    Now I confused. What do ugly toes have to do with violin, and how is that to do with the slave flag? Also, why did the person take the violin from the crying baby, and does the baby even know how to play the violin?

    With all due respect to my friends on both sides of this issue - can someone give a reason for taking the flag down that has NOTHING to do with slavery or racism???

    The Confederate flag stands for the Confederacy. The Cornerstone of the Confederacy was slavery. It was clearly stated by the founders of the Confederacy. It really is that simple.

    It's in the Cornerstone speech of the Confederacy. All of you can look it up.

    This is the excerpt:

    ~Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.


    This is what the Confederacy was based on. This is what the Confederate flag represents.

    I seriously doubt that the majority of southern families owned slaves. And for many southerners not everything representing the Confederacy is a symbol of slavery and hatred. Some of the remarks I've read from some of those on the "correct" side of this issue show prejudice against southerners who are proud to be born and raised in the south. But if being proud of being a southerner makes me a redneck fine.

    I'm very proud to have been born and raised in the south. I would be much prouder if a horrid symbol was not flying at the courthouse.

    Cuff,

    For someone who is so proud to live here you sure have a pee poor way of showing it!! You have called local government chicken shi*, ignorant Bubbas and others racist, hate filled bigots...people I might add, you wouldn't know from Adam's a$$ if you passed them on the street.

    Just curious....how much more venom can we expect from your "proudness"?

    Actually jdarg, you haven't seen ugly but I can be just as nasty as you and the lot who agrees with you and many of your racist views. You folks simply can't get over that a decision was made that doesn't suit your agendas. And most of you will continue to pi$$ and moan about it because you're incapable of of recognizing not everyone shares your views.

    The harder you push, the harder others will fight back.

    We'll see. The fact that it is still flying is so pathetic on so many levels.
