Mississippi, thee most Conservative State, Thee Republicans, this video is so sad but funny at the same time. If my great-great-great grand parents belonged to the Wig party, should I also follow their party or should I think for myself?

I saw this on Bill Maher some months ago. You bet the south will rise again, and those folks will still be as dumb as post holes. I bet these old boys would be proud of themselves, they think they have it all figured out, just vote against the man black man in the White House and things will be rosy. Stupid can not be fixed!

Thanks for posting this, Michael.

Yeah, like others, when I first watched this (a couple of times, in fact) . . . I wasn't sure whether to laugh or be profoundly depressed.

SAD.....This is what generations of limited education, ignorance, and indoctrination, will get you.

This is what the Koch Brothers and the Romney's want, toil at low wages, don't think, and just keep to yourselves in your shacks until we need you to kill for us, die for us, or slave for us. And give em' that old time religion to keep them docile and in their place, the opiate of the poor.

I guess then Jae, I will have to move. Packing now! I don't pretend I have all the answers, but I do know that the group represented by this video doesn't even begin to have a clue. Pay attention to history when society begins to break down, most often by the rise of the elites, people turn to religion. They begin to believe that only their own brand of religion will repair the needs of society. The rift begins and only strong, independent people with a belief of the freedom and rights of each of us can work to turn things around. Or just give-up and give-in.

I don't give up easily, so I will stand with those I believe will fight for the individual freedoms of this country.

Ya had me Jae, until you said 100% of tornadoes were in the Southern states..Illinois (especially southern IL.) gets 'em too! Not that I want them.. we get ticks & mosquitoes too..and worst of all RepubliCON leeches! *blech*! Luckily we do get mostly decent teachers & Know that by going to PTA meetings, so we can deal with parasites!
Mississippi serves a purpose, it prevents Alabama from being the stupidest state!;)

Seriously, though . . . I think Mississippi should be called the "What Century?" state.

In just the past few months, I've circulated petitions that the only common denominator was that the author was furious about an action that took place in Mississippi. (i.e. Crystal Springs, MS congregation refuses to allow pastor to marry a black couple in their church -- and the couple regularly worshipped there!).

So many of the comments from signers started with, "What century are we in???"

SOrry I forgot to add, I don't think it's funny at all, it's extremely sad, that here we are living in the 21st Century, and these people are still in the 19th...Very sad...

Some things ya just can't fix, 'cause they ain't no reasoning with a rotted fence post. The term "ignernt" means beyond stupid or miracle it's still breathin'.

If the electoral college ever needed justification for it's existence here it is. Thanks Michael and thanks Carole for the forward
. The founding fathers were afraid of direct election to the Presidency. They feared a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power. Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers:

It was equally desirable, that the immediate election should be made by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station, and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were proper to govern their choice. A small number of persons, selected by their fellow-citizens from the general mass, will be most likely to possess the information and discernment requisite to such complicated investigations. It was also peculiarly desirable to afford as little opportunity as possible to tumult and disorder. This evil was not least to be dreaded in the election of a magistrate, who was to have so important an agency in the administration of the government as the President of the United States. But the precautions which have been so happily concerted in the system under consideration, promise an effectual security against this mischief.

Translation----protection from stupid, ignorant people.

If anyone else here's never seen it before . . . DO!

(My stomach's hurting from laughter.)

Where on EARTH do you have these genuine gems stored???? (Luv ya, girl.)

Well, I don't feel comfortable mocking other peoples. My mama told me to use stereotypes to make fun only of my own people only. Still, this was to good to keep for myself. Ya know I luv care2 folks, don't ya?

PS: we have identical poorly educated, brain-washed zealots in Croatia, too. Some of them are highly positioned in politics and public life. Being stupid and arrogant is a way to go!

Hey, I live in Tennessee (and, last I checked, it's still part of the South).

Still, I don't believe that you have to be part of the majority mentality, just because you live there.

In fact, many of our civil rights laws were implemented BECAUSE of people who lived in blatantly prejudiced states, when people -- of all colors, but common of conscience -- recognized the need to bravely stand up publicly and say . . .

NO MORE!

(And, I think it was probably even harder for people who did so (white and black) while still living in such an oppressive atmosphere.)

Carole, I've got it in an e-mail a while ago. This post reminded me of it and I searched for it on You Tube. So, here you have it.

Our comments overlapped, Carole. I agree, it is easy to stand up for the rights of some people in a far away country. Standing for your neighbor's right is a hard part, considering you have to confront your other neighbors, who are too damn close and might go after you.
 

Just Carole (341)
Monday October 1, 2012, 9:22 pm

As I keep digesting all these comments, one thought keeps re-circling my mind.

While the notion of encouraging the majority of ignorant attitudes of southern states to secede from the ESA . . . is darkly humorous, I'm sure most rational people reading here also understand that, anyone who's still expecting the "south to rise" (since 1865???) will not be satisfied with sharing borders with those who they feel are seditionists.

And this stubborn inclination to disrespect progress of civil rights is why this will forever be a perpetual wheel of rationalization. Should we support those who need recognition and support of government to protect what we feel are "inalienable rights," or should we mire ourselves in the confusion of believing that the issue was presented as part of a false flag?

Folks, this is so much dirtier than the simple implications of this article.

(Hold on tight to your principles.)

We need to stop the predominant government "every answer" of:

"If we feel threatened . . .we'll KILL it (and use your children to do it.!''

(And, if you DON'T feel threatened, we'll manufacture a REASON TO.)

I STAND DOWN.

 

Just Carole (341)

PLEASE join hands with me, your children, and future generationa.

And say YES to Peace.
