Personally I don't really care as long as they're healthy (like how I'm healthy even though I'm underweight IRL). Though, being able to take bullets and blades without damage or use them as a bed sounds like you've gone way too far in my ears.

I treat fatfurs as fantasy characters rather than realistic representations of what it's like to be fat. The only thing realistic about my fatfurs is their short lifespan.

The problem with the confederat/civil war statues is
they were put up as a protest to the US Governments
desicians against the rights of southern states that were
in the confederacy during the civil war. Mainly at the end of
reconstruction around 1900 to the 1920's The battle flag
was part of an political statement in the late 1940's.

Instead of being for history they are still  a protest
by those who lost the uncivil war. They should be
relagated to museums and cemetarys dedicated
to confederat soldiers. If an individual wishes to
have one on his/her property, so be it as a right of
free speech. But not in public or government places.
After all the confederacy lost the war.

Well, if that's the case I can see why people reacted so agressively. I have to admit I don't know much besides that the war was fought against slavery, nor do I know who actually put the statues up for what reason. It seems that even the inhabitants of the US are divided regarding why the statues were put up, so I'll leave it to them as long as they contact the local authorities first (like what I meant to say with it being official in my first post).

The local authorities had 150 years to apologize and do take down those statues. What makes you think it was going to change? It was well past "contact the local authorities". If you think people haven't been trying to get these monuments removed for years and years, you're only kidding yourself.

The people did this because it needed to be done and the government wouldn't.

The revolution will not be authorized.

News story:
http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/14/us/confederate-statue-pulled-down-north-carolina-trnd/index.html
http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/15/politics/donald-trump-robert-e-lee/index.html

Read the news stories, then ask yourselves and decide if Confederate memorials should be taken down? IMO, I feel it's wrong to remove them. In short, it's "revisionist history".  >:(  As Trump said, How far will it go? Will memorials to Washington or Jefferson be next? Should we demolish the Great Pyramid in Egypt because it was built by slaves? Granted, a lot of bad things happened throughout history. But they are still history nonetheless and should never be forgotten.

Do the ancient Egyptians which still totally exist think that Jews should be serving them and their Pharaoh, which again they totally have in 2017? Are you serious ARE YOU SERIOUS KOBUK

Not my thing. Nothing against them, but not interested.

Don't really know that much about them. Don't really care. That doesn't necessarily mean I don't like them. It just means I don't know much about them to give an informed opinion.

I think it should stay. Let it be a reminder of what happened, so that the same mistake will not be made twice. Let it be a place to think of the battle people fought for, for freedom in any way. And let it be a way to celebrate the freedom you have now.

However, taking down those statues is solving voilence with violence. Though that has helped in the past, in this case all the necessary violence has already happened long ago. Now you're just pouring fire over an issue that has cooled down for decades, and that could well lead to other problems nobody needs nor wants. If you really want to have those statues removed regardless, start a petition or something like that. At least then it's official and far less likely to escalate.

Because your racist congressmen in your racist town in your racist state is going to take down statues of their childhood heroes who almost didn't fail at keeping slavery legal.

THAT'LL LEARN 'EM. THAT SOUNDS LIKELY.

Maybe try petitioning the Nazis to not try to kill all the Jews?
