Haha, are you serious? In what way did he 'save it' from the storm? By picking it up and stuffing it in his pocket? And this made the news?

Only in America

I surely hope you are not an American
cuz if you are then it's views like yours
that is destroying this great nation.

Luckily for you I am not American.

I just don't see how a homeless man picking the American flag off the ground is newsworthy. Slow news day, eh?

Really?


I've never understood American patriotism and this post has led me to believe I never will.

Never really like burritos. Can you bring some tacos. There's a joke by Kat Williams who said all it takes is some corona and a front yard for Spanish people to party all day.

Nationalist propaganda at it's best.

Dr.Goebbels did a short film once about a man whose house was being bombed , and his first instinct was to save a portrait of Hitler. - " Out of all his luxury , family pictures , etc , this patriotic man saved the face of our leader , it has touched our hearts"

Hail American Flag! , Hail Patriotism!

sorry to say it but
Corona's have been boycotted
due to illegal immigration law
boycotts.

oh, btw, tacos have been boycotted also

burritos also, I should have thought about that
before I offered to bring them.

You know you'll miss the tacos. No Mexicans, no Tacos or many other famous foods from Mexico.

maybe it was a gesture of love for america and ALL(melting pot right?) the people she represents around the world and it was the most he could do, like lyrics to a song both at least lift a finger right? all good things originate with a thought if I'm not mistaken, what if he revealed a thought and said Americans I ain't got crap but I still care and don't blame you but hope you are saved

ya see that's another problem with foreigners
and illegal immigrants, neither of them understand
American Patriotism. Nor what American symbolism means.
Just like the following pic. I'll bet not a single foreigner or
illegal immigrant can tell me what this pic is about.
Yet it made news headlines in just about every American
newspaper and has been the theme of many hollywood
movies.

1. - Illegal Immigrants who take the "Become-an-American"test out-score the average American (One of the questions is about that picture )

2. That picture is Nationalist Propaganda , it was staged ( maybe you are the one that knows nothing)
