    So, basically, no need to get excited. This could still take decades. :p
    According to your dumb ass. Like Gator says, the flag will greet those Yankees, and from Gator's perspective, Florida has enough of those suckers.

    These Yankees would be surprised to see how fast a project like this can raise $30,000.

    This reminds me of a short conversation I had in the local grocery store the other day. I'm picking up some charcoal and I'm wearing my Dixie Outfitter's T shirt. I hear this voice behind me, with an obvious Yankee accent, "The South will rise again, huh?" I told him, "Yeah, and the first thing we're gonna do is round up all these transplanted Yankees." We had a good laugh and he walked away.

    Before the smartasses start piling on, no one jumped out of the bushes and no one was converted to my beliefs. Just a funny little one liner, IMO.

    That group meets at Buddy Freddies Restaurant in Brandon on the first Thursday of each month. I have seen them a couple of times over the last few years.

    Maybe this next Thursday I will drop by and give them a little cash donation.

    Anything to piss off the Yankees and honor our brave Confederate veterans is a good thing.

    That flag pisses off a lot of Yankees. Let's be honest about it.

    Trivia question.

    How many slave ships did that flag fly over?

    How many USN vessels does the other fly over today?

    Unfortunately, a lot of bad actors have co-opted the Stars and Bars in order to perpetuate their agendas. When then-governor Ernest (Fritz) Hollings raised the Confederate battle flag over the South Carolina statehouse, he meant it as a gesture of defiance against federally enforced integration. It's also prominent at KKK websites and among those of other suprecist groups. Liberals exploit this, since it dovetails nicely with their narrative of a racist nation, using it as a shorthand for perceived southern racism. Like the swastika, which started out as a Hindu holy symbol, and became the graphic representation of the Nazi Party, the Confederate battle flag has been abused by Dixiecratic segregationists and liberals, and its original meaning has been lost in the fog of PC identity politics.

    Luckily the southern boys give us a lot to giggle about...even when they don't mean to. ;)
