I am commenting on the republican symbol not a flag, I never saw a flag.

Also check out www.woot.com
I am pretty sure I posted this site last year. They have daily and weekly specials.$5 shipping for your whole order. Once they are sold out of an item or the deadline has ended, that's it. Every once in a while they'll run hourly specials.
Thanks!

Hopefully he won't kill anyone else before he gets put away.

What does he live on, anyway- how does he earn a living?

More to the point, why would anyone go out with him?

Scarlet/J-

I have a question for you that I am sure your boys could answer in a second.

They are demolishing the house across the street and digging a foundation for the new place. The device used is a big Caterpillar with a hinged arm.It has tank tracks not tires. I grew up with Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel. That is pretty much what it looks like.

What is it called?

I don't like the flag that has the Republican elephant with three stars in place of the 50 stars. To me, that is even more disrespectful than changing the colors because it implies that the citizens who are not Republican are not represented by the American flag and what is stands for. It is divisive, the opposite of what our flag should be. Very poor taste, IMO.

That we (as a country) are giving this a-hole way too much attention.

As a flag, no not a desecration because the 50 stars are not present.
BUT...
If it was the only flag on a pole, then yes it would be, because you would be using it as a representation of the American flag
OR
If all 50 stars where present and the elephant was still in the design.

Obviously I was using the wrong term.
Whats it called when you create a pagan image of the US flag to tell everyone your something else besides a patriotic American, and then fly that flag in lieu of the real flag as if it was the real flag?

Actually that "mere" $9000 bond is about twice the average bond down here for domestic abuse cases.

Well, the judge gave him a mere $9000 bond.

The flag was not desecrated, but altering the layout of the flag in such a way is disrespectful, IMO.

Oh, no, no, no! So sorry. That was NOT directed at you. It was directed at Edog and I should have put it in a separate post. I think I got into the subject too much and forgot who I was replying to.
Honestly, that was NOT directed at you. You have not said anything to warrant that to be directed at you at all. I agree.
Fair enough...thank you.

He's no saint but the media did charge him guilty before the trial started.
I watched the trial and prosecution did not meet their burden.
I think his incidents aren't all fully explained (media, ugh) and his wife seems to have ill will towards him now.
Honestly, he should pack his gun and leave FL.

Because some people believe if you're having your head bashed in, you have the right to defend your life.

"Killing someone" and "self defense" bring vastly different connotatons.

Edog - that was vile. You want to disagree with people, go ahead. To throw around slurs and hate speech like that is disgusting and ignorant.

Topix took his post down. Maybe they will also give him a well deserved time-out as well. If he is going to behave like a child, he should be treated like one.
