    I know what the Stars and Bars is. It's the original confederate flag. Doesn't always generate the same reaction as the Battle Flag, but IMO its meaning is the same.

    I guess you aren't understanding, the north was tresspassing on southern land and refused an order to remove their presence. That is an act of war, but go ahead and use Wiki all you like.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Is it ok to call racist blacks, "nigger"? By your logic, it is.

    It's been well explained how the north started the war, and it's been thouroughly explained why the south seceeded and where the right was found. And the answer never changed from the people looking at things objectively. The "north only" side has been constantly changing the message. So, maybe ask them these things huh?

    I guess you don't respect property rights, which was one of the issues that started the Civil War, right?

    Ft. Sumter was Federal property. Unilateral declarations of independence doesn't change that fact.

    The South attacked Federal property, unprovoked. They started the hostilities of the American Civil War....a war fought to preserve the right to own other human beings.

    do you call black racists, "niggers"???

    that's pretty horrible, if you ask me. I would never call a black person that word, no matter how evil they were.

    hmm... I wonder what Santa is...

    he give away free stuff like no tomorrow... which makes him a Yankee .
    but the stuff he gives away is built by his own personal slave army... which makes him a confederate.

    i'll have to do more research on this rascal Santa guy.

    You called the Battle Flag the, "Stars and Bars". So, obviously, you didn't know the difference until you decided to do a little research.
