    By a complete nincompoop! I have NEVER met anyone with that misguided perspective.
    Sounds like something you'd hear on Faux News to stir up a nonexistent issue.

    It's a mystery to me, too. I wasn't aware that patriotism was now considered to be politically incorrect by anyone, regardless of political persuasion.

    We had a wonderful 4th of July yesterday. But at the same time, it is sad to see what is becoming of this country.

    Were they silent for the rest?

    Marlow, how about "Imagine" for our new national anthem. That wouldn't offend anybody, would it?
    "Imagine no religion too"
    Yeah, I think someone won't like that.

    Especially on govt property, such as the mall in DC? This might offend someone from Mexico or Saudi Arabia. How can we fly US flags for that matter? Or say the pledge? (I guess that's out now.) What's next?
    Bill, you're supposed to get drunk on New Year's Eve, not the 4th of July. Dial it back a bit, bro!

    When you think about it, the 4th of July is so politically incorrect, so insensitive. So is the Star Spangled Banner. We should just call ourselves "that country between Canada and Mexico."

    I remember back at the '96 OGs, many of the foreign media were upset because the American fans cheered for American athletes and had the gall to wave American flags. They were right. Never mind that Spanish fans cheered for Spanish athletes in '92, etc.
