I know this is a subject of debate that has risen the the congressional level, but it is ludacris that it has made it that far. I'm taking about the destruction of our national monuments that have defined our history. Good or bad, right or wrong, these are part of the growth of this great nation. Systematically erasing history and only keeping the parts that suit you will only create chaos and we are doomed to repeat it. The 4 million police officers in this country that protect the street are all being scrutinized by the 7 individuals you have seen in the news this year. A small minority of mob rule groups have snowballed into a "Tear down everything" legislation. I bet these people don't know about Mt. Rushmore or St. Augustine. They will have a heck of a time destroying Plymouth Rock. I have served in the military during wartime. My son has served during wartime, my brother has served during wartime and both grandfather's have served during wartime. Each of us in Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, and to see all of this stupidity in the news makes me wonder why defend against foreign enemies when we have our own terrorists here ( a majority of them in Washington). One last bit before I end it. All of you pro athletes that refuse to stand during the National Anthem, you can kiss my ass.
