Classy…..


I don’t like the guy at all and worry about him regularly as our leader…… but the direction we’re going in as a people is highlighted perfectly by such.

At a popular ENC festival a few weeks back (one that draws 10’s of thousands and knocks on the door of hitting 100K in a normal year)….. a good ol boy was circling the perimeter of the footprint with a flag bearing such mounted to the back of his truck. You don’t have to like him, and you don’t even have to respect the office I suppose…… but there has to be a better way to show it than that.

I spoke with an ENC legend of a politician some time back that had recently announced that he was stepping down after many years. When I asked him why, his comment was that things had changed so much that making that sacrifice just wasn’t worth it any more. Said that when he started, that if you lost, you licked your wounds and got to work figuring out how to win the next time……. But now, a loss meant that you spent the next years doing anything and everything imaginable (along with some things you couldn’t) trying to tear down the one that beat you. This man was a retired marine….. with decades of standing on hills right by himself for what he thought was right. That was where we were a few years back…… and it’s only gotten worse since then. We are rapidly approaching the exact opposite of “God bless America”….. all because we’re spoiled pricks with little moral compass left.
