I loved it Al, so sad he is not with us any more.

I saw a photo on the news of one of the Trump support protests and the 'gentleman' concerned was SITTING on the flag, on the grass. It wasn't a towel but a real flag. Over here you will hear everyone GASP in shock, from the young to the old, if any part of the flag even touches the ground. As Robbin said, it is about what it represents with regard to those who have fought under the flag. We have a flag that is still representative of the Commonwealth and England, and many attempts have been made to make it more Aussie, but the public outcry about changing it, is overwhelming. It is a sacred symbol to us of those that went before, from WW1 to current times.

Thanks Al, ImageI'd forgotten how well done his flag routine was. Favorite movie Good Morning Vietnam. Never heard Adrian Cronauer's show while there but it was well done and really accurate depicting how anal commanders could be

as a veteran, who proudly served and fought in a war, avoiding service, sitting on the flag, or even burning it doesn't bother me nearly as much as the anger, hatred and vitriol spreading through our country today in the name of politics that hurts. I find myself asking why I and my friends sacrificed so much for these people

well at the risk of ron kicking me off i have to say this robo....its not even the difference in politics or parties that concern me anymore about my favorite neighbors...its gone beyond that..its now about humanity. empathy...concern...and keeping fascism out and all parties irrespective of blue or red or green or white should be concerned about that.....remember "lest we forget?" have they forgotten already?



So yes i hear ya robo...patriotism is not about politics......and im concerned its disappearing..

Ok ron i'll take my lumps lol..

The only people whose opinion I don't regard as worth listening to are those who think others who disagree with them or is different in any way is necessarily evil and should be targeted for ridicule and/or violence.

Humanity should be considered an orchestra with people of different races, beliefs, talents, and strengths. It needs the 3rd violinist as much as the bassoonist and 1st trumpet.
