One by one the progressive mayors and college presidents across the south have been chipping away at not only our heritage, but the honor of fallen heroes, many of who died in the great 'War for Southern Independence'. Actually those who would tear down these Confederate Monuments could care less about the statues themselves. It's not about these pieces of stone and bronze stained by the years. It's a power struggle between progressives and conservatives. I thought this was settled, a least for a short while with the election of Donald Trump. I was wrong, and now I fear we are on the losing side once again. Some of us are fighting back. The purpose of this blog is to inform you there is hope. We are attempting to raise funds to erect plaques honoring our fallen Confederate boys in gray. Plaques that will grace the town squares of small towns in the South where they will be welcome. Towns where the voters still have some common sense, unlike those idiots in the large cities and those poor lost young people in our universities. All denotations will be appreciated with the lion's share going to preserve the memory of those who fought and died in that great conflict.

Free Speech

Free speech is a fundamental right guaranteed to each United States citizen and it deserves to be defended and preserved if our nation is to remain great. Under the banner of free speech fall the reports by the press, the rights of individual opinions and ideals, artistic expression and the criticism of our government. While individuals may be disrespected, inconvenienced or offended by the use of free speech, society as a whole benefits from its existence.

The existence of free speech insures that each voice is heard and acknowledged and although our opinions may differ and elicit fiery debate, the opportunity to learn and create a pursuit of truth and understanding is invaluable. Our nation's strength lies in our ability to express our opinions, often in opposition to government, which creates debate and ushers in change. Free speech is the foundation of the United States' greatness. To stifle the voice of humanity is to extinguish the flame of democracy which burns bright throughout the world. To limit the ability to speak ones conscience is to stifle the voice of humanity.
