We need to be reminded - even though the PC destroyers would have us not.

You can not use the argument that this symbol of racism is educational as your reason to leave it up if you're unwilling to educate people about it, right there on the spot. Provide a plaque or remove the racist statue.

If American history is being taught in our schools, then everyone should know the good and bad sides of Thomas Jefferson. I don't think we need to have a sign explaining that.

If people want to know the history of Thomas Jefferson then they need to research it and come to their own conclusions. Interpretive signs can be, and most likely will be, used to push one towards one conclusion over the other, depending on what message about the statute they want conveyed.

The real question is - what is your opinion of graduates of UM? Where I live, it's not good at all. No one around here has any respect for UM grads, and rightfully so.

If people want to know more, do the research.

If we're going to start providing context about the lives of men honored by statues, I suggest starting with George Floyd.

He was one of the Fathers of our Nation. Things were different then, and times have changed. People need to get over themselves.

People will remember, that it costs way too much to go to the store, to buy overpriced food, and not having enough money to pay for it. Hamburger helper without hamburger, is already real for many families. And it is going to get much worse, thanks to Joe Biden. LGB

The Dems are just acting like sore losers right now. You can bet that they would change their tune when they're back in the minority and couldn't use the filibuster themselves.

It would be pretty dumb for the dems to do that. It will be their only protection after mid terms. But I hope they do. I will laugh my, well you know the rest.

Don't laugh off too many body parts. The gluteus maximus muscle group is important to allow the body to roll around on the floor while laughing hysterically at FJB's flailing policy failures, left's reactions to SCOTUS rulings, etc. Buy popcorn now before Bidenflation makes it too expensive. FJB

The major policy swings to left and right, with presidents using executive orders on their first day in office to cancel the previous president's policies, is really bad for this country. Getting rid of filibuster will make this worse. We need policies the vast majority agree on, especially energy.

Those stupid mfers don't realize it'll end up being used against them when they lose power. Plus, just because you can't ram through everything you want, doesn't mean you get to change the rules whenever you want. Abolish the SCOTUS, end the filibuster...who's really threatening democracy here?

They changed them for judges. Giving Trump tons of judges confirmed. Did they learn nothing from that mistake? The rules exist fir a reason. Dems won't always be in power. Beware of unintended consequences.

Trump judges are doing a great job: overturning RvW, cutting the legs out from under the EPA, allowing people to have guns. Even 9th circus court said no gun discrimination against 18 year olds. Dems can't rely on legislating their unpopular agenda from the bench anymore, which is really good. FJB
