I say Keep the Present Flag and just get Rid of Every Friggin Person in this Great Republic who has a Problem with it . I hear the Mexican and Canadian Flags are nice , maybe they can go their Permanently and Admire them without being Offended by them on a Constant basis..........

I propose the US adopt a new flag: totally white without fringe, borders or any other adornments.

I agree... wait.... The white on a flag means white supremacy, not surrender!

We all know that it is coming up for debate here in the next 10 years, you can bet on it. 20 years ago, people would have laughed in your face if you told them the Confederate flag would be taken down and all this controversy created. I'm just glad it is all over, and we can now begin the forced unification process.

I would add, the only non-offensive flag that would be acceptable is an invisible one.

To raise the white flag is to give up, that's a clever one.

I'd prefer a flag where each star was an inalienable right, each stripe an expected sacrifice to preserve said right. Ideally it would have more stars than stripes but it would be more honest. If we lost a star from our flag, I'm sure more people would notice.



Apply stripes as necessary as indicated by your local representative fascist agreements.

The US flag doesn't offend me. It's the official flag of the nation. Why do we need to change it?


The US flag may not offend you but it certantly offends others in the US as t-shirts with the flag And the flag itself on it are even banned/ordered to be removed in certain public places all over the U.S.

The confederate flag also did not offend everyone and had no discrimitory meaning to a lot of people. but since we seem to have to be %1000 PC these days the flag had to go.

So following all that PC "logic" why would we keep the US flag as it is just because it doesnt offend you?

No, it's just more endless whining from the right, about something that has absolutely no impact at all on their lives.
Y'know, same sh*t different day.

Because its the flag of surrender, and we have certainly done that to political correctness.

Actually we should just fly the American flag upside down....I'd say we're in dire distress at this point.

How juvenile and immature do we have to become over this PC crap?

Everyone is sounding like a bunch of sarcastic, immature brats because we're being asked to clean up our act and respect each other.

It's getting really old. Really, really old.
The voice of reason, I know there are a few sane rational people on this forum, instead of belligerent ignorant children, deny ignorance, for the most part, it's the antithesis of it.

You so awesome for that post.

Back on topic, How about we just don't have a flag. I mean that would be better then listening to people complain about a piece of cloth. It's really sad we are focusing on something so stupid when their is more important topics to be concern about like homelessness.

I think the White Flag idea is the best one. After all it is the surrender flag and that is what we are doing as a nation. Surrendering to every politically correct notion the liberals can dream up. Liberals are taking advantage of the silent majority in this country who are busy building businesses, paying taxes, supporting their families. Meanwhile the liberal left are busy trying to make a federal issue out of any and all PC garbage they can come up with in order to get hard working families to pay their bills.

The call for reparations for slavery is not dead in this country and it will come up again soon. Too many black people in this country feel an entitlement even though their lives are far far better than anything their ancestors had to endure, whether they were slaves or not. And they are telling people like me, whose ancestors were as poor as anyone and never dreamed of owning slaves for all the right reasons, to pay the bill. I simply won't do it. If my taxes ever go up for the purpose of paying reparations I will find a way to get it back. And I will begin a scathing campaign against any politician that supports such nonsense.

If I had the skills I would write a book on the history of slavery, pointing out that blacks in Africa were just as guilty in the slave trade as any White person. And that blacks enslave other blacks to this day in diamond mines in Africa. And every country that ever was participated in slavery at one time or another and that the victims of slavery were not restricted to blacks. White people were enslaved in Europe for hundreds of years in the middle ages. And probably still are in some countries.

Less than 5% of southerns owned slaves. Only the very wealthy. When I think of the south in the 1700's I mostly think of poor farmers and not the big plantation owners. If the south is such a bad place in the 21st Century why do so many blacks still live there? Especially in this day and age where we are such a mobile society? Of course that is an easy one....they live there because they like it there just as most people like where they live. Opportunity drives where people put down their roots these days and while there certainly is still racism it is not nearly as prevalent as is portrayed. Many blacks, who oddly have been able to prosper and succeed in their careers are starting to see this. It seems many are starting to take offense at the portrayal of oppression and are starting to speak out. We have a black president for God's sake. Black Supreme court justices, members of Congress. There are no restrictions if you want to do the hard work to prosper no matter what skin color you have. Find the right path for you that will get you there, whether it is the military, community college, trade school, scholarships, and more other ways I can mention here and take it. There is no secret formula.

How about no flag at all? Since material/physical objects can all one way or the other be construed as offensive if you twist its meaning enough and get enough people on the band wagon.

I'm waiting for the day when it becomes illegal to say "merry Christmas"

Are you kidding? It practically is everywhere, particularly on the liberal west coast. Again the question is not, am I offended? Rather, it is "Do I have a right to be offended"?
