    Still no real argument?

    What you saw is fallacy that had nothing to do with my post.

    They actually did. Several times. And this has been mentioned in the thread over and over and over again. In fact, most of the people who have argued that it is treason have accepted the reality of SC cases and have said that they just disagree with them. You have the cases, you've clearly not read them, you've clearly not been paying attention.

    Regarding what it represents... you are arguing the subjective nature again. The SC is not the ultimate authority on what people think or have opinions on. I understand your point, but they have no say on who thinks what... only whom can do what.
    You're right, it's not and people are free to think that the SC was wrong in their judgment. Just like people are free to think that abortion is illegal or that racial discrimination in the workplace is legal, people are free to think that the Confederacy did not commit treason, but all of those people would be freely thinking something false. Consequently, someone who looks at the Confederate flag and argues it isn't treason because they didn't really commit treason would be making a factually incorrect judgment just like some racist who fires an Asian guy because of his race is factually incorrect when he says it isn't really breaking the law.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Is the Confederate flag a symbol of treason?Closing the thread. Between the countless attacks and the fact that we are nearing 2,000 posts, it's time to put this one to bed.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
