I wonder when they are gonna ban Bugs Bunny.



Cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Bugs Buuny are already banned because they encourage violence in children.

Bull and crap.

I wonder how ever did millions of Americans ever survive then that grew up on them.

Maybe politics should be banned.

By the same 'logic'.

I never paid much attention to the north vs south stuff and flag decor.

But now that they want to take it away, I want it.


Now if I only cared enough to order a flag...

And the subway tiles are representations of the confederate flag? You do realize that the letter "X" is now at risk.

No, its not. Only rebels are outlawed, Jees.

Because cartoons didn't bother us, we rolled on the floor and laughed. Bugs taught us plenty.

What a gulli-bull, what a nin-cow-poop, what an ultra-marooned.

It's got an X and I see red! oh that's not good, kill it!

What's next? Pirate flags because the jolly roger looks like an X?

Has stupidity no boundaries?

Stephen Foster was not a rebel and his statue is under attack. Everyone who wants a little attention is now taking shots at innocuous targets. The "protestors" behind this do not understand that people were a product of their times and, not surprisingly, times were very different in the mid-1800's. I am of the opinion that we ignore these fools until their focus shifts to another cause du jour....and then we can ignore that, too.

Yes it has to go.

Anything that can even vaguely be connected to or remind someone of the Confederate States, Civil War, slavery, Confederate flag, soldier or even cotton has to go. No cheating now, the rules are in placed and enforced by public display of childish behavior.


but....we still grow cotton down here.....Oh dear.

Do we really need a letter X?

An X usually means not used.

The whole past is erased wen they rewrite history.

I keep saying this, but get no response. Nobody is protesting the Bush statues in Texas. And they are war criminals.

The whole racism issue isn't real, neither is the issue of flags and statues.

All icons as far as I'm concerned (see my mood).

Flags and yellow ribbons are symbols and I leave symbols to the symbol minded. --George Carlin (paraphrased)

In my post on page 2, I recommend a spiral to be called "the letter formerly known as ex"

Next will it be the railroads because...

And then half a million other things because....

They represent oppression to a few people? What about the rights of those who disagree with those people? Where does it end? In a heap of trampled rubble that's where! Can't people just agree to disagree and get on with it cause this circle jerk is just getting stupid now.

Idk if you guys are sympathizers, or not (don't care).

But being from New York, and having seen this before I'll give you this picture that helps convey what it's supposed to be.
(The highlighted orange part)
imgur.com...

It's literally the intersection at Time Square.

I'm assuming who complained isn't from New York based on the location, and how much time someone from New York using that subway would have to actually complain about this. SJW suck, but tourism is what this is about. People that live there would find out eventually what it is and aren't a problem.

I saw combines harvesting cotton a couple of days ago. No protesters though. Well, it has been a bit hot, around 100 degrees.

I totally agree, been saying it along.

But do be warned, their 'silly' campaign to erase history is not from some silly protesters, this is from the top.

X is a much needed letter and symbol. Why remove it? Why remove any letter? Should we remove Isis from Egypt because ISIS?

How many words contain X? Without X Roman numerals would be useless and Christos would be something else.

This generation is a lost cause.

I had concern for the roman numeral X because of football fans and the super bowl. I think they will get over it if a beer company makes a commercial with a replacement numbering system.
