  •   1       THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  -­‐  A  Fool’s  Paradise  Re-­‐Visited  Twice?     Here  we  go  again  without  even  getting  into  the  lunacy  of  the  new  money  making   scheme  a  certain  individual  has  in  regards  to  attaching  his  likeness  with  of  all  things   the  Confederate  Flag,  let's  examine  what  it  represents.  Know  matter  what  anyone   thinks  or  says  in  regards  to  an  individual  that's  a  part  of  an  industry  that's  driven  by   greed,  racism,  money  and  the  continuance  of  blood  being  syphoned  from  the  veins   of  impressionable  youth.  Let  us  not  forget  one  important  fact  here  the  Confederate   Flag  is  still  a  symbol  of  the  genocide  which  ravage  the  Southern  portion  of  the   United  States  and  still  remains  a  relevant  symbol  who  revere  for  the  old  days  again.     It  for  second  shouldn't  be  confused  at  all  &  for  those  would  continue  to  associate  an   individuals  dependency  for  attention,  money  and  a  willingness  to  use  an  entire   generation  youth  as  genie  pigs  in  this  desperate  ploy  isn't  only  sad  it's  heartless.   Marketing  has  turned  this  country  all  over  again  in  a  direction  of  slavery  but  it's   more  mental  these  days.  Because  they'll  be  a  generation  of  children  and  even  adults   who  will  argue  his  being  a  positive  voice.  Even  commend  the  journey  and  attempt  to   bring  this  to  light  but  they've  never  ever  been  subjected  to  what  many  still  face   when  it  comes  down  to  what  the  flag  represents  and  the  memory  of  it.     Years  ago  in  1999  I  move  to  Virginia  from  Brooklyn  New  York  and  made  a  wrong   turn  on  my  way  home  from  work.  Northern  Virginia  is  a  Commonwealth  and  many   proudly  fly  there  flags  without  reservation  what  so  ever  in  front  of  homes  and   businesses.  I  unsuspectingly  stop  at  a  residence  that  was  quite  beautiful  with  a  nice   white  fence  surrounding  the  entire  perimeter  and  a  few  horses  it  was  a  majestic   sight.  And  I  coming  from  the  east  very  rarely  say  it  &  decided  to  stop  for  directions   and  as  I  pulled  up  closer  I  notice  a  man  pointing  a  shotgun  directly  at  me.  Mind  you   it  was  about  4PM  broad  day  light  immediately  I  verbally  said  to  the  man  "whoa,  I  am   lost"  he  immediately  pointed  at  his  flag  and  said  "you'll  not  only  be  lost  you'll  be   dead  if  you  don't  turn  your  @@@@@@  @ss  around  off  of  my  property".  And  as  I   drove  through  this  neighborhood  off  of  route  28  I  believe  in  the  town  of  Manassas  I   notice  every  single  residence  had  the  same  flag.  Sure  I  know  my  history  well  and   heard  stories  but  had  never  experience  it  for  my  self  until  that  day.  
  •   2     Where  this  self  contained  materialistic  idealistically  driven  young  man  is  heading   and  potentially  trying  to  influence  millions  to  go  will  be  not  only  dangerous.  But   they'll  one  day  due  to  this  idiotically  construed  persons  self  absorbance  will  be  the   reason  people  will  die.  Parents  if  you  have  a  child  don't  allow  your  child  to  entertain   this  in  particularly  during  these  times,  racism  and  bigotry  is  no  longer  what  our   parents  and  grandparents  and  ancestors  have  been  through,  it  has  a  different  face   now.  And  the  faces  are  in  places  that  will  shock  and  appall  you  &  in  most  cases  these   same  young  supposed  businessmen  and  women  (industries  luminary)  have  already   made  contractual  agreements  with  the  devil.  I've  attach  a  little  information  below   about  the  Confederate  Flag  not  to  promote  anything  or  make  anyones  job  easy.  But   because  information  needs  to  accompany  anything  that's  asserted  and  what  I've   mention  in  these  paragraphs  aren't  scenarios  or  fables  they're  facts.  Having  talent   gives  absolutely  no  individual  the  right  to  assume  more  death  will  inspire  anything   positive,  the  only  it  will  inspire  is  death.  And  sadly  I  am  sure  someone  might  find  it   necessary  to  contest  or  debate  what  a  proven...let  me  repeat  proven  egomaniacs   motives  are  aren't  bottom  line  only  inspired  by  money.  It's  only  about  money  that's   all  it's  about  and  sadly  every  racist  individual  who  lives  an  honor  this  symbol  will   having  the  biggest  smiles  going  if  these  images  once  again  become  transparent  in   our  everyday  living.     