  1. How the heck did we get to this? I almost feel like I’m in the twilight zone. I can’t imagine how these people have decided that because they could, it would be OK to wipe out our history, and say all Southerners, and for that matter all true Americans, no longer matter.

  2. My vote would be to eliminate all names and just use numbers. Navy ships and planes have numbers so just use numbers. Buildings have street addresses so just use the street address and eliminate all building names. States like Texas name the majority of their streets using FM and then a number. FM is for Farm to Market. Someone has a goal to remove all history of the War between the States from history, and some day, some one will begin to declare that there never was any slavery in America.

  3. Renaming the military bases and navy ships is just idiotic. Surely there are more important issues that need to be addressed. Our heritage is important. Name NEW roads, buildings and other things; but, leave existing names as they are. Stop wasting time and money.
