Refighting the “Civil” War


SALTA, ARGENTINA – Public life is always a hoot…

People of sound mind and reasonable judgment in their personal lives take on characters full of unwarranted confidence and intolerant insistence in public.

The couple whose son has a “drug problem” wants the government to start a nationwide treatment program.

The guy who can’t get his town sanitation department to pick up the trash in front of his house wants to clean up a government on the other side of the world.

The woman who is not sure she will need an umbrella is convinced the planet is warming up.
It’s always easier to solve someone else’s problem than your own. That’s one of the great advantages of living overseas: Public life is full of other people’s problems.

Old Stones

Imagine if a group of Americans proposed to abolish the First Amendment, take away your favorite monuments, or introduce devil worship at your church.

You would be outraged.

  3. Bonner's money quote "And maybe Lincoln’s statues would now be hoisted up and carried away."

    We can only wish!!


  4. I don't think we are "refighting the civil war". I think the civil war never actually ended. We are still fighting the limit of what government can or should do or is allowed to do, and we still have a negro problem evident in every blue city. It is not over and it is heating up again. indyjonesouthere
