Sadie, you must be living in Florida or something, because I feel the same way. Even though the rednecks are not exactly the brightest light bulbs in the batch, and may be racist, they at least are not as sniveling and sneaky and arrogant as the yuppies who go around with their flags waving. I'm here in Central Florida and am accustomed to seeing these confederate flags, it stands for their own pride I guess, and it's their identity. But the flag wavers of the american flag don't stand for anything. The truth is they don't even know what they're waving, except that it's supposedly something to do with some so-called "freedom" which has been "attacked." Do you know how many times these SUV drivers with their flags have cut me off in my white Mazda pick-up truck on the road? They tend to be the most aggressive drivers. Well, it's nice to hear voices from the same view point as mine. Have a good one.
: It's like the same dudes driving around with those macho pickup trucks (around here) with the Confederate flags propped up so proudly in their rear windshields are just as "threatening" to me now as those people driving SUVs with American flags stuck to their car doors...
: & the FUNNY thing is, I ACTUALLY feel more comfortable around the Confederate flag-toting rednecks than the American flag wielding yuppies... I mean, at least I know where the rednecks stand on issues. I don't know what to expect from those yuppies! Yuppies stab you in the back, those rednecks stab you in the front. Personally, I like to be able to see what's coming!
