Default Cost of Removing Confederate Statues

Whatever side your on, one question I always wondered about.

If people insist on confederate statues being removed for whatever reason,
who is paying for the machinery and man power to remove them??

Can you say "the tax payers".

If these groups insist on removeable, let them collect the funds to pay the removal.

Many different statues and memorials on public property are offensive to me. How do we get them removed? Hopefully without violent riots!!

And someday the Schwartz Statue will be removed from Spanish Springs.

Reality at least my reality. There is almost no one that cannot think of something that they think is offensive. Around here, the color of the car you neighbor owns, the type of car he/she owns, the color their home is painted, golf cart etc etc etc etc History etc etc etc Books?

When will we reach a line. For me, we crossed that line a long time ago.

Where we are today. National debt is now 30 Trillion dollars. I seem to be one of the only who realize I do not comprehend one trillion let alone 30 of them. We chat about billions. Hey a million here a million there get 100 million together before another 100 million and oops we have one trillion. No need to ask if an expense is worth while we are not even actually printing it. Most of the debt is just computer notes. No one is even asking you owe us half a trillion we owe you a trillion so REALITY we owe you not a trillion but half a trillion.

Never mind the cost of moving the statues, consider the pooping places the poor pigeons will loose!

I never understood why we put up statues to honor traitors. Maybe next we'll erect one for the crazy QAnon nut job with the horns

When did the entrance fee go up for a "peaceful" visit to the Nation's Capital.
Note: Using CNN meaning of: "peaceful".

Confederate generals and Confederate politicians were all traitors to the United States.

But they were pardoned, just like FALN and SDS terrorists.
President Andrew Johnson took no chances. On Christmas Day 1868, he pardoned former Confederates from the crime of treason, thwarting vengeful Northerners, Lost Cause Southerners and headline writers all over the country.
