I guess that those who are offended at the continued presence of memorials to Confederates (who–by waging war against The United States, in violation of their military oath–were traitors) are just thin-skinned people who don’t like the presence of monuments to those who have committed treason against their nation. Why would any reasonable person be offended by memorials and monuments celebrating the lives of traitors?
But, here is a point on which almost everyone can agree, namely that our country desperately needs new infrastructure. Without new and improved roads, our cars will continue to suffer damage to the suspension and tires, and we will continue to waste gas by sitting in traffic jams that would be avoidable if we had improved infrastructure. So, I am sending a letter to The POTUS, urging him to include the following aids to transportation in his upcoming infrastructure legislation:
Benedict Arnold Airport
The Aaron Burr Bridge
The Julius Rosenberg Roundabout
The Jane Fonda Freeway
The Robert Hanssen Highway
Aldrich Ames Airport
We need new investments in roads, bridges, and airports, so this is a perfect way to honor more traitors to our country, while improving transportation for all. And, we need to bring historical monuments up to date, so…Why continue to honor solely the Confederates who committed Treason against The United States, without including more recent traitors? Failing to honor more recent traitors would be–in effect–an attempt at rewriting history.
This would be a win-win for almost everyone by improving infrastructure and honoring more of the treasonous people that a segment of our society seems to worship. And, it would allow The POTUS to be consistent in his admiration for treasonous people.
