Another flag flap

Peter Lynch served 8 years in the USAF and recieved and Honorable Discharge.
He enrolled in the University of New Mexico and one day while walking across campus he sees a Mexican flag flying over the campus. He talks to the Dean's office to at least have the American flag hoisted up first, no luck, talks to the ROTC office, again no luck. So he takes matters into his own hands. He takes the flag down and tears it up and walks away.
Long story short: He admitted to the act, got 6 months deferred sentencing, 18 mos probation from the State, 18 months probation from the school, had to make restitution for the flag, AND ATTEND ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES!!!!!

What really hit a nerve with me is how someone from the university commented on how bad it was to desecrate another nations flag. Funny how none of these enlightened institutions feel the same way concerning our flag.
Just one more reason I despise liberals / progressives. They have the spine of a wet noodle.

Hard for me to judge if they have a spine, until I figure out if there is anything they really believe in!

Funny, seems to me burning the American flag is freedom of speech, and then tearing up the mexican flag gets you 18 months probation?!?! Can you say a$$ backwards. This country is in trouble.

Its going to go one of two ways, it will either continue on the way it is; crime, unemplyment and family values will go down until someday this country is a complete cess pool, nearly a third world nation at which point Iran, Venezuala, and North Korea will decide its thier opportunity to take over, which shouldnt be too much trouble for them being that the liberals will have taken all our guns away from us........ Or Americans will get fed up with crime liberalism and stupidity in general and decide to take a stand for whats right.
