Confederate dollar

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

I sit in the clinic waiting room, a man walked up with something to sell. Having nothing else to do I glanced at his wares. He had a small packet of Confederate dollar bills. I pulled one out and asked, "how much?" "five dollars for a one dollar bill" tell me little bird, has our good Yankee dollar really fallen so low or has the Confederate dollar rose in value? When I was a boy, long ago the saying was hold on to your Confederate money boys, the south is gonna rise again!! What do you think?

By the way I didn’t buy one. The way our economy is going we may need something to trade for the things we need for life. Personally I am stocking up on canned soup.

Anything to trade for gas, rent and medical service. My son has planted a good sized vegetable garden. As I look around the neighborhood, more people are tearing out lawns and planting tomatoes, peppers and things each family enjoys.

These gardens were once called "Victory gardens." Once they were grown because we were at war with people who hated us. I think deep down some of my neighbors feel the war, yes the war we are fighting is here. The war that will soon come ashore, thru bad leadership and corruption in our government. While you hoe those tomatoes, peppers and lettuce, think how, if you, yes YOU can fight this war and defend your home. Start by listening to people speak who are running your town, city and state. Do they lie, make promises they can not keep. When an election, no matter how small, VOTE!! If you can not fight our country’s enemies, elect people who can.

Watch the actions of groups like the environmentalists.

They are like weeds in your garden. A few are harmless. Some even have pretty blooms, all too soon they take over the whole garden, a good gardener will weed them out before they take over. We need to look who is running the country. Really running it.

I enjoy the names some are given like people who save the trees are called "tree huggers" I wonder what we will call someone who saves Americans, not president, I think!!!

It is still a free country, tho I am looking at my clock and my garden, and hope you have an opinion, I do! This is one, I have many. They are JON’S VU!!
