Good job... I'm with you on this one. This is a typical reaction of "Super Patriot" as coined in my earlier post.
These are the type of individuals who snob homeless, wheel chair bound Vets on a New York street corner. Then, patriotically come home and snug up to a cozy fire wapped in the American flag --- I've seen it with my own eyes

I've been following this thread for some time and giving a response a bit of thought.
Level X I've known Seagull his entire life and through his posts I've gotten to jso. I can speak to Seagull's character he is not a mindless individual nor has he ever been a racist. Yes, jso and Seagull are white males; so what. Seems to me that you are the one with the racist or should I more accurately say the one inclined to judge based on gender and skin tone then those two fine gentlemen. Remember; when you point a finger at some one else look down; how many are pointing right back at you?

purports to represent?????? Tell that to the millions of Americans throughout history that gave their life to defend a hill where that flag stood. Tell that to the millions of Americans who fought bravely under that flag. To some people, like myself, the flag is not a piece of cloth and I am offended that others feel that way. The flag represents the freedom of all Americans. Freedoms that were given to you simply because you were born here (or moved here legally and became citizens). These freedoms were afforded to you because people felt an obligation to defend and in some cases attack an enemy to gaurantee those freedoms. If you are an American you do a dis-service to your fellow Americans fighting around the world to protect your freedoms at home. If you are not an American, I understand your disdain for us. Please do not refer to my flag as a simple peice of cloth...........
