The National Statuary Hall Collection. We find it amusing that inside the U.S. Capitol resides a collection of statues liberals won’t like. After all their vituperation about Confederate Battle Flags and the removal of some Civil War monuments you might find who’s there amazing. Not one peep from anybody about it either.

Wade Hampton – South Carolina – Confederate soldier and supporter

Robert E. Lee – Virginia – Commander of the Confederate Army

Alexander Hamilton Stephens – Georgia – Vice President of the Confederacy

Joseph Wheeler – Alabama – Confederate cavalry leader.

Edward Douglass White – Louisiana – Confederate soldier.

Perhaps one of them will fall on Harry Reid…When it does I hope it says Washington redskins on the back…

With statues, I don’t understand the hoopla. A statue doesn’t have to represent a good person, it can simply be historical. You can point at it and tell your kids, “See that guy? He was an ass and here’s why…”

But on the Confederate Flag I’ve “evolved” since publishing this: Before reading this book (and a couple others I have in the works), I had no idea just how truly evil and despicable the Confederacy was. I was never real happy about seeing a Confederate Flag on display, but now… now I’m disgusted and angry when I see one. Certain things should never be forgotten.

Speaking of statues, has Lurch weighed in on the Brussels bombings yet? He may have to bring out the heavy weapons this time and hold a hootenany in Belgium.

He’s searching for James Taylor as we type…

He may have to dig up Jerry Garcia for this one.

I saw him in a clip showing Barry enjoying the baseball game. He was having a good old time…yucking it up. A stark reminder of the chasm between the elites and the rest of us.

I’m sure that when he knows the cameras are on him, he’ll put on his stern, grave face…and say something he’ll have to walk back the next day.

[edit] Hey C02, I tried to shrink those pics in the edit function to save space & bandwidth but I screwed it all up and had to exit. I know it can be done but any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Open them in Paint, click the “resize” button and then select “pixels” set the pic to 640×480 or whatever is close, and save it.
