I've just always found the idea of expressing oneself through license plates odd; they kind of seem like government subsidized bumper stickers.
    It's not government subidized. The government doesn't pay for it. The car owner pays for it.

    not that i care...i just like the looks of the flag..... and i think this whole bull**** flag narrative is absurd.

    but in any event.. if you want to ban things that offend your delicate sensibilities.. feel free..... it's the modern liberal way , after all.
    So if you liked the looks of the Nazi flag, you should be able to fly it off your front porch without anyone whining about it? So free speech for you and anyone who disagrees with your speech just needs to STFU?

    I'm just trying to get your position straight. We all get that you have the right to fly any damn thing you want, so I'm not sure why you keep using the word "ban." Literally no one is talking about a ban of that flag.

    it's a cool flag.. a cool symbol....
    no need for it to disappear...well, except to calm the hypersensitive PC sissies who can't stop crying about it.
    Very cool, the current symbol of racists everywhere, including racists in the S.C. legislature and Governors office in the 1960s who fought like hell to prevent their black citizens from having the same rights as their white ones. Can't believe the hypersensitive PC sissies can't just ignore the flag's history and appreciate the cool design.....

    If people really think the "confederate flag" is causing people to be racists I feel sorry for them. The black community should worry more about crime in their community, about keeping their kids in school and making good grades so when and if they graduate they are ready for the work force.This is more important than flags.

    actually they make money, you have to pay more for the specialized design, usually a higher fee for the custom plate, with a portion of the fee plus a voluntary donation going to a group or cause affiliated with the plate. like in Washington we have the "lighthouse" custom plate, costs more plus a portion of the fee goes to maintaining historic lighthouses, etc. or ham radio operators pay more to have their FCC station identifier on their license plate...

And it still never was the stars and bars. The closest replica of it was a white flag with the stars and bars small and in the corner like the blue part of the American flag is now. And THAT was rebuked when it was thought it could be perceived as a surrender flag in battle.

    The confederate flag changed all the time and it was never that stars and bars outright. So the "heritage" part of that flag is just utter crap full of lies and as cool as it looks, it was adopted by the real ****nuts of our society which killed what's left of it's relevance. So flying this flag whose only heritage is being adopted by Klan members and such on government property... it's gotta go away from there IMO.
    Then maybe it was never a flag FOR slavery.
