Four years in Virginia. Twelve years in Connecticut. Four years and counting in South Carolina. Add to that … Continue reading Where Are You From?
Recently, there was an article making the rounds on social media entitled 28 Questions for Republicans Because Your Policies Make No Damned Sense to Me, by Elisabeth Parker. In response, a Republican posed these questions to the author, and she responded with 20 Questions From a Republican Because Democrats Make No Damned Sense to Him. … Continue reading Questions From a Republican
To say this state is unconventional is an understatement. Things operate differently in the South, and not necessarily in a good way. In my 4 years of residing here, I've paid attention, done some mental note-taking, and I've drawn some conclusions. There's some shady stuff going on here.

Before I get started, let me say that I don't want to take your guns. I don't care if you own a gun, if you're a responsible, law-abiding citizen. Please note those two adjectives.
