It really sucks being a 60 YO old white guy in the Southeast right now. [View all]

Especially if you are like me. I'm a far left liberal, atheist, straight but pro LGBT issues, ride only a gas efficient scooter or bike only, am pro pot legalization, pro choice and attend protests that are within riding distance.

All of my Kerry and Obama signs experienced a typical lifespan of 23 hours. I'm glad I don't have a bumper for a bumper sticker. God knows what would have happened. There are handfuls of other liberals in the area but coming out as one here often involves a metaphoric cross burning or something else.

Southern hospitality has gone somewhere else since the advent of Fox and RW talk radio. It gets fucking scary down here for people of my ilk down here.
