People that do this kind of false, bait & switch posting, need to be taken to the desert, tied to stakes in the sand, and covered with honey so they can be eaten alive by camel spiders.

I've posted just the photographs I took along the entire length of Duke of Gloucester Street and the Palace Green. I think this is the best collection you'll see online of the primary areas of Colonial Williamsburg. Hopefully, if you haven't been there, this will whet your appetite to go. Visit and support Colonial Williamsburg so you can preserve history for future generations.

Somebody edited in some sound effects at 9:56, 33:56, 34:06. Either that or Brian wasn't feeling too good.

Initially hoisted in April, 1961 to celebrate the Civil War's 100th anniversary, 15 years ago the Confederate Flag was removed from the top of South Carolina's capitol to a monument in front of the building. Now, the South Carolina legislature has voted 94-20 to remove it from that monument. On Thursday it was signed by Gov. Nikki Haley, and today it was lowered and removed to be placed in a museum.

Everyone is dumping the Confederate Flag. We need to prevent your kids from having a Confederate Flag because they might grow up to be influenced by it and perpetrate hate crimes by having this illegal contraband in their possession.

So, if we're supposed to go along with this line of thinking, then we need to do something about Gold's Gym. Yeah, that's right. Along with the Confederate Flag, in that picture, Dylann Roof, the shooter, was wearing a "Gold's Gym" t-shirt. They're probably training these bigots and haters to go out and kill Black people. I think we need to rise-up and boycott Gold's Gym for the purpose of putting them out of business becaus they must be helping to influence the bodies and minds of killers.

Yeah, you laugh and you think that's stupid. But what did people do to Chuck-fil-A three years ago when the owner, S. Truett Cathy said he supported the "traditional family." Gays considered the comment "hate speech." No, it wasn't "hate speech," it was "free speech." It seems when somebody in this country is offended by anything, their response is to disregard the rights guaranteed under the Constitution so they don't have to be exposed to it. The government has been setting up "free speech zones" away from primary events where they can isolate those voicing concerns or a different opinions.

Rights? You have no rights anymore. Your rights are being taken away. Why can't you see that? These tragic murders at that South Carolina Church were used to accomplish what they've been trying to do for years for a different reason. 

Wake-up! You're living on a large Indian reservation where your lives are controlled and monitored. You're not free anymore. You've been given the illusion of freedom.

Now Gov. Robert Bentley of Alabama wants the four Confederate Flags removed from a monument on State Capitol grounds. Georgia, Tennessee and Virginia are removing the Flag from the Sons of Confederate Veterans specialty license plates; and even though Mississippi voted in a referendum in 2001 to keep the flag as part of the design of its state flag, the legislature has hinted that they want to remove it. You know, it's funny how fast thay can get stuff like this done, but other, crucial legislation seems to drag on forever.

Let's look at the bigger picture. The election of this President has fostered the environment this nation is in now. Let's see who America elects as President this time. Everyone is talking about Hillary Clinton. Sure, go ahead and elect her. You'll have socialized medicine for sure- just like Canada and England. Where do you think ObamaCare came from. It didn't come from the President. It's 2,500 pages long- do you think they could come up with that in a year. No! It was based on what Hillary tried to get passed during the first administration of Bill Clinton. But she couldn't get it done. Obama was selected...not elected...he was selected to be the salesman to sell this to the American people. He plain out and out lied to the American people when he said you could keep your plan if you liked it. And now that we have it, Hillary is to be elected to bring it on home. Socialized medicine- full government control, that is what WILL happen if she is elected.

In November, the Republicans were handed a majority in Congress for the sole purpose of getting rid of Obamacare. In its present form, it will bankrupt this nation. Our Supreme Court legislated from the Bench by upholding what is clearly not Constitutional.

There are 14 Republicans running for President and a number of them are saying that they will get rid of Obamacare, because they know how crucial this is. But it's not just that, it is immigration and our border, it is taxation, it is the economy, it is our manufacturing base and jobs, it is our military being overseas and the terrorist threat, and it is about the Federal Government taking away the rights of the States.

When I was researching my book, I realized why I was never really taught much about history in school. That's what public education is all about- keeping you in the dark about what really happened in the past, so future generations are raised to think that this is the way it's supposed to be. You want to be a rebel- go back and study history. You'll find out about the Federal Reserve, who controls our money. It's not Federal and there are no Reserves. It's a group of private International Bankers who lend us money and print our money. You'll also find out about how the Federal Income Tax was never fully ratified, yet still became a Constitutional amendment. You'll find out how the Electoral College virtually guarantees the election of the candidate desired by the Establishment. A candidate only has to win the top 11 states to be President, thus disenfranchising three-quarters of the country. We need a radical change in this country before its too late.

