as far as your comments on the confederate flag being banned at nascar tracks. i think you need to stop telling others what they can and cannot do. it is ther god given right under the constitution. that flag also was carried by americans. whats next? telling someone you can't fly the american flag. you know there are those out there that would like to see that also. why dont you blast them for awhile.

What is wrong with the confederate flag....it is part of american history...this is a free country and if mexican's are allowed to fly the american flag under their flag or fly it upside down what is wrong with american's displaying part of their history...this is pure and simply stupid....just something to spark another controversy about something that is so stupid...if it offend's you don't go to races.....duh........it offend's me when I can't pray in public, use the name of Jesus...etc. etc. etc. but do I quit living no....grow up people......IT IS PART OF OUR HISTORY AND SHOULD OFFEND NO ONE

I am an American first Texan second and Hispanic third. I fly our American Flag and Texas Flag and proud of who I am. The Confederate Flag is part of American history and very much part of NASCAR. Texans are proud to be Texans our pride is big and our history is bigger. Don't hate on the Confederate States they are proud of their history just like all Americans are. Ever seen a soccer game played in the United States? There are so many foreign flags there that you forget what country they are playing in. Yes America gives them the right even as foreigners to fly their flags, NOW you want to tell me that we are trying to ban our own Historical Flags but let them fly their foreign flag, please, this is total BULLSHIT. That's just as stupid as giving Billions of dollars to other countries but Katrina survivors are still homeless!!!!! Very Stupid, fly your flags with pride and remember first we are Americans.

I am doing a senior paper on whether or not the confederate battle flag should be allowed to be flown in public places or worn in public places such as school, or federal property. I believe that it should be allowed anywhere. History cannot be erased, thats the bottom line. Ya'll ALL need to take a look at history, and our rights in the constitution.

The flag does need to be allowed anywhere it is heritage and pride.I know the history of the flag and of the Civil War it is one of my favorite parts of history it is my passion.I know my rights too.Freedom of speech is one I believe in.It is my right to display my heritage and beliefs.History is a part of us we can not deny!
