    That's the goal of Obama as well. It's all a play to the insurance companies. Obama's HC plan will make things worse and will only play towards the insurance company. No one can support the claim that Wilson's outburst was motivated by racism. Which is the topic here.

    Educated, intelligent people know what that flag represents.

    For you to sit here and try to deny it was the flag of a culture that had slavery as an institution is quite laughable.

    You know the confederate constitution forbade the importation of slaves right?
    Thank you

    BWHAHAHAHAHA

    Now he's citing Confederate constitutional law.

    I guess the blacks at the time should have been happy, huh?

    You don't get to go free, but we're forbidding the importation of slaves.

    We're only allowed to breed you.

    Thats real "progress."

    Thats "change" every southerner can believe in!

    And what "state right" did that flag initally symbolize...oh yea, the right to deny freedom to blacks.

    Yea, thats "States Rights" for you.
    It symbolized all state's rights, including the right to own slaves which was legal at the time and also recognized as a legitimate practice in our Constitution when it accepted slavery through the 3/5 Compromise.

    Looking back, was it deplorable that people had the right to own other people? Yes. But it was legal and remained legal until the Constitution was ammended. Just because state's rights once included the right to legalize and enforce slavery, doesn't make state's rights a bad thing.

    I could go on, but why am I even bothering? You're not interested in debate, you're only interested in acting like a retarded monkey and slinging crap at anyone who comes near you.

    I did no such thing. I never defended anyone's right to own slaves despite your deranged and desperate attempts to paint it so. I thought you were warned about this by a mod already...

    You & I agree on some things but I do believe that the conclusive evidence that you demand could never be exhibited to such an extent that most Wilson defenders would accept it.
    Maybe I'm wrong as far as you are concerned. I think maybe you'd accept reasonable proof but....who knows for sure.

    You know, Chuck, this is an excellent point. I am often one of the first to come down on right wing rhetoric that may incite hatred and/or violence. Carter's words, inaccurate and unsubstantiated do the same thing. Just like uninformed extreme right wingers, there will be uninformed extreme left wingers who will hear this and say, "hey, if Carter said it, it must be true. Right wingers who disagree with Obama are racists!" A ridiculous assertion to say the least, but unfortunately one that some hack on the left will listen to.