Educate yourselves and stop listening to CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, and reading the NY Times and Washington Post. It's all controlled and it's all manipulated. If you don't start thinking for yourself, and do it PDQ...well, let me quote what Ronald Reagan said in 1961:

"...one of these days, you and I are going to spend our sunset years, telling our children and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."

I know I'm behind the times on this, but I found out about "Spotify" in an article in Entertainment Weekly magazine. I was previously a "Pandora" user, but got tired of the repeats. But since I have downloaded "Spotify" my computer has been transformed. It allows you to choose artists and just listen to their music, it allows you to pick particular albums, people's playlists, and even pulls in the music you have on your own computer to play it (in no particular order- I think). This is awesome. I don't know everything about it yet, but so far I've been very impressed. If you listen to a lot of music on your computer- this is the music service you want. They also have a Premium Service without the ads. "Spotify" is absolutely awesome!

Almost 3 hours and they talked very little about Operation Highjump. I'm a little disappointed. Should have titled this video something else. It was a good show...just mislabeled.

Check out my newest, most ambitious video project. A record of my recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg. If you've never been here, or can never get here, this gives you a taste of what it's like to step back into time and witness the past.

A statue of Thomas Jefferson working on the Declaration of Independence at Williamsburg, VA. I was there on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. I'm hoping to finish the research on my expose' of the Bruton Vault and I was able to meet with somebody at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. I also was able to take a lot of pictures. This is the biggest outdoor museum in the world and I believe it is the most prolific demonstration of historic restoration that you'll see in the country today. It is an unforgettable experience. You need a couple days to see it all, and another day to see Jamestown and Yorktown too. It is something that needs to be supported because it is one of the last bastions of liberty. After being in Williamsburg, Philadelphia pales in comparison. It is very disappointing that they didn't preserve more of their colonial history. That is why Williamsburg is such a treat.

I use my FP more at home, but I've been using them more at work. When I sign cards with one at work, people think its cool. I wish I would have known about FPs 35 years ago- I probably would have gotten more dates.

I actually like this theme. Not as good as Lalo's "Mission:Impossible," or "Enter the Dragon," but still good. I have it on my computer, but the quality isn't that good. Both vids on YT also have poor audio quality. It would be nice if a "Best Of" compilation would have this on.

The Flag of the Confederate States of America...you've probably been hearing about it. It's been dominating the news.

On June 17th,  a white shooter went into the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina and killed 9 people. The website of the racist killer Dylann Roof had photographs in which the Confederate flag was an element. That immediately started a backlash.

Warner Bros. announced they would no longer sanction the production of "Dukes of Hazzard" merchandise that featured the flag which was painted on the roof of the orange Dodge Charger driven by the Duke brothers- referred to as the General Lee. The cable network TV Land followed with their announcement that they have removed the show from their schedule and will no longer air episodes of the popular show. Retailers like Walmart and Sears, as well as internet sites like Amazon, eBay and Etsy have said they will ban sales of Confederate Flag merchandise.

NASCAR requested that all tracks which  host its national series events "refrain from displaying the Confederate Flag" at their events. South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has called for the removal of the flag from the state's capitol grounds. The presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton,  said the flag "shouldn't fly."

The massacre at the church was abhorrent and the murderer needs to be tried, convicted and put to death.

However, this campaign to get rid of the Confederate Flag is seemingly being done to apply guilt to a symbol to somehow garner some comfort in the wake of tragic event. It's almost like they feel that having the flag made him do it. No, what made him do it was the environment he grew up in. He is a hater and he is a bigot.

Because they're not going to get enough satisfaction out of the killer's adjudication, instead they are attacking a symbol. But really, they are just using this event to continue an ongoing battle against the Confederate Flag. Since the Civil War it has been considered a symbol of slavery, oppression and racism; and in the past few years, specifically during the administration of President Obama, there had been a renewed effort to get rid of the flag.

Winston Churchill said "History will be kind to me because I intend to write it." This reflects the mindset that "history is written by the victors." (Which may or may not have also been said by him.) But now history is being rewritten by a minority group of people just because they are yelling the loudest.

The Confederate Flag is history. Thomas Jefferson owned slaves, are you going to write him out of the history books because of that?

