“Confederate and Union troops sometimes established winter quarters near each other, adhering to a gentlemen’s agreement not to fight during this season of renewal. On one cold, clear night, Union troops camped in Tennessee lifted their spirits and voices in patriotic song, accompanied by regimental bands. Bands on the Confederate side of the river struck up competing songs. Before long “Yankee Doodle” battled with “Dixie,” and “The Bonnie Blue Flag” answered “Hail, Columbia.”
I can see it happening again.
Obama seems determined to make the neutered Republicans eat one shit sandwich after another during this session of Congress: raising taxes, gun control, raising the debt ceiling, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, etc. That’s also just his plan for the first six months of his second term.
Hopefully, Obama and the Democrats in their hubris will destabilize the Republican Party, antagonize the Southern and Western states, continue to undermine the legitimacy of the federal courts, and inflict irreparable damage on the Union.
