And I never said patriotism is a bad thing, I said that its getting out of hand, and that its just SICKENING to see people wrap the flag around everything. What the hell is that supposed to mean? It's supposed to mean that contrary to how you may have prejudeged me I love this country, and I don't want fed BS like "Smith Steak Knives- the patriotic choice for BBQ everyware in this great land" I don't want to see flags being sold with the American pattern on the front, and Chrisler Motor company on the back. I don't want to see people put up those stupid little flags on thier cars just beacuse it's trendy. And most of all, I don't want to be trampled on for useing the most sacried of American rights-freedom of expression-just beacuse I choose to say "now wait a minute, arn't we getting a little pigheaded? Perhaps we should slow down and re-evaluate the situation before we get ahead of ourselvs."
