The people of Wisconsin are a little peeved today. Public demonstrations due to budget cuts reactions. And in ‘public demonstration news’ an enactment today features an actor playing Jefferson Davis as President of the Confederacy – a divisive moment in US history 150 years ago. A famous quote of Jefferson Davis is:
|“[Our situation] illustrates the American idea that governments rest on the consent of the governed, and that it is the right of the people to alter or abolish them whenever they become destructive of the ends for which they were established.”|
|Jefferson Davis quote|
Cowboy Western culture is also kind of trending in entertainment costumery in the USA today. We only need to look at a pop star like Lady Gaga to see that dress up is a favorite American thing to do. What else can we say about that trend? She’s got every day of the week covered. Or, you can just wear a cowboy hat for low maintenance American costume culture purposes too.
