No Columbus Day In LA (or San Francisco) – Gone With The Wind!

Roanoke Times, 8-31-2017, Pg 7: LA City Council voted to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day.

Instead of Banning ‘Gone With The Wind’ movies and books, perhaps it should become the basis for a postmortem Court Marshal for Crimes Against Humanity committed by Gen. Sherman in his campaign against ‘domestic civilian Americans’ down the Shenandoah Valley and his “March To The Sea”!

Obama’s Red Guards (AntiFa) Tear Down Columbus Statue

-
Christopher Columbus statue destroyed in New York park
Police additionally told NBC affiliate WNBC they’re looking into whether it was inspired by the violence in Charlottesville, Va., which was partially sparked by the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue.
Since that time New York City and other municipalities have considered removing statues of Columbus — whose legacy has been criticized for his treatment of native populations.
-
Now they’ve gone and done it!   A statue too far!
Do they not know they have disrespected a major figure of the Italian-American community?
Have they not seen the God Father and  Goodfellas?
Good luck with this left-wing Jihad!
-
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s monument commission is considering whether a statue of the famed explorer should be removed from Columbus Circle in Midtown Manhattan.
De Blasio wants to rid NYC of bad characters.
He should start with two of his closest buds:

GDP Up To 3% -- Where’s The PravdaMedia Headlines?


-
How pathetic!  The Pravda Media just cannot highlight this major checkpoint that is a reflection of the quality of life for the American People! 
-
The GDP is The primary metric for economic activity, job growth and economic health for the American People.
-
Why can’t the Pravda Media just put aside their total immersion in the Obama-DNC institution and highlight this indicator of better economic things to come for the American People.
-
The top headline banner of the Roanoke Times, Pg 1, 8-30-2017 was:
RIVALRY RENEWED  WV vs VT
Really?  ---- What a sad sack of losers!
-
US economic growth revised up to 3 percent in Q2
President Donald Trump hailed the latest figures, declaring "we are really on our way." Trump said if the economy is able to sustain growth at a 3 percent rate, it would create 12 million new jobs and $10 trillion in new economic activity over the next decade.

KUDOs To Roanoke Times For Math-STEM Editorial


-
RT Editorial: Go to math class
Currently the proportion of STEM-related workers in Region 2 is 20 percent below the national average.”
-
How did we ever move:
STEM:  Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (including Programming)
To the bottom-shelf of our educational priorities?
-
How did liberal arts and law become The preferred courses of study?
Oh Right – the schools of engineering and science are a subset of The Colleges of Arts and we all know who’s in charge of those.
Just look at UVa’s list of departments in the College of Arts and Science as an example of the minimization of ‘The Science’ programs. 
Who takes this stuff – and what jobs do they get – and who’s paying for this stuff?
-
The slighting of math and science starts in elementary school where ‘the hard courses’ are viewed as something to be avoided.
Also, many math and science graduates who intended to become teachers have been ‘hired-away’ by industry leaving a shortage of math-science teachers in our class rooms.
-
We have let our core competency of math and science slip away to others who attend our top schools and then get hired by our hi-tech companies with Visa’s and then take their skills and knowledge back to their home countries where they out-engineer us.
-
Many of these companies have established manufacturing plants in the US that support many hands-on jobs.  However, the profits from these products go back to ‘their homeland’ and support the R&D for new products that continues their leadership success.
Another sad result of the adverse consequences of the left-wing’s ‘War on Big-Bad-Profits’!
-
If we are to regain our product leadership in STEM, we have to start in elementary school.  For example, you cannot take the required STEM course sequences in high school if you haven’t taken and mastered Algebra in middle school!
Parents, teachers, guidance counselors and mentors must encourage and assist those students who have the aptitude to succeed in these courses and ultimately STEM jobs.
We go out of our way to mentor football players – why not STEM players?

Roanoke Times Editorial: More Free Campaign Ads For Northam


-
Editorial: Meet the rural liberals making a case for rural America
-
How much ‘in-kind’ free campaign support can the RT Editors give to Northam without violating election laws?
Oh Right – it’s not free ads, it’s news!  Really?
-
-
The McAuliffe-Northam so called ‘team’ have been in office for four unpleasant years.  Never mind what they say – what have they done for rural Virginia?
-
A Few Examples of the McAuliffe-Northam Distain For Rural Virginia:
-
They have been generals in Obama’s War on Coal – with devastating negative impacts!
-
They have been coddling violent illegal immigrants through their Sanctuary City Jihad whose violence came to Bedford.
-
-
They have allocated state funds to the advantage of those at the beltway to the detriment of rural Virginia.
-
They have struck down and marginalized most of the legislation passed by the Rural Virginia Legislators that would help rural Virginians:
-
They have done their ultimate to put men in the girls bathrooms, locker-rooms and showers in our schools.
-
The Roanoke Times Editorial Ads for Northam neglects to focus on the REAL Difference between these two candidates.
These differences are important to All Virginians and Gillespie will represent ALL Virginians and be an inclusive leader.

