    I'm sorry, but I appear to be lost on what the difference is.

    The flag is coming down because a fair amount of the citizens see it as symbol of hate. Do you care about them?

    Why? Democracy doesn't care about minority opinions.

    Good, there's no point in discussing the matter any further or trying to inject "the people" into the matter when they never mattered before. Don't you think?

    Anyway, back to matters that SC'inians actually care about...

    NOW if they'll just get their asses in gear and do something about the gall-darned ROADS up here in the Upstate.... grrrr. If I bust one more tire in a pothole I'm sending the legislature the bill...
    That's not just a problem in SC, my man. I'm in Quebec right now and have to basically zigzag even in city streets. My suggestion would be buy better tires in the meantime or get all wheel drive.

    The south lost. They were at war with America, they were the enemy, they believed in owning people.

    The south lost, they don't have a country, their flag is a flag of a loser country.

    It shouldn't be flying at any state or federal site, no more than a German, or Japanese or Maltese flag would.

    As of Friday all the crying by the right-wing will have been done in vain; the racist flag will be removed!
