    To me, the flag represents all the things CJ and y'all say it does and more. Men of honor doing their duty is something to never forget or belittle.

    A fight against the worst kind of tyranny. A lost cause perhaps but it was a brave stand.

    Spartacus lost against the Romans.
    William Wallace lost against the British.

    The loss doesn't make the fight any less noblr.

    I've never given it a whole lot of thought.

    Those rubes who wear it on their trucks or jackets...they're living in the past. Not the past of slavery; but a past where their world was smaller; and everyone had pride in where they were from. Nothing wrong with that; it's just...living in the past.

    To that scoutmaster I spoke about...I don't think he was being candid.

    To me...it's part of history. I don't have a problem in flying it on state memorials or buildings; it BELONGS there. It IS history. But it's not overly relevant to me, as a symbol - the lessons of that war lie elsewhere.

    It really represents nothing more to me than the symbol for the Confederate States of America which does not exist as a nation. I am indifferent to it.
    It takes a FAMILY to raise a child--Not Hitlery Klinton's Socialist, Anti-Family, Nanny-State...I mean, "Village".

    Islam is a religion of violence and terror as practiced by the Islamofascists. The Muslims that do speak out against terror are then terrorized by the Islamofascists and are ignored by the Lap Dog Media.

    It was not slavery but States' Rights that drove the formation of the Confederacy.

    It was not slavery but the Abolitionism movement that drove the conflict that drove the Secession. The Abolitionists seemed quite unconcerned about slavery and other lacks of human freedom anywhere except in the Southern states. And they were ready to end it, not with persuasion and education; not even with civil means; but with aggressive extralegal acts and with unilateral legal assault against the States.

    It was a FAD - not unlike this Gender-Bender fad we're seeing the Progressives wallow in, right now. They had only marginal serious concern, most of them, for the actual slaves - they were MAKING A STATEMENT, beating their chests, on how "good" they were.

    We see these movements from time to time, and always populated by the same kind of idle, too-wealthy society drones - who are totally devoid of introspection and consequence. For example, no proposal had been made to legally obtain the slaves' freedom - through payment or partial payment to the effected plantations.

    That was a big part of the resistance. Rightly or wrongly, the plantations had a lot of money tied up in that. Remove that problem, and they'd have been a lot more open to a change. The trend was away from the large plantations, as steamboats and the railroads were changing life down South.

    Giving money away? Much cheaper than the wholesale WASTE that was the War.

    If this hadn't happened, these busybodies would have pushed things to violence another way. Temperance was on the horizon...another ill-thunk Progressive movement. Or something else. Now they're gonna stir people to violence with their insanity about homosexuality and gender.

    It's about these INTRUSIVE BUSYBODIES.

    terry McAuliffe, governor of Virginia wants to remove confederate flag license plates.

    Dear Mr. Play GOvernor.

    You are not a Virginian, never have been, never will be. You are Nothing but Bill and Hillary Clinton's Yes man, their useful idiot, their house nigger.

    THE FACT that you ARE governor is testimony to the corruption and stupidity of urban Virginia voters.

    so. shut the hell up, collect your undeserved paycheck and leave us the hell alone.

    The progs want to reduce the states to administrative districts - and nothing more.

    ALL power to be held in Washingtoon. The Elites with their lifetime sinecures; backed by twelve idiots picked for ideological fealty with the President of the time...will ram through THEIR way.

    Which is always the way of tyranny.

    There is no room for differing opinions or practices; and NO room for history they disapprove of.

    I hope this gets a serious examination going, of the mess we're in thanks to these illiberal Democrats.

    That Clinton hack is looking for money. The Sons of Confederates have already said they'll sue the living hell out of him if he tries it.

    Nazi book fires.

    The sudden energy when those who want despotism, who want to tell others how to live, who want to insult and offend and hurt and even kill those people they see as their enemies...always happens.

    The years ahead are gonna be ugly.
