  • Will the Washington Monument be Next?????
  • Well we took our farewell tour of Monument Avenue yesterday. Soon we are guessing that it will just be called The Avenue. I still cannot see what good it will do to spend a lot of money to tear down some 100 year old monuments, that even the biggest critics need to admit are works of art.
    Now holding to the same line of thinking we are wondering how long it will be until the Washington DC City council votes to tear down the Washington Monument. After all George Washington himself propigated slavery. So we cannot see how he will get a pass. I would imagine that tearing down monuments like the Washington Monument could get quite expensive. So now we are wondering where the money is coming from. Will they take the money from the schools budget. Richmond Va Schools are some of the worst performing in the whole country. So we are guessing that taking a couple of million away from them really wont hurt anything.
    We are also guessing that the social boost they get from tearing down those old statues will more then make up for their loss of funds. I am wondering if it will show up in their test scores. Interpertation: will there be any positive or tangible results???
    Why not just do somethhing positive and move forward.
    How has slapping one group in the face ever helped with their overall social and economic relationships???

  • Egyptian pyramids need to come down!!!
  • I'm so offended. The pyramids were built with slave labor. They need to be torn down immediately. I think that BLM and AntiFah need to head over to Egypt to protest....can't wait to see that....

  • Yep, that was my post a few doors down...
    I think we will get more traction using the Washington Monument as an example.
    There are a lot of folks who would care more about a landmark such as the Washington Monument much more then even the Pyramids...
    But yes they gotta go too...
    Maybe the "White House" too...

  • I received this today in an e-mail. I do not know who the author is.

    “BLACK PEOPLE, WHO WERE NEVER SLAVES,
    ARE FIGHTING WITH WHITE PEOPLE, WHO WERE NEVER NAZIS,
    OVER A CONFEDERATE STATUE, ERECTED BY DEMOCRATS, BECAUSE
    DEMOCRATS CAN’T STAND THEIR OWN HISTORY ANYMORE
    AND SOMEHOW IT IS TRUMPS FAULT?”
    INTERESTING!

  • Yep. Washington owned slaves so it's gotta go.

    Not to worry about cost though, It's just taxpayer dollars.
