The Road to Damascus [Washington DC to Deadwood, SD]


Good morning readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.

I don’t see any way around it.  I’m going to have to waste a little of my life being Dictator In Charge of this Great Nation.  Begin by changing the Pledge of Allegiance to, “Whoopteedoo I’m an American.  I’ve got better things to do than spending my time making the US Government feel important.”

Move the seat of government to Deadwood, SD, and buy all the people making a living off it and connected to it, along with the news media FEMA travel trailers to head up there after changing all the road signs along the way.  Eventually they’ll end up dead in the water at Rabid City where they’ll be able to gaze contentedly at Mount Rushmore and go fishing daytimes.

Change the US Constitution so’s it’s concise enough so anyone can read it and have no doubt what it says and doesn’t say:

Mind your own affairs, tend your own business, and leave other people to tend theirs.  Step out of line or start arguing about it and the local vigilance committee or whatever they do there will take care of your ass.  Run you out of town, tar and feather you, march you naked around with a sign, ‘He beat his wife’, whatever.”

  1. I’m not going to vote again but I will volunteer for the coup which will install you as DICOTGN.

    • Hi Elroyjones: I’m figuring it’s just a figurehead position. I’ll make it my business to be in Tombstone AZ when anyone wants to talk to me, while staying well clear of Tombstone. Gracias, J

  2. Sounds like you’re getting bothered these days.

    • Hi ShimonZ: I can’t actually say I am, though I suppose the potential is there. Most of my problems come out of me not minding my own business, not tending my own affairs and keeping a careful watch on my own personal boundaries. Gracias, J

  3. I like your idea. Recon we can pull it off and there be enough people with common sense and intestinal fortitude to keep it that way for a week?

  4. Hi Jules,
    I sure like that road(sign): a real dead end, ain’t it?
    Best regards from southern Texas,

    • Hi Pit. Good seeing you. Yeah, I’ve been saving the pic of that roadsign a longish while. Came in an email forward. Got a feeling it’s either Photoshopped, or it’s real and is actually a first draft for the new replacement US Constitution. Gracias, J
