FLAG TAGS 

FLAG TAGS

The grand old flag of the grand old South is once again under fire in Tennessee. A house bill sponsored by Rep. Ulysses Jones (D-Memphis) and an identical Senate bill sponsored by Senator Roscoe Dixon (D-Memphis) have been introduced to the Tennessee General Assembly. The bills seek to ban all symbolic references to the Confederacy from license plates and would also keep the relatively new Sons of Confederate Veterans specialty license plate, which features the Confederate battle flag, from being renewed. Certain that this bill will stir up a whole mess of trouble, the Pesky Fly would like to suggest a noble compromise. Anyone who wishes to buy a specialty license plate featuring the Confederate battle flag should be allowed to exercise their First Amendment right to do so. Such tags should also be amended to include the word LOSER.
