    Not sure about the rest of you all, but where I live I see a lot of folks proudly displaying the stars and bars. Pickup trucks, rice burners, mini-vans, sedans, you name it. A lot of folks are flying the confederate flag on their vehicles as they go about their daily business. Occasionally see the Gadsden flag and the American flag flown with it.

    I read that as basically a thumb in the eye of the PC terorists.

    I've never owned a confederate flag , but I'm thinking about buying one and flying it along with the Gadsden flag. :thumbs:

    This isn't so much about a flag as is it about people who are offended by everything someone else does or says.

    The globalists, global elite, internationalists or whatever you want to call the one worlder crowd know they if they can divide us as a people they can conquer us as a sovereign nation.

    I hate PC terrorists.

    I have no attachment to the flag, but will fly it just to aggravate them.

    So you.......retaliate? Were it me, i would simply continue doing what i was doing and let the so called "politically correct" just get po'ed . I delight in the fact that my chickens and "lone wolf" rooster , aptly named Peckerwood, gives our yuppy next door neighbors fits. When he finally drops dead, im getting another one. :D

    My yuppie next door neighbors? :laugh:

    You must have me confused with one of them thar city slickers. Nobody around here can afford to have a rooster and should one get lost and wander into this neighborhood by mistake the starving stray cats would eat it alive.

    Well I'm sure them thar Chinese restaurants would have no problems taking some dead cat for those all you can eats......but Peckerwood already tangled with a hawk and since I don't see any cats comming around.....or maybe that's my three dogs that take care of those critters.

    If you mean the Confederate flag, I have one but we live so far out in the sticks, it wouldn't make much of a statement for us to fly it. We'd just be flying it for the cows.

    But I do have a Confederate flag sticker on my pickup truck (next to my Reagan/Bush '84 sticker, my "I'm a Dye Hard Fan" sticker, my "Kick Bama Kick" sticker, my NRA sticker, and my Jerry Jeff Walker sticker) and I do have a t-shirt with a Confederate flag on it that I like to wear to Walmart just to annoy the people there.

    The flag is treasonous.

    And the flag sums up the racist feelings of a lot of people.

    I personally don't think its really a flag issue. I don't fly a flag at my house except The Stars and Stripes on Independence Day. Neither do I have a Confederate Flag. I see more displayed on the back of vehicles in the past month then I have seen in a lifetime. In my opinion they are flown as a symbol of rebellion and intimidation by those doing so.

    I agree with the rebellion part. In my case , I'm rebelling against the PC terrorists driving this insanity.
