Um, last time I checked, the public buildings in the South were displaying the US flag, not the Confederate flag, so this thread makes no sense to me. If you are suggesting that all privately owned Confederate flags should be confiscated, that prospect should far more frightening to freedom-loving Americans than any gratuitous display of the Confederate flag.

Jimmeny Crickets....why are we having this conversation yet again?

Couldn't come up with anything new?

There are hundreds of these type of thread on Citi-data and every single one of them are filled with the same misconception on both sides of the argument

Move on already!

Where in NY? I only have seen it once, maybe twice in the Buffalo area. I always see alot of them when I get to go to the more rural areas of NC or SC. I love the flag, and am glad that people have the pride to show it!
