My grandfather was a WWiI vet ad pow, he spent 18 month in Hilter's Halton, a term for POW camp. He always said the German (true German) were fine people. It was the Nazi's that were the problem.
Don't argue with fools people can't tell who's the fool I have a problem with racist, and with people who feel they should get specail treatment for somethng that happen 140+ years ago, or any other group getting specail treatment for being this or that only. Groups like Vets, I have no problems with them getting some specail treatment, this don't mean a blank check to break of this nation laws, but I think you know what I mean.
I hold the Confedate Flag as a symbol of my heritage, not hate. Hate Groups that use it as such, really tick me off. In my mind, I am honoring the courage and duty to the men who served the cause.
