    So in your world a symbol of white supremacy and defense of slavery had no role at all in the motivation of a killer of people trying to start a race war because he believed in racial superiority. Okay.
    It's not my problem if you have no understanding of psychology or depression.

    An insanity defense isn't going to save Dylann Roof.

    He knew what he was doing and he did it because that's what he wanted to do and he's going to pay a heavy price for that.

    Wait and see.

      Rhett Butler: Please don't go on with this, Leave us some dignity to remember out of our marriage. Spare us this last.
      Scarlett: This last? Oh Rhett, do listen to me, I must have loved you for years, only I was such a stupid fool, I didn't know it. Please believe me, you must care! Melly said you did.
      Rhett Butler: I believe you. What about Ashley Wilkes?
      Scarlett: I... I never really loved Ashley.
      Rhett Butler: You certainly gave a good imitation of it, up till this morning. No Scarlett, I tried everything. If you'd only met me half way, even when I came back from London.
      Scarlett: I was so glad to see you. I was, Rhett, but you were so nasty.
      Rhett Butler: And then when you were sick, it was all my fault... I hoped against hope that you'd call for me, but you didn't.
      Scarlett: I wanted you. I wanted you desperately but I didn't think you wanted me.
      Rhett Butler: It seems we've been at cross purposes, doesn't it? But it's no use now. As long as there was Bonnie, there was a chance that we might be happy. I liked to think that Bonnie was you, a little girl again, before the war, and poverty had done things to you. She was so like you, and I could pet her, and spoil her, as I wanted to spoil you. But when she went, she took everything.
      Scarlett: Oh, Rhett, Rhett please don't say that. I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry for everything.
      Rhett Butler: My darling, you're such a child. You think that by saying, "I'm sorry," all the past can be corrected. Here, take my handkerchief. Never, at any crisis of your life, have I known you to have a handkerchief.
      Scarlett: Rhett! Rhett, where are you going?
      Rhett Butler: I'm going back to Charleston, back where I belong.
      Scarlett: Please, please take me with you!
      Rhett Butler: No, I'm through with everything here. I want peace. I want to see if somewhere there isn't something left in life of charm and grace. Do you know what I'm talking about?
      Scarlett: No! I only know that I love you.
      Rhett Butler: That's your misfortune.
      [Rhett turns to walk down the stairs]
      Scarlett: Oh, Rhett!
      [Scarlett watches Rhett walk to the door]
      Scarlett: Rhett!
      [runs down the stairs after Rhett]
      Scarlett: Rhett, Rhett!
      [catches him as he's walking out the front door]
      Scarlett: Rhett... if you go, where shall I go, what shall I do?
      Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
      [Rhett walks off into the fog]
    One of the best scenes in any movie I have ever seen! And "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" is a classic line that has withstood the test of time! Excellent! I may drag that movie out and watch it again this weekend!

    SC law makers overwhelmingly voted to take the flag down not long after she gave her speech, so it obviously it had an effect.

    The flag is representative of a very ugly and failed past. It's racist hatred that clings to that flag, that flys that flag in pride, when in fact it's a matter of shame. Had it merely represented the defense of local autonomy, states rights, there'd be nothing to it. But the fighting was not limited to that but also to the preservation of something very ugly.

    No kidding. An excellent example of highly rehearsed melodrama, just like what went on in SC today. I'd much rather watch the real thing than some amateur playing political games in front of a camera for a predictable response. It was a done deal - this was show-boating.

    The South spit on the US flag and replaced it with their own confederate flag of slavery.

    When I encounter such over the top emotions, I feel I am being manipulated. But then I have seen this whole flag mess as one big manipulation and diversion from the real problem. There are not going to be less shootings mass shootings because the Confederate flag was removed from the SC state house.


    Do you have any objective proof that supports this statement?

    If so, let's see it.
