    You already tried this line. It didn't work. Needs red pepper and jalapenos.

    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.


    Mornin Samhain. Hillary said.....its just guns.

    But BO made sure it would cover the entire week and then run into this coming weekend. As he scheduled himself to run down and pay a visit to Charleston this coming Friday.(got his round of golf in out in Los Angeles after the fundraisers he was partying at when he felt a brief moment of outrage and then said something about the Confederate flag.)

    Plans to read the Eulogy for his friend the Pastor who was also a Demo Politician.

    You have to actually say something before you say, "Just sayin...".

    Even if your claim is accurate, and you have not yet supported it with actual historical evidence, can't you understand that you are feeding the flames of racism by judging a symbol by its least common denominator? Let's just say you're correct and that some powerful white leaders were making a statement. If so - they are still among the few who feel/felt that way.

    Right now, you are playing into the hands of racists everywhere. And, in doing so, you're creating a false story. You're not acknowledging anything I've told you about what that flag means to descendants of the soldiers in the Civil War, white or black. You're not acknowledging how the flag has come to represent survival and the rebuilding of the South.

    Think of this - consider the swastika, since we've been talking about it. What if, instead of shunning it - the Native Americans took back their ancient symbol of well being and friendship and printed it on everything they could. Eventually, the sight of the symbol would come to mean just that - and Hitler's bastardization of the it would fade. But, that didn't happen. Instead, out of a misdirected desire to put Hitler in his place, we've elevated the symbol to one of only hate and in doing so - every neo-nazi and antisemitic group has adopted it.

    As I said - you're going to win this one.

    But, once again, we will have lost much.

    Why does everyone have to be so thick?

    Hitler ruined the Charlie Chaplin mustache. You sound like to want to "take it back".
