A smile for the weekend...

When I heard Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were guest preachers at a nearby
church, I decided to go there and check them out in person.

As soon as I sat down, Reverend Sharpton came over to me. I don't know why,
maybe it was because I was the only white person in the church?
He laid his hands on my shoulder and said: "By the will of Jesus the Lord
Almighty, and the will of God, you will walk today."

I told him I was not paralyzed.

Then Jesse Jackson came by and said: "By the Grace of God, and his Son
Jesus, the Lord Almighty, you will walk today."
I stepped outside and lo and behold ---

My car was gone !

Amen

History Lesson to explain the Electoral College.

EDITORS NOTE:  From my mailbag, this personal note below from friend and fraternity brother with regard of understanding the Electoral College.  The importance of it became very vivid in the 2016.  Especially, with the Democrats whining and tearing out their hair because our nation dumped Crooked Hillary.  


"Hi All,
All of you know or know of my old friend of many years Bill Stott. Recently he sent me an analogy of the 2016 election results comparing the popular vote to the Electoral College vote. the last . You will find it below.
It rminded me of all the bullshit that has been passed around for years that the Electoral College is antiquated and we should be using the popular vote for presidential elections. This propaganda has been around for years. A lot of it is generated in schools by teachers who either don't understand the consequences of what a popular vote could actually bring us or they are brained washed from their university teaching in the liberal tradition and parrot whatever they have been told.

Here is a little of my experience in this matter. The first presidential election I can remember is 1944. Franklin Roosevelt, Democrat, beat Thomas Dewey the Republican contender. During the 1948 elections I was in the 7th grade and remember that election very well. Dewey ran again, but Harry Truman won in a come from behind win. As I look back, I remember all of the teachers were telling us that we should do away with the Electoral College. One of the reasons was that it was only devised in the Constitution because of poor communication, travel conditions, etc. of the late 18th century and the votes couldn't be counted properly, I believe that reasoning is still around today.

Since all of you reside (except for Jessica) in a small state consider the ramifications of where a popular vote could put you in an election in the future no matter which side of the political fence you are on. I believe the attachment tells the story. Be sure and enlighten your kids.
Love,
Pop"



"Our Founders in their infinite wisdom created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet and it should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense."

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore: These 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.

Why didn't he get the job done in 1995 and saved us all the trouble???

President Trump should run this video, ....and end it with his red hat on and simply say "I endorse this
message !"




From my mailbag. Thanks John R. our Georgia contributor.

I am now in my 80’s. Recently I received a questionnaire and request for money
from the Republican Party and strongly agree with every question as I have since Obama was elected.  Unfortunately the one question that was missing is: What have the  Republicans done for the American people?
  
We gave you a majority in the House and Senate, and you never  listened to us.
Now you want our money, my money, more money. You should be more concerned
about our votes, not our money. You are the establishment which means all you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets.
  
Well guess what? It's not going to happen. So far, TRUMP hasn't asked for a dime.
 
You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self-destruct course,
but look beyond Washington and listen to the masses. Nobody has achieved what he has, especially in the state of New York .
  
Here's why I want Trump: Yes, he's a bit of an ass; yes, he's an  egomaniac;
but I don't care.
  
The country is a mess because politicians suck.
 The Republican Party is two-faced and gutless, and illegals are  everywhere.
  
I want it all fixed!
I don't care that Trump is crude.
I don't care that he insults people.
I don't care that he has changed positions.
I don't care that he's been married 3 times.
I don't care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell.
I don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslim terrorist.
  
Our country has become weak, and bankrupt. Our enemies are making fun of us.
We are being invaded by illegals.
  
We are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hassid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in,  "AND I JUST WANT IT FIXED."
 
 And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what We The People want and need. 
  I'm sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, sick of the Republican Party.
I just want this thing fixed.
 
 Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn't have lobbyist money controlling him;
he doesn't have political correctness restraining him;all you know is that he has been very successful; a good negotiator; he has built a lot of things; and,he's also not a politician.
  
He says he'll fix it.I believe him because he is too much of an egotist
to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.
  
I don't care if the guy has bad hair.
  
Thought for the Day: 

"No country can sustain, in idleness,more than a small percentage of its numbers.
The great majority must labor at something productive!"
  
P.S.  No Borders, No Language, No Culture = No Country.

PERSONAL NOTE:

EXPLAINS MY GOLF SWING.....!

