    Speeding can be a danger to other drivers. I fail to see how a flag pole harms others.

    The story of how Col. Barfoot recieved his Medal of Honor.

    YouTube- The Story of Col. Van Barfoot
    Its nice to see that a little media attention exposing the homeowners association for being anti-American douches can change some minds. Personally I would never live somewhere where my neighbors can dictate what time I can and can't mow, what decorations I can use or some other nonsense.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I know many liberals, who have went to war and died for this country, and I know many liberals that would die for their country. And, I know many that display their patriotism on their sleeve as you do.

    I also know many conservatives who refused to go to war or to die for their country. I also know many conservatives who don't fly a flag, pray in a bible, etc.

    I also know liberals that are anti american, and I know conservative facist groups that are anti american.

    The thing about all this is that many veterans don't mind either way because they put on the uniform and protect this country, so liberals and conservative can have these beliefs. When me and mine choose to serve, we did not care what either group felt.

    Pidegon hole charactures are made by those who refuse to see past their own beliefs.

    Can you explain to us what part of contractual agreement you are unable to comprehend? If you agree to the terms on a contract, do you think you should be allowed to renege on legally binding documents because you have a tear-jerk sympathy card?

    Yeah, I agree. This topic is older than my great grand parents now.

    Can't we all just move on?
