Vangor: Whatever. He is upset about the election and is not hurting the flag at all. Plus, he served for many years. He is entitled to this though I disagree with his position and his expression.
buttery_shame_cave: freedom of speech, how does it farking work?
Nightsweat: buttery_shame_cave: freedom of speech, how does it farking work?Both ways. HE complains with the upside down flag and his neighbors get to call him an ass.
Pants full of macaroni!!: Can you even tell if a Confederate flag is flying upside down?
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Why are people shiatting their parents over the election? Obama has done a decent job so far, what's all the panic about another term?
SirDigbyChickenCaesar: It is not disrespectful to fly the flag in this manner.
GranoblasticMan: Why'd you post the French flag?
AverageAmericanGuy: Nightsweat: AverageAmericanGuy: This country is in trouble. It's been in trouble for over a decade now.The Mexican drug war is banging on our front gates and seems ready to spill into the southern states.LA TImes had an article that there was an expectation that the vote legalizing pot in two states last Tuesday would cut billions off the Mexican cartels profits since suppliers would probably turn to semi-legal pot from the States rather than risk crossing the border. They thought it could cut billions off the cartels' bottom line.There are a couple problems with that. First being that marijuana is still illegal at the Federal level, so there isn't any legal interstate commerce allowing it to be imported from WA or CO. Second, the users aren't only living in WA and CO. The number of users living outside those two states far outnumber those two. Third, even if the supply from WA and CO were sufficient to fulfill the demand throughout the country, the very fact that the producers were legal and subject to licensing means that they would be loath to jump back into the gray zone by distributing across state lines.Now, there might be smuggling to bring American-grown pot to the rest of the states, but now we're talking about competing with the Mexican drug cartels for marketshare, and if the past decade has shown us anything it's that they take competition very seriously.I just don't see the problem of Mexican drugs going away or even being mitigated in states that don't have decriminalization.
Stone Meadow: Holocaust Agnostic: Stone Meadow: DrPainMD: As if the country would be in any less distress if Romney had won. There's not a dime's worth of difference between the two.There is in whom each would pick for the Supreme Court, which is where much of a president's real legacy is made.One would appoint right leaning moderates. The other would appoint right leaning moderates. Oh God the horror.Are you always this self delusional?
