30. The flag represents treason.
They took up arms against the legitimate government after Lincoln was elected - an election in which the southern states participated.

Funny when you think of how many "Patriots" who love Bush fly that flag.

I will admit, though that the flag, purely from a design standpoint, looks pretty damn cool. I LOVED it when I was a kid...the Dukes of Hazzard premiered when I was 5. However, while I may occasionally watch a few minutes of the show if I happen upon it, that flag will not enter my home.

It's also good that people fly it - you know which neighborhoods, towns, etc. to avoid.
