Snippet: How Progress Happens in America

Step 1: Southern states begin passing laws opposing something.
Step 2: The rest of the country realizes the South has never been right.
Step 3: The federal government cancels out stupid state legislation.
Step 4: Conservatives whine for another 10-20 years.

In short, maybe we should see the North Carolina ban on gay marriage as a step towards nationally recognized gay marriage. After all, the North Carolina constitution was amended to ban white people from marrying black people… so as a general rule, you might say, “So goes the South, so goes the nation in the opposite direction.”


  1. You know what might be a good idea? Divide the USA up into two pieces. Have the Confederate States of America and the United States of America. After 20 years of regressive, oppressive right wing, theocratic fascism in the confederate states they can come back to the sane part of the country and beg to join the union again.

    Probably a stupid idea, but it might speed up the process of implementing laws that advance social justice and progress.....

    1. How is that fair to the minority of us normal people living in the South?
