    He does not deserve to own this car. The car is a symbol of two good ole boys fighting a corrupt government (Boss Hog) just as the Battle Flag symbolizes fighting a corrupt power or rebellion, period.
    What a shame he is just doing so to bow down to the establishment. The same exact reason that flag exist. He does not understand what he purchased or he is too frightened of those around himself or he just needs to be accepted and loved by those fake people around him.

    I’ll take that car as is any day. It’s a piece of American history and a proud symbol at that.

    The Supreme court ruling was illegal. Two judges were conducting gay wedding before the ruling, Those weddings were illegal to do and because of such, both judges should have been recused from the judgement as well prosecuted before hand for breaking the law. By not doing so, the final decision is illegal in itself due to the lack of judicial disqualification. Further more, the concurring language had no legal meaning, the judges did so based purely on personal opinion and not on legal standing. Finally, in judgement, they created law, which is constitutionally only allowed through the legislative branch.

    You can not define the coupling of two gay people as marriage. You may as well say they have been “ginsberged”, or “sotomired”. The supreme court can rule the sky is polka dotted pink, but it’s not. They can rule they are Gods and redefine marriage, but they are absolutely not.

    Marriage is and always will be defined through history as the covenant between a man and a woman and God.

    The fact these people are being prosecuted in such a way fro such an illegal act and punished in such an excessive manner shows just how out of control our government has become.

    Gods law above mans law, it’s time for people to start rebelling against unjust law.

    Hats off to a real hero, a reminder of what people now have forgotten.

    This flag does not historically represent racism. It represents rebellion and states rights over federal power.

    The reason the government is pushing against this now is because the government is trying to attack all things which are a threat, given the short term future the US faces.
    They are attacking this symbol of rebellion,
    They have already attacked the Gadsden flag and those who support the constitution as wackos,
    They are attacking religious freedom and Christianity as the foundation of this countries values,
    They are attacking the right to own a gun,
    They are attacking the rights of free speech,

    They are trying to erase and rewrite history. Anyone see the big picture here yet? A house divided falls and that along with the above should be the real concerns of the American public.

    For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
    For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor.

    Three months for the next Harbinger. Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it’s mistakes. The US has turned away from it’s foundations and in doing so will be judged by the one and only judge.

    The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.

    The true reason for the second amendment. ;)
    Which they are also now targeting.

    This is where a knee jerk reaxction to something that has no real context to an event IE an insane shooter’s association with an object, results in people getting upset about the object and not the insane person’s action.

    Then, because people are so emotional about the action and have to vent at something, they vent at history, slavery, flags, symbolism other people other objects, and totally get lost in the minutia of things that had absolutely nothing to do with the core event. Other people see this and think “I can take advantage of this” and fire up the crowds more and common sense is totally lost and everyone forgets what originally happened. This is what our society has become.

    Freedom of speech means that offensive things maybe said and you have the free will to ignore or isolate such.

    Freedom means you live with the dangers of such or otherwise live with the laws and slavery of governed mindless safety.

    Ironic that an issue of historical slavery in the past pushes society today into such a trap and loss of freedoms for their future.

    The US flag flew for all those years slavery was allowed. Better ban that too if you are liberal. And they will try.

    Lol, I am not kidding, saw the story here last night and decided to go on eBay and pick one up along with a Gadsden flag. Auction s # 231276151708 and 381278368498. Just in the nick of time it seems, visionary.

    How is it helping right now?
    The computer you are using is made up mainly of components created through NASA R&D. The communication systems to help you connect to the internet directly come from NASA research. The clothes you are wearing have some material science applications if you have anything synthetic. The television you watch in home is using satellite communications. The weather is provided by NASA derived space systems. The food you are eating had help from NASA both in technologies for fertilizers , transportation back and forth, technology in those vehicles, farmers using satellite data for farming and watching over their crops, and better management from technologies derived from NASA. Even some of the furniture you sit on come from plastics derived from research in the space program.
    http://spinoff.nasa.gov/
    In fact, it is hard not to find anything in the household or used commonly that does not have some origins of development from NASA. Quart clocks, memory foam in your bed, medicines, smoke detectors, power tools, foods in your cupboards, all here:

    Big Smart Universe fan here I guess. ;)

    And again, to note, all of the issues, do not take away from the fact the confederate flag was a symbol of rebellion, liberties and was a battle flag, while the confederacies flag were actually these three flags:

    Not the stars and bars everyone identifies it to.

    Most people do not know their history. And there are those who want to take advantage of that.

    read the declaration of causes, it was economic. Slavery became an issue but was just one of many issues for the economy.
    http://www.civilwar.org/education/history/primarysources/declarationofcauses.html
    With Eli Whitney’s invention of the cotton gin in 1793, cotton became very profitable. This machine was able to reduce the time it took to separate seeds from the cotton. However, at the same time the increase in the number of plantations willing to move from other crops to cotton meant the greater need for a large amount of cheap labor, i.e. slaves. Thus, the southern economy became a one crop economy, depending on cotton and therefore on slavery.
    On the other hand, the northern economy was based more on industry than agriculture. In fact, the northern industries were purchasing the raw cotton and turning it into finished goods. This disparity between the two set up a major difference in economic attitudes. The South was based on the plantation system while the North was focused on city life. This change in the North meant that society evolved as people of different cultures and classes had to work together. On the other hand, the South continued to hold onto an antiquated social order.
    This lead to the issue of federal versus state rights as well the abolitionist movement and the election of Lincoln, who was anti-slavery. 7 states seceded from the union before the election due to Lincoln.

