    NO RESPECT The sickening vandals who attacked an RAF memorial know nothing of Bomber Command’s bravery and sacrifice

    This is the sixth time that the RAF Bomber Command monument has been vandalized.

    Two Members of “Heirs to the Confederacy” Group Charged With Vandalizing UNC Slave Memorial With Urine, Racial Slurs

    Police for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have arrested two members of a group called Heirs to the Confederacy for allegedly defacing a slave memorial on campus with racist graffiti.

    Police charged Nancy Rushton McCorkle, 50, and Ryan Francis Barnett, 31, with vandalism and ethnic intimidation on Monday, according to UNC police. Barnett was also charged with public urination, and both were charged with larceny for stealing a university flag.

    What I donít get is why we ( some) are we so infatuated in absolving ancestors fighting 150 years ago fighting a war that was politically about the right to own another human being, but we have no issues condemning our ancestors 500 years ago doing the same thing to the Aztecs.

    Yep. I guess while we are at it the majority of the Nazis shouldíve been absolved because the Treaty of Versailles nearly destroyed Germany, and the Nazisís main goal were to overturn the Stipulations of Versailles and not necessarily to kill Jews.

    Funny how a state that goes to war over states rights wants to micromanage what every town in Alabama does.

    Want to ban plastic bags in your city? Wonít be able to do so soon.

    Next is wresting control over pet stores from cities and turning it over to the Ag department (already paralyzed by lack of resources), in order to keep cities from outlawing puppy mills. Our legislators don't waste any time in going low, once they get to Montgomery...
