The Confederate Battle Flag raises Again
Yea I know its Wednesday morning and its not my normal day to blog but I came across this rather unusual article on MSN.Com this morning. It's about the Confederate Battle Flag aboard the International Space Station. Apparently, the Russians thought it would be cool idea to fly the stupid thing on ISS and then sell it on eBay of all places. Why can't the battle flag die a slow and painful death never to rise again? Why is this thing still popping up when you least expect it? How is it the Russinas know about the flag and why would they think it'd be a good idea to put it on the ISS in the first place, not to mention selling it on eBay for a profit? It doesn't make any sense to me how the US wouldn't say something to them, like you know what that thing stands for don't you? We don't really think this best thing to sell on eBay, or we don't really want the Confederate Battle Flag on board the ISS. I find it very strange that of all the flags they could have chosen to fly on board the ISS they pick the Confederate Battle Flag. What is wrong with them? For those who wish to check it out here is the article on MSN.Com.

I'm sorry, what does "that thing" stand for that is so shameful? I am still personally against Federal Tyranny. But I will give you this idea: If you want it to "die", you can't hide it, instead, you need to overexpose it. Make it a symbol at gay rights rallys, wave it at immigration marches, etc. If the flag is associated with everything, maybe it won't be so upsetting to you.
