Sure. What the hell does that have to do with this topic?
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 have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”
Before Obama sent the liberals into a tizzy over the Confederate Flag, it appeared on posters, toys and was hung in dorm rooms and in front of homes, and no one thought twice about it.
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.
