    Mornin OS. Looks like the left was able to make an issue out of it. As now Mississippi is going to do something about their Confederate Flag too.



    Mississippi legislator advocates removing Confederate design from state flag.....

    Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn has pushed to have the confederate flag removed from the state's official flag. CBSN's Kristine Johnson has his statement.....snip~

    They could probably leave it up, but whether or not they want to, at a certain point they look like they are standing in solidarity with the shooter by keeping it flying. It is poor taste, but it is their state, and so if that is how they want to portray themselves to the world that is their right. History and tradition are great but I do not see people walking around with a Swastika just because it meant "good fortune" before it was taken up by another group.

    Looks like you were the one who don't get it.....which is why you were asking, Why don't the governor just order it to be taken down.

    Don't worry.....they haven't passed the law yet that no other flags can be flown on government ground. When they do.....I will make sure you get the message.

    You clearly don't get it. I am not surprised.

    You think the Swastika and the Confederate battle flag are comparable ?

    Not here, but in south Asia the swastika is a normal sighting.

    I don't really see the point in this hubbub. A mental case kills 9 people and thousands go nuts on a waving piece of cotton. Next they will tell you wearing said cotton apparel will result in jail time.

    Look up the history of the Swastika prior to the Nazis. If anything, I think it is a better symbol than the confederate flag.
