Plymouth Rock FRC

It's been chipped and cracked, dropped and completely submerged. For America's Plymouth Rock, the journey has been anything but easy. For more than 120 years, it sat anonymously on the Massachusetts waterfront -- just another boulder, until an elderly man asked to be carried to the beach to say goodbye. Plans for a new wharf were underway, set to bury the exact stretch of sand where Thomas Faunce's father and the rest of the pilgrims had landed. That rock, he said, "had received the footsteps of our fathers on their first arrival." It should be, he urged, "perpetuated to posterity." Thanks to him, the son of a Mayflower survivor, it was.

The liberal leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives is in the process of initiating an Islamic terrorist genocidal style attack upon all things Confederate. At this time there has been an Anti-Confederate bill proposed in the U.S. House to prohibit any federal funds from being used for anything related to the Confederacy and requiring the Defense Department to change the name of military bases and ships which honor any Confederate military person, place, or thing. I feel certain that if this measure passes, the next phase is the designation of the SCV as a hate group.
