The court of public opinion can be highly subjective & misinformed in certain cases. Economic opportunities will always persist as it did before the flag change & afterwards.

I still think this is an outlandish travesty. And that this flag business will be a minor side show to all kinds of civil unrest that will happen as a result of November 3rd.

I bought up a bunch of 1894 flags too, could be collectors items.

The pushback against the new design is pretty evident if you read the comments of Jackson Jambalaya.

If the new flag fails to pass, then what?

"Perception is everything", is the phrase that comes to mind, on a subject like this. That's why, right or wrong, public opinion holds value in our society. Yes, it true that economic opportunities will always persist, but would you rather them trickle in or open the floodgates?

Yes, I realize it, but I don't like it.

I strongly believe it should be removed from our currency as well.

Perception can be faulty as well.

I would prefer a flood gate prior to aesthetic flag and if we go on statistics then that trickle isn't going to change drastically.

Hopefully, you can make some money reselling them at some point down the road, but it was never prominently displayed by private citizens. Disregarding the issue with the confederate battle flag imagery, it was just not a good looking flag.

MS will remain without a state flag and the Flag Commission will go back to the drawing board and come up with a new design to be voted on.

I sure like the way it has been handled, so far. Confrontations and their accompanying hysterics have been avoided. Last time, the TV stations were filled with shirtless rednecks proclaiming their willingness to die for The Confederate Flag. God, that was embarrassing to watch.

Don't get too confident yet. We're now close to 4 months worth or rioting, and this national demoralization campaign is starting to see a backlash (Kenosha, Kyle Rittenhouse, etc) so I wouldn't say anything until Election Day.
