    How could it happen that a flag which has always been a symbol of love for the South now represents racism and hatred? I feel sorry for those people who have been sticking confederate flags on their license plates since forever. Now they are all considered bigots and nazis. Maybe it's time to chill up a bit and just forget about one mentally disabled racist who used it as a symbol of his racial hatred? Because it will only distance the southerners from the rest of the country.
    Is she up for re-election?

    I don't know about anyone else, but I am so sick to ****ing death of hearing about everyone's outrage over the flag.

    I'm fine. I respect their feelings over it.

    Not to veer off topic but there's certainly no consensus on that and we've beat that horse to death here many times. But to the point. If you are to justify atrocities and the targeting of civilians, then just remember that you must accept others doing so as well. As far as fast forwarding back to today and the governors bravado about taking down the flag that she's not seemed too concerned about prior, total political expediency, and she gets absolutely no credit from me.

    Sounds like a personal problem to me....

    Yeah, she should have just told outraged people that they had "space to destroy"

    You think that she was being politically expedient? I actually agree with you on that part...However, her counterpart in Balto certainly went down the wrong path no? Anytime politicians react to mob demand it can NOT end well, whether they are demo's or repubs.

    It is too often the case that some here in the South have constructed their own version of what happened during the Civil War. They cannot face the fact that the Confederacy was both wrong and lost the war.