    The civil war was not about slavery, it was about banking and money. The key issues were brought on by technologies of the time like the cotton gin, north policies on tariffs of products and economic issues which favored the north over the labor works of the south. Slavery was an issue because the labor cost, but it was a lower priority for both sides having been debated in that time since the revolution.
    History book now teach it as the primary reason for the war, but it was far down the list of issues for the north and south. In fact, more blacks fought for the south, a factor Lincoln decided to take advantage of by declaring freedom for blacks who fought for the north cause.

    The flag itself represents military battalions and rebellion. In the time, it was never a symbol for slavery, it is only in modern times that it has been used as such.

    It is now out of ignorance being taken out of historical context to be used as a symbol for hate and self interest.

    You cannot punish the past for changed and current morals now valued. People of the past did what they felt necessary because in that moment, it was felt the right thing to do. Times change, as do morals adjust to present issues. They are different and to condemn the past with today’s moral values when the environment and society were different, is insanity.

    It is learning from the past, not living in the past; and going forward that defines who we truly are.

    The technology needed to build and send space craft out has produced secondary spin off uses in hundreds of thousands of everyday uses on Earth. NASA Research and Development technologies are available for public used which has created incredible products in medicine, computers, autos, home, firefighting, MRI technology in medicine, fabrics in clothes such as Velcro, fireproof materials used by fire fighters, composite materials used for buildings, aircraft and autos, the secondary spin off of items developed for NASA is incredible. Even how to make a better bowling ball. For every dollar spent at NASA, there has been a minimum return of 3 dollars that is fed back into the public sector. It is one of the few federal programs which has paid back by far much more than is spent in the program.
    So while you think it is wasted money, if you THINK about it, all the things you find important have been greatly helped by that NASA spending which is a .03 percent. If the US budget was a dollar bill, that is just 1/3rd of a penny of that entire budget of 100 penny’s.

    I wish every social program had that payoff, which they do not. Despite the most spending in history of any nation on Earth, there has been no social rising of the people “helped”, Instead social programs trap people making them dependent on further government support.

    How about we spend more money on NASA to help develop technologies further and inspire and help people instead of harmful social programs.

    Absolutely, there are things the government could be doing to build the economy.

    Priority one, cut corporate taxes. We are the highest in the world and US corporation flee when they can. Cut the taxes to be an incentive to invest back in the US.

    Subsidize US manufacturing. Just as New York is now learned, cut back taxes and add incentives will bring business back. Ad subsidies to pull; back in US jobs.

    Cut minimum wage. The biggest benefactor of wage increases is the government through matching taxes. Those taxes are poorly spent back into the economy. Let the free market decide and you will see businesses that make money generally pay their workers well in a good economic environment.

    Stop allowing the patent office to raise cost on intellectual property. Right now, new policies are making it more expensive to get and maintain IP. Stop that now so new businesses can prosper.

    Deregulate, the EPA, legal cost are killing business. Instead pf making new laws, look for barriers and eliminate them.

    Stop immigration and 1-HB’s. Replacing the middle class with lower wage immigrants is killing the middle class, it’s criminal.

    Start making the government do it’s job, immigration reform, police crime instead of enforcement, etc. Gov has lost focus of it’s mission to serve.

    Student work programs, make them earn those grants / scholarships in the summer through community work.

    Just off the top of my head, these issue could boost the economy.

    People are being sued for placing an American flag in their front yards now. Your are considered an extremist for supporting the US constitution, being conservative or Christian now in the US. The military prosecutes those who openly practice such now. It is now politically incorrect to want to uphold the law.

    It already is happening here.

    Yes, the Boy Scouts went politically left with the gay issue and now you will see leadership just fold and do silly idiotic measures like this.
    I really believe down the road you will see official boy scout skirt uniform options. It will be popular with those homosexual leaders.
    The board is made up of leftist liberal wusses. People should be pulling their kids out in droves and looking to the Trail Life program.
    If the Boy Scout board thinks that is a problem, back off, I have a super soaker and I am not afraid to use it!

    Don’t confuse a puppet with the real thing. Satan according to the bible comes out of Turkey. Interesting to note that Obama did say President Erdogan of Turkey is best buddies with Obama, so much that upon being reelected, Erdogon was the first person Obama called.

    Erdogon has signed a treaty with most of the Islamist extremist middle eastern nations to attack Israel and has been heavily building up it’s military with the help of Obama. He highly disrespects women and has pushed for second class programs with them. He has pushed for middle east currencies and has recently declared himself a God. At the same time Obama has been aiding Islamist extremist and arming them in the middle east while opposing Israel. Most others here are aware of the other “issues” and allegiance Obama has with Islam.

    Same category of evil, not the same person.

    As well we need to wake up and defend our ethics and understand that the value character does matter.

    Muslims are making inroads with others because we are becoming a socially immoral society with issues like art, entertainment and gay marriage, corruption in government. Liberals have given the immoral minority such a strong voice and forced terrible values into society that it has become acceptable. They have corrupted our system pf freedoms with social programs like education and Obama care, dumb down the people and such people allowing their freedoms to be taken away, values stripped. The liberal architects like Gruber note people are stupid to allow such and he is right.

    We have lost focus on the big picture, allowed the corrupt to lead us, evil to take hold and then take advantage of society by dividing and argue about the little things an minutia. We have become lost and cannot see the big picture and have LOST the values that guide greatness, leaders who truly have the interest of our nation at heart, leaders with values which made our nation so great.

    And when minorities are to wake up to the insanity that is now happening, our leaders put for immigration, to bring in a whole new minority group who do not share our values and are uneducated, to take advantage of and give illegal immigrants the power to vote and keep corrupted leaders in office.

    The devil is in the details and our house is lost and divided in those details, one that cannot stand as is.
