    Not really... perhaps creating a thread about it would clear it up.

This flag has no business flying from any public building or on any public property at any level of government in this country and I guarantee it will stop being so flown. Maybe not this year everywhere but as soon as those states and localities who are flying it start paying a political and economic price for doing so it will stop.
    I don't, as many Americans don't, have a problem with the Confederate flag displayed at Confederate memorials to fallen soldiers and gravesites.

    That is where I draw the line.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    im not even going to talk about blacks being slaves in the south..the thing is the south wanted to break off from the rest of the country.. now either we are a country together or a bunch of little separate countries. don't say I love the united states in one sentence and say I feel each state can do what it wants in another or break away when it wants to.. you cant have both.. the confederate flag stands for breaking away from the united states...period !!!! there is a saying in America (love it or leave it!!! but you cannot take the real estate!!! by the way if texas was to break away from the united states do you think we would let you keep the nukes???
    I find the lack of logic in humans most disturbing...

    Some places in the world, not here in the US but it was pointed out to me the other night that some places in this world are isolated and pretty much illiterate to this day. I was not referring to this country FYI

    She still doesn't even accept the word "slavery" or "slaves" is in the Confederate Constitution.

    ^ Is this the truth, or not? ^
    1. IS the truth, straight from the veterans themselves.
    2. IS the truth, not revisionist yankee garbage
    3. IS the truth, based on journals and writings from soldiers themselves, some actually published in the magazines.

    There, I fixed it for ya

    I always check the sources of the information that people are trying to peddle. As it turns out you are the one trying to indoctrinate people. You hide behind a dead mans story that has zero evidence, and peddle a book that is full of lies.

    So you discount memories from veterans of any conflict just because you may not see them in a clearly biased book? How sad.
