Maybe We Could Rename Everything

There's a giant monument to a slave owner in the middle of our capital city.


It's hard to miss. It in the middle of the city that was named for the same guy.

But let's just take down the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia and pretend that fixes history.

That's not a monument to slave owners. That's a monument to central control by the national government, seated in Washington.

Getting rid of flags - so much for free speech...

Today we also saw the COITUS[sic] decision on ACA. Mark my words, this Supreme Court will be remembered in one of two fashions: Either they will be show as having capitulated to the masses and temporarily put off then coming civil war by placating them, or they will be remembered as triggering the civil war by refusing to actual do their job.

Just remember - it is the Only Ones who enable this swill. They are every bit as much guilty of treason to their oath of office to the Constitution as are the Legislature, Judiciary, and Administration that they enable.

There is only one cure for their treason.

I think of it as an upturned middle finger on a closed fist (the rest of the "mound" on which it sits).
