What a country, huh? Where else can you take something good, declare it as bad, redesign it to be better and not bad and then invent something to reverse the good turning the bad back into something good that was bad and profit off of it? God bless America.
You know that your comparison of me to Gregory "Joey" Johnson is totally bogus and just your inflammatory way to personally attack me without really considering the point(s) I make and respond with an intelligent and articulate comment. From my previous posts here, anyone can tell that I respect our flag and what it stands for. I totally disagree with the association of our flag to other issues that Johnson made in his quote that you posted.
In a similar fashion, it would be if I compared you to and cited one of the many hateful proclamations made by Richard B. Spencer, the wife-abuser, American neo-Nazi and white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank. That would be an extreme over reaction and not fair to you, even if you may agree with some of his stated positions.
I really do think we all need to throttle back down the hateful comments. Yes, I have been guilty of writing some incendiary posts and will try not to make them personal towards other posters and focus on the point I am trying to make. It is hard not to take criticism personally, but I think that I and all of us should at least try to rise above making negative comments towards each other, ranging from snarky barbs, to petty insults to slanderous and hateful accusations, since they clearly are not productive and just makes things worse on both sides.
Also, we are all human with imperfections and histories of decisions and actions performed in the past that we now may regret or would have done differently. So there really never will be any candidate devoid of flaws or previous bad choices. Therefore, we all have to make do with whom we feel, moving forward, will have learned from their past successes and failures, and act and perform their duties in the best interest of our country. We all are free to make that challenging choice and decision ourselves, which of course includes taking a chance and/or leap of faith.
That is one of the reasons I am currently leaning towards supporting Joe Biden's candidacy. Yes, he has had some creepy moments with people and I do wish he could just come out and sincerely apologize for how he treated Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas hearings in the Senate. Yet, from the current ridiculously large crop of Democrat candidates who have migrated to the far-left, (way too far in my opinion), I think that Biden is the most moderate and acceptable of the bunch.
So is it really too much to ask for you and others to accept that there are many folks who really do not like Donald Trump and never have and are seeking a viable alternative candidate to vote for? You may not agree with us, but that is the beauty of our Constitutional system, 1st Amendment rights, that allows us all to express our different opinions. But ideally, to do so respectfully.
