You know what, I don't care what the flag stood for in the past or what other people feel that the flag stands for. All that matters is what I feel the flag stands for. And for me the flag stands for Rebellion against tyrannical authority. Dukes of Hazard style. That's where I first saw it. On the Dukes of Hazard. And what it meant on that show is to rebel against corruption and to help those in need and always do the right thing. THAT is what I feel the flag stands for. If others disagree....I don't care.
