    I feel the same about the Confederate flag. But if they want to look like a state of traitors then it is their choice.
    As always, it depends on whether the person complaining and the person flying the flag is left-wing or right-wing. Even in Texas.

    For example, a school principal in Texas was ordered to take down a Mexican flag he flew at school...and leftists pitched a fit because of that.

    And that was wrong. He flew it on the flag pole of a public school. And I can say that because I try to be consistent in my stances. I wonder how many who are in favor of the Confederate flag took issue with the Mexican flag being flown.

    Yessireebob, symbols don't actually mean anything and have absolutely no influence on anything at all which is why stomping on an American flag has absolutely no meaning.

    PS....I never said the flag in and of itself was the "problem", but then some folks are enamored with straw.
    if the flag is not a problem.. why are people whining about it as if it is?

    the "real" problem is multifaceted... but i do know it has nothign to do with a flag.

    Speaking of which, I was told by a forum member recently that burning the American Flag only makes it more meaningful. I'm pretty sure that member has left-wing leanings.

    the flag of Hawaii has the union jack in it... is that OK to fly?.. or is that somehow different?

    re: Gov. Haley to call for removal of Confederate flag from Capitol grounds [W:154]

    It should be removed. The Confederate flag should have been taken down the day after the war ended. It represents and enemy nation and enemy of the United States of America, of which South Carolina is a state in. The flag represents an enemy combatant of the Union and it's disgraceful to have something like that on any state capitol honoring such a past or on any state grounds. You can have your heritage and history and be proud of that, but it has no business being on state grounds or flying above a state capitol.
