Seven Day. When the bogs primp and powder themselves and take themselves off to services to fool themselves that they are actually good Christianists.
So they can go back on One Day to their wanted ways of hating and hurting.
One of the hating and hurting things Southron bogs are most avid about is keeping women as chattel. One of the manifestations of this is preventing women from having any control of their lives or existence. It’s a nasty business. every bit as nasty as the slavery most of these people’s forebears condoned and practiced years ago. And surprisingly, the Yankee rose up and whack that practice down.
But they couldn’t, or wouldn’t, free the women.
So it is with some admiration that I note that the Irish have freed their women.[Link]
Back when I was a bairn, the common utterances were less guarded than today. People of Color were commonly referred to by one of the “N” words, and women were similarly referred to by a “C” or “W” word. (Spelling skills were considerably better in those days because the schules had teachers who knew and taught. Few had certificates and students generally knew more about basic things. Which seems to indicate that credentials are a form of false entitlement?)
Anyway, the Irish, a people who have been called the rock of Roman Catholicism and credited with saving civilization during the Middle Ages, have voted to permit abortion. I will remind the reader that abortion is one of the highest indications of intelligence, regardless of the decision. It is the epitome of trust in rationality and individual freedom. Which is why it strikes such fear in the hearts of religionists who want to maintain (and extend) their subjugation of other humans.
As I said, back when I was a bairn, language was considerably less guarded. It was common for the man-in-the-street to refer to people, especially disliked, by some epithet associated with their national or cultural heritage. Those of Irish heritage were generally derided as unintelligent by a common misuse of a noun/adjective.
So it is hope inspiring that these formerly stupid people – at least according to some Southrons – have the intelligence and integrity to empower women.
Not that there seems much likelihood that today’s Southron Religionist Bogs will become so enlightened.
In fact, we almost have to pity them. After all, they suffer from a debilitating mental illness that prevents them from engaging in rational thought. Their monopoly of cushy, high paying (relatively) overseer jobs has been seriously damaged by former slaves and impudent, unsubmissive women. Just inquiring what causes their manic insecurity is death risking.
In honesty, if I knew myself to be part of the rotting lees of humanity’s civilization, I would be ill tempered and evil too. And grasping very hard to drag down those who made me low.
