At first I was like "You didn't fight for the flag, you fought for the nation of laws for which it stands."

And then I read that he could've flown the flag, if he just got a building permit for the pole.  And I was all like "FARK THAT!  I hate idiots making you get permits for every stupid thing."

And then I was like "But if that pole isn't properly built, it could just snap in a strong wind and kill someone or ruin someone's house.  And I guess that should probably require a permit."

But then I remembered we were talking about the flag, SO I GOT OUTRAGED!

You should always be allowed to put a large something identifying your career choice on your house.

For me, I have a giant 30' whiteboard that I draw detailed project plans on so joggers can see the synergies that I propose.

YoOjo: As for design, how about a football player kicking a nuclear bomb into the middle-east with SPEAK AMERICAN OR DIE written across the top?

It's a sucky looking old-fashioned flag anyways, surely with all these hipster designers we've been breeding we could come up with a better looking one now?

I'd like something that shows the world what we really stand for, and how incredibly superior we are to every other nation, and frankly using the same color scheme as those low-life French doesn't cut it.

For a start, bigger. We're a big country with big people, maybe the world's biggest. So we need a bigger flag. I'm thinking 4ft by 8ft at it's smallest (lapel pin).

For colors I prefer the MIA flag or skull & crossbones. They just looks badass and send the right message abroad.

IRQ12: When I was an airman in the navy, our scout leader made us lemon pledge to the TABLE every day before we woke up and when we went to bed.  We  dried and infused and some of us lived to let that big piece of hickory smoked bacon sag in stagnant air.  If this sailor wants to fly a chicken breast, he should have to get a declaration of independence from the US.  It is his love as someone who has B*Y^)GYed and put lotion on his back for his chicken breast to sail it!

trey101: fark YOU, get the fark out of this country you shiatbag.


I know, I know.  It's a sensitive topic.

But to me, having a mohawk is just a selfish act and not fitting for a selfless servant of his country like the fine fighting man in the article.  When you have a mohawk, you are effectively preventing anyone who spends any amount of time with you in public places from having that rocking, 'look how much of a f*ck I don't give" hairstyle.  Because everyone knows that two people with mohawks cannot hang out together in public.  It simply isn't done.  By wearing his hair thusly, he either denies others the unmitigated pleasure of his company, or forecloses their ability to wear their hair in the widely accepted fashion that denotes true individuality.

kendelrio: When I was a soldier in the core, our drill sergeants made us pledge allegiance to the FLAG every night before we went to bed and when we woke up. We sweated and bled and some of us died to let that little peace of canvas flutter in the wind. If this marine want's to fly his flag, he shouldn't have to get no stupid permit. It is his write as someone who has blked and DIED for his flag to fly it!

/Stupid civilians!
/sniper


kendelrio: bled.


Really? I thought that "blked" was the best part of that post. Yes, you had the "core," the apostrophe misuse, bad grammar, misspelling and that lovely bit of utter illogic at the end to hit all of the major troll categories in rapid succession, but out of it all it was that bizarre mystery word at the end that had the most potential to completely derail a thread while everyone tries to figure out what it is supposed to mean.

Something like this?

/Dude, get the permit.

"It's disgusting that anybody should have to go through that. I fought for the flag, now I'm paying for the flag," said Schaffer.

This phrase is quite possibly the apex of human stupidity.
