How do you like living in the 80s? Because if that is all you think drives Texas’ economy, you must be in the 80s. We have chemicals, music, film, high tech, medical, agro, helium, cotton, cars, aircraft parts, etc… Texas’ economy is not the one trick pony of the 80s, which is basically why the Saudi driven oil glut is not hurting us as much you liberals would like. Wells can be capped and left idle, then reopened once the price point demand is there.
Oil is still the only thing keeping Texas afloat.
Without the oil industry, Texas as a whole would be Detroit in 5 years.

So here’s the thing, how do you dispose of a defiled flag? You burn it. I can think of few things more defiling than these liberal pukes even breathing on the flag, let alone touching or handling it. Let them burn it, so it can be retired out of their hands with the dignity it deserves.
How about NO! I much prefer how my fellow vets and bikers handled it. Some times it is OK to stand up for what is right.
It's a little more complicated, and a lot more respectful, than "you burn it."
1. The flag should be folded in its customary manner.
2. It is important that the fire be fairly large and of sufficient intensity to ensure complete burning of the flag.
3. Place the flag on the fire.
4. The individual(s) can come to attention, salute the flag, recite the Pledge of Allegiance and have a brief period of silent reflection.
5. After the flag is completely consumed, the fire should then be safely extinguished and the ashes buried.
6. Please make sure you are conforming to local/state fire codes or ordinances.
guy : That would make one powerful tee shirt. Of course , you might get killed wearing it !

(b) The court shall award a reasonable attorney’s fee to be paid to the prevailing party in equal amounts by the losing party and the losing party’s attorney; however, the losing party’s attorney is not personally responsible if he or she has acted in good faith, based on the representations of his or her client. If the losing party is incarcerated for the crime or attempted crime and has insufficient assets to cover payment of the costs of the action and the award of fees pursuant to this paragraph, the party shall, as determined by the court, be required to pay by deduction from any payments the prisoner receives while incarcerated.
(c) If the losing party is incarcerated for the crime or attempted crime, the court shall issue a written order containing its findings and ruling pursuant to paragraphs (a) and (b) and shall direct that a certified copy be forwarded to the appropriate correctional institution or facility.

Boy that looks like a triple layer of bronzer in that video.
The simpler solution would be to spell the two words correctly by adding the last G, problem solved.

Umm when you send you kid to a school called Gaia Democratic, what do you expect. Gaia the Earthmother, and mother of the titans in Greek mythology, and Democratic, which is basically the unprotected minority being subjected to the tyranny of the majority.

Anything can be used as a weapon when in the right hands; pens, pencils, boots, belts, even a carryon cag can be used as a weapon. If this story is true, this is just a flight attendant, no let’s get insulting here, a stewardess, that was just flexing what little power she has in life, the power to be a jack ass at another person’s expense.
missed the story much? The piece of crap muslim is lying.If I was the flight attendant I would have shaken the can and opened it in her face. Bottom line muslims suck! My wife is a flight attendant and has to deal with whining assholes all the time . I know I could not do this job with a smile on my face, I'd end up kickin people like you off the plane.

Former Army as well, but this was Fleet Week, which is kind of a big deal for the Navy in promoting the Navy to the community at large. Also, I bet there were functions in the duty stations you were at, where officers and senior enlisted went off-post to attend in their Class As or Dress Blues.

Speaking as an agnostic, why is it these “lawyers”, people supposedly learned in the law, always fail to continue to finish the First Amendment clause, “…or the free exercise thereof…” I bet most of his dealings are just like mine, in electronic currency, and I see no mention of God on my bank card, anywhere. I do not feel I am overly burdened by sometimes having to exchange printed cloth on metal discs embossed with In God We Trust for the trinkets and baubles I buy.
