It's funny how yall act like only bad southern hicks would dare enslave and abuse ppl. Slaves were beaten up north too. Plus who can forget the Salem witch hunts. Burning women alive because u believe they are a witch. That's pretty crazy stupid and very barbaric of yall northerners. So watch that Yankee tone as if yall are better than someone else!!:)

No doubt....

I think the issue is the ppl up north don't fly
flags that symbolize the Salem Witch hunts, or say
things like..."Salem will rise again":)

I won't throw Your tea in the river and you don't throw My coffee in the river:)

The Revolutionary Wars (both of them) were fierce and bloody battles.
A terrible time in history but it Was necessary...at least for us.

The cost was just to much for us to keep up,with the Dutch And French navies playing on our convoys and so on,but all worked out in the end.lol

I'm in a weird position here. Southern WV is right on the
boarder b/t the north and the south. I have a neighbor (that
I've known since grade school) who flies a confederate flag.
This whole area was divided. Families split, brother fighting
against brother at times.

I fly an American flag. Personally I don't care for the other one.

Nonsense. I have always admired my Southern brothers ability to remain self sufficient and live off the land. Here in Yankee territory such behavior would be met by SWAT teams and police helicopters!

The Salem Witch Trials were more of a religion gone wild thing. And, not quite as prevalent as slavery. Please leave the false equivalencies to the tea party. And, while you're at it, take off those rebel panties, slowly, if you don't mind.....

I agree. Besides the U.S. flag, the only other flag that should ever be flown is a New Orleans Saints flag.

BTW, it was damned cold up in them thar mountains this past Friday night. I'm still trying to thaw out.

10%(maybe)of southerners live off the land. And, really, they don't actually "live off the land". They raise cattle or grow soybeans, milo, wheat, etc. to sell. They buy their groceries at Walmart just like everyone else.

You want to see SWAT teams and police helicopters, come to Oklahoma, the 10th most dangerous state in the country. New York doesn't come close.

I personally don't think your flag should fly next to the Hawaiian flag as it's such a magnificent beautiful flag.lol
