You would think...

I would get used to it eventually. It seems like almost every day I read something that leaves me speechless for a few minutes. My brain just can't seem to believe what I'm reading - but there it is.

Its not often you see this much stupidity in one place. In that sense it does deserve some appreciation. Although, I suppose I'm too dumb, unskilled and easily exploited to make such an observation. You know how us suth-a-nahs are.

(sigh) This reads exactly like something out of Atlas Shrugged. I cannot believe this is an actual column in the real world. I realize this is a site by and for left-leaning people, but the fact that an 'educated' person wrote it and so many people believe it is appalling. The amount of Constitutional and economic ignorance in this piece is almost unfathomable.

There is just sooo much in that piece that is just...un-American. How have we fallen this far?

Oh, and take a look at some of the comments on the column. Here are a couple of my favorites:

"Sherman let them off easy. Sherman was far too conservative with the torch on his march."

"Say what you will about the "proud" south......they CAN be bought!I'd bet that if the price were right, they'd let Al Qaeda set up shop. AQ only attacks blue states anyway!!"

Niiiice.

I love the comment about the US automakers outsourcing to Mexico.

Oh, isn't Saturn based in Tennessee?

Ford has plants in Georgia,
Kentucky, and Virginia.

Chrysler has its electronics made in Huntsville and a parts plant in Memphis.

But the winner would have to be GM. The following is a link to their global empire.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good opportunity to rip the ignorant, unenlightened people of the south.

The funny thing is that there were SO many things wrong in his 'analysis' that I didn't even think of what you pointed out!

You know me; I would rather point out the flaws in his facts than attack the obvious absurdity of his logic.
