So Karen "I don't believe in a living wage" Handel won Georgia's 6th district special election. An expensive race for the Repubs, Paul Ryan also backed the Congressional Leadership Fund for her. I'm not surprised she won, it's a really red district and the Dems have problems and keep failing at winning right now.

My expectations for 2018 are low at the moment.

I saw a documentary a week or so ago describing how the US are once again arming/re-training Al Qaeda in Afghanastan...
their main objective to secure the world's biggest Lithium deposits...
the US needs to re think this policy with this article from MSN:

I don't get the problem with the rebel flag at all.
This is the south. We are rebels just like the north are yankees.
Really got nothing to do with being prejudice.
I'm sure not prejudice but I don't mind being called a rebel.

People down here say yankees are the ones who come and go.
If they stay, they are damn yankees  Smile
In Wilmington we have more yankees here than we do rebels.
They are moving down here.
Our next door neighbor had a tag on the front of their car which read damn yankee.

Because the flag is seen as a symbol of oppression by a lot of people.

Yeah I know they do but I don't  see it as that. We are southerners and that was and is our flag
as the yankees have theirs.
They should blame the ones who caused trouble not the flag. Just seems silly to me.
America has done some bad things under certain Presidents. If that
is the case, we should do away with the American flag.
No matter what they say the flag is ours and they can't take it away.

Too many people have died, in countries all over the world, because of allegiance to a stupid piece of cloth.

What amazes me is after all this time the south and the north can still not get along.
It's like the Hatfields and Mcoys.
Guess for some reason it is in the blood.
I'm sure some in the north have caused problems too.
If we are to take away the confederate flag, take them both away.
Again, it is just a symbol of confederate states.
Nothing more to me.

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

It's the confederate flag. I don't support what the Confederacy stood for. Symbols can be powerful things, IMO.
