The Sweet Virginia Breeze !


Lee and Jackson ride again in Charlottesville!
 It looks like the sweet Virginia Breeze was too much for the illegal tarps overnight.

All Glory to God !

All honor to the Confederate Soldier !

UPDATE !

 The tarps on the Lee and Jackson statues were removed again late Saturday night.

The Charlottesville Police Department said the tarps were removed after 11 p.m. Saturday.

The city has since replaced the tarps as of Sunday morning.

After several similar occurrences last year, the city installed a fence and put signs up which say "city personnel only, no trespassing."

Police said no arrests have been made at this time regarding this incident.
.



Whoever did it - Give em a medal !




Update II

 The tarps on the Lee and Jackson statues have been removed for a THIRD TIME in the past 24 hours.

Image may contain: sky, night and outdoor

Lee and Jackson are free from their illegal coverings for the night, as Charlottesville PD report no attempt to recover will take place until tomorrow morning. A Charlottesville judge will rule tomorrow on the motion filed to have them removed based on violation of Virginia law. We expect the final removal will be at the expense of Charlottesville City Council.

God bless those who continue to stand up to tyranny and injustice.

A Day's Pay !



I wonder how many state employees that are offended by Confederate Statues,
 declined the day's pay for Lee / Jackson Day ?






Update !

This rock seems popular !
 I make these rocks and place them in various locations, some may get thrown in the trash. Some may be taken home. Some may not be found for many years (if ever). But if just one puts a smile on someones face all the effort will be worth it !
