    I'm just messing around.
    Don't think I have any flag regalia in my house anyway.

    Well, at least it was just a sign, and not spray paint on the bus itself.

    I am still not sure why there is any justification to saying "Congress did it". As has been evidenced by forum opinion and national opinion, congress is not a paradigm of absolute right or moral behavior.

    Damn - they're not.

    Well ****, there goes the jam out of my donut. I was relying on their behavior as a compass of my ethical behavior . . . guess I need to head to confession and purify my soul

    LOL. To be fair, I wasn't implying that everybody was idolizing Congress...but the argument has been used in this thread.
