Which god decides right and wrong?
The god YOU believe in or… The different god someone else believes in?

Like with AvengerK….
You do NOT speak for others – let alone all?/most/or even some of straight America.

SLAPTHELEFT: “So money over principles”
You mean like Trump saying on Wed how he would possibly withold standing with our NATO allies if they were attacked by Russia unless they ‘paid up’ – ???

Ask the businesses around and impacted by (sporting) events like the playoffs or an All Star game if they are positively impacted by such events and then get back to us.

Git-R-Done: “Atheists already have a history of destroying civilizations”
I’m sure you can substantiate such a claim – yes?
[-3] July 22, 2016 at 8:51am
I am pretty sure you do NOT speak for most North Carolinians.
How about instead, you more accurately offer to speak just for yourself?

You have NO CLUE what the American flag represents / means to me – so stop making assumptions and making yourself look like an …
“you obviously don’t understand the ideals for what it stands for.”
And you know that how?
“Nor does it appear you appreciate the sacrifices our forefathers and so many others have made to build this nation.”
WHY does it appear that way to you?
What have I written that gives such an appearance to you?
“You live and enjoy the lifestyle you have because of them.”
I live and enjoy the lifestyle I have because of “them” AND because of MANY other reasons as well.

You too have said it.
It IS but a piece of cloth and it but REPRESENTS.
It is NOT a tangible life nor can it – a piece of cloth – ‘generate’ ANYTHING that is tangible like… life and liberty and freedom.

You are CLUELESS as to what I worship.
So let me give you at least a little insight.
It is NOT murdering babies.
[-7] July 21, 2016 at 1:29am
In NO WAY do I either ignore nor am I ignorant of the countless lives sacrificed for the TANGIBLE values and principles for which our nation’s flag is but a SYMBOL of.
[-7] July 21, 2016 at 1:26am
You said it.
The flag but REPRESENTS…
And as ‘failed’ as anyone who values a symbol / piece of cloth over actual lives… Any Muslim that values the WORDS in a book over actual lives… They too are utterly void of ‘character’.

Does waving the American flag give you freedom and liberty or does the American flag IN ANY WAY grant you ANY of the TANGIBLE values or principles that make America great?
[-7] July 21, 2016 at 1:19am
True American heroes have NOT died for that flag.
THey have and do fight / fought – and died for what that flag is but a SYMBOL of. A symbol of freedom and liberty and much more of the TANGIBLE values and principles that make America great.
You know next to nothing about these folks who are burning the flag so your claim that they leech off society is but a baseless guess.

Who are you saying is for abortion?

That is but your interpretation of such.
One man’s sin may be another man’s pleasure.

See my response to RJJ

They may not be the same…
They may not be the same to you…
But they are both examples – symbolic gesture example of some sort of… anger against some element of (or entire part) of our nation. In that way they are indeed very similar things.
[-1] July 20, 2016 at 10:56pm
That’s right RJJ – and it ‘cost’ me.
I displayed ignorance because I did not read the entire article – yet still commented on a post about it.
I did exactly what I have often railed against some others of doing – and again… It ‘cost’ me and here I am having to TRY and explain – appoligize for my self-induced – self-censoring ignorance.
Least it is not something I repeatedly do – like some others around here.
[-15] July 20, 2016 at 8:41pm
It’s but a SYMBOL!
People – GREAT American people – have and do fight and die for freedom. They do NOT fight for a SYMBOL of such.
Curious. Were you as angry against those (conservatives) who, a little while back, ‘desecrate’ the flag by hanging it upside down?
I’m guessing that symbolic gesture of anger against the govt is A-OK by you.
[-6] July 20, 2016 at 8:32pm
Sorry folks…. I did not read that far in the story.
I felt that just learning that someone who catches fire to themself while burning a flag is, well… All I need to learn about that person.
The fact that the person is (probably) part of a self proclaimed Revolutionary Communist Party is, well… But just piling on the stupidity.
