And what's with those ball caps? Are they surgically attached?

Public address announcers have to remind men to remove them during the National Anthem.

Maybe have some snow later on this week.
Friday night was one miserable night. Got down to about 25 degrees where we were.

My oldest son and granddaughter came over to watch the Saints/Patriots game with me, both of them decked out head to toe in Patriots gear. Made me want to disown them. LoL.

Over 85% of slave owners in the New World were either Spanish or Portuguese.

And right there, you have an example of the problem. "Yankees"? Always meant as a derogatory putdown,when we are all Americans. Yes, that's right-the South lost the war to keep fellow humans in slavery so knock off the divisionist thinking, take down and throw away your rebel flags, and join the rest of us in the 21st century!
Sorry Dave, when the rest of the nation finally gets their collective heads out of their rectums and realizes that the stars and bars stand for heritage and not hate, we will let you join us in the 21st century. When the northern apologists and revisionists finally understand that the war of northern aggression had little to do with slavery and more to do with states rights, then we may let you join us in the 21st century. When the yankees finally grow up and stop denigrating those who were born in the south as inbred hillbillies and racists, then maybe they will be welcomed into the 21st century. Yes, we are ALL Americans, and i will be right in the front lines to defend our great nation from outside aggressors, but I also will be in the front lines standing up to those who would label me as a racist just because of my skin color or for being proud of my heritage.

Here in Texas we have the most uninsured people in America. Yet, "we" don't want Obamacare. We have the lowest rate of students completing high school.
I could go on.
Down here they are too ignorant to know what's good for them. Thank goodness for the North to correct us when we're wrong.

While it's true that the confederate flag didn't fly over plantations where slaves were held against their will, it's hard to understand folks who see it as heritage rather than hate. Hard to understand because most of these folks speak as if they've got ten pounds of grits in a five pound mouth.

But, I digress. Sure the Civil War was a about state's rights. The southern states thought they had a "right" to own human beings as pets. It Turned out they were wrong about that.
