    As someone actually living and paying taxes in said state, I have absolutely no issue with the governor's actions here.

    This thread has nothing to do with asset forfeiture.

    Just not inanimate objects - they're always guilty to political correctness.

    Really? How did you manage to decide this was the argument? Please explain, I'm really interested in hearing how so many of you concluded this.
    First some bright liberal said it was access to guns, then some bright liberal said the racist became racist because the Confederate Flag is a symbol of racism. We can only assume that if guns were more strictly controlled and flags were banned, the world would be lollypops and sugar candy and everyone would be dancing in the streets of Euphoriaville, USA. Liberals are as transparent as they are idiotic.

    That's fair - however, the flag should be removed or retired if that's what the people of the State actually want and not because of some kneejerk reaction by one person in the Governor's office.

    Link the posts in question. I'd like to see whether this was actually said or whether or not you just interpreted it that way.

    I guess you don't listen to your President when he speaks. Don't you have a TV? The President clearly blamed the gun and called for another look at gun control - bodies were barely cold when he started. Not long after, the target became the flag with any number of politicians and talking heads calling for it to be removed. If you want something closer to home, just review the threads here on the tragedy and on the flag.

    I haven't heard much talk about the likely reason for the rampage. Roof's cousin has reportedly indicated that about a year ago he had a crush on a girl and she didn't return his affection and started dating a black boy. At that time, Roof changed and started getting into the white supremacist movement. There's your likely motive - not a flag. Symbols don't kill people - people kill people.

    Give me the quote. Source something. You clearly have jumped to a conclusion that wasn't actually stated. Your unwillingness to show a source proves this. No, I don't watch the president on TV. Long-winded speeches from politicians are boring. Give me a transcript later.

    Customized license plates of any kind seem like a huge waste of money for the government to be spending time on.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