Hypocrite VP Joe Biden slams Trump

-
 “He wrote, "Today we have an American president who has publicly proclaimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and Klansmen and those who would oppose their venom and hate."”
-
-
Really?  Trump has made very clear his moral equivalency is his disdain for all violent anti-American elements!
And that Includes Obama’s Red Guards:
Those domestic terrorists apparently are now called:  AntiFa
-
We here in southern Virginia remember Joe Biden from 2012 who wasn’t embarrassed to be a Race-Baiter:

ACLU Confused By “Free Speech”


-
Roanoke Times, 8-24-2017, Pg 1, 6: ACLU rethinks free speech stance
-
In harmony with their stated mission, the ACLU went to court to support the “Free Speech” rally in Charlottesville.
-
Big Problems developed when the mayor of Charlottesville and the Governor failed to plan and implement a crowd-riot control plan.
The rally deteriorated into a nasty riot.  A deranged person drove his car into a crowd hurting many and killing a young woman.
-
The ACLU now has a serious issue.  Not wanting to ‘out’ the mayor and governor for gross incompetence and malfeasance (they’re both left-wing democrats); the ACLU is now going to determine what ‘free speech’ they support and what ‘free speech’ they will Not support.
They never had that problem with the Black Panthers, Weather UnderGround or the Black Lives Matter Gangs!
-
Left-wing, liberal, progressives can be so selective!
If they don’t follow their mandate, how can they keep their credibility and tax-exempt status?  Where’s Lois Learner when we need her?

Crooked-Hillary’s ‘Skin Crawled’ – How Gross Is That Image?


-
'My Skin Crawled': Hillary Clinton Opens Up on Debate Moment (with Trump hovering behind her)
-
-
Talk about ‘skin crawl’ let’s look at VP Joe Biden doing ‘a job’ on Ash Carter’s wife – at a news conference no less!
Makes one’s ‘skin crawl’ to think what he did to her later.
Joe Biden “The Prince Of Nasty”
-
-
-
-
Talk about ‘skin crawling’:
-
Did Crooked Hillary’s ‘skin crawl’ when Bill’s sexual abuse victims describe their ordeals?
-
Did Crooked Hillary’s ‘skin crawl’ when reading the details of Bill’s sexual abuse of Monica (on the front page of the NYT)?
It made everyone else’s ‘skin crawl' !
-
Crooked Hillary’s attacks upon Bill’s sexual abuse victims made everyone’s ‘skin crawl’ who cared about ‘Bill’s Sexual War on Women’!
Hillary' skin:  Not So Much

Crooked-Hillary and your Pravda Media – spare us any future details of your skin or any other part of your being.

Phoenix: Trump Strikes Back At PravdaMedia -- Milder Than Twain


-
Trump’s rant against the PravdaMedia at his Phoenix rally appears in-tune with Mark Twain’s View of The PravdaMedia!
"Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your Honor. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse."  Mark Twain

Roanoke Looses And Then Covets Sour Grapes Clutter

Sour Grapes Clutter – Really?

Charlottesville Mayor Draped In Black (The Real Collusion?)


-
Charlottesville City Council votes to cover statues of Lee, Jackson with black fabric to mourn Heyer
-
-
Instead of draping inanimate historical granite statutes, The Charlottesville Democrat Mayor Signer should be draped in black-tar and feathered and then run out of town on a rail!
-
It wasn’t the statues that failed the obligations and responsibilities of “Protecting the Public from Harm”!
It was incompetent Mayor Signer and his duplicitous bud Democrat Governor McAuliffe!
-
The ‘security plan’ for this event was so flawed that conspiracy-theory people (google the web) are claiming there was collusion to cause chaos as a pretext for mobilizing ‘the left’ for the upcoming election.
Now that the Mayor’s malfeasance resulted in disaster – let’s throw a rug over some statutes.  Really?  How sad is that?

Austin Texas Democrat Mayor Adler A Pathetic Slavery Hypocrite


-
UT-Austin removes Confederate statues in the middle of the night
-
Austin (Democrat) Mayor Steve Adler will head a group of mayors from around the country in a national anti-bigotry effort that arose in response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend.
-
-
Mayor Adler should spend time in the state museum in the lower-level of the state capital building!
He would discover that Texas was a major slave entity long before the Confederates and the War Between the States that Texas joined on the South’s side.
-
He should be tearing down the statutes of Stephen Austin and Sam Houston and the other Anglo-Mexican-Texans who brought slaves into Mexico where slavery was already outlawed and then launched a war against Mexico in order to size the land and ensure acceptance of slavery.
-
Mayor Adler – stop your hypocrisy and show your anti-bigotry leadership and get all those Stephen Austin and Sam Houston statutes down and then rename those two cities to some appropriate Mexican names.
Don't bother to stop by Virginia until those jobs are done.
-
“The enslavement of African Americans was the curse of early American life, and Texas was no exception. The Mexican government was opposed to slavery, but even so, there were 5000 slaves in Texas by the time of the Texas Revolution in 1836. By the time of annexation a decade later, there were 30,000; by 1860, the census found 182,566 slaves -- over 30% of the total population of the state.”

