The Corner takes a break

November 8, 2012

Good morning all.

It’s less than 48 hours since the devastation of an Obama re-election swept the country and many, many millions of us are till just shaking our heads, HOW?

How did it happen and just how does America survive after crossing de Tocqueville’s tipping point?

There are plenty of words and columns floating around in this empty space between my ears, but for the next few days, that’s where they’re going to stay.

Heading to the great state of Tennessee for a pre-planned trip to family and friends.

And while what was expected to be a celebration trip has changed to a……well, a trip. What better way to forget the debacle than some time on Beale Street and then moving on into Nashville and Franklin?

If you’ve never been to Tennessee it’s a must for your bucket list.  It’s the best this country has to offer and I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

So as you’re checking here for your daily Corner fix and find the cupboard bare, worry not, I shall return in a few days as wise and all knowing as ever.  (or as family says, as “full of it as ever”)

Until then, remember the words of Churchill above and remember the words of Franklin below:

“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.”

And remember this:

That while we may now be  fully surrounded by ignorance and the misery of socialism is fast upon us, we are not alone.  Draw strength from the millions who have gone before us.  Their challenges were far greater, far harder and yet they prevailed.

And we will too.  (After a few brewskies on Beale and some boot kickin in Nashville of course.)

As always, thank you ALL for your patronage and I’ll “see ya round the Corner” next week.

God Bless and God Bless the United States of America.
