Jefferson Davis HWY: Change the Name or Dig it Up Completely?

Democrat circles are facing difficult decisions in Virginia. Route 1, otherwise called Jefferson Davis Highway, has become a stain on the political landscape in Virginia. Forced to decide whether to revise history or to utterly remove it all together, new problems face VDOT and our Governor.

On one side of the debate, those who think we need to change the name of Jefferson Davis Highway, and on the other, those who feel that removing Route 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) completely is necessary for equality in America.

VDOT has not made any public comments on the question.

In case you haven’t been following the news – towns, cities, states, and NASCAR have been desperately trying to remove all memory of the Confederate Rebellion. A painful memory of the Democrat Party glory days, Democrats are looking to bury their past by, literally burying their past.

If you don’t understand why Jefferson Davis is so offensive, I will borrow from the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress:

DAVIS, Jefferson, (son-in-law of President Zachary Taylor), a Representative and a Senator from Mississippi; born in what is now Fairview, Todd County, Ky., June 3, 1808; moved with his parents to a plantation near Woodville, Wilkinson County, Miss.; attended the country schools, St. Thomas College, Washington County, Ky., Jefferson College, Adams County, Miss., Wilkinson County Academy, and Transylvania University, Lexington, Ky.; graduated from the United States Military Academy, West Point, N.Y., in 1828; served in the Black Hawk War in 1832; promoted to the rank of first lieutenant in the First Dragoons in 1833, and served until 1835, when he resigned; moved to his plantation, ‘Brierfield,’ in Warren County, Miss., and engaged in cotton planting; elected as a Democrat to the Twenty-ninth Congress and served from March 4, 1845, until June 1846, when he resigned to command the First Regiment of Mississippi Riflemen in the war with Mexico; appointed to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Jesse Speight; subsequently elected and served from August 10, 1847, until September 23, 1851, when he resigned; chairman, Committee on Military Affairs (Thirtieth through Thirty-second Congresses); unsuccessful candidate for Governor in 1851; appointed Secretary of War by President Franklin Pierce 1853-1857; again elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate and served from March 4, 1857, until January 21, 1861, when he withdrew; seat declared vacant by Senate resolution on March 4, 1861; chairman, Committee on Military Affairs and the Militia (Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixth Congresses); commissioned major general of the State militia in January 1861; chosen President of the Confederacy by the Provisional Congress and inaugurated in Montgomery, Ala., February 18, 1861; elected President of the Confederacy for a term of six years and inaugurated in Richmond, Va., February 22, 1862; captured by Union troops in Irwinsville, Ga., May 10, 1865; imprisoned in Fortress Monroe, indicted for treason, and was paroled in the custody of the court in 1867; returned to Mississippi and spent the remaining years of his life writing; died in New Orleans, La., on December 6, 1889; lay in state in City Hall of New Orleans, December 8-11, followed by interment in Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans, La.; reinterment on May 31, 1893, in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Va.; the legal disabilities placed upon him were removed, and he was posthumously restored to the full rights of citizenship, effective December 25, 1868, pursuant to a Joint Resolution of Congress (Public Law 95-466), approved October 17, 1978.

As the President of the Slavery-Movement and Democrat Party in The South, Democrats feel an uncontrollable urge to erase his memory from, well, memory, Virginia history, and google maps.

Google has not made any public comments regarding whether or not they will continue to refer to Route 1 as Jefferson Davis HWY. Fears of Google’s secrete allegiance to the Democrat Party, Slavery, Racism, and Segregation are growing world wide, according to someone. This is a very stressful time for them, maybe; maybe not. They are understandably busy.

Some Democrats, it is supposed, believe that Route 1 should be renamed Martin Luther King, JR BLVD. Comedian Chris Rock has warned Democrats against such a change.

Other possible names to replace Jefferson Davis Highway are: BJ Clinton “High”way, Benghazi Y Does It Matter Road, and If You Like Your Plan You Can Keep It BLVD.

Uncertainty regarding the name change may have Democrats leaning toward a more Permanent Solution. In an attempt to get Libertarians on board with a proposal to permanently remove route 1 all together, Democrats have cited the duplicitous inefficiency of having an evil road named after the President of the Confederacy running side by side with Interstate 95. Citing Libertarian arguments against having both Federal and State bureaucracies overseeing essentially the exact same governmental regulations, Virginia Democrats are confident that the Virginia Libertarians will join them in calling for the complete removal of an unnecessary road, which must cost taxpayers over 5 million dollars a year, or some variance either above or below that number.

Either way, people are choosing sides. Contention is high.

Most importantly, we can all agree that something must be done about this road. The indignity of forcing Africa-Americans in Virginia to drive their vehicles down Jefferson Davis HWY is an unconscionable crime.

Is Governor McAuliffe involved in protecting Jefferson Davis HWY? No one knows. No one asked him.

But isn’t that suspicious enough??!?!

We’re moving forward! Permanent Revolution! No racist road shall survive!

    Half the buildings roads, schools, strip clubs and outhouses in West Virginia are named after Robert Byrd, A Democrat US Senator who was finally hauled out of the senate when he reached the age of a sequoia.
    Byrd was an official in the Ku Klux Klan for goodness sake and yet he, like the philandering drunk-driving killer, Teddy Kennedy, has been lionized as a hero of the people.

    And now the GOP presidential candidates are being hounded by the press to make a statement on the Confederate flag issue and Donald Trump’s remarks.
    The US economy is tanking. Our urban streets and the Middle East are violent cesspools. Russia has risen from the soviet grave and China is now the world’s #1 economic power, naval power, and cyber terrorist.
    But the people who are running to become the new leader of the free world feel compelled to respond to media inquiries to comment on the rantings of another candidate and the images that appear on a TV show that left the air 30 years ago.

    The Jefferson Davis Hwy issue and all this other stuff are just shiny objects dangled in front of the glazed eyes of voters to divert them from the issues created by Leftists who want to remain and regain power.
    And we seem willing to let that happen.

    How disgusting it is to reflect on how deeply stained, corroded, corrupted and criminalized the democrud party has been since the days of the KKK all the way up to Chappaquiddick and BillClintoon’s corruption including the Blue dress episode and his recent criminal enterprise with his and Killery’s so-called “FOUNDATION” which reminds me so much of “THE ENRON FIASCO” and the various WALL STREET CORRUPTIONS & SECRET BAILOUTS under shrubbush and continued under the obomination. With the democruds you can ALWAYS look ahead to expect even more frauds, scams and crimes such as the obombacare rollout nightmare and the Clintoon Benghazi state department’s never ending incompetences with endless lies, fraud, crimes and corruption and BarkOBummer’s various criminal enterprises including IRS, TSA, the Benghazi coverup, the wholesale criminal onslaught with infectious diseases flooding our nation across deliberately vulnerable open borders. And we have the never-ending stupid irrational policies and strategies in the middle east leading to his lack of interest to defend helpless Christians and Jews from the vilest form of religious and racial hatred and terror, compounded by the deliberate fostering and incitement of racial, cultural and religious hatred and violence in our own cities. And of course, we now are staring the reality of a Pacific Basin Trade Agenda set up to disadvantage our own working-class citizens with a treaty that gives nearly unbridled authority to a criminal administration unable to deal with a nuclear terrorist fanatic Iran become a reality—and it goes on and on and on! The GOP establishment leadership RINOs are actually working hand-in-glove enabling the democrud monstrosity to succeed by becoming nothing more than a disgusting co-opted band of fools, a wholly own organization of RINO prostitutes exploited by their democrud pimps.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
