    Wrong again.

    People are crazy. Besides putting us all on mind-slaving drugs at birth...... there is absolutely nothing we can do to prevent this sort of thing from happen from a mental health standpoint.

    I am so sick of people blaming some obscure facet of society like, "The mental health care system" with zero knowledge on whether or not any form of assistance was requested.

    Or are you to tell me that mental health care folks should burst into everyone's home and forcibly conduct some kind of special brain examination???????

    The confederacy is just another word for traitor.

    Companies can behave however they want. I think it's silly not to sell the Confederate Flag or products that utilize it but it isn't my business. My only concern is keeping that flag off of public property.

    So, even if that public property is a civil war memorial or burial site?

    This is a disingenuous comment.

    Without the societal acceptance of racism and the atmosphere of privilege and entitlement which the flag embodies, the terrorist Roof would have just shot himself for being a loser. The flag gave him a symbol to rally around.
