And People Wonder Why I Don’t Talk Much About Being From Louisiana?

posted in: Eban's Blog, pirate | 0

If you read my stuff here at RfL, or listen, or watch, or whatever, you get many stories from my life. Stories of living in California, Colorado, Texas, England, Germany, and Austria. You don’t hear many from Louisiana, where I was born and raised. This is not an accident.

To say that I feel that my true life started at 20 years old when I married Faith and we bolted from Louisiana for Denver, and my stint in the U.S. Air Force, would be an understatement.

I still don’t like talking about the first 20. Hell, I just got written out of another family will. No kidding. I don’t have many good Louisiana memories, and it does not look like there will be many in the future.

This story I am linking to below comes as no surprise to me. In a day and age where we are arguing over same sex marriage, this buffoon, Justice of the Peace Keith Bardwell, wants to jump back many decades and take on interracial marriage yet again. In other words, he refuses to perform them.

Seriously, even with my warped imagination, I can’t make this crap up.

Bardwell serves Tangipahoa Parish in LA. He claims his experience tells him that interracial marriages don’t last and the children born to such couples suffer. What a crock of shit.

I have two of the loveliest and sweetest, and definitely not suffering, nieces that are born of an interracial marriage.  My niece Kellie and her husband Derrick are raising these girls wonderfully. On top of that, They are doing this while Derrick is serving this country in Afghanistan right now. So, yes, this ass monkey’s comments and prejudices really hit close to home.

Maybe he should stop in when he is in Houma and see just how horrible life can be.

Get the full story right here.

I almost need to do another RfL episode just to give Bardwell the world famous RfL Bitchslap!

Cheers,
Eban
