  1. https://www.legion.org/documents/legion/pdf/flagcode_07.pdf There is a code pertaining to treatment of the flag, originally written in 1923. It is a code of conduct, not a law. These three parts are interesting. “(c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free. (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general. (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.” Ever seen a bunch of people waving a flag horizontally at a football game? Ever seen an American flag shirt or swimsuit? Ever seen an American flag on a Budweiser can? Why no outrage over these violations of this code? I think we all know the answer and it that answer lies the problem.
  2. Fair enough, I didn’t spend a lot of time at drive-ins in my youth. I worked at Fun-n-games park next to the I-290 drive-in summer of 1970, the showed Woodstock all summer. I pretty much had that movie memorized, “don’t take the brown acid”. This I understand, but that isn’t what they are doing.
  3. Why not just stay home and watch a movie? I’m guessing the picture on my television is better than a screen a couple of hundred feet away. Although the sound system in my car is pretty good, the one in my home is better. I can pause the movie if I need to use facilities, I’m certain facilities are nicer in my house. I can also order any kind of food online. I don’t get it.
  4. Or he just cut someone off, or didn’t signal. As I’ve said seen a lot of bad driving and never considered calling 911.
  5. I’m not blaming the caller, but who does that? Maybe you do things like that, but I’ve seen some bad driving and as I said never thought of calling 911. You do understand hat 911 is for real emergencies.
  6. I was at the bar standing about ten feet away when Jimmy punched Musburger. It was a Sunday night after their show.
  7. Granted this was dumb, but at 23 I had long list of dumb things. I’m as concerned as everyone else, but this needs to play out. I have a question that immediately came to mind. Has anyone on this thread ever called 911 on someone driving erratically? I’ve lived in NYC, LA and now South FL, which has the worst drivers and never considered calling 911.
  8. I spent so many years being frustrated because there was no way for me to watch Bills games, or dropping cash at a bar to watch, I don’t care what they charge.
  9. Not to mention that their experience flying on a private jet is significantly better than flying commercial..
  10. I had no idea that Johnson with the Bills as a player.
  11. I can’t remember exactly, but it was something to the effect that he told everyone that EJ would not be a successful QB in the NFL.
