|Not the first time this flag has been at the center of a fight.|
(If anyone knows who painted this, please let me know. My Google Fu is weak right now!)
That doesn't fit their agenda.
It's about a flag.
Seriously, a flag.
For those who aren't sure, this is what is known as a "distraction," it's not the real issue but something else which the screaming crazies of the world want to take away from people.
Yes, I know some people find it "offensive," get over yourselves. It has meaning to some folks and with good reason. That meaning is good to some people, bad to others.
And please, don't compare that flag to the Nazi flag. As soon as you do, you've invalidated your argument. There is no comparison between those two items whatsoever.
I'm pretty damn sure the Confederacy didn't want to conquer the Union. Really, they just wanted to be left alone.
We could argue from now to eternity regarding what caused the war, whether or not those states had a right to secede or not. Immaterial really. The government in Washington D.C. decided that they didn't, went after the secessionists and defeated them.

I'm sure there are some folks who want to try again. Really? Seriously? Exactly what are you fighting for?
That war ended 150 years ago.
I get the whole fight against tyranny thing. Really, I do.
If you wish, The Skipper has a pretty good post over at his place you should read. Some fair comments too. I don't agree with everything being said over there but the folks are at least being civil with each other.
Which is more than I can say for some folks.
Just wanted to chime in on this topic. FWIW.
One thing I will say, the Federal government is out of control. The Congress is useless and the Administration borders on the criminally negligent.
The Supreme Court?
Don't get me started.
There's days it just don't pay to get out of bed.
Another circus for the masses.