Risking Eyesight: The Eclipse And Lady Godiva


-
There is a tsunami of “don’t look at the eclipse” (without proper glasses) in the media this week.
-
The eclipse is here right now!
It's 2:30, it's getting darker!
I don’t have special glasses!
Should I take a risk and look?
-
One is reminded of Lady Godiva's Famous Ride Through Coventry in 1057.
The King proclaimed: look and you will loose your eyesight.
-
Old Peeping Tom decided:
I’m going to risk the left eye!
-
There’s a statue of Lady Godiva in Coventry
-
-
-
-
Rumor has it that the Charlottesville NOW Girls are on their way to tear down this reminder of Peeping Tom’s offense.
-
It is alleged that the memorial to Peeping Tom’s Left Eye is on the back of every US Dollar Bill.  What to do with that?

A Poe-Purée Of Recent Dysfunctional News


-
6 police officers shot in 3 US cities Friday night; 2 dead
BUT our PravdaMedia was too busy covering the rallies and statues to notice!  How sad is that?
-
-
Roanoke Times,8-20-2017, Pg 1, 6:  Virginia coal is rebounding, but is Donald Trump to thank?
Really?  After years of embracing and supporting Obama’s War on Coal and its devastating impact on South-West Virginia and the Roanoke Valley, the RT Editors are now opining that coal has stabilized and it can’t possibly be credited to Trump!  What a sad group!  Get a life people!
Norfolk Southern And Obama’s War On Coal

Roanoke Times, 8-13-2017, Pg 3: Private body cameras questioned in L.A.
After years of intense Obama Racial-War on Police in which he was going to nail all those bad racist and out-of-control cops by forcing them to wear Go-Pro cameras, NOW, all of a sudden, we changed our minds.
Turns out the cop-go-pros are showing what we all knew all along, that in the vast majority of cases, the cops are acting responsibly and within the law and the bad guys are there for all to see on video.  Talk about Karma!  Be careful what you ask for in life!

What are the Democrats doing to fix “their” profoundly broken program?  Answer – Nothing!

Roanoke Times, 8-17-2017, Pg Va2-1: Mark Warner (D-Va-US Senator) pledges to end state’s food deserts (at a new grocery store in Danville).
Perhaps the good democrat senator could start with a list of reasons why small stores, grocery stores and even convenience stores are hard to find in center cities.
Answer:  Crime!
These stores and the people who work in them are the constant and intense victims of crime! And what places get burned down when folks are angry?  How does that relate to their insurance costs and coverage which usually excludes riots?
Question To Mark Warner:  What are you going to do to solve these root causes of “The Food Deserts”?   You forgot to address any of this in your news and photo op!
Just keep supporting Sanctuary Cities --- aiding and abetting urban-criminals – what a leader!
How about you Senator standing “guard duty” at one of the Danville center-city convenience stores every night for a week?
Suggestion: have the Roanoke Times editors help you on the midnight to 7 shift.

USA Today, 8-11-2017s, Pg 5A: GOP loosens government grip on land.
More than 25% of the country is owned by the federal government and that doesn’t count the State and Local lands!
Talk about Socialism and Communism Government Ownership!
This was the context in which Trump slammed Obama’s 'massive federal land grab’, and called for review of national monuments that were used as the guise for this federal abuse.
Let’s all sing along with Woody: This Land is Your Land – NOT!

Boston “Free Speech Rally” Was Subdued -- Good People Won


-
Congratulations to the Gov of Massachusetts, the Mayor Of Boston and all those police officers that protected the public. 
The Gov. and Mayor focused on their responsibilities in stark contrast to Virginia where McAuliffe and Singer were focused on making political statements and posturing at the expense of Public Safety.  Sad!

Focusing on the anti-American KKK thugs and the horrors of slavery in a New England setting; and specifically in Massachusetts is very appropriate.
Massachusetts was the first slave-holding colony in New England
Most, if not all, of the limited 17th century New England slave trade was in the hands of Massachusetts. Boston merchants made New England's first attempt at direct import of slaves from West Africa to the West Indies in 1644 …. by 1676, however, Boston ships had pioneered a slave trade to Madagascar, and they were selling black human beings to Virginians by 1678.
Massachusetts merchants and ships were supplying slaves to Connecticut by 1680 and Rhode Island by 1696.
