Part of the Confederacy is seceding. Buckhead is trying to secede from Atlanta.
For you Yanquis, be aware that Buckhead is a rich Atlanta neighborhood which pays a ton of property tax to Atlanta. Which is to say they are a bastion of white privilege that deserves punishment. And so, it’s punishment that they are getting.
You see, Atlanta is very woke. That means the police are handcuffed in their efforts to control crime. And that means crime rates in Buckhead are skyrocketing. And that means people who are not criminals – people like the residents of Buckhead – are disappointed and often endangered. It’s not about slavery. It’s about crime.
Buckhead may succeed in seceding. Organizers say 80% of Buckhead residents back it.
But here’s the problem with Buckhead’s scheme. If Buckhead secedes, it’ll still be part of Georgia. In last year’s presidential election, Georgia voted for Hunter Biden’s daddy, a/k/a The Big Guy who gets 10%.
And Georgia voted for not just one but two Democrats for U.S. senator, thereby turning the entire senate over to the Dem crazies who want to give everyone a trillion dollars to persuade them not to work. Which will be worth, after inflation, about $1.32.
And there’s a crazy Dem woman who lost the Georgia governor’s race back in 2018 but still has not conceded and has not denied that she will mount an insurrection.
I think Buckhead is on the right track, but thinks too small. They should not just secede from Atlanta, but should secede from Georgia and join their neighboring state, Alabama.
Lynyrd Skynyrd deserves some credit for this idea. Recall a few thousand years ago that Neil Young wrote a song stereotyping and smearing Americans of The South. He called it “Southern Man.” Americans of The South called it crap. Even Neil Young acknowledged in his later years, in which he is now fully immersed, that it was kinda crappy.
In answer to Young’s crap, Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote some non-crap called “Sweet Home Alabama.” It’s still a rock classic.
“Well I heard Mister Young sing about her
Well I heard ol’ Neil put her down
Well I hope Neil Young will remember
A southern man don’t need him around anyhow.
“Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord I’m comin’ home to you.“
You get the idea. A later verse proclaims,
“Now Watergate, does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth.“
OK, I’ll tell the truth. Watergate does not bother me. At least the Watergate guy could speak intelligibly. At least the Watergate guy knew who he was, where he was and with whom he was.
At least the Watergate guy wasn’t taking 10% off the top on deals with communist dictators conducted though his racist, criminal, drug-addicted, lap-top losing, influence-peddling, whore-mongering, sister-in-law dating, child support-evading son.
So, no, Watergate doesn’t bother me. But that’s just me. I asked some prominent GOP figures whether Watergate bothers them.
Tom Cotton: “Watergate? Hell no! Watergate don’t bother me. I love the Florida State Watergators. Not as much as the Arkansas Razorbacks, mind you.”
Ted Cruz: “Watergate? Hell no! Watergate don’t bother me. In fact, that’s exactly what we need. We need a wall. With a gate. With a big lock on the gate. We need a Wallergate.”
Dick Cheney: “Watergate? Hell no! Watergating don’t bother me. We should throw ’em in Gitmo and watergate ’em till they all confess.”
Donald Trump: “Watergate? Hell no! Watergate don’t bother me. I like water sports!”
So there you have it. Watergate don’t bother me, and it don’t bother anyone else who matters. Buckhead should join Alabama.
