    Been told them a dozen times in as many ways. It doesn't matter and they do not care. Pity the common decency to which you speak is absent.

    Mainly Daughters of the Confederacy magazines, which like I said I gave away to a horse trainer friend of mine. Still they use writings and excerpts from journals all throughout the magazines. I highly doubt those soldiers were lying.

    I don't think they are listening. There minds are made up just like conservative minds always are. It is sad that the men that used to flag to represent segregation and racism have ruined the symbolism they appear to revere so much. But I can see how it is truly hurtful for the African Americans that remember those days and it is for that reason that the flag should be removed from all Govt. land and the Miss. State flag needs to be changed too. Those that disagree are blaming the wrong people though.

    You laugh, but my sofa repair guy actually did that. He was under surveillance (don't remember why, don't care) and he named his wifi something like Georgia Bureau of Investigation, just to mess with them.

    Well, granddaddy didn't say it was dumb, so I'm sure it's not true.

    excellent points
    there was a time when that confederate battle flag was actually a symbol of a proud confederate heritage
    but that positive symbol was co-opted by the Jim Crow loyalists who turned it into a symbol of those opposed to racial equality
    which is why it should never now appear on any government/government-issued property
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
