Unless there's a fundamental change in constitutional rights, which I believe is highly unlikely, I simply don't see that happening.

I think that's the question... what's to say we will not see a fundmental change in constitutional rights... given the current climate.

The nanny state is quickly becoming more and more obtrusive....

What PJA said.

I see nothing about removing the Confederate flag from government property as evidence of a "nanny state."

And what of the Atlanta Chapter of the NAACP demanding the carvings at Stone Mountain be removed?

But your mind is made up... this conversation is going nowhere...

Carry on...

The naacp isn't a branch of the government. And they have the constitutional right to express their views on stone mountain or would u like to limit those rights?