Congress Scrambles To Protect Its Members From Paying Sex Harassment Claims

Senators and Congressmen are pushing for a flurry of measures whose overt purpose is to reform how Congress handles sexual harassment complaints. But the real purpose of this outpouring of outrage is to protect the slush fund that pays any fines that eventuate from harassment claims while, at the same time, seeking to insulate them publicly by calling for reform.
The fund, created by Congress, is managed by the Office of Compliance (OCC) established in 1995, and run by a five-member non-partisan board appointed by the Congressional leadership. Over the past twenty years the office has awarded $15.2 million to compensate victims of sexual harassment and discrimination by members of Congress. The OCC does not break out how many of these claims were for sexual harassment and how much for complaints regarding racial and religious discrimination, as well as discrimination against people with disabilities.
This fund, amounting to something between as “get out of jail free” card and a Papal indulgence, does not reveal the names of the offending Congressmen or their victims, supposedly to protect the victims’ confidentiality. But protecting the Congressman’s political career might have something to do with it too,
Now members of Congress are falling all over themselves to reform this process, But, with the sole exception of Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA) nobody has fingered the need to eliminate the OOC fund and the protection if affords to offenders. So when a Congressman or Senator commits sexual harassment, it is all expenses paid by the taxpayer.
Congressmen and Senators are attempting to maintain the protection for offenders under the cloak of helping the victims. Proposals abound for sensitivity training on sexual harassment, allowing victims more time to file complaints and changing the evidential rules to help the victims. But nobody, other than Speier has zeroed in on holding members of Congress responsible to their own actions.

Hysterical Democrats mentally just cant get their brains around how the tax reform works....

Don’t Believe the Democrat Attacks on Tax Reform. Here Are the Facts. This is a good, simple and short class in the substance of the tax reform elements. It will surely be tweaked in conference committee but this is the essence of how it will end up. The 'dark side" is still committed to obstruction instead of working for advancing our economy and the people.
F.


The rhetoric during this year’s tax reform debate is producing more heat than light. While Democrats portray the tax reform bill as an all-out assault on the American middle class, members of the State Financial Officers Foundation have a different view. They believe tax reform is vital to growing our economy and empowering innovators in our states.

Regarding the middle class, Democrats fail to mention that under the new House plan, the standardized deduction would almost double from $6,350 to over $12,000 for single filers, and $12,700 to $24,000 for married couples filing jointly. That means the number of Americans who claim the standard deduction would likely go from 60 percent of all filers to 90 percent.  Critics also fail to mention that the tax credit per child would increase from $1,000 to $1,600.

Additionally, critics don’t admit that the impact of simplifying the tax code would disproportionately help lower- and middle-income taxpayers, most of whom would be able to file their taxes using a simple postcard.

Democrats are also arguing that higher education will be in shambles because students will no longer be able to deduct student loan interest. The current tax code allows a deduction up to $2,500 if your income is $65,000 or less.

However, this deduction goes away if your adjusted gross income is $80,000 or more. An analysis done by the American Enterprise Institute estimates the average benefit actually received by students is just $202.

The claim that losing the student loan interest deduction would prevent students from applying for new student loans and attending a college or university isn’t supported by facts. And frankly, if that were true, everyone should be pushing to eliminate the deduction, given that the student loan debt crisis in America has ballooned to an astonishing $1.3 trillion.

Democrats continue to argue that states with high taxes will be “destroyed” if state and local tax deductions are eliminated. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned in a tweet earlier this month that “New York will be destroyed, if the deductibility of state and local taxes is included in any final plan that passes the House.”

Some claim eliminating the state and local tax deduction is a “revenue grab” on behalf of the federal government. But the reality is that repealing the deduction would allow $1.3 trillion to be used to reduce tax rates for all individuals and business. The state and local tax deduction is nothing more than an unfair federal subsidy of wealthier states with higher tax rates.

And lastly, Democrats argue that eliminating the mortgage interest deduction on mortgages worth up to $1 million is somehow a tax increase on the middle class.

Aside: It is humorous to most of us that live between the coasts that somehow someone with a $1 million mortgage is still considered to be middle class.

This disingenuous claim only impacts new mortgages. Homeowners who currently own a home would still be able to deduct their mortgage interest. And for new home purchases, one would still be able to deduct the interest up to the first $500,000 of the mortgage.

Given the analysis by the National Low Income Housing Coalition that fewer than 4 percent of mortgages in the United States are over $500,000, the “middle class” statistically has nothing to worry about when it comes to the proposed changes.

