“Lance!!! Wake The Fuck UP!!”
Uncle Earl was nuts; that is why we loved Uncle Earl. Especially us Texans loved Uncle Earl, because he was just like our Governors: Whacked Out. Only wors’er.
Molly spoke about him:
“If Louisiana eventually elects Duke (David Duke) governor, don’t expect any sympathy from Texas. They sent us one of their barmy governors once before—Earl Long, who was Huey’s crazy brother. Earl finally got so bad his own family shipped him off to a nuthouse in Galveston. We kept him for six weeks and then let him go; he looked like a perfectly normal governor to us.”
I throw this in (I already paid for it)

Just please read
Where ya goin’ with that gun in your hand?
Is it just me, but have we swerved into a New McCarthyism?
OK, let’s take a look:
Even today, people lose their jobs over an oft-hand racist remark. Is this justice? Does the punishment fit the crime? In some extreme cases, if chronic, yes it does. But for a one-time remark, should they be ostracized? Should they be forced to wear the Scarlett ‘R”?
Okay, for my purposes, this is enough.
When did we slip back into McCarthyism?
As far as I can glean, this was a personal phone call from an idiot to a… as CNN says, “Girlfriend and Mistress.”
Ok, the man is married. And he has a BFF who happens to be female.
Why should we care?
If one can point the ‘Racist’, the ‘Scarlett’, the ‘Communist’ finger at someone, thus dragging them through the muck, and down in to perdition, on an accusation, then what?
What, and who is next?
People who kick rats?
Or speak ill of rats?
In the privacy of their own homes (personal phone calls)
Fuck with rats?
Or even fuck rats?
How did we get here?
This is political correctness run amok.
Jefferson would weep, and so would Thomas Paine.

Lenny makes reference to Paul Robeson
“The secession leaders tell us if war comes that the superior courage of our people with their experience of the use of firearms will enable us to triumph in battle over ten times our number of Northern forces. Never was a more false or absurd statement ever made by designing demagogues. I declare that Civil War is inevitable and near at hand.
When it comes the descendants of the heroes of Lexington and Bunker Hill will be found equal in patriotism, courage, and heroic endurance with the descendents of Cowpens and Yorktown … When the tug of war comes, it will be Greek meeting Greek. Then, oh my fellow countrymen, the fearful conflict will fill our fair land with untold suffering, misfortune, and disaster.”
— Sam Houston with some prescient words on the eve of the Civil War in February, 1861
