    We have a lot of other far better people to be memorializing should we want monuments in public spaces. I say we should move all these to one of his golf course where he and his cronies can admire them.[/QUOTE]

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I needed to laugh today and this line of yours did it for me!

    40,000 marched in Boston yesterday against white supremacy, hate. And probably Trump.

    A friend asked why I support removing the statues, and isn't it denying history?

    No, I said, statues and street names are reserved to honor important people for their positive impact on our world. I said, we wouldn't put up a statue of Hitler in Berlin because of his historical importance, now would we? We don't name a street after Jeffrey Dahmer just because he was famous.... or a statue of Mussolini in Italy?

    We do not erase these evil people from history, we study them, put photos in history books, and history museums. But we don't put statues up honoring them.

    Lee's claim to fame was that he led an insurrection against our nation, in order to perpetuate slavery. It is different than Washingtons statues, although he too was a cruel slave owner. He formed our nation, fought against being named king etc.

    People who March to keep these statues up are racist, or ignorant, pure and simple, IMO. It's no accident that the Nazis and KKK showed up, armed.

    And that was not exercising free speech. It was inciting a riot. You can't yell Fire in a theatre and claim it's free speech.

    Now that Don John is losing money by the cancellations at. His property, and losing adulation, perhaps he will find an excuse to resign.

    This is a national nightmare, leaving us vulnerable to attack by our enemies within, and internationally.

    He could find many reasons to bow out gracefully, and many people wouldn't mind in the least.

    He could plead health reasons. Or he could say he wants to spend more time with his family. He could even say he's nearing the end of his life and wants to make the best use of his remaining years, and why spend several of them serving a bunch of people who clearly don't appreciate him?

    He could have ever so much more fun, golfing and playing Monopoly with hotels.

    Agate, remember his ego will not let him quit!!! He will instead go to Phoenix on Tuesday where the officials of that city have asked him not to come. He will hold one of his rallies and his adoring fans will go out and yell him on, and this will energize him unfortunately.

    I truly dislike Pence. Do you realize that he is so spineless that he came out and said he stands with the Prez. What a coward.
