Yes. You are right. It is fitting tribute to America's long gone "better days" that Endeavor will be housed in a California museum. Future California inhabitants will look upon that monument and wonder what it was used for - if they bother themselves to wonder at all.

After the 60s 70s revolutionaries *(druggies)**(Godless secularist internationalist dreamers)* and their idiot "love children" seized control of California and reordered its society along revolutionary lines there was no going back.

Yes. I agree. You are obviously much too young as well as much too poorly educated to recall the early days of the revolution. During those early days there was a joke circulating that portended to be a post-revolutionary view of America. As the story went, barely literate Americans were sitting around the fire on their haunches, swatting away flies with cow tails.

Willard [the wing nut] Mitt Romney has come out with another political attack ad, only problem with that is:

The example of a closed factory was the one he and Bain Capital sold out from under those American employees.

The Alabama Selma City Council has voted unanimously to stop work on a new monument to honor a Civil War general who was an early leader in the Ku Klux Klan.

The council voted September 25, 2012 Tuesday night.
