OK, Now I'm convinced. Flying the Confederate battle flag is a practice that needs to go. It needed to go prior to the church mass murder and is a practice that will continue to need to go. Probably for decades to come. Maybe centuries. Foolish Southerners!
I quote: According to one study, SC receives 5.38 times as much money as it pays in. That is, for every dollar paid out of the state, the heirs of those who fired on Ft. Sumter receive more than five dollars from the Federal owner/operators of Ft. Sumter. In this shining example of self-sufficiency, rugged individualism, and independence from those d**n Yankees, Federal subsidies make up almost a full third of state revenue.
