Just heard this on the radio …
I especially enjoyed “Someone told us Wall Street fell, but we were so poor that we couldn’t tell.” It is a reminder that Dixie has a history that for a hundred years was nothing like the history of America.
There was never any “Gilded Age” or “Roaring Twenties” here. There wasn’t a “Civil War” either. We didn’t see much “Reconstruction.” The “Great Depression” lasted for generations. We are not a “Nation of Immigrants.” None of our ancestors came here on the Mayflower.
We have never been a “Shining City on a Hill.” There isn’t a Statue of Liberty on the Mexican border welcoming the “refuse” of Latin America. How many other lies are there in the history books?
Note: After Wall Street falls again, let us hope the American era and the Lincoln system comes to a crashing end!
