    He wants to allow no more Transgenders in the military. I think he should follow that up with no more blacks, Muslims, hispanics, gays, women, native americans, etc.

    Only white males (like his sons and grandsons)will be allowed to sacrifice their lives for this country. (and Sessions will administer a blood test to make sure there isn’t a drop of any other race)

    Those he hates will be left behind to inherit the earth.

    Good point ebdoug! Also I think there should be more rather than less civil war monuments- every city should have them! I’ll even go so far as to let them choose their flavor: Grant or Sherman…

    Interesting story about Sherman. My great Grandfather John Wise son of the governor of Virginia wrote the book “The End of an Era” about growing up before the Civil war. Sherman was in the navy and docked in Rio de Janeiro two days before Christmas in 1846. Henry Wise liaison to Brazil at the time saw the very young sailor Sherman wondering lost on the street and invited him to Christmas dinner. Henry Wise apologized to Sherman about Henry’s wife being absent as she was imminently due. John Wise was born two days later. John Wise learned this story of his birth from Sherman after the war at a dinner in New York City. (that is the way the book starts) So we will take the Sherman statue in honor of my great grandfather who was really too young to fight for the south. He did anyway as the very poor movie produced in 2014 “Field of Lost Shoes” shows.

    Imagine a civil war started over racist monuments erected (long) after the last Civil War. How ironic would THAT be? Only in ‘Murica!
