How about, “Save a life, obey the law”!

Midwest–You put it better than I did. South Carolina was afraid that Lincoln would end slavery and left the union, followed by three other states(I can’t remember who at the moment). The firing on Fort Sumpter set it off, followed by the rest of the south leaving the union.

I had Direct TV, dumped it several years ago. I get my internet through the phone company (suck as it does) and went with Roku. Through it I get Netflix and Amazon Prime, plus lots of freebees. I also get digital tv the old way, through the air.
Don’t need no stinkin’ cable, even if I could get it!

How true! History is history, good or bad. The war between the states was about state’s rights, fueled in part by the slavery issue. Lincoln was fine letting slavery continue if it meant keeping the union in one piece.
That's not entirely true. I have heard that Lincoln didn't want to make ending slavery his focus, but he did want to end it. Also, the notion that slavery was a side issue in the civil war is a myth. I have read the succession papers of a few of the southern states and slavery was a focal point of documents. Technically it is true to say that it was about states rights, but it was first and foremost about the states "rights" to keep slavery.
And on another note, I have yet to hear a good argument for keeping the rebel flag around. I have heard many people say that it doesn't represent slavery or racism, it represents heritage. But, isn't that heritage that the flag represents a heritage of slavery and racism. I'm not saying there is no place for the flag. I think there is an important historical value to the flag and it should be represented in museums and memorials to remind us of a dark time in our history. I don't, however think any government building should be flying the flag for any purpose other than those I mentioned. I also don't think the government or any private citizen has the right to tell any private citizen that they can't fly the flag.

State's rights, really? Have you read the Confederate Constitution? A state had to comply FULLY to be included. How is that state rights? It seemed to be more about private property rights than state rights.
Can you imagine all those poor southern boys taking up arms so a handful of rich southerners could keep their slaves.? Would anybody risk their life so the Rockefellers could keep servants? Its absurd. Slavery was an issue among much broader issues, especially cotton which supplied northern mills and the economic freedom of states.

Are the Dems really that stuck on stupid? Good grief! Why not put someone who is not a total socialist in? You might have a chance!
I wish, but that complete Socialist, COL Sanders is polling all too well with the Dems.

I’m an old trucker too. I’m also a Coast Guard Vietnam vet. I also have no tattoos.
I’m with you, why disfigure the one and only unique body that God gave you?
My take: If you want to disfigure your body, that’s your business. I, also, think you are foolish!
That is just me.
