This old timer just returned from a trip to the far mountains. His head cover is the same one he has worn most of his life, his great grandfather died carrying a flag bearing the same stars and bars forming our young country. The history of our country is a part of it’s history.
His hair has turned white now and his beard is long. The question he asks is a simple one ”How can we know where we are going if we don’t remember where we have been?

Neat Work!

People with nothing to do and too damned lazy to do anything that will actually help anyone so THEY like to make NOISE!

Makes them feel important!

Careful they will want to tell us what color clothes we CANNOT wear— offends someone!——-I am sick of “political correctness” what happened to “FREEDOM” of speech—expression!

The media can be fully pornographic and vile and insanely violent; but we can not display a flag we like! I do not approve of the ideas behind the “Confederacy” but the flag is NEAT!

I don’t know! I think people need something to complain about.
Anywoo It’s each persons choice to do and feel what they want in our free country. I just hope their choice is not to hurt anyone.
Nice job Doug!

You seem to be making a bit of noise yourself. Your freedom of speech doesn’t trump my freedom to call a flag used by racists a racist flag.

Make up a new flag that doesn’t represent racism and fly it all you want.
