    Maybe if he doesn't want to display the Ms flag he should get out of office. Well since he was voted in a Ms office and new the flag before running.

    Why? it is repeating itself most will get to live it first hand! We all have our strong and weak points. History was never one of my strong points.

    Me neither also. I hated history in school but now I wish I had paid more attention. Same with world geography, but Flight Sim, Google Earth, and maps have done wonders for that.

    I knew we were screwed when they took All In The Family off the air and left Sanford and Son on.

    We need to remove Bennie at whatever cost, he only has his seat due to
    gerrymandering by a federal judge to ensure a minority only set aside, he
    couldn't get elected dogcatcher on his own merits if it snowed in August in
    south Texas.

    Well, that ain't gonna happen:

    The blacks like it because they get a black Representative from Mississippi. That was the whole reason for the gerrymandering. (After Mississippi lost population several years back, we lost a Representative and the state had to redistrict. They drew the Mississippi Delta into a black majority district---but a white guy was elected. So they moved the lines to take Canton into the Second District and give something like an 80% black voter population. And that guarantees a black will represent the Second District forever.)

    The other 3 white Representatives LOVE it because it took most of the black voters out of their districts.

    The folks who end up sucking wind are us white folks in the Second District.

    Here is the map. How much do you think Oktibbeha Couunty has in common with Wilkinson County?

    What no one is saying is that ALL state flags are being removed and replaced with coins or some other BS. MS needs to mint some coins with the state or Confederate Battle Flag on them.

    Even when we thought they cared what we thought, they didn't care.

    I have no doubt that there are at least some FedGov officials who would love to get rid of elected State Governor's & legislators, as well as State symbols such as flags, and appoint Governor's, etc. Elected State officials are such a pain in the butt when you're trying to transform the entire country. ;)
