    Dude, it's your point. You are claiming people say flags cause violence, or whatever. You made a specific claim about what Obama said. I can't prove a negative. I can't prove nobody said what you claim, short of pasting every single message board post and speech from every politician on the subject. All you need to do is show me ONE SINGLE PERSON who has actually said "flags make people commit murder," or whatever claim you're making. Just one. And you can't do that. Because you know I'm right. You know what's actually been said is that the symbolic nature of the flag contributes to an atmosphere of racial tension. Not "flags cause murder."

    Buh bye yourself. You run away when asked to prove your own point. So transparent, so predictable.

    If it's within the power of the executive, and the people elected him into the executive, then for the time being it is what the "people" want...or more accurately, what the person they entrusted with power wants and is being executed in that vein. If the people have an issue with it then they can take it into account the next time they vote for an executive. I don't think our law makers need to hold some kind of state wide vote whenever they seek to do something, even something controversial. We are a representative republic not a direct democracy.

    That's fair too. The move, in my view, implies guilt by association and implies the flag is a cause of or at least a contributor to murderous violence. If that's how the majority of people feel, more power to them. I can see it becoming a much more controversial move once the heat of this tragedy dies down.

    Since the Stars and Stripes flew over the slaves well before their was a Confederacy we should probably remove that one too, eh?

    I pointed you in the direction. If you're too lazy to check it out yourself, that's not my problem. I have no interest in feeding you every piece of information you deem necessary to make a post valid in your mind.

    Was the US founded specifically in response to an attempt by Britain to abolish slavery?

    You mentioned a speech by the president. He does that a lot. Provide evidence. Source the specific quote. Or just leave like you said you were going to, since you have nothing left to add.
