The World's A Changing

This weekend two eras come to an end.

Today the last Confederate statue in New Orleans came down, it was of Robert E. Lee. While I don't agree with the South's decision to secede, the man was willing to die for his beliefs and was a great general. For that I respect him.

The other is The Ringling Brothers Circus will close the curtain for the final time this weekend. It's too bad b/c it's such a cool experience.

We know what came, but do not know what comes.

Circuses are yesterdays newspapers.
Lee was overrated. He// he lost at Gettysburg to the side that had Custer fighting as a Brigadier General.
Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson was every bit as good and perhaps better had he not been killed by friendly fire.
The south was undefeated at the time of Jackson's death.
Nathan Bedford Forrest perhaps had the most natural instincts and under different circumstances the best of them all.

Robert E Lee, been to his homeplace, Stratford Hall Plantation. Really neat place, great tour, lots of history, near Colonial Beach Va.

Getting rid of these statues does not change the history. If "we" continue to erase all these things, "we" are destined to repeat the past.

The Ringling Bros. Circus, fortunate enough to see their show, at least twice in my lifetime. Great circus! Loved it.

The times they are changing. :|

I heard they want to clean off the side of of Stone Mountain. History happened you can't erase it by taking down statues and not talking about it. This country is headed in a bad direction.

I loved the circus when I was a kid. Stupid animal lovers basically forced them to give up the elephants and down came the big top.

It really is sad seeing these changes

Maybe we should dig up all the soldiers in Arlington and return the land to the Lee family. The land was illegal confiscated ruled so by the Supreme Court. Maybe we should tear down the thiefs statue at the Lincoln memorial.
What a joke on history the sainthood of the president that wanted to deport the African to Central America.

This is what museums are for. Those that really want to see these things can visit and spend as much time as they wish looking at it and remembering.

Reckon he figured since it worked in Liberia it would work in Central America. All voluntary of course.

I've read two speeches by him where he was pro slavery and anti-aircraft. He just pandered to the specific crowd.

The true irony is if the democrats had not self destructed in a power struggle he would have never seen the White House. They fractured into three groups running a norther, southern and western candidate against him.

Secondly I don't think he gave any anti air craft speechs that auto correct is a pain sometimes.
