I work at a hospital. We have to detain patients sometimes (especially the kids) so law enforcement can come in to resolve the issue


Do you ask for party affiliation, gun ownership, and radio listening habits during this detention?



Also, isn't this a bit like saying "I work at a hospital...thus, i conclude that everyone is ill. i see sick people all day"

Democrats do not beat their wives.

True story.


*snicker*

And they don't get their news from Jon Stewart.

Ok. I'm sorry I hurt your feelings. The guy is just exercising his rights. He probably doesn't beat his wife, or have 50 guns, or watch Rush Limbaugh.

Honesty has to be absolutely dragged out of a liberal.

I'd sure hate for someone to say "I work in a penitentiary (or, with inner city intervention issues)...therefore, that black dude by the helicopter is a thug stealing the electronics from it"

have a neighbor that is currently flying his american flag upside down because he despises obama so much. this is a huge slap in the face to all our servicemen and women who are kicking arse so that we are NOT in distress.

That's REALLY dumb. Many people take flag protocol seriously, and basically he is crying wolf when there is no wolf. You should only fly the flag upside down when you NEED someone to literally come to your aid. It is NOT supposed to be used as some dumb-assed, cynical political statement.

I'd be knocking on his door every morning asking if he needs assistance until he remedied it.

no, it really is not


This. It has nothing to do with the military. It's a political statement and free speech. At least he's not burning a flag like the libs do.

Well, in your particular case, that statement would actually be accurate....

Each his own. To me, flying the flag upside down screams "I love America but it is in turmoil" while burning a flag, "frick America".

well that was quick shoppping.

I can see that. I see the former as "I love what our Country was, but it is changing in a way I disagree with." I see the latter as saying "I disagree with what our country is doing or representing, and I want it to change".

In both cases, the speaker cares enough about the country to make a dramatic statement about it.

Burn it, flip it, slap it up, and rub it down. His flag, his right.

Free Speech can be a beetch!

It's called free speech. You know, that thing called the first Amendment.

Meanwhile Obama wants to eliminate the Second Amendment then you will no longer have the First Amendment as well.

See how this works.
