So we have a National Park Service, which along with the District of Columbia is supposed to be overseen by Congress, all of which have been generously funded by US taxpayer dollars since the founding of this country. And we have a memorial to one of the founders of this country which is about to be altered according to the whims of an NGO, a private NGO which donates money to the Park Service. I do not know if they are going to erect a statue of Jefferson with a whip in his hand or what. But what I’m pretty sure that I am not alone in my shock and revulsion that a private organization can go into the nation’s capital and do this on it’s own volition.
We have a dictatorship in this country. The recent revelations about Facebook, Twitter and Google dictating the terms of public discourse, which the US Postal Service was never able to do, only reinforce that. But this overt “WE are going to the Jefferson Memorial and we are going to change it”, and the Park Service and Congress are going to sit back and say “As you wish.”????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
