    Is there any other country on Earth that gives as much of a fuck about flags as the USA? I mean, it is widely accepted the Confederate Flag is a symbol of slavery & racism. How the fuck is this even a debate?

    Idiots want to have an acceptable flag to represent their love for dukes of hazard, and it's also a symbol for racism, and this is an added bonus for them of course, but in order to not arouse too much hatred they throw a vague blanket of "it's about southern heritage" over it.

    What pisses me off is how this thing that should have been done every damn day for the last 53 years is somehow supposed to fix everything. "OK, OK, 9 innocent people were senselessly shot down by a scrawny white punk, we'll stop taunting you with this symbol of both slavery and our utter lack of respect for civil rights in this country. So, we good?"

    With every irrelevant post on fb that I see while procrastinating, this becomes even more OTM.

    The NRA has to be pretty happy about this flag controversy.  No one is talking about any gun control, just flags.

    I saw a quote recently, I paraphrase--  After Newtown, the gun rights supporters won.  It was over when American society decided the slaughter of children was tolerable.

    True. Healthcare, marriage equality & Confederate monuments being vandalized around the country has me actually proud to be an American.

    I am in Little Rock, Arkansas today. My GPS was guiding me back to the airport and it was taking me through an area heavily under construction and I drove through an area that had a sign "Road Closed. Thru Traffic Only".

    I decided Fuck It I only need to go .4 miles and right after I blew past the sign a cop pulled me over. He gets out and in a thick Southern accent says, "Son, what in the hell are you doing?" I said, "Going to the airport."

    He goes, "Did you see that sign that said Road Closed?" "Yes," I said. He responds did you see two cop cars sitting there too?" I told him, "Yes, in fact I did but misinterpreted the signage."

    He does the most Southern Cop thing I could imagine. Looks down the highway and lets out a giant spit from chewing tobacco. Then, "Well god damn, son I am don't know what to say other than give you a warning. Just stay to the right and get the Hell on with your business."

    Thank you so much for sharing that story. You've brought a ray of sunshine to this otherwise cloudy day. Brilliant.
