have been had they been invented at the time.
