Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

I wonder what they’re going to do with all those statues the Left is
tearing down?   Can I have them?

I might put a few around the perimeter of my back yard, looking in
toward the yard.  Dress up the place a bit.  Put some nice hostas around
them.  St. Francis of Assisi.  Robert E. Lee. Christopher Columbus. 
George Washington.  Are they tearing down Aphrodite?  I’ll take her, for

Maybe put a fire ring in the corner of the yard so I could enjoy a
“recreational fire” with a few cold ones while I admire intelligence and
beauty.  Make a nice change of pace for a guy who lives in St. Paul.

I’ve taken to going to churches that have no hymns written in the past 100 years.

I could see doing the same as re art, soon enough.

  1. I’ve taken to going to churches that have no hymns written in the past 100 years.

    Oh My God, Joe, I am so with you on that.

    It is bad enough that modern church architecture is uglier than sin. These days, you can’t tell the difference between a church and a Wells Fargo (other than the steeple swooping skyward like a skate board ramp).

    And they bring drums into church. DRUMS for God Sake!

    But what’s worst of all are the hymns – broken down into the following two subcategories:

    1) Those that debuted on Sesame Street.
    2) Those which pilfer melodies from popular music.

    There’s a hymn titled “Canticle of the Turning” based on the melody, “Star of the County Down” and I get smacked every time I bellow out.

    Near Banbridge town, in the County Down
    One morning in July
    Down a boreen green came a sweet colleen
    And she smiled as she passed me by.

    Then there is “Be Still My Soul” based on “Finlandia” and I sing

    Oi Suomi, katso, sinun päiväs koittaa
    Yön uhka karkoitettu on jo pois
    Ja aamun kiuru kirkkaudessa soittaa
    Kuin itse taivahan kansi sois
    Yön vallat aamun valkeus jo voittaa
    Sun päiväs koittaa, Oi synnyinmaa

    Sorry, I lied. I don’t know Finnish, so I use the English translation.

    Finland, behold, thy daylight now is dawning,
    the threat of night has now been driven away.
    The skylark calls across the light of morning,
    the blue of heaven lets it have its sound,
    and now the day the powers of night is scorning:
    thy daylight dawns, O Finland of ours!

    Please, please, please bring back the classic architecture, the beautiful harmonies and the sermons that you can either sleep through or remember an hour later.

  2. There is zero chance any of those monuments will be released from custody, JD. The slobs that have taken them down want them destroyed; having them on private property is already keeping them awake at night.

    There are several Confederate monuments in the SE that have been placed on private property to be viewed from freeways and highways. The reprobates have been wild with outrage and frustration because they cannot be removed.
    Here’s a couple of my favorites. Keep your eyes peeled when traveling:

    Southbound I85, about 7 miles South of the SC border into Georgia is a huge Confederate battle flag standing at least 80′ into the air. It’s lighted at night.

    West bound I20 in Alabama, just East of the 431 exit is the absolutely wonderful display advertising the Dixie General Store. There have been several tries to remove it…land owner says not gonna happen.

    In Tennessee, on I65 near mile marker 61 you will see a huge statue celebrating the amazing life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, complete with a ring of Confederate national and battle flags. The reprobates can’t remove it, so they tried to get the highway department to plant trees to hide it…no go.

    There is a monument honoring Confederate dead in front of almost every courthouse in small towns all throughout the SE. Most are humble oblisks, although I’ve seen some pretty spectacular displays. Removing these legally will not be easy, and tearing them down by force will most certainly be met with forceful resistance. There are a couple I know about that are in some danger because leftist slobs have infected the towns (Corneilus, NC comes to mind), but they have not made any moves as of yet.

    If you are ever in Savannah, GA do not fail to visit Bonaventure cemetery. It was started in 1722 and has the most beautiful statuary monuments in the US, including a lot of Confederate soldiers.

  3. Your preoccupation with statues is so dumb that this President thinks it is suitable for manipulation. No offense.

    When I am President I will issue an Executive Order on my first day in office making crime illegal. Kind of obvious really, not sure why someone hasn’t done it already.

    If the order isn’t called Statues of Limitations then why do we even have comments.

  4. Swiftee, there’s a giant cross at Effingham, right next to the freeway. You can see it for miles. Always brought a smile to my face, thinking of all those atheits grinding their teeth as they drove by.
