In reference to the Broussard flag cutting incident, I have known Jim for over 30 years, I agree his actions of cutting the flags down was redneck style. But allow me to clear up this veteran part of his story. Jim didn’t serve out his hitch in the seventies, he was released early for reasons he knows. As a Vietnam veteran,I find it less than amusing for him to be referred to as an army vet. He is an Army vet only in the loosest sense of the phrase, he washed out of the service to his country in a year or less. The news services had a field day with this story, but as usual, some of the facts were muddled. I’ve seen some reports that call Jim a Viet Nam vet, why Jim hasn’t taken the time to correct this Veteran farce is what is pisssin’ me off.
This story is almost 7 years old now.
Not sure if anyone pointed it out, as I'm not going to read 10 pages of people arguing that "it's only a flag".
I imagine that you are a proud member of the NRA....so you of all people should know how irrelevant your size or ability to hand to hand combat is...any 18 year old cheerleader could take you out with her daddy's 2nd amendment toy...can't have it both ways my friend is what I'm saying.....don't brag about your size and strength when a 2oz piece of lead can make that moot....
and dying for a piece of cloth is retarded by the way...
How often do people apologize for their ignorance in a thread? I apologize! This story is 7 years old!!!
I didn't bother to look up anything myself...I just responded to this stuff as if it was going on right now...I was right and the owner didn't know what he was doing was wrong...he thought he was expressing his first amendment right...more than 10 pages talking about this? and I was a part of it!? really makes me feel foolish......(hey moderator...shhhh..just between you and me...could you remove all my posts on this thread...even if you have to make it a T&C violation...in fact it should be a violation because I was too stupid and lazy to have vetted this thread in the first place...I have some cred. I would like to keep.)
Sorry it being you're property don't mean Jack.
Good luck putting me in the hospital. Lol...
What a jerk. I don't care what any proper "etiquette" is for flags being flown, if I had flags of multiple countries and wanted to string 'em up, I'd do it alphabetically top to bottom because I'm OCD like that. If that blowhard had touched mine, I'd have put him in the hospital for destruction of MY property. And sent him the bill to pay for new ones.
And I and many others like me would put you in the bed next to him. If you were lucky enough to JUST go to the hospital, and not to a more permanent resting place.

What is wrong with me is that I'm sick and freakin tired of people jumping a fence and invading MY country, then telling me that I have to acquiesce to THEIR demands.
