    We all knew the confederate statues was only the beginning. This court cover some or all of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

    Yeah, some people have been complaining about God for a long time. And they will complain until the end of their time.

    And just maybe perhaps a whole, whole lot longer.

    After posting, it dawned on me that the cross has been a target for a lot longer than confederate statues.

    Another example of some do gooder being offended by an inanimate object.

    You start by eliminating history that doesn't fit your agenda. That makes it easier to indoctrinate the generations that follow.

    In Austin, they are changing school names with any reference to the Confederacy, no matter how obscure. John Reagan, a postmaster for Confederacy, Sydney Lanier, a poet who fought for the Confederacy, Zachary Fulmore, a lawyer and Confederate soldier, and John T. Allan, a lawyer and officer in the Confederate army.

    These are old established schools that have been around for well over 60 years. The reasoning: They want names that embody equity and social justice. One suggested name was "Moon Tower". Gimme a break.

    Well imagine if they started up a place called Obamaland, that catered to black folks looking for a Disneyland Style Adventure without all the whiteness.

    So far this is just a rumor I started, so don't get all excited about riding on the Soul-O-Copter or the White Nationalist shooting gallery. None of that stuff is any more likely than a black man getting elected president in America twice.

    In Huntsville Texas, just north of Houston is a HUGE statue of Sam Houston. The 4th largest city in the country (soon be the 3rd) is named after him. Will they demand that Houston changes its name? Sam Houston did once own slaves. But on a positive note, he freed them all and he didn't want the Republic of Texas to join the Confederacy.

    The fact he owned them is all they need.
