tkdgator – that’s the thing. There is a MASSIVE difference between protestors and demonstrators…….and looters and rioters.
Few, if any, people have an issue with protestors and demonstrators. The issue is the morons, thugs, scumbags, and thieves that are looting and rioting and burning things.
Again, there is a huge difference.
And in this case that is precisely what has happened. Sadly it doesn’t happen in more cases of blatant acts.
pchemcat – oh man, we’d get along well. True the southerners are like unsweetened? what is that? I like regular tea as well.
I get along more with the housekeepers, and “lowly” people better as well. Mostly because I grew up just about dirt poor and related to them more. I don’t stick my pinky out at parties, and I am not impressed with your degree from NYU or Hahvid or Yaaaaaaaaaaaale. People look down at you different up here when you consort with “real people” and don’t drive a Bimmer and prefer your F-150.
Molasses cookies – forgot about them. I found a biscuit recipe online that you’d swear just came out of Bojangles’ oven.
And some of the best fried chicken or BBQ you’ll get is some old guy (usually black) who tows his home made smoker behind his 30 year old Caddy. Has a designated corner and lines of cars every day.
redkaycei – you should read more of the comments. Lots of “jokes” on here are quite full of hatred…..more so from the left as there are very few conservatives that still post here. Most just got tired of constantly being denigrated.
pchemcat – I hate you! I hate you! I love Tennessee. NC is OK, but I love TN.
I live in a VERY liberal part of the country. I see such hatred and arrogance towards the south and midwest. Simply ask them if they’ve ever been there and lived there and you get a “why would I want to?”
Leave people alone, and they’ll leave you alone. And you are right, you treat them nicely and they embrace you. I’ve seen the arrogant folks come into towns and locations and bring their enlightened northern/progressive ideas into areas and the people that live there resist and are thus uneducated vermin.
I was just telling my girlfriend yesterday that I’d rather hang out with a bunch of rednecks than about any group of elite holier than though nitwits.
And any group of folks that can make sweet tea, home made biscuits, and fried chicken is alright with me.
lone cat -I’ll give you that – to a point.
kentmarx – so all 80,000 pages of tax code were written by them? Come on.
Linguist – Understood. I was committed to my marriage right up until I found more evidence of deceit.
I have found a wonderful woman that I enjoy my time with, though I am still legally married. I think that it is mostly because of the freshness of the scars that I question marriage again.
I’ve heard it said that the person you divorce isn’t the one you married.
Jeffrey Cartwright – I suspect that you think I’m a tree-hugging, bleeding heart liberal. Hardly.
A prisoner can say they want to be put in get pop – however the state, via the DOC, has the requirement to protect someone that they know is in danger in prison. Like it or not.
The liberals in this nation abhor the death penalty in any form. It exists, not as a deterrent but as a punishment. I cannot wait to hear what the justification will be for this officer’s action. And as we can see from the “protests” (lets call it what it is – rioting, looting, arson) they are calling for his death.
Durak – And that’s the shame of it. The party chooses, not the people. The whole system is scammed and rigged. Yet we celebrate that Strom Thurmond and Edward Kennedy were in Congress for 50 years. It’s disgusting.