State leaders from the State Financial Officers Foundation act as the chief financial officers and chief financial literacy officers for their states. Tax reform is one of the most common issues that constituents bring up to these elected officials.

The complicated tax code has made millions of Americans hate April 15 and has required many to hire accountants and lawyers to help them maneuver through the system.

Americans haven’t seen serious changes to the tax code since the Reagan administration. America is long overdue for sweeping tax reform.

Thanks...To Them......


Each year I am hired to go to Washington, DC, with the eighth grade class from Clinton, WI where I grew up, to videotape their trip. I greatly enjoy visiting our nation's capital, and each year I take some special memories back with me. This fall's trip was especially memorable. 

On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima memorial. This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history -- that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WW II .

Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial. I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, 'Where are you guys from?' 


I told him that we were from Wisconsin. 'Hey, I'm a cheese head, too! Come gather around, cheese heads, and I will tell you a story.' 

(It was James Bradley who just happened to be in Washington, DC, to speak at the memorial the following day. He was there that night to say good night to his dad, who had passed away. He was just about to leave when he saw the buses pull up. I videotaped him as he spoke to us, and received his permission to share what he said from my videotape. It is one thing to tour the incredible monuments filled with history in Washington, DC, but it is quite another to get the kind of insight we received that night.


When all had gathered around, he reverently began to speak. (Here are his words that night.)


'My name is James Bradley and I'm from Antigo, Wisconsin.  My dad is on that statue, and I wrote a book called 'Flags of Our Fathers'. It is the story of the six boys you see behind me.


'Six boys raised the flag. The first guy putting the pole in the ground is Harlon Block. Harlon was an all-state football player. He enlisted in the Marine Corps with all the senior members of his football team. They were off to play another type of game. A game called 'War.' But it didn't turn out to be a game. Harlon, at the age of 21, died with his intestines in his hands. I don't say that to gross you out, I say that 

because there are people who stand in front of this statue and talk about the glory of war. You guys need to  know that most of the boys in Iwo Jima were 17, 18, and 19 years old - and it was so hard that the ones who did make it home never even would talk to their families about it.

(He pointed to the statue) 'You see this next guy? That's Rene Gagnon from New Hampshire. If you took Rene's helmet off at the moment this photo was taken and looked in the webbing of that helmet, you would find a photograph of his girlfriend Rene put that in there for protection because he was scared. He was 18 years old. It was just boys who won the battle of Iwo Jima. Boys.  Not old men. 

'The next guy here, the third guy in this tableau, was Sergeant Mike Strank. Mike is my hero. He was the hero of all these guys. They called him the 'old man' because he was so old. He was already 24. When Mike would motivate his boys in training camp, he didn't say, 'Let's go kill some Japanese' or 'Let's die for our country' He knew he was talking to little boys. Instead he would say, 'You do what I say, and I'll get you home to your mothers.' 

'The last guy on this side of the statue is Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona. Ira Hayes was one of them who lived to walk off Iwo Jima. He went into the White House with my dad. President Truman told him, 'You're a hero.' He told reporters, 'How can I feel like a hero when 250 of my buddies hit the island with me and only 27 of us walked off alive?'

So you take your class at school, 250 of you spending a year together having fun, doing everything together. Then all 250 of you hit the beach, but only 27 of your classmates walk off alive. That was Ira Hayes. He had images of horror in his mind. Ira Hayes carried the pain home with him and eventually died dead drunk, face down, drowned in a very shallow puddle, at the age of 32 (ten years after this picture was taken). 

'The next guy, going around the statue, is Franklin Sousley from Hilltop, Kentucky . A fun-lovin' hillbilly boy. His best friend, who is now 70, told me, 'Yeah, you know, we took two cows up on the porch of the Hilltop General Store. Then we strung wire across the stairs so the cows couldn't get down. Then we fed them Epsom salts . 
Those cows crapped all night.' Yes, he was a fun-lovin' hillbilly boy. Franklin died osaltsn Iwo Jima at the age of 19. When the telegram came to tell his mother that he was dead, it went to the Hilltop General Store. A barefoot boy ran that telegram up to his mother's farm. The neighbors could hear her scream all night and into the morning. Those neighbors lived a quarter of a mile away 

'The next guy, as we continue to go around the statue, is my dad, John Bradley, from Antigo, Wisconsin, where I was raised. My dad lived until 1994, but he would never give interviews. When Walter Cronkite's producers or the New York Times would call, we were trained as little kids to say 'No, I'm sorry, sir, my dad's not here. He is in Canada fishing. No, there is no phone there, sir. No, we don't know when he is coming back.' My dad never fished or even went to Canada  Usually, he was sitting there right at the table eating his Campbell 's soup. But we had to tell the press that he was out fishing. He didn't want to talk to the press. 

