    Why throw the baby out with the bath water. Rather than cover up or ignore his participation in the wretched institution of human trafficking and slavery, we can acknowledge it, criticize it as well as acknowledge and applaud his positive contributions to the creation of the Union.

    See how it usually starts, with a mere mention...a pondering of the concept. They float the idea out there probably hoping it'll pick up steam. No doubt they're probably already fantasizing about bulldozers coming in. I wonder when they'll want to posthumously impeach every slave-owning President and remove them from the history books. Probably only a matter time before more crazy ideas like this get floated. Should we include every President that said the word "nigger"? How far should we go in deleting those things that offend? How about the latinos?
    Should we disassemble the United States and give them back the land we allegedly took? Right now this is all far fetched, but I don't trust this to end with just a Confederate flag.


    Jefferson and founding fathers that owned slaves, huh? Then removing Confederate Flags from cemeteries and removing monuments. Why no mention of removing the Democrat Party?????

    This is nothing but another attempt to confuse the issue. The removal of the battle flag has nothing to do with slavery or dead people that owned slaves. It is about it's use in the 20th century as the banner of segregation and racial hatred. It's about living black people that remember that use and rightly find it offensive for it to be displayed on State property. I'm frankly getting tired of the right wing using nothing but far fetched slippery slope arguments to defend the undefendable. It is pitiful and lame.

    Sure it does.....just like everything else, it has its History. Its reality. Just because they evolved like a virus. Doesn't mean they should be forgotten.

    But then you can see where all the touchy feely and emotional crowd of the left will.....want the offending n~stuff to come to an end.

    Okay, I was going with what I had mentioned. The Democrats, which we know they still exist. For some odd reason.

    It is the Democratic Party. There's no such thing as a democrat party.
