Re: Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch....

Very cool place. Think '82 was the last time I was there. Is it still "dry fly only?" Would love to get my son out there to fish some of the water I cherished as a kid.

Re: I heard that some people got shot

all sc has done is sensationalised a flag for future racists. that's all. oh, and removed all doubt of its actual history. well done. in austria that is called a kneejerk reaction. adds up to a whole lot of fuck all. Have to say I admired how people from both sides of the debate were able to mingle...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

If that new avatar is who I think it is, you get an A+ for pot stirrin'. Shouldn't be an issue for those who know history. Now, it certainly could be for those who fall into the group of believing anything which is repeated enough. Regardless, a man who should be admired by thinking people able to ...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

In the interest of compromise I'll offer this regarding the flag issue: It seems there's a growing contingent that wants to fly the stars and bars as a symbol of historical rememberance and to honor their ancestry. I think it's totally appropriate to fly a flag for such purposes, but in the interes...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

Can we outlaw any reference to Allah on public property? Seems like every time one of the nuts who happen to be Muslim kill a Christian, they scream that name. Due to their actions, it is a symbol of hate in my mind.

Re: I heard that some people got shot

But who's history. I've an inlaw that says rather smugly, The winners write the history. Whole lot of truth to that, but when we have the ability because of access to history, I believe it is incumbent on us to remember and pass on the facts. I would argue that the facts are the history, no matter ...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

Mike, I've said all along it should be up to the people of the state to determine what flags are flown at their Capitol. I've also always felt the battle flag was inappropriate. The battle flag would be better flown at actual battlefield monuments. If a state chooses to fly a confederate flag, along...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

Well, this tragic(an often over-used word but appropriate in this case) event opens ones eyes to the difficulty of living as an African-American in the south. Like it or not the Confederate flag is or has become a symbol of white pride down there. The black community has made it clear that this sym...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

What I find mind numbing is that the families of the victims have shown more grace, courage and true christian love in their response to the killer than I have ever seen displayed, yet all anyone wants to talk about is a flag. The victims and the courageous families are what people should be talkin...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

As to the OP, yes nine people were murdered in a church by a psychotic young man. It was an awful thing. There were many inspiring stories coming from the community before we all got sidetracked in debating things that had nothing to do with the tragedy. I apologize for my part in that mess. Prayers...

Re: I heard that some people got shot

If one wants to make that argument, they should be intellectually honest enough to admit the US flag represented slavery more than 20x longer. If this one was still up, I'd agree- http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/u/us-1865.gif http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/us-1865.html So by adding stars th...
