Cinco de Mayo

…an alternate view (I’m having Argghhharitas, mind.  No tacos today though).

“Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the Mexican Army defeating the French in 1862. On that same day, Union and Confederate forces clashed near Williamsburg, Virginia. Nearly four thousand American men were killed/injured/captured/missing, but their sacrifices can’t compete with guacamole and tequila! PARTY!”|

A grumpy old Cincinnatus who feeds goats, dogs, cats, ducks, peafowl, a horse, and sundry avians, especially in the winter. From time to time you will see guns. Until such time as the Progressives repeal the 2nd Amendment, everything you see is legal, Federal, State, Local, where I live. Your progressive paradise may have different rules. Don't project them onto me. Federalism still exists, even if it is but a shadow of what the Framers intended.

  1. I cooked a variant of Lawdog’s Quick’n’dirty chili for dinner tonight. Does that count as a “celebration of Mexican culture” or a horrific “cultural appropriation” of Mexican cuisine?
