I thought the arrows were children...
Yes, daring, children--conceived by the miracle of immaculate conception.
I have one problem with this concept, that is that these people feel they should rule the world and would probably no longer need excuses to go to war (Destroy the godless heathens). If this was to happen it would indeed be a scary day for all people in the world.
I'm moving out of the south at the end of the year. They can have my share and the rest of it. Life is too short to live among such ignorant hateful assholes. Let them secede and we can all watch as they tear each other apart.
Not sure my home state would go with the rest of the South again. Floridians range from hardcore thumpers to atheists who get arrested while protesting religion creeping into local govt. Last time I visited friends in Georgia, some of locals gave me real attitude when they found out I was from Florida. I have a soft spot for backwoods folk (and banjo music.) They generally only murder the ones they love.
The food in New Orleans is just too damn good to give up without a fight.
There's a great book about this topic:
This is a super-entertaining read, and remains fairly respectful of the south. He casts it as an amicable split. Highly recommended!
Along the way, he interacts with possum-hunting conservatives, trailer park lifers, prayer warriors, and other regional trendsetters, showing that the South’s church-driven morality, politics, and personality never have and never will define the region as a fully committed part of the United States.
That's funny...gonna read that one. Funny how this place down here goes off on the 4th. Some very heavy ordinance. Couple of years ago some local burnt themselves up in a car loaded with fireworks,
Car loaded with fire works! Here in Texas they LOVE to blow shit up., regardless of the holidays. I have noticed that the more ignorant and slow witted are obsessed with fire arms. But that makes perfect sense to me.