'You see, like Ira Hayes, my dad didn't see himself as a hero. Everyone thinks these guys are heroes, 'cause they are in a photo and on a monument. My dad knew better. He was a medic. John Bradley from Wisconsin was a combat caregiver. On Iwo Jima he probably held over 200 boys as they died. And when boys died on Iwo Jima, they writhed and screamed, without any medication or help with the pain. 

'When I was a little boy, my third grade teacher told me that my dad was a hero. When I went home and told my dad that, he looked at me and said, 'I want you always to remember that the heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who did not come back. Did NOT come back.'

'So that's the story about six nice young boys. Three died on  Iwo Jima, and three came back as national heroes. Overall, 7,000 boys died on Iwo Jima in the worst battle in the history of the Marine Corps. My voice is giving out, so I will end here. Thank you for your time.' 

Suddenly, the monument wasn't just a big old piece of metal with a flag sticking out of the top. It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero. Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero  nonetheless. 

One thing I learned while on tour with my 8th grade students in DC
that is not mentioned here is: if you look at the statue very closely 
and count the number of 'hands' raising the flag, there are 13. When the man who made the statue was asked why there were 13, he simply said the 13th hand was the hand of God.

AND THIS IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF WHY YOU STAND FOR THE FLAG AND THE NATIONAL ANTHEM !!


A thought that would give a Democrat a headache....

Great Afterthought re: the China Shoplifting embarrassment...from Political Buddy Bill S.......


On Nov 15, 2017, at 7:06 PM, Fred 

Just imagine the brainpower that was at work in the international incident with the Donald saving the asses of three dumbfucks....over in China playing basketball.
 
These three Afro-Americans (notice—no racial slurs used !) who are guests in China, and they are probably TWICE the height of the locals, totally different in skin color, totally disabled by no local language skills, and they start wandering around in a upscale exclusive jewelry store!!!  Can you imagine the eyes and cameras and disguised police shoppers with  ALL eyes upon them.....AND THEY START SHOP LIFTING !!   HOLY SHIT !!!!    And, now even with all of their apologies etc. the liberals and their pocketed press will find some way to excuse them !!!   Trump knew about the incident before the China President did...and had to tell him about it.   And, of course he made a deal to save their stupid butts.  He should have made a deal that instead of total rescue and free flight home.....they had to do a few months of Chinese jail time and public service teaching basketball at a local high school.   It will be interesting to hear what Al Sharpton has to say about it.    Probably blame it on Bush !

PHOTO OF THE YEAR!!


This while the other young women are complaining because the gov't won't pay for their birth control!! God bless our troops!!! You'll never see this picture on the front of Time Magazine, or any other magazine.

We see lots of pictures of wounded male veterans but women vets get wounded and maimed too.
You may need to take a second, closer look though. The first thing I saw was a bunch of beautiful smiles.

Study this picture again. Let the story it tells sink in. These women and many others, as well as their male comrades, paid this price for our freedoms. And, they did it for less than what welfare recipients are paid!!! DID YOU GET THAT?!?

There is more patriotism and class in those 11 ladies pictured than the majority of Congress and the former White House combined!!! And a HELL of a lot more than those over-paid athletes who choose to "take a knee" when the National Anthem is played!!!

They risked these injuries (or death) FOR AMERICA ! GOD BLESS ALL OF THEM!!!

"I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist? Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy? Is it because of the Illuminati?

No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and the adoption of Democratic Party government dependency.

We have just had eight years of the first black president. Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes. I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault.

No one can solve this problem but black America. No one can throw enough money at it. We’ve tried that. Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends. I do care about your actions.

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crime in America. Of course, there is going to be a problem with police. And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people. Even Harvard said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live. Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community.

I for one am tired of being blamed. I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others. I don’t oppress anyone. I don’t hold anyone down. I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees. Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable? That makes me uncomfortable. It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing.

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America. Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world. If you are born in America you’ve won life’s economic lottery. Take advantage of it.

