This symbol officially stood for Wallace. It shouldn’t officially stand for American states today.

Today I have stood, where once Jefferson Davis stood, and took an oath to my people. It is very appropriate then that from this Cradle of the Confederacy, this very Heart of the Great Anglo-Saxon Southland, that today we sound the drum for freedom as have our generations of forebears before us done, time and time again through history. Let us rise to the call of freedom- loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the tyranny that clanks its chains upon the South. In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny . . . and I say . . . segregation today . . . segregation tomorrow . . . segregation forever.

Okay, this is a bit of a different one. I’m way too busy to type everything that I wanted to say, so I recorded it. Not that again any time soon. Made it easier to get other stuff done as I talked with only short breaks from working to read quotes, but it also causes one to stray a bit here and there. So, yeah, this one is largely audio with quotes and links to support what I discuss in the recording. I go over why I think the flag should not be flown as a state symbol, its almost nonstop, 150+ year history with being affiliated with racism and white supremacy, why most of the Confederate monuments should not be pulled down, how stupid the false equivalency arguments are, and why companies like Apple and TV Land are being incredible dumbasses.

But, again, yeah, not doing this type of blog again any time soon.

Ebola

We’re coming up on a one year anniversary that probably very few people will want to remember, let alone observe. This would be the anniversary of when noticeable chunks of the population turned into screeching, screaming, trembling, frightened, and in some cases unreasonably angry and paranoid children. The start of this was around the beginning of August of 2014, when the news covered the fact that an American Ebola victim who had been a volunteer treating others overseas was being brought into the country to be treated at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.
