    Another Activist Judge ignores the flag code, BTW did I mention that he was appointed by George W. Bush, and allows the nut jobs from "God Hates Fags.Com" to trample the flag at military funerals...

    The Supreme Court Fight looks more and more interesting in the fall... can see they have the right to protest, it is that first amendment thing, but to trample on the flag.. that seems a tad beyond...

    All the people that have died for that flag ... unreal.

    Makes my blood boil - if people hadn't died for that flag they wouldn't have the freedom to deface it.

    There will be no supreme court fight. These azzholes have every right under the law to be doing what they're doing. I don't like it, in fact I hate it. I hate that they disrupt funerals and trample the flag, even though I think funerals are wierd and unnecessarily morose and I fly my American flag proudly on my property. Without azzholes like these wierdos, how would we know who decent people are?

    A more historically grounded take on the roots of your sentiment. It was ... sentimental, though.

    FYI Strudel...we have a rule that forbids any of us to change someone's direct quote as you did to IcyPat. In the future, quote the poster directly and then make your idiotic changes in your own post.

    You made it appear IcyPat wrote something he did not, and that wrong and a violation of our rules brother.

    When people fight for our great nation, they are the ones who determine why they are fighting, not our government. Many of us have family who either fought or died in WWII. And if in their minds, they fought to defend our nation and our freedom, THAT is why died.

    Grow up!

    BTW....Most Americans love and want capitalism. What do you want?

    Don't we have a rule about calling names? Mods! Mods!

    Edit: :rofl:, just because.

    Er, so you're a fan of Newspeak? That is so cute. And of course, as it pertains to reality, that is certainly not what they fought for. It is just sad that they bought the public excuse. Terrorism? Oh brother. Communism? Oh, Lord. Empire? You betcha.

    Maybe all the silly little knobs who bought the transparent lines are the ones who should grow up? Then they'll stop killing people for baloney justifications. Yup.

    Except when they realize that it results in fewer jobs, not more. Among other things. :ugh:

    What I'd LOVE to see is people from the Westboro group get trampled! I'm sure most Americans would agree. There would be no sorrow at their funerals.

    I don't like them either, but I don't think they deserve to die.

    How exactly is the Constitution being destroyed here?

    Another case of the Constitution being something the right doesn't like so much b/c you don't like the outcome, huh, harry?

    ---------------------

    These folks are repugnant, and I think their treatment of the flag is simply more evidence of that, not that any more evidence was needed. But they have the right to do this, and imo they should have that right.

    Citizens' ability to treat the flag this way is more important than the piece of cloth itself. Rights > things. And regardless of how they treat the particular flag, the symbolism of the U.S. flag remains untouched by anything they could do -- and that's what our soldiers have actually fought for.

    No country has fully instituted Democratic Socialism, but you see traces of it to varying extents all over Europe and some in Latin America. And nice try at smearing the idea by associating it with Greece when Greece's problems were its debt. There is nothing in Democratic Socialism that says it requires a country to go into any debt. :ugh:

    And how and why did they get into that debt?

    I made a very nice post on the REAL reasons why Greece is failing here...

    "Summer here is sacrosanct, a time when Greeks exercise their inalienable right to lazy lunches of tomato salad and deep-fried smelt. For a month or two, most people decamp to an island or their ancestral village, escaping the enervating responsibilities of everyday life — a ritual enjoyed by everyone from janitors and factory workers to ship owners and government ministers. The nation simply shuts down in July and August.

    In September, Greeks are supposed to return to work and the national economy is supposed to rumble to life. Nobody, however, knows whether the engine really works in the jalopy that is Greece’s economy. Will Greece begin a slow slide into destitution this fall? Or, more dramatically, will the country explode? Labor unions already have staged a few small but paralyzing strikes this summer, shutting down the ports, cutting off the supply of gasoline for private cars. These actions are but previews of the main event expected in the fall, when vacations are over and the government starts dismantling the gravy train that has funded the Greek way of life these past three decades."

    By borrowing too much. Notice that Norway has almost zero debt. Stop being disingenuous, PR.
