I just heard on the news they JUST took Robert E Lee from his stand after all these yrs of looking over us. What's next to be taken away from us? George Washington & Trump in the muslin world trying to make peace with them. I don't know what this world is coming to but I sure would like to know before it happens, as I would LOVE to see peace & togetherness from all walks of life don't you? If you don't know the history of him I have a video of just the kind of person he was back in the day, & how he became the monument of new Orleans la.
The statue of Robert E. Lee was removed almost 11 hours after work began early Friday.

They took the 10 Commandments out too and took prayer out of schools. Yes this kind of stuff makes me angry and I try not to blow my stack but there are times I think this country needs to stop trying to remove history because it's all we got.

@lookatdesktop Have you ever seen the new 10 commandments? It's called the Georgia Guidestones. It's been there since 1980. The commandments on those walls are: Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity. Unite humanity with a living new language. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court. Avoid petty laws and useless officials. Balance personal rights with social duties. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature. The very first one scares me to be honest. There are theories but I'm still not sure what the purpose of those walls being there.

@VivaLaDani13 Sounds like a fictional written in part by a mad man. I think it stinks.I never knew such a revised set of commandments were ever written. Show you how much in the dark I have been.

@sugartoes Yeah I do. I'm glad you can see it. Anyone who can see weird things going on makes me feel a bit relieved. Like there are others who aren't.....asleep. If you get me. There's things going on that people can't see or refuse to believe it because the truth is too scary to handle.

@VivaLaDani13 yes I DO see things that make people go into hiding in a shell of themselves cause they feel they just can't handle the real truth about it all.

@Daljinder well it's time to do a little history check ha ha ha
Robert Edward Lee (January 19, 1807 – October 12, 1870) Did you know that Lee only got military education because his parents didn't have enough money for no...

I think it was absolutely stupid to take down the statue @sugartoes . It is part of the history of the USA for crying out loud. Why don't we just burn all history books and only PRINT what is POLITICALLY CORRECT while we're at it!!!!! If anybody has a right to bi*ch in this country it should be the Native Americans.

@nanette64 I was watching the 24 hrs news & heard that trump is working on making peace with the other side do you really THINK this is gonna be the start of a new era of the killings we live today? I think it WOULD be BUT what I'm thinking is what's to come AFTER he is out of office is what scares me cause the next one can start a MAJOR war with the ones we've made peace with just B-cause. But your right they taking the flag out of schools & everything they can & to me that's sending a BAD message to our young ones to head down the WRONG path later on in life what do you think?

@sugartoes I think we need to get rid of all of the 'lifers' (Congress) who think they can hold those jobs for 30 or 40 years and not really need to do anything while they're there.

Interesting stuff, not sure they have the right to do that, but he would have done it to anyone who was not of his mindset. Not saying it is right, but maybe not wrong either because believe many are trying to preach equality for all no matter what race you are. I doubt Robert E would have done that and why they tearing down those type of statues. Again not saying it is right, but probably not wrong considering how many still look to those things to justify their hateful actions. As far as Trump bowing to a Saudi king. I personally have no problem with it. Just would have been nice if you, maybe not you per say would have let Obama do it also as a sign of respect. Instead he was a Muslim Traitor and Trump is the man that will be bring peace on earth, except he is a dictator and lies through his teeth. He was more about the worship than respecting a culture. You have to see this miss lady or you are not bringing the most credible argument.

@sugartoes Fair enough and do not want to debate either, I am myself sick of symbols, but statues do nothing for me one way or another. People like them so be it, they harm no one. No reason for me to support it or tear it down.

We should learn from history. Sanitizing it won't make it go away. I don't see this as being a good move.
