The South SHALL rise (cause it can’t fall much lower)

August 3, 2009

Every time I complain about living down here, H assures me that there are the same sort of people who drive me crazy everywhere. I offer proof that, yes there are assholes and morons everywhere, but there are undeniably more of them near us:

Hat tip to Krugman

This area can’t get marginalized quickly enough for me.

For South, a Waning Hold on Politics

Don Dollar, the administrative assistant at City Hall, said bitterly that anyone not upset with Mr. Obama’s victory should seek religious forgiveness.

“This is a community that’s supposed to be filled with a bunch of Christian folks,” he said. “If they’re not disappointed, they need to be at the altar.”

Customers of Bill Pennington, a barber whose downtown shop is decorated with hunting and fishing trophies, were “scared because they heard he had a Muslim background,” Mr. Pennington said over the country music on the radio. “Over and over again I heard that.”

Mr. Obama remains an unknown quantity in this corner of the South, and there are deep worries about the changes he will bring.

“I am concerned,” Gail McDaniel, who owns a cosmetics business, said in the parking lot of the Shop and Save. “The abortion thing bothers me. Same-sex marriage.”

“I think there are going to be outbreaks from blacks,” she added. “From where I’m from, this is going to give them the right to be more aggressive.”

I’ll steal the words of The Animals:

I would not have guessed that blue states have lower rates of divorce.

For too long, the conventional wisdom has been that social conservatives are the upholders of family values, whereas liberals are the proponents of a polymorphous selfishness. This isn’t true, and, every once in a while, liberals might point that out.

On Science Fiction vs. Fantasy

July 14, 2006

It’s has always irked me when Science Fiction books are lumped together with Fantasy, either in libraries or bookstores. But my blood particularly boils when I see the “Left Behind” books labeled Science Fiction at my branch. Maybe it’s just because we’re in a midst of a campaign to relabel the rank superstition of Creationism as psuedo-scientific “Intelligent Design,” but I’m very bothered that a series concerned with the Earth post-Christian-Ascension (good riddance, by the way) can masquerade under the label of Science Fiction.

I like how they keep saying the science isn’t in on global warming. They just don’t know. No proof. But, of course, it’s in on God. Lots of proof on that. Tons of empirical evidence. They got God’s DNA.

Heh.
