  •  One thing that keeps popping up in my mind... (0+ / 0-)

    NO not that you sick minded...OK so it does come every now and then, but that isn't what I am posting about.

    Sen Allen and others like him who have a fondness for the colors of the former Southern Nation are also rabid Americans.

    Don't get me wrong, I believe in what this country could, should and I hope soon will be, but in my family the Confederate Flag is a symbol of treason and yet the same people who have that flag in their homes, on a bumper sticker "it's heritage, not hate", etc. are the very same people who use the word liberal as a curse word and will tell you and me that we are Un-American, because we believe in what the constituion means and yet they hold onto a symbol of opression and treason.

    Those who are willing to sacrifice liberty for safety deserve neither. (Paraphrasing B. Franklin)
