I assume its one of the other gave me a thumbs up… But who’s counting? Is this some kind of kindergarten game? Do you think you are losing? Do we need a time out?

Nah, common misconception tat Winston Churchill said it, its a misattributed quote. https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Winston_Churchill
According to research by Mark T. Shirey, citing Nice Guys Finish Seventh: False Phrases, Spurious Sayings, and Familiar Misquotations by Ralph Keyes, 1992, this quote was first uttered by mid-nineteenth century French historian and statesman François Guizot when he observed, Not to be a republican at 20 is proof of want of heart; to be one at 30 is proof of want of head. (N’être pas républicain à vingt ans est preuve d’un manque de cœur ; l’être après trente ans est preuve d’un manque de tête.) This quote has been attributed variously to George Bernard Shaw, Benjamin Disraeli, Otto von Bismarck, and others.
Furthermore, the Churchill Centre, on its Falsely Attributed Quotations page, states “there is no record of anyone hearing Churchill say this.” Paul Addison of Edinburgh University is quoted as stating: “Surely Churchill can’t have used the words attributed to him. He’d been a Conservative at 15 and a Liberal at 35! And would he have talked so disrespectfully of Clemmie, who is generally thought to have been a lifelong Liberal?”

The road to hell is paved with good intentions… Having good intentions does not make a ‘good man’.
Thanks for the well cliche'd reply 1776! Did you also give me the thumbs down?
No, but would you like me to?

The Flag Etiquette are not enforceable ‘laws’ or ‘rules’. They are only suggestions, as per Supreme court ruling that they went against free speech. See Johnsto vs. Texas, and United States vs. Eichmann.
Also if they were enforceable many things people would do out of patriotism would be banned as well..
Where did you hear that?The FCC just gave more frequencies to Amateur's in the VHF range.
Nope the FCC is going to make it a crime to broadcast on AM/FM, also they will make it a crime to be a Christian.
scrap where did you hear new vhf that would be big news

I understand it probably has something to do with the fact that the Battle Flag of the Northern Virginia was associated with General Lee’s regiment, and its largely out of respect to General Lee, that it came to represent ‘rebel flag’ and the ‘south’. It was used by several units in WW2 and other wars to represent the South, ever before it was used by the KKK in the 1960s.
Thanks, It helps when you know the history behind things.

Almost every symbol known to man is considered ‘hateful’ by some other group.

Also the individual who probably ushered the largest romanticizing of the South, Confederates, and the Rebel Flag (neo-Confederatism?) was probably Woodrow Wilson, who loved Birth of a Nation, and what he called it’s ‘true history’, that he even screened it in the White House. He also did a lot to re-segregate the military (which up to that time was becoming diverse, and more open)…
Actually the flag was used as the Battle Flag of Northern Virginia, and variations were used by several other units.
William Porchar Miles, the person who designed the flag in 1861, also designed it to be “The Confederate Flag” but it was rejected in favor of other designs, but later incorporated into two later flags. It was also used as the Naval Jack for the Confederacy, other states used it with slight variations for their state or local armies.
Actually the flag was also used during WW2, and possibly into the Korean War (pre-1960), and into the Vietnam War by several units with Southern names such as the (Dixie and Rebel Company), they were sometimes put up where the units won a major battle, such as the Marines at Shuri Palace. It was also the Naval Ensign for the USS Columbia which was named for the Capital of South Carolina.

What good are any written amendments if the judges can just ignore them anyways.

Can’t call it the General Lee, that would be racist….
