    That's it buddy. Just like the several thousand year old good fortune symbol, otherwise known as the swastika was co-opted by Hitler and used to promote his unspeakable terror, it too can never be used again.

    What I meant was if you had any "verifiable" sources. Your granddaddy and UDC magazines are not verifiable sources. Are those your only sources for knowledge about the Civil War?

    Sure they are.

    Perhaps you should join them? Or may you're already a member.

    Main ones. Also UDC magazines are verifiable. Not my fault you have to be a member of the organization to get them. Most organizations are that way.

State flag needs to be changed too. Those that disagree are blaming the wrong people though.
    Good luck getting Mississippi's flag changed. They voted 2 - 1 to keep it as is.

    Who do you have to be? You don't have to be anyone, but you'll find in life that demanding something in conversation usually makes people think you're an a-hole, and won't lead to anything productive in that conversation.

    Actually, I thought I was being nice,...
    Really? See when you challenge someone like this---

    So, it wasn't good enough for you to have a polite conversation, no. You had to not only call into question what vets told her grandfather, but further insult her by demanding that she document, and research for you what was related to her from her grandfather, instead of doing your own research, as though you are someone who is deserving of some deference in matter. IOW, you were rude, and arrogant. If you don't believe her, fine, you don't have to, but you don't have to be rude in expressing that.

    considering she has already admitted that she belongs to UDC that is famous for revising southern history.
    What would a resident of Utah know of "Southern History"? Other than the revision undergone by years of liberal indoctrination that is?

    Since this is a debate forum and the thread is about the CF, I think I am completely within my right as a participating member of DP to ask for proof of her assertions in the course of the debate, however that may offend your sensibilities.
    I know full well what this site is about, and really don't need your snarky little explanation of what you think needs to be adhered to...All you do with your attitude is reinforce what is generally thought of liberal expression.

    If you have a problem with that, then take it up with a moderator.
    I don't go cryin' to 'mommy' and 'daddy' with every jack ass comment others make like libs do....

    The South Carolina House of Representatives approved removing the Confederate battle flag from the Statehouse grounds and placing it in a museum after a contentious debate that stretched into Thursday.

    Next, the bill goes to the desk of Gov. Nikki Haley, who had asked lawmakers to agree to take down the flag in the wake of the June 17 massacre of nine black parishioners at a Charleston church. The banner, whose defenders say it symbolizes their Southern heritage, could come down within days.

    The governor hailed the House's action, saying it heralded "a new day in South Carolina."

    It sure does....It herald's a day where SC politicians give in to mob demands instead of governing.
