October 18, 2008 - John Stack

There seems to be more stupidity this year revolving around ...everything. My good friend (from the Moody Pond Maurauders pool team)came over today and told me his flag had been stolen...again! They even took the brackets! Who steals American flags? I have a real nice flag flying at my house (and I'm a Democrat Ann Coulter!) every day of the year. Its a nice 'Star Spangled Banner' flag, as its a replica of the 1812 flag Francis Scott Key saw when he wrote our National Anthem. If I caught someone trying to take it, I'd start to really think about exercising my 2nd Amendment rights!

But it just isn't the flag. There have been numerous letters to the editor recently about political signs being taken down, some being replaced by the opposite political party, but mostly just taken down. Once again, I find this also very unpatriotic, regardless if it was an Obama or McCain sign. I sold a my house earlier this year, and I must have bad Karma because the new owners have  aMcCain/Palin sign. And to think I gave them a break on th eprice! But, this doesn't make me dislike them, or want to take down the signs. I have a sister who used to live in South Carolina, and moved to Alabama. Both STRONG GOP states. She has has put out signs for democratic candidates in both states. She has had them taken down multiple times in both states. She's had her car 'keyed'. She's had people honk and 'give her the finger'. I don't believe this is endemic just to the Republican party. Where is there any civility in this? Where is there any honor? Anyone who makes these types of personal judgements on people just because of their political persuasion are not real Americans, not the America I love , and truly not any type of patriot.
