Not sure what the point or objective of your post was other than an emotional release.
As for the symbols....
well, like I said, I leave symbols to the symbol minded.
They in NO WAY mean ANYTHING to me.
If you need that to mean
that I hate AmerrrCa and that I hate freedom then go for it bro.
I understand that it is hard for most people to realize that symbols are only molecules formed together in such a way as to trigger and emotional
This works well on people like you.
and that is OK.
Some people NEED symbols.
It makes them FEEL good.
If I like the NY Yankees and identify with them, and I want them to win..... then If I go out and buy and wear their Jersey then I am PROVING that I
am a fan. I need everyone to know how I feel about the Yakees so I wear their jersey and FEEL proud.
Furthermore, If you DON'T wear their jersey and watch the games as often as
I do then you don't like them as much as I do.
Makes sense right?
To most people it does.......until you spell it out in such simple terms.
I call it the
"well, when you say it like that" syndrome.
Symbols are fine.
They are for a certain type of people.
They aren't hurting me per se'.
I just don't understand the love affair some people have with them.
It seem to give you something to identify with.
I suppose I just hate my country.
If I were low on Toilet paper I wouldn't think twice about using the flag.
and I would still die for my country......just not my government.
I don't expect this to make sense to you or most people reading this,
If you are one of the few who get it then congratulations.
You aren't symbol minded.