Erasing history doesn't change it. Liberals seem to think you can. For example, on the PBS show "Finding Your Roots," when guest actor/director/and new Batman Ben Affleck found out one of his ancestors had owned slaves, he asked for that reference to be omitted from a 2014 episode. 

A new CNN poll shows that 57% of Americans see the flag more as a symbol of Southern pride than as a symbol of racism, which is about the same as in 2000 when it was 59%. However, opinions are sharply divided by race, and among whites, views are split by education and political ideology.

Right off the bat, the right to display the Confederate Flag is a Constitutional right guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. That little piece of information seems to have slipped by some people.

There was a Civil War that tore this country apart, that is an undeniable fact. However, why it happened seems to be a little cloudy because public education in this country is specifically engineered to dumb-down Americans and keep them in the dark as to why things are the way they are today.

When this country was established, it took money to send ships here with what was needed to do that. That money came from British bankers. Not everyone who came to this country were against the Crown. When America declared her independence, it was problematic, because the British bankers realized they were not going to get a return on their investment, even though they had a legitimate claim of debt. In addition, when we asked the French to help us, we also incurred a debt with them. When we decided to breakaway from England, we had no money.

When a country lent money to another country, it was a 70-year Note, and it became due about the time that Lincoln had become President. He didn't want to give away any land as part of the foreclosure, so he tried to renegotiate with them. The bankers were willing to do that, but as part of the deal, the bankers wanted to hold the public lands of all 34 republics as collateral for the debt. When the Southern States found out about those terms, making them responsible for the debt of a war they never fought in, they didn't agree with it and decided to secede instead. The repercussions on many levels of this move by the South is what precipitated the military action of the North. They were sovereign individual nation States and had the right to do that; just as Texas does today because that was their status before they became a State.

And yes, Slavery was another issue; but the thing is, Slavery wasn't just confined to the South. I live near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania which is the location of Fort Hunter, a complex of post-Colonial era buildings where a supply fort and garrison had been built. There you'll the Archibald McAllister House. Obviously this historic area has changed over time, and now across the highway behind it, you can see the walled-in private cemetery for the McAllister family. But, behind that, hidden somewhere in a wooded area is an area known by Dauphin County as the "Slave Graves." They lead a tour there once a year in November when the area is more navigable. For the most part however, this fact is not one that is publicized. I'm sure there are many areas in the North where this has happened. Slavery wasn't just carried out in the South.

Another area of contention was States' Rights. The argument has been made that Slavery would have become obsolete because of the Industrial Revolution. But that Revolution came with a price and would not have readily migrated southward. The South was competing economically with the North and there was competition to move westward and expand. The secession brought with it the commitment to preserve their way of life at a time when the Federal Government was encroaching upon them on many different levels.

Slavery was a reprehensible and a shameful chapter in American history, just as the treatment of the Indians which continues today. Despite Civil Rights legislation, and the election of Obama, Blacks in America still experience prejudice. There is a subconscious resentment within them towards injustice, which is understandable. But, is attacking a symbol of history really necessary?

What is known today as the Confederate Flag had actually been rejected as the national flag of the Confederate States of America (CSA) in 1861, and was adopted as the battle flag of Northern Virginia under Gen. Robert E. Lee- so it never actually represented the rogue Southern government. It has become widely known as a symbol of the South. Not because it was identified with the condoning of the institution of Slavery, but because it was  and is, a way to uphold Southern pride and the lives that were lost adhering to the right of a State to be free from the overreach of the Federal Government.

I am getting sick and tired of large corporations giving in to the constant whining of a minority of Liberals who care nothing of freedom and the rights guaranteed to us under the Constitution. My point is, before you get offended by something, make sure you know your history before you blame something.

Regardless of what you think, the Confederate Flag is not a symbol of Slavery and oppression- today, it is a symbol of Freedom. When I see a Confederate Flag, I think, there is someone who is making the statement that the Federal Government is no longer a "government of the people, by the people, for the people."

+Ruby Rose As a Southern Gal I am in complete agreement with you. But, to pull TV shows and such over a flag is retarded. The confederate flag never made retailers that much money anyhow so that's not a huge deal pulling it from stores. It rightfully should be removed from a state Capitol building where it doesn't belong. I don't think it should be prominently displayed anywhere tbh. As my crush's dad so put it "That's like saying a German can go fly a Swatztica flag over Berlin and say it's his history. Or a Japanese man in America flying a flag commemorating their attacks on Pearl Harbor because he's Japanese and it's part of his history" If you wanna have one on your wall in your house GO FOR IT it's IN your house. Nobody has to see it but you do not fly it in your front yard
