It is the flag of people who enthusiastically attacked and killed American soldiers.

If they were brown skinned and had a different religion, we'd call them terrorists.

Confederate flag is nothing. Here in The 909, you're liable to see what I saw at the grocery store the other day: A gal with a saucer-sized Swastika tattooed in the tramp-stamp position.

Have to agree on low life racist maggots. But right or wrong the confederate flag means more to lot of southerners than a legacy of racism. I don't think it can be beat out of them but I hope you try!

Most of the men that did the dying on the Southern side never owned a slave, and yes, they're Americans too.

I agree racism is way wrong.


I would submit that I also have the right to store my #4-Camalot fists inside oral cavities as well.

Actually, one is considered free speech, and one is considered assault.

Pride of the underdogs. Understand that most who fought were not slave holders and were not fighting for plantations' rights. The subsequent 50 years of carpet bagging 'reconstruction' built a multi-generational antipathy. Racism crept back in with the 2nd ku klux klan. Racism is there now and somewhat prevalent. So too is it here in CA though its less overt here.

The Southeren Flag has nothing to do with Racsitism per say, it's not about slaves it's about Rebellion . standing up to what was perceived at the time as Ecomomic Slaverey of the South by the North. It's about Southeren Pride. . .

It was about the freedom to enslave others.

150 years after slavery was outlawed ,political interest groups are still ginning up and inflaming a new Civil War of sorts.

I've yet to hear a reasonable justification for "pride" in fighting for a portion of our nation that stood for such terrible practices.

The fact that Jim Crow laws and widespread segregation and discrimination existed in the 1940s did not prevent many brave soldiers , black and white and Latino and Asian, from fighting and dying for their country in WWII .

The whole ending slavery thing came up with Lincoln all after the wAr began. I don't care if you westerners don't get it. Those who did he fighting were not fighting to uphold slavery. They were fighting for their country and to this day many southerners take pride in that. Twist it any Y you wish. My experience is low brow people ENOY violence and threatening people.

I don't know about that. When I go back to southern Indiana, which is the South, not mid-west, I notice it's now much more integrated than what I see here in LA.

And slavery had a lot to do with the Civil War.

Check out footnote 1 to In re Brown,180 B.R. 325, 1995 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4871, (U.S.D.C. S.D. Ga. 1995)

[I added the boldface and italics in that footnote]

OPINION BY: B. AVANT EDENFIELD

OPINION


[*325] ORDER

The Browns filed this appeal from an order of Chief Judge Lamar Davis of the United States Bankruptcy Court. Appellees have filed a motion to dismiss, which the Court now grants.

Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 8007, the Record on Appeal was docketed with this Court on November 10, 1994, obligating Appellants to file their brief within fifteen days. Bankruptcy Rule 8009(a)(1). Appellants filed their brief on February 3, 1995, more than two months later. They missed the deadline. 1 Although the Court readily grants extensions [**2] of time if counsel is faced with a family emergency, here (a) Appellants' counsel never asked the Court for an extension [*326] in light of his father's illness, 2 and (b) that unfortunate occurrence cannot account for missing the deadline by nine weeks.

FOOTNOTES

1 The word "deadline" was coined by Union soldiers held at the Andersonville prison camp during the War of Northern Aggression. Confederate guards summarily executed any prisoner crossing a preordained line on the camp grounds; thus, the term "deadline." See McKinley Cantor, Andersonville (1955). While the Court does not contemplate as harsh a rejoinder to Appellants' counsel's crossing of this Court's preordained line, it will still be, well, "fatal" to his claim. See also Burns v. Savannah Airport Comm'n, CV 493-240 (S.D.Ga. Oct. 21, 1994) (making remarkably similar observations).

2 Counsel first asked for leave to file his brief on January 26, 1995, two months after it was due. The Court hopes it is not unduly troubling anyone by kindly requesting that motions for extensions of time be filed before the deadline for filing the materials in question.


[**3] Normally the Court would end here, but Appellants' response to Appellee's motion to dismiss requires the Court to pursue some necessary clarifications on the subject of inexcusable--as opposed to excusable--delay. FIRST: Blaming the United States Postal Service DOES NOT CREATE EXCUSABLE DELAY. SECOND: Blaming the lack of resources that plagues many sole practitioners DOES NOT CREATE EXCUSABLE DELAY. THIRD: Blaming the flu DOES NOT CREATE EXCUSABLE DELAY. FOURTH: Blaming the Court for "extended holiday breaks" DOES NOT CREATE EXCUSABLE DELAY. 3 FIFTH: Blaming clients for as of yet only paying "a small portion of the fees incurred in prosecuting this action" DOES NOT CREATE EXCUSABLE DELAY.

FOOTNOTES

3 The Court was closed for one weekday during the month of December, 1995: the day after Christmas.


The Court sincerely hopes that the above enumerations further guide members of the bar along the path of trouble-free litigation. Appellee's motion to dismiss this appeal [**4] is GRANTED.

SO ORDERED this 28th day of February, 1995.
