    This may be a hot take, but flags without words are almost always better than flags with words.

    Additional fun fact about Nikki Haley, which I’m sure you already know - she sucks and is an awful person.

    Supposedly MS legislators are voting on it today. Suspending the rules so they can pass it or something along those lines. Could be a good day for us.

    Even more fun fact, lots of people in right wing circles think she’s the likely republican candidate in 2024.

    Our Gov Tate Reeves basically just said people dying of shit is not as hard as the flag issue. What a fucking ass


    “The legislature has been deadlocked for days as it considers a new state flag. The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it. If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it.

    We should not be under any illusion that a vote in the Capitol is the end of what must be done—the job before us is to bring the state together and I intend to work night and day to do it.

    It will be harder than recovering from tornadoes, harder than historic floods, harder than agency corruption, or prison riots or the coming hurricane season—even harder than battling the Coronavirus.

    For economic prosperity and for a better future for my kids and yours, we must find a way to come together. To heal our wounds, to forgive, to resolve that the page has been turned, to trust each other. With God’s help, we can.

    No matter where you are...
    I love you, Mississippi.”

    "Prison riots were more of a challenge than changing the state flag" is a great take though

    I’m not ready for a time when someone named “Nikki” is president.

    This just made me think of when I’m old and we have Aidens and Kaydens as elected officials. Ew

    Eh, as long as he votes to change, I don't care what his reasoning is. Yes, it'd be nice if he said "the confederate emblem on our state flag is inflammatory and represents hatred and oppression to a large swath of our state's populace." But that doesn't resonate with a lot of the rednecks.

    Steverson is from a backwoods district that voted overwhelmingly to keep the current flag in 2001. Him voting to change takes some guts.

    Yeah, he switched in 2015 because Republicans were one short of a supermajority after the 2015 elections. But conservative Democrats used to dominate the Mississippi legislature. That phenomenon began to die in the 21st century and now it's pretty much done for. There's maybe 3 or 4 blue dog Dems left.
