Question: What's next? Answer: What's left?
Most have heard about how to corral wild pigs, but in case you haven't.
Spread out some corn in a field. Soon a wild pig will come and begin eating the corn, followed by another and another. Next day, build a fence line and lay out more corn. More wild pigs will show up, check out the fence, then eat the corn.
Next day, lay out the corn, wait for the wild pigs to begin eating, then build a fence to form a box. You have just corralled wild pigs.

This is not so much about politics as it is about control. History has a habit of repeating itself. Remember?
So, now it has been decided that the Confederate flag is to blame for all of our nation's woes. It has been ruled that there will be no reference to that flag ever again. No history. Never happened.
Well then, let's just tear out all the pages, shall we. There will now be no mention of slavery. No history. Never happened.
How ignorant we are to actually believe that this will cure all our problems. Our elected officials and "do-gooders" read about the current "flavor of the month," then jump on the nearest bandwagon and wag their fingers at us.
Hear that noise? They're building a fence.
