Another Confederate General is Erased

J.E.B. Stuart elementary school in Richmond, Virginia will be re-named Barack Obama elementary school. Stuart was a West Point graduate and rising star as a U.S. Army officer. When his Virginia seceded from the Union he chose to go with them. He ended-up being a brilliant cavalry/recon general officer. Obama's military 'non' accomplishments consisted of "killing Osama Bin Laden with his bare hands" LOL. A local High School was forced to change their sports team name from 'Rebels' to something else as it was Confederate and could be offensive to someone… This was in the Mid Willamette Valley of Oregon which was a total non participant in the Civil War! Our Founding Fathers were of course "Rebels"!

    Let's not be too hasty here - we're switching the name of a school from J.E.B. Stuart to Barack Obama, right.

    Maybe the Confederate association is not the offensive thing here.  Perhaps a man demonstrating that he has BALLS is.

    You may definitely have something there,

    There have been many military war heroes with "Balls". You made me think of my favorite four Presidents who served in my lifetime with "Balls". Two of them were of course already war heroes. Truman: He did not play the political games and took "crap" off no one. His difficult decision to authorize use of the atomic bomb ended WW2 and saved countless lives. U.S. and Japanese. Eisenhower: (war hero). He had the "Balls" to use federal troops to enforce racial integration of public schools. JFK: (war hero). He had the "Balls" to back down the Soviets at the brink of nuclear war. Reagan: He beat the Soviets and ended the "Cold War".