Confederate  Flag/Southern  States:   The  Southern  United  States—commonly  referred  to  as  the  American  South,  Dixie,  or   simply  the  South—is  an  area  comprising  the  southeastern  and  south-­‐central  United   States.  The  region  is  known  for  its  culture  and  history,  having  developed  its  own   customs,  musical  styles  and  varied  cuisines  that  have  helped  distinguish  it  in  some   ways  from  the  rest  of  the  United  States.  The  Southern  ethnic  heritage  is  diverse  and   includes  strong  European  (mostly  English,  Scotch-­‐Irish  and  Scottish),  African,  and   some  Native  American  components.  Several  Southern  states  (Virginia,  North   Carolina,  South  Carolina,  and  Georgia)  were  English  Colonies  that  sent  delegates  to   sign  the  Declaration  of  Independence  and  then  fought  against  the  English  along  with   the  Northern  Colonists  during  the  Revolutionary  War.  The  basis  for  much  Southern   culture  derives  from  the  pride  in  these  states  being  among  the  13  original  colonies   (and  much  of  the  population  of  the  South  had  fore-­‐fathers  who  emigrated  west  from   these  colonies).  Manners  and  customs  reflect  the  early  population  of  the  South's   relationship  with  England  as  well  as  that  of  Africa  and  to  some  extent  the  native   populations.  Some  other  aspects  of  the  historical  and  cultural  development  of  the   South  have  been  influenced  by  an  early  support  for  the  doctrine  of  states'  rights,  the   institution  of  slave  labor  on  plantations  in  the  Lower  South;  the  presence  of  a  large   proportion  of  African  Americans  in  the  population;  and  the  legacy  of  the  Civil  War   and  Reconstruction  Era,  as  seen  in  thousands  of  lynchings  (mostly  from  1880  to   1930),  the  segregated  system  of  separate  schools  and  public  facilities  known  as  "Jim   Crow",  that  lasted  until  the  1960s,  and  the  widespread  use  of  poll  taxes  and  other   methods  to  frequently  deny  blacks  of  the  right  to  vote  or  hold  office  until  the  1960s.    
  •   3   The  display  of  the  Confederate  flag  is  a  highly  controversial  topic.  It  was  largely   absent  during  the  Civil  War,  Rather,  the  Confederate  flag  was  reintroduced  in  1956,   just  two  years  after  the  Supreme  Court  decision  Brown  v  Board  of  Education.  It  was   considered  by  many  to  be  a  protest  against  school  desegregation.  It  was  raised  at   the  University  of  Mississippi  (Ole  Miss)  during  protests  against  integration  of   schools.  Supporters  of  the  flag  view  it  as  a  symbol  of  southern  heritage  and  the   independence  of  the  distinct  cultural  tradition  of  the  South  from  the  North.  Some   groups  use  the  Southern  Cross  as  one  of  the  symbols  associated  with  their   organizations,  including  groups  such  as  the  Ku  Klux  Klan.  For  some,  the  flag   represents  only  a  past  era  of  southern  sovereignty.  Some  historical  societies  such  as   the  Sons  of  Confederate  Veterans  and  the  United  Daughters  of  the  Confederacy  also   use  the  flag  as  part  of  their  symbols.  Some  rockabilly  fans  hold  the  Confederate  flag   as  their  emblem  as  well.  As  a  result  of  these  varying  perceptions,  there  have  been  a   number  of  political  controversies  surrounding  the  use  of  the  Confederate  flag  in   Southern  state  flags,  at  sporting  events,  at  Southern  universities,  and  on  public   buildings.  According  to  Civil  War  historian  and  native  Southerner  Shelby  Foote,  the   flag  traditionally  represented  the  South's  resistance  to  Northern  political   dominance;  it  became  racially  charged  during  the  Civil  Rights  Movement  of  the   1950s  and  1960s,  when  fighting  against  desegregation  suddenly  became  the  focal   point  of  that  resistance.[citation  needed]  Symbols  of  the  Confederacy  remain  a   contentious  issue  across  the  United  States  and  their  civic  placement  has  been   debated  vigorously  in  many  Southern  state  legislatures  since  the  1990s.[citation   needed]  Supporters  have  labeled  attempts  to  display  the  flag  as  an  exercise  of  free   speech  in  response  to  bans  in  some  schools  and  universities,  but  have  not  always   been  successful  in  court  when  attempting  to  use  this  justification.     A  fool’s  paradise  re-­‐visited  twice?       Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL   The  Way  Humanity  Expects  Everyone  to  Live
