    Unfortunately, this seems to be a minority opinion.

    The article in today's Washington Post indicated that the guy thought what he had done was legal. His attorney reported this. Since when is ignorance of the law a valid excuse?

    The sacrifices of our military have given the left the right to bash our military. Yet, they get highly agitated if any of us conservatives dare to mention Obama's name and label him as a communist. I'm sure I will be asked what his name has to do with this thread. Well, I ask the lefty, who broached the subject, what child molesting has to do with one of America's greatest heroes?

    Come on, people, what the hell has happened to America when your neighbors can control the color you paint your house, your gardening choices, and your basketball backboard, let alone you flag pole!
    I never thought I'd be agreeing with Scarecrow on anything but this is spot on.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    how can a flagpole with a flag on it be aesthetically unpleasant, unless its a really stupid flag, which it wasn't

    What they didn't like was some 21-foot flagpole sticking out like a sore thumb.
