Stepped in What ?

Ya gotta be careful where ya walk on the internet !
It seems that unknowingly I was a member of a page that is run by a racist.

Unreconstructed Confederates [X]

is ran by a fellow named Al Wilson;

I made this post the other day --

Ya Can't keep a good Flag Down !

I got into a discussion with the Admin, Mr Wilson over this picture

this is the discussion =

Well Al booted me from the page and deleted the conversation.

But not before I took a picture of the discussion !

I went to Al's home page on Facebook and found this =

Yep I stepped in a pile of crap !

So I blocked Al, and went through the list of folks who liked this post and blocked them.

If you are a member of his Facebook page I'd suggest leaving it !

If you are a fan of this type of racist garbage please take me off your friends list and block me !

This is Mr Wilson -

Who has failed to heed these words -

“Sirs, you have no reason to be ashamed of your Confederate dead;
 see to it they have no reason to be ashamed of you.”
Robert Lewis Dabney, Chaplain for Stonewall Jackson.

Mr Wilson you by your words attempt to bring shame and dishonor to many !

Not only our Confederate dead.

but men like my father

He served in WWII and Korea,
 so that "people" like you have the freedom to be what you are.

Ya can't keep a Good Flag Down !

The folks at the Lane Armistead SCV Camp #1772 in Mathews County, Virginia completed work over the weekend on their fourth roadside battle flag installation! 

At 60', this is their tallest pole to date and flies in a great location on Rt. 14 just outside of Mathews, where a dedication ceremony will be held this Saturday at noon. 

Ya can't keep a Good Flag Down !

 Proposed Monument Resolution FAILS !

December 11, 2017 9:15 p.m.

City Council resolution to ask General Assembly permission to move the monuments on Monument Avenue FAILS SOUNDLY. 6-2

Councilman Newbille abstained
Yays were Councilmen Jones (sponsor) and Robertson

The fight is far from over.  There is still a commission appointed to "study" the issue,  but this is a HUGE WIN and the result of a lot of hard work and grass roots organizing and thanks to many of YOU who contacted City Council and let your voice be heard!

Keep on Rockin ---

Where some folks see a rock, I see an opportunity !

A river rock, and some imagination --

Add an unreconstructed VA state seal,
and a wonderful quote, and you have something Yankee's can't understand !

It's all about a love for Virginia, her history and heritage.

I can place this rock where it may stay for years until discovered, 
but when someone finds it the message will show ! 

Yes I Love Virginia !

Merry Christmas to all !

Dave Tatum.

Leaving a Rock ---

, "In Christian lore, rocks are a powerful symbol of the Lord." There are many places in the Old Testament Bible that compare God to a rock. One being Psalm 18:2 -- "The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my strength, in whom I will trust, my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."

So the placing of a rock on a tombstone could represent a belief that the deceased is with God.*

 Leaving a stone or pebble is a gesture of appreciation for the strong and lasting impression they have made on your life. Stones left by others show a long-term influence in their lives as well.  What a wonderful way to leave a lasting tribute of love and honor at the grave site.**

I've made some rocks to be left on Confederate Graves --
