So, it's all coming together, I can tell by your posts you have the intellect of an 8 year old so that makes you perfect for puppetmaster.
Your father cries that puppetmaster is up your culo and not him. Do you like making your incest pedophile father cry? Why do you do that to your own own father?

General Robert E. Lee turned down the job of General of the Union Army because he was a citizen of Virginia. In those days patriotism was a meaning thing to those who were born in a state in North America. There was no such thing as U.S. citizenship until the 14th Amendment in 1879.

Today U.S. citizenship means little. Yesterday, former native-born U.S. citizen, Vic Wild won a gold medal in the Olympics for Russia. His wife remains a loyal native-born Russian.

Politicians and amnesty have created a class of residents who are legally U.S., citizens but are still loyal to the country they came from. As soon as they get citizenship, they lay down their U.S. flags and pick up that of their homeland. They couldn't care less whether our president is a citizen of this country. In fact, they are busy trying to change the law that requires him to be a U.S. citizen.

Considering that the street originally named for General Robert E. Lee is on Fort Bliss, government property, I guess we can safely assume that it was NOT El Paso politicians, but the racist Obama, with his boastful pen and cell phone, behind the iconoclastic change in its name.

We condemned the blowing up of those graven Hindu images in the side of a mountain in Afghanistan that were there long before the Taliban took over and destroyed them., Yet we tolerate the same type of conduct in this country as long as it's done by a "give 'em a pass" blacks.

Many streets in the U.S. have been re-named to honor MLK, but I have not seen a one that had been previously named after another PERSON. That's the iconoclastic aspect of where Obama departs from American tradition and is deliberately promoting racism and his own radical agenda. Obama's buddy Jeremiah Wright talked about "the chickens coming home to roost." Well, his and his parishioner, Obama's, will also come home to roost.

Because Vic Wild won a gold medal for Russia means citizenship means little today. Now that was a scholarly deduction. Let me guess you are a Rhode Scholar and attended Kalmity Kollege and majored in circus acts.

Translation: I have no argument in rebuttal, only meaningless, illiterate drivel in a vain attempt to detract from the message; or put another way: I have no answer so I will attack the messenger. In kindergarten they called it ad hominem argument, or no argument at all because of general stupidity.The stupidity of Petro and DC Dave is contagious and they have finally beaten me down to their level because I have picked up their habits. I never graduated from any college but would like for you to think that I am educated, even though my subconscious tells me that is futile. My inability to use logic or advance a cogent, germane argument betrays my low IQ, my drop-out, loser status and explains my social hostility.

You forgot to mention that you also fried what little brain you had with drugs years ago. You know that you are no longer able to think clearly but since misery loves company you are an advocate of legalizing drug use, an advocate that everyone ignores.

To illustrate the apparent deliberateness of the Government’s selection of Robert E. Lee Blvd. to change to Buffalo Soldier Blvd., here is a partial list of streets on Fort Bliss that are not named after anybody in particular that could have been selected to honor the Buffalo Soldiers. Some of them are much more prominent that Robert E. Lee Blvd.

Railroad St.
Torch St.
Grapeshot Rd.
Club St.
Army Ave.
Sergeant Major Dr.
Staff Sergeant Dr.
Master Sergeant Dr.
Liberty Expressway
Loop 375 from Montana to Railroad Drive is in Fort Bliss
Old Ironsides Dr.
Purple Heart Blvd.
Ordinance Road
Medic Ave.
Quartermaster Avenue.

Since no local voice was ever raised to question this iconoclastic move by Obama, it helps us understand why El Paso will always be considered an enclave of something other than Texans.

Anyone who disagrees with the change in name is a traitor and fornicator. The decision has been made and it's up to all of us to support it wholeheartedly. To do otherwise lends aid and comfort to the enemy.

As the 800 members of the Texas Brigade moved across the Widow Tapp’s fields, Lee rode with them. By the time the leading ranks had reached the middle of the clearing it became apparent that he intended to remain with them.‘Go back, General Lee. Go back!’ came the cry. In the recollection of one onlooker,‘Five or six of his staff would gather around him, seize him, his arms, his horse’s reins, but he shook them off and moved forward.’ Venable, who was also present, recalled that the ‘gallant General Gregg… turning his horse toward General Lee remonstrated with him.’ Lee eventually took Gregg’s hint and began to fall back while, fired by Lee’s inspiration, Gregg’s 800 soldiers charged into a Union meat grinder that killed or wounded all but 250 of them. The Texans and Arkansans gave their bodies to slow the Northern onslaught. The Union troops broke their own momentum to stop and gun down Gregg’s men.

Coming up to support Gregg was Brig. Gen. Evander Law’s Alabama Brigade. One of Law’s men later recollected seeing Lee and thinking that he ‘appeared to be very much perturbed over his misfortune and [it was] the only time I ever saw him excited.’ Lee repeated the scene with the Texas Brigade when told who the new troops were, crying,‘God bless the Alabamians. Alabama soldiers, all I ask of you is to keep up with the Texans.’ Once more Lee’s fabled charisma was working.‘It was impossible not to feel that every man that passed him was, for the time being, a hero,’ wrote an officer on the scene. An unabashed Lee admirer in the Alabama ranks thought the general ‘looked as though he ought to have been and was the monarch of the world.’"

Dammit, Petro you can't remember how to spell for five minutes. We truckers renamed you "Anal-ist," Got it? Now start spelling it right or I won't let you ride as my salami holseter anymore. The truckers got together and thought up that name because they thought it was more becoming of you and your career as a tranny that prefers it in the culo.

You're the anal queen, Mayhew. You're not the least bit clever nor can you escape from your repeated admissions in here that you are a true cuckold and sissy. Now go clean out your bung before Sven comes over so he can drill you properly.

So Obama is taking down the name of a real hero to "honor" a bunch of pica ninnies that have always been more trouble than they were worth. These criminal deserters from Fort Dävis built the village of el muläto across the river from Redford, TX which understandably became and still is a nest for fuzzy-headed, half-breed outlaws.
