Local man making a 'statement'
Every morning I usually get on our local news papers website and browse the local articles and notices. Earlier this week I seen an article 'Berlin man uses upside down American flag to express political views'. Of course I read the article and I understand him 'exercising his right' but is this man so dense that he is flying a national symbol that irreplaceable lives have been lost for the sake of our flag.
"He said he believes the people who are complaining are "sitting around waiting for a government check."
This has to be one of my biggest pet peeves. I swear whenever a 'educated' person is making their assessments on our country, our direction that one of the first cards they pull is 'government checks, SSI, ect'. It is one of their strongest and loudest rants that I see people running their gums about all the time.
At my younger age I just do not understand how some people and be so thick skulled. His statement is a embarrassment.
Thank you to all our service men/women past, present and future. Our nation may not support our forgien affairs, but the support for our military and their familys should NEVER vary.
Sorry for my rant.. just had to get it out.