The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of cultural Marxism by our education system. They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on. All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that. Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it.

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played. Too many people died for that flag. You are free to protest but not then. I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that. The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem. There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property. This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America. They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Leftist multicultural agenda. Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged. Having more than one American culture is destroying the country. But then again, that is what the Left wants.

Do Black Lives Matter? It is your job to determine if this is a racist rant or just a review of factual data...

WHAT IF ALL THE BLACKS SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA, WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION:
Amount of people in poverty would drop - 34%,
The prison population would go down by -37%,
Welfare recipients would go down by - - - 42%,
Gang members would go down by - - - - - 53%
Chlamydia cases would go down - - - - - - 54%,
Homelessness would go down - - - - - - - -57%
Syphilis would go down - - - - - - - - - - - - 58%.
AIDS & HIV would go down by - - - - - - - -65%,
Gonorrhea would go down - - - - - - - - - - -69%,
Average ACT scores would go UP - - - - - 5.5 points.
Average IQ would go UP - - - - - - - - - - - -7.4 points, putting us 3rd in the world tied with Japan,
Average SAT scores would go UP almost - - - - -100 points,
The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year,

BUT DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 76% OF THEIR VOTING BASE!!!
And, many criminal defense attorneys would have to find another line of work!

Yes, Black lives DO matter!

Here is how many times keywords were spoken:
Wall Street: 23

VETERAN'S DAY WEEKEND. NFL BOYCOTT.. THE VA IS ASKING FOR SUPPORT FOR THEIR BOYCOTT NOVEMBER 12TH!!

"Fred's Corner" and millions of others are now calling for a complete National Boycott of the NFL for Sunday November 12th, which is Veteran’s Day Weekend. They are calling for a boycott of all football telecast, all fans, all ticket holders, stay away from attending any games, let them play to empty stadiums. They deserve it!!! 

Pass this post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin..There are plenty of ways, times and places to protest concerning one’s chosen cause, but to do so during a brief special time set aside to honor our nation’s flag and the bravery and lives of our nation’s military heroes, is inappropriate and disrespectful. Of course black lives matter, but so do the precious lives of millions of US soldiers (of all races) who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend and protect our nation’s rights and freedoms….and who most certainly deserve all of our respect. It’s not about Trump, its about all those who bravely and unselfishly serve and who have served our nation. The Star Spangled Banner is presented to honor all of them.”

Here are some "fun" NFL facts


In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.

In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure" eye black for breast cancer awareness.

In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem...)

In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.


So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression...all of a sudden!

      George Washington’s Church Is          Going to Rip Out His Memorial

The Virginia church that George Washington attended for two decades plans to tear out a memorial to the nation’s first president because the plaque could make some worshipers feel “unsafe or unwelcome.”
Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, where Washington became a founding member in 1773, will remove his memorial and a similar one to Robert E. Lee, The Washington Times reported. Church leaders say the memorials, which sit to the left and right of the
altar, have become too divisive and might be discouraging parishioners from attending services.
“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” the church leaders said, according to The Washington Times. “Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.”

Many groups have protested against public memorials to Confederate generals, such as Lee, and also to transformative presidents, such as Washington, Andrew Jackson, and even Abraham Lincoln.
The memorials at Christ Church in Alexandria were placed at the same time in 1870, months after Lee’s death. City residents chipped in for the plaques for both leaders, whose families had for many years been generous donors to the church’s endowment
Holy Shit!!!!   What is next?????

Flight Crew Takes A Knee And Walks Off, Leaving New Orleans Saints Stranded On Runway

The New Orleans Saints made the mistake of once again disrespecting our veterans, our country and our flag. After an embarrassing opening to a game with the worst ratings in Saints’ history, the players and coaches learned that their actions have consequences.
 
Both the pilot and co-pilot of the Boeing 737 the Saints use to travel are combat-hardened American heroes. They flew sorties over Baghdad with Saddam’s best weapons firing back. They fought with their lives for your freedom and watched many of their friends die. Today they took a stand for those brave souls:
 
“We couldn’t be a party to the disrespect. We waited until we were cleared and last off the runway for the night , walked out of the cockpit, took a knee and deplaned. They’re not going anywhere until tomorrow.”
 
Looks like the group of thugs should have just considered themselves lucky they’re allowed to make millions for playing a game and stood with respect like they’re told to do in the league rule book.
 
This week was the worst week in NFL history for ratings. Next week will be worse.
