Default Goodness Gracious Bubba

Now Bubba Watson is taking the confederate flag off of the General Lee.....

Bubba Watson’s General Lee (also known as the Dodge Charger used by the Duke brothers in the 1980’s hit show The Dukes of Hazard) will no longer have a Confederate flag on top.

On Thursday, the two-time Masters champion tweeted his decision to paint over it with the American flag.

Yeah, and it is time to change his first name too. Bubba doesn't quite fit anymore.

Default Since George Washington was a slave owner...

We will have to rename Washington DC and all other likeness to this horrible man.
Like the Russians did during Stalins reign, we are on a path to erase History and heritage, all for " the good of the people"




What are some of your suggestions for the new name of DC?

I hope he is smart enough to decal over it and not repaint that car.

If there was ever an example of the confederate battle flag not being racist, it is the General Lee!!

Maybe he will rename the car " General Grant"

Sounds like it. He is putting the American flag in replacement. So yes, he could name it the General Grant.

One of the problems is that the offended aren't even embarrassed that they can't just get over it.

I'm all for taking down the battle flag. HOWEVER, I want Al Sharpton's racist ass off TV permanently. Period. No compromise. If Sharpton remains, keep the battle flag up. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Bubba Watson is an idiot. We're not talking about some old farm truck here that has a rebel flag painted on it, we're talking about the original General Lee. The value is in it being the original, in original condition. If he had half a brain, he would sell the car in it's original condition.....once he takes the flag off of it, the value will plummet. If he likes the car for the make/model itself, then he can take the money and buy another for alot less that doesn't derive it's value from being a movie car.

All this vitriol over a car that was in a third rate TV show from 30 years ago.

If you feel so strongly about the General Lee, you should offer to buy it from Bubba. In the meantime, since he owns it, he can do with it what he wants. Or doesn't all that freedom stuff you guys keep talking about extend to the owner of the car?

Yes, a car from a third rate TV show from 30 years ago that is worth a couple hundred thousand dollars. Sure he can do what he wants with it, I just said if he had 1/2 a brain he would sell it and take the money....
