From the Sidebar

It has been a long day. 10 hours at work, cook dinner (broiled NY Strip, baked potato, fruit and a nice Spanish Garnacha), and play with youngest granddaughter. Not to mention that there is a Stars game on the tube.

So tonight it is all linky, no thinky.

Some folks are taking this flag thing very seriously, one site I have listed on several blog rolls sent me a request to be removed from the Thompson roll and he removed ALL Thompson support from his site...

I respect his loyalty to the Confederacy but none of the candidates are going to stand up and say 'Hell Yeah, fly the flag, it's our heritage', it just won't be done, by ANY of em...

Thanks for the link, I DO seriously appreciate it...

My thanks for taking the time to read those articles!

They are clarifying my problem with the current political set-ups, and that is, actually, making it harder to support anyone out there. That was something I had not thought possible...
