    Humans love our symbolism, sports fans know that better than most.
    If the Charleston tragedy turns out to be a catalyst in the removal of a divisive symbol of our past, it will result in a silver lining around an otherwise dark cloud.
    Corporations distancing themselves from the flag may seem like empty symbolism, but their actions will help to relegate a divisive symbol further into the recesses of history where it belongs.

    In an attempt to limit the number of consenting adults that could marry the person they love, religious groups across the nation turned to state government to enact countless regulations, laws and constitutional amendments.
    The USSC recently struck down all that government red tape and regulation which violated individual liberty.
    We now have less government interference in the matter of marriage, not more.
    Bottom Line:  Call it what it is, Marriage Deregulation.
    Churches may marry whoever they want, people may marry whom ever they want.
    Sounds a lot like less government not more.
    Deregulation is great!

    Agree or disagree with where Sen B. Sanders stands on the issues...
    Bernie is the closest thing the United States has to a honest politician these days, possibly ever.

    Just the good ol' boys,
    Never meanin' no harm,
    Beats all you've ever saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was born.
    Straight'nin' the curve,
    Flat'nin' the hills.
    Someday the mountain might get 'em, but the law never will.
    Makin' their way,
    The only way they know how,
    That's just a little bit more than TVLAND will allow.

    The sad reality is some rich men with conflicting regional approaches to getting richer and more powerful couldn't resolve their differences after decades of trying to control one another politically.
    Were there soldiers involved with this war who viewed themselves as participating in some noble cause? 
    Without a doubt there were.
    How else would you ever get hundreds of thousands of young men to sacrifice their lives?
    It is a given that both sides had God on their side.  One side attempted to preserve their way of life, the other to preserve the union.
    However, most men from the North were not about to risk their lives to free the South's slaves.

    North Carolina was essentially a border state that found itself too far South to remain neutral.

    Here are the actual words of the architects of Southern secession.

    Southern States Declaration of Causes for Secession:

    Here is part of South Carolina's
    Here is why SC chose to secede when they did...
    Mississippi gets to the point:
    Louisiana:
     
    Alabama: 
    Texas:
    Good sense will not permit us to defend the institution of slavery anymore. However, in the mid 1800s, many people not only thought slavery was practical and justifiable, they believed it was superior to hiring labor and paying them "slave wages".
    There is a lot of good stuff in the above link if you have time to read it.
    Here is what one Richmond newspaper thought of Southern diplomats attempting to "deceive foreign statesmen" with political correctness:
     
    TLDR:  The Civil War was primarily about maintaining and expanding slavery and the election of Lincoln was the last straw for those who led the South.

    If his play on the court is any indication, Mason will not go down without a fight.

    Hoping for the best Anthony!

    ^^^This is the obvious answer.^^^

    The biggest corruptor of these kids are wealthy alumni who want their favorite team to win at any cost. Academics are a distraction to their ultimate goal... bragging rights. Alumni put pressure on the school coaches, administrators and influential politicians to make sure their school is focused on winning a sports championship.
