    Well, heck, I'm not even from the South, born and raised Canadian, and live in Western NY, and I called Amazon yesterday and cancelled my Amazon-Prime membership and told them that if they wanted, like many other business, to base their business model on politics, that I would do the same. Small thing I know, but the lady I spoke with said they've been getting calls all day on that..

    Seems I'm not the only one.

    Sadly this should have happened a few generation before your granddaddy ever uttered his prediction.

    Better late than never I suppose.

    Sad thing is we are not blaming our horribly pathetic mental health system for these mass shootings, but a flag. That is very sad.

    There is no easy fix, nor easy "kick the can" method to address the mental health issue in the US. Therefore it is ignored, even though everyone knows its the 800lb. gorilla in the room.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It was legal for at least 87 years in the USA. Still selective in your outrage I see.

    How about these racist slave owners? Should their likenesses be taken down from government buildings or on forms of government currency? Why not just take down the Declaration of Independence as well?

    Exactly. Horrible mental healthcare not to mention stigmatizing the mentally ill is what has gotten us to this point. The flag, US, Confederate, Rainbow, or whatever has not caused all this

    they have every right and a new USAToday poll has the nation split down the middle on the issue. So it's not as cut and dry as you think

    We'll see about that.

    So tell me, if slavery was such a part of the founding principles, then why isn't the word slavery plastered all over the Constitution, BoR or DoI? In fact, it's not mentioned at all. How come?

    It was legal for at least 87 years in the USA. Still selective in your outrage I see.
    People were outraged. Does Harpers Ferry ring a bell? It was called the abolitionist movement....I'm not surprised you've never heard of it.

    How about these racist slave owners? Should their likenesses be taken down from government buildings or on forms of government currency? Why not just take down the Declaration of Independence as well?

    Not much we can do about the racist slave owners before the war. But there is no excuse for honoring those that caused the war or kept the southern cause alive.

    Or... just blame idiots.


    Why is some part of society to blame for an individual's actions?

    Our Mental health system helps those that it can....but if one doesn't go to seek help..... how can the "mental health system" do anything about it?

    So.... then you have documentation proving that he was turned down for requested mental health assistance at some relevant point before the shooting????
