Merle Haggard told me the truth; the homos and fatties are not my problem.


I’ve paid homage to him before on these pages. I probably thought he was passed, even then!


Haggard captured the spirit of Americana that today’s hipsterensia arrogantly eschews.


They are so gloriously and smugly sophisticated and urbane and foodie.


You’re all a bunch of tools, you fools. Merle led the way to the Path.


Embrace your past and stop worrying about homos and fatties.  Worry about yourself, take care of yourself; this is your task and it belongs to no one else.
