    Well, they actually do have the right to fly it.

    Yes they do but if NASCAR wanted to they could ban it also . If you walk into an NFL stadium you are not allowed to wave a flag.

    Maybe NASCAR is just more freedom-loving than the NFL. Boom, why don't you try an experiment? Get some friends go to the infield at the next race, boom rap music with the bass way up and get a giant black power fist flag to wave.

    You can sit next to them, play Molly Hatchet at the same decibels and wave a Confederate flag.

    See who gets towed first.

    Hell I'd call the tow truck - I love Molly Hatchet.

    I'm sure Tyler 71351 or one of our other fine Louisiana correspondents could vouch for this, but isn't this the human version of all the birdshit that is left on the statue of WT Sherman on the LSU campus?

    The man founded the university and was very fond of Southerners. . . and that's what he gets in return. Like the AJC story describes... shameful and disgusting.

    The War to Eradicate Slavery. (Because that IS what it was about.) ;)

    Not to mention historically inaccurate.

    Any one of those fine Southerners who calls it the "war of Northern Aggression" ever heard of Fort Sumter?

    Slavery was an abomination, and several of my long-ago relatives died fighting for the Army of the Republic.

    But just for the sake of discussion, however, shouldn't states that voluntarily joined the union also have the right to voluntarily seceed?

    Obviously Abraham Lincoln thought otherwise.

  12. Actually, the "we asked in so we can ask out" argument is as comstitutionally incorrect as it was militarily ineffective. The Constitution, it has been concluded, was established, not between the states, even though it was sent state-by-state for ratification, but by the body of the American people. Hence, its first three words. That's how an old Con Law expert explained it to me, anyway.
