Re: O/T Stealing Flags!!

A couple years ago someone stole the flag from my work. We replaced it and a couple days later someone took the new one and replaced it with our original flag. At the time I thought it was kinda funny. I hate thieves, but at least this guy had found a creative way to get a nice new flag.

The flag stealing I hear about now makes me sick. Some cheese can't buy a flag so he decides "I'm so damn patriotic that I'll s#it on my fellow countrymen to show it if I have to!" F'd up and completely misguided. We seem to have a rash of brain housing group misalignments up in Berkely that I'd like to adjust with a BFH as well.

Re: O/T Stealing Flags!!

I feel the problem lies in that even if a person gets caught ( stealing flags, messing up your jeep) they get a slap on the wrist, if they are really bad they might get probation!!
I think if they got publicly whipped a couple times they would have more respect. Humans are just animals and sometimes the simplest punishment is most effective.

It will never be finished unless it burns up in the woods.

Re: O/T Stealing Flags!!

There are a whole bunch of flags out around my neighbourhood (hardly unique, I would imagine), and I thought to myself "I'm surprised that no-one steals them" (then again, I recently lived in a place where EVERYTHING that wasn't hidden or bolted down would be stolen). Almost immediately it occured to me!! THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN BE PATRIOTIC, AND STEAL!!!!!! What would they do with them?
Unfortunately, often those who steal worry more about getting caught than about the moral implications.
Stealing is just plain WRONG!

Either you are an American, and believe in all that this great nation was founded to protect, or you are not, and if you are not, GET THE F*%$# OUT!!!!!

No more hyphenated people, no more commienazistatistbastegas with "it's a living document" garbage. No more "interest groups" screwing people over to get things done their way, to the detriment of good people everywhere. No more lies and fuzzy-legality. No more sucking the country dry.
You are or you aren't, get with it, or get out! If you don't like how it should be, what's keeping you here?

My rant for tonight.
Disgusted by how things are!
