No, my fiance would be a she. And I call people who try to overthrow the US government terrorists. The Confederacy is as dead as the old Eastern block communits countries, yet they have had the brains to realize it and it didn't take them over a hundred years. We live in the US, not the Confederacy.

Do you know about the flag. Bet your knowledge is limited?

And I can guarantee they won't be going very far. Maybe the next manager of Auto Bell car wash???
Or perhaps end up like me with a Phd. And as I said before, I have a rebel room. If you are offended, you should reside in a place where there is little liklihood of seeing it again

He specifically said the U.S. government, not any government (e.g., British). In that vein, the Founding Fathers indeed considered the Crown, which threatened the people of the nation that would be known as the United States, as "terrorist."

So people who don't go to church lack that respect you speak of? As a Christian, I really think it's statements like those that give us a bad name.
