    A rebel battle flag has been raised as part of memorial off I 95 just
    outside Richmond.

    One fun quote:

    "As sons and daughters of the South, we have inherited a birthright. Ours is a proud heritage."

    So what heritage are they talking about? The heritage of slavery? Of denying certain members of the population basic civil rights? The heritage of putting a rebel flag on the roof of the car and yelling "YEE-HAH!" What heritage?

    The new and revised Confederate States of America isn't far behind. And, no, it won't include Obamacare.

    Isn't this nothing more than a high school painting a rock on the hill overlooking their rival after being outscored 50-6?

    I could see this happening in some other parts of the country but I've
    never thought of The Richmond area as this backwards.

    CSA Mark II will also include a good swath of the Great Plains and the Intermountain West. Probably how the Civil War would've broken down if they had all 48 contiguous states.

    I've said for a while that we need a northern and southern US. They get everything west of I-95, everything south of I-70 and everything east of the Arizona border,.

    Southern heritage?? Please.

    I am as ass-backwards conservative as anyone on this board but the Rebel flag has no place in our society. A tradition of slavery, the formal attempt to destroy the nation and then after starting a war that killed so many, many Southerners made it their mission to make life as miserable as possible for minorities for 100 years.
