Michael, Do we purposely post or openly discuss things that are offensive or hurtful to you, openly criticize you, your family, or the Liberal, Progressive policies and the idiocy associated with those beliefs and policies? That flag, by the way, is a battle flag, even warriors have respect for one another after the battle is over. Nations pause to bury the dead and return the remains of the deceased. When Robert E.

We hate bloodshed; we are opposed to violence. Yet we go into spasms of joy over the possibility of projecting dynamite bombs from flying machines upon helpless citizens.
