  1. Nowhere does the Constitution say it must be...

    Nowhere does the Constitution say it must be defined but it does define it by saying "President Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States...
  2. Intimidation is not protected speech. But is that...

    Intimidation is not protected speech. But is that what you think the flag represents? Everybody does not live their lives over past events their relatives might have experienced--they have gone on to...
  3. No, that is why they are called "former."

    No, that is why they are called "former."
  4. You seem to think a symbol has the same context...

    You seem to think a symbol has the same context and meaning for everybody. As I explained in an earlier post is has not such meaning for many people. Just as the peace symbol is not connected to...
  5. So the U. S. flag represented slavery until the...

    So the U. S. flag represented slavery until the 13th Amendment? And the former Confederate states also ended slavery, so their flag must now represent the abolition of slavery--using your logic.
  6. Lack of reading comprehension on your part. I...

    Lack of reading comprehension on your part. I argued that a Confederate flag should certainly be part of a Civil War museum, I said nothing about that being the only place it could be displayed. That...
  7. Sure, it represents the states that wanted to...

    Sure, it represents the states that wanted to secede to keep the status quo of slavery (and related issues).

    As CFM claimed the U. S. flag represented a Constitution that allowed slavery to be...
  8. It's "proper context" is BS. People can choose...

    It's "proper context" is BS. People can choose whatever context they want to display any flag or symbol without your approval. Nobody has to pretend it is about heritage or anything else. It can...
  9. Only to those who seek to impose their religious,...

    Only to those who seek to impose their religious, political, or moral views on others.



    Stupid example. A naked breast is not the type of free expression protected by the 1st Amendment...
  10. Only to those who seek to impose their religious,...

    Only to those who seek to impose their religious, political, or moral views on others.



    Stupid example. A naked breast is not the type of free expression protected by the 1st Amendment...
  11. Are you intimidated by any flag or symbol? I'm...

    Are you intimidated by any flag or symbol? I'm not and neither are most Americans. A 2015 Roper poll found 57% of American adults said the Confederate flag represented Southern pride, 33% said it...
  12. It doesn't matter what the effect is of...

    It doesn't matter what the effect is of displaying anything outside a museum. We are free to make that decision unless the fascist PC police try to take it away.

    If the Union flag simply...
  13. And the House believed those two acts met the...

    And the House believed those two acts met the standard of high crimes and misdemeanors and reading the Constitution tells me they have the sole power to make that determination.

    It matters little...
  14. It is not a false authority, it is exactly what...

    It is not a false authority, it is exactly what the House passed and they are the authority. The first article charges him with abuse of power for pressuring Ukraine to assist him in his re-election...
  15. Bothsiderists were both for and against slavery? ...

    Bothsiderists were both for and against slavery?

    You are obviously not right since we are still free to display any flag and any symbol we choose. It is a scary thought if we ever start...
  16. Then we agree. The Confederate flag belongs in a...

    Then we agree. The Confederate flag belongs in a museum as part of the history of our country and slavery.

    Whether someone chooses to display that flag outside of that museum is their business and...
  17. Only if you can't understand it and have to keep...

    Only if you can't understand it and have to keep reading it over and over. There should be no problem in understanding the House impeachment articles.
  18. I disagree (although Obama favored a lower COLA)...

    I disagree (although Obama favored a lower COLA) because it would actually lower people's benefits.

    Instead, they can eliminate parts of the program that were not part of the original program and...
  19. But the answer to the question about what Trump's...

    But the answer to the question about what Trump's impeachable offenses consist of (in the opinion of the House)
  20. They did not change the Constitution. They...

    They did not change the Constitution. They decided it was an impeachable offense and you disagree--but it is not your decision to make. The Constitution gives them sole authority to impeach which...
  21. All you have to do is read the articles of...

    All you have to do is read the articles of impeachment to explain what part is impeachable. You aren't really too dumb to understand, you just disagree.
  22. The FBI was spying on Russian agents in NYC in...

    The FBI was spying on Russian agents in NYC in 2014 who had contact with Page and considered recruiting him but considered him a "dimwit."
  23. I agree, my point was that members of the two...

    I agree, my point was that members of the two parties change their views on that topic based on what their side is saying at the moment.

    Democrats who agree with your view now disagreed in the...
  24. It is impeachable because the House already voted...

    It is impeachable because the House already voted to impeach. That makes it an impeachable act by definition. It is their decision to make.
  25. The meaning of high crimes and misdemeanors...

    The meaning of high crimes and misdemeanors changes based on whether it is their party's candidate being impeached.

    In 1998 Republicans (Graham) said it did not have to be an actual crime but now...
