    Thats some hostility there....Lol.
    The south seceded and when the states explained why, they cited the North's growing and increasingly open hostility to slavery as THE reason. Were they just wrong, it was all a big misunderstanding?

    There is much historical revisionism in this thread. LOL is right!

    And no, Tens of thousands of young men didn't go off to risk their lives because they wanted to keep slavery legal.

    The typical Confederate soldier was a farmer, working class individual that couldn't afford a slave if he wanted to.
    Not really sure why that matters all that much. Does anyone care that the average Nazi soldier probably didn't care at all about Jews or establishing the Third Reich?

    And what is the penalty if she orders it removed?

    How long was Mayor Daley jailed for over Miegs Field?

    Why would there be a penalty. Someone would just tell her she doesn't have the Authority to remove it.

    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~

    Good. The less open celebration of treason in our government, the better.
