    Like I said to Wolf, I see your point. Of course one could view the US flag as being synonymous with slavery as well at least up until emancipation. Of course the "US" at that point corrected the err of its ways. The confederacy did not.
    I'm simply pointing out that "US" state had slaves AFTER emancipation.

    I think it's a delightfully harmless action that keeps the state legislature busy to they won't cause us even more problems. The idea that they might solve problems is ludicrous.

    Are you aware the Mississippi is one of the states that seceded as was invaded by the Yankees? That is part of their heritage.

    It's a flag -- one that descendants of Confederates hold dear because it's part of their heritage.

    All the PC silliness over it is just that -- PC silliness.

    I think it's a dumb law to force universities to fly it -- but they have every right to fly it.
    OK, love ya BUT....Obama did nothing like that. Most "liberals" already had a dislike for it due to its use by certain jackwad groups/people who use it as a representation of their dickheadedness. The proper blame for its abhorrence at its sight lies squarely upon the shoulders (and sheets) of those $#@!s.
    At the end of the day...I am still glad that I am me. Tail and all.
