    Re: Confederate Flag

    I would like to see the flag mostly relegated to museums etc. I do not support banning its use by individuals and private organizations, that would violate the first amendment. I would like to see people choose not to use it. I do support eliminating its use as a current symbol by state and local governments through democratic processes. (as in SC)

    Go head HorseGirl -- tell us.

    In 1860 there were ______ slaves in the North.

    There were ______slaves in the South.

    can you fill in the blanks?

    I'd be willing to bet a sig line she won't answer this one.
    OMG its like talking to a brick wall with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!! The number does not matter. What matters is that BOTH the north and south DID own slaves. Only about 15% of Southerners owned slaves to begin with! I know you will ignore that FACT because it does not fit your south hating agenda. Slave Census

    Re: Confederate Flag

    A famous man once said:

    "The framers of our Constitution never exhausted so much labor, wisdom, and forbearance in its formation, and surrounded it with so many guards and securities, if it were intended to be broken by every member of the Confederacy at will. It is intended for perpetual union, so expressed in the preamble, and for the establishment of a government (not a compact) which can only be dissolved by revolution, or by the consent of all the people in convention assembled."
