with a society that is worrying about kids bringing guns to school... many parents are willing to let certain "rights' get bent...

and we are not talking about Bumper stickers.. but a flag...

and speaking of bumper stickers.. this teacher got fired.. for hers..

Yeah, I've read that the last thing Abraham Lincoln wanted was integration of whites and blacks in America after the emancipation. His belief was that the freed slaves needed to be relocated out of the country (preferably Central America).

As far as racism today, while I was in the Army the most racist people I ever met were from the northwestern states like Oregon, Minnesota and Wisconsin. I don't think I met any racist whites from the South. Now racist blacks and racist Hispanics, that's a completely different story.

maybe he should take a stand when he is in a better financial position to do so.
So we should only fight for our freedoms when it is convenient for us or when it doesn't actually require any sacrifice on our part?

i always thought the confederate flag was cool ... but i grew up watching the dukes of hazzard ... i understand that it was his own personal truck ... just a question ... what if the flag was a nazi flag? not saying they represent the same thing, but the freedom of expression issue ...

If everyone has the same right to express themself there than yes even that flag. The CSA battle flag is nothing more than a symbol much like the fish ornament, the mason thing or even the stupid gay flag that is out there. All these people have a irgh tto express who they are even if what they have offends me or what I have offends them. I hold the urge to rear end cars with the Darwin fish all the time but hey they have a right to be wrong.

Definitely another thread; but you'll find that there is no real evidence for macro-evolution, which is the main focus of Darwinism. We can see evidence of micro-evolution (adaptations within a species), but macro-evolution (ie: lizards evolving into birds) doesn't happen.

This is how Darwin's theory should be taught:

That's actually more logical than real evolutionary theory.

Punctuated equilibrium = a lizard lays a bunch of eggs and one of them just happens to have a bird in it. That bird somehow manages to survive long enough to find another bird (conveniently of the opposite gender) that hatched from a lizard egg and together they become the ancestors of every modern bird in existence.

I guess that makes sense because we used to have a dog who gave birth to fish and goats and chameleons and bald eagles all the time.

Directed panspermia = we were all transplanted on earth by aliens. Seriously that's what passes for scientific theory these days.
