Coming Attractions

I normally don’t tout upcoming blog posts, but there is one coming up December 7 that I’d like you to  think about and possibly comment on.
The December 7 blog reflects only briefly on the past, and is focused on the future and the only legitimate threat that we face in the Pacific. I expect that you haven’t heard about it because the media is focused on fake scandals, their hatred of the President, and on stories of racial, gender, religious and other divisions. Yes, they are all so precious – bless their hearts.

Hymns

I watched some of the George H W Bush funeral while getting ready to attend the final day of the Van’s Triple Crown of Surfing contest at Sunset Beach. The choir crooned out the Battle Hymn of the Republic, but didn’t sing Dixie. I would have thought that Dixie or The Bonnie Blue Flag would have been appropriate for a Texan. Or maybe just the Yellow Rose of Texas?

  1. You'd think. But anything to do with the Confederacy, no matter how tenuous, is to be avoided like the plague.

  2. Then George HW Bush can't call himself a "southerner". He can say that he's a Texas oil man, and that would be true.

  3. Women named "Clementine" and "Rosalee" would be offended.

    Though GHWB never claimed to be from Alabama, they could have done, "Rose of Alabama". It's a good Southern song…but Liza Jane would end up being offended.

    Away from Mississippi’s vale
    With my ole hat there for a sail
    I crossed upon a cotton bale
    To the Rose of Alabamy.
    Oh brown Rosey,
    Rose of Alabamy,
    The sweet tobacco posey
    Is the Rose of Alabamy.

    The river rolled, the crickets sang,
    The lightnin’ bug he flashed his wing,
    And like a rope my arms I fling
    ‘Round Rose of Alabamy.
    Oh, brown Rosey,
    Rose of Alabamy,
    The sweet tobacco posey
    Is the Rose of Alabamy.

    So fare thee well, lil’ Liza Jane,
    And fare thee, ye belles of fame,
    For all your charms are put to shame
    By the Rose of Alabamy.
    Oh, brown Rosey,
    Rose of Alabamy,
    The sweet tobacco posey
    Is the Rose of Alabamy.

  4. This service was done in an EpiscoPagan church where Progressivism is the creed. TEC is completely PC, I am suprised that they even did The Battle Hymn of the Republic.
