the civil union

It’s always about ‘the economy stupid’. We act like the Civil War was merely a war of morals. It was about ‘the economy stupid’. Feds in Washington threatened to outlaw cheap labor! Southern businessmen had a lot to lose. Fast-forward a couple centuries and isn’t it odd how it is the Alabama state government who are the ones playin’ Yankee while the blue bloods up Nohwuth are the ones looking out for the Southern gentleman’s pride…and they are doing so by challenging the state’s authority over what happens within its own borders?! There’s a core dynamic at work here. It’s that unrelenting desire to be the alpha dog all the damn time. Absolute power. Absolute control. The Constitution takes on a religious connotation here. (I’m talking historically, like when the language it is written in is no longer spoken).
