I am proud to be an American!

Proud To Be An American Lee Greenwood would have been proud to see the car I saw the other day in Eureka. Back window tinted with a flag and eagles head, US flags on both side of the car, flag themed seat covers! Wow, this person really believes in America! Home of the red, white and blue! Let me salute you, the true American, driving the...the ...Japanese made Mazda? C'mon! At least buy a Toyota made in Fremont California. Back in the early 80's that car might have been stoned in our parking lot! Of course, I am a hypocrite sitting here typing on foreign made keyboard, looking at a foreign made monitor, with a foreign made computer, while watching a foreign made TV. Looking back to the 60's I am shocked at what we have become. Is it good or bad? We wanted things cheaper, faster and better. We have no one to blame but ourselves.

Like we had something to do with it. Between NAFTA and our relations with China after Tianamen Square we deserve what ever it is we get.
While your Japanese car may have been stoned at your workplace once upon a time today we all know if you want quality you buy Japanese made. If you want cheap you buy Chinese made. If you want to buy anything made in America,good luck.

It is the foreign countries way of slowly taking over America by making everthing we buy and buying up all the real estate China alone plans to buy 15 BILLION DOLLARS worth of real estate in 2008 in 2006 they only spent 6 BILLION what do you think they are doing. Between NAFTA and the proposed New World Government we are screwed. Wake up but probably to late.

Actually, I think you're just proud to have a China Buffet within 5 minutes driving distance.

"..Who really won WWII, anyway!?"

The Russians did.

I found American-made, high-quality, embroidered US flags at the gift shop at Woodley Island, if anyone is interested in waving something which wasn't made in China.

Well here at Puerta Samoa, or the Peninsula, (Fairhaven, Finntown, Samoa, Portugese Flats and Manila) with upwards of 2,000 residents, we do not even have a grocery store or a gas station. Lucky to have power sometimes. And it is cold out here!

Shane said...

You guys really need a Hooters on the Peninsula.

I'll bet there are lots of things stoned in your parking lot right now, but they are not cars.

We could really use the Marina Center so we can catch up with Mexico. I think if a Hooters was in the mix it could be a go!Good point Shane!

Too many tinted car windows and ornaments in the driver's line-of-sight can lead to accidents where other Good Patriotic Americans get hit by the Patriot's car and end up dead or mutilated.

Don't tint your windows! Wear sunglasses instead. It's cheaper, it's legal, and it's less likely to lead to accidents!

Now let's talk about American flags and how to display them according to the Flag Code.

Carson Park Ranger said...

The federal guidelines for the display of the flag have been ignored for so long, I doubt that they could be resurrected.

Goof-balls on Harleys use the flag as a doo-rag, some folks use it for curtains or automobile upholstery, and a local daily covers a portion of Old Glory with a letter in their masthead (not that they should be using it in their masthead at all).
