On this day we show reverence to the Flag that represents our freedom, an email forwarded from a friend inspired me to comment:
By "Walt Turske"

YES, I'M A BAD AMERICAN

I Am the Liberal-Progressive's Worst Nightmare.
I am an American.
I am a Master Mason and believe in God.
I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and believe in American products.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican!
I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!
I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.
I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!
I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you should do it in English.
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to. 

My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G. Davidson, who makes the awesome Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

I don't hate the rich.. I don't pity the poor. 
I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.
I've never owned a slave, or was a slave. I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you! So, shut up already.
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!
This is AMERICA ..We like it the way it is!
If you were born here and don't like it you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.
I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse 
Jacksonpreaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution.
Can I get an AMEN on that one? 

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.
And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license.
I think it's good.... And I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money. 

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot 
works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.
I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause.....Get a Job and do your part!
I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two 
parents..
I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.
I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA! 

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.
We want our country back!

WE NEED GOD BACK 
IN OUR COUNTRY!! 
WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, 
ONLY BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE!
My Response:

I would call myself a liberal progressive, but I like this guy.
I went to Church yesterday...
I like Harleys & drive a Jeep (American but made in Canada)
I pay as little in taxes as the law allows but understand the need for police, fire & other services, roads, Social Security, Medicare, etc.
Did somebody add that feelings part as a joke?
I don't own a gun & probably never will, but I don't think the government has the right or ability to ban them. I don't judge people on whether or not they own a gun.
People should respect all minorities. You never know when you may become one.
I like Big Macs. I usually order & receive them in English even though I speak Spanish.
The "pray to God" part is surprisingly liberal. What if someone chooses not to pray?

Officer John McLane from Die Hard liked Roy Rogers too. Babe Ruth? How old is this guy?
I don't hate the rich. I want to join them! I don't pity the poor either, but I've helped out with Food Share & donated to Salvation Army. 
I know wrestling is fake. That's why I've loved it for over 20 years & watch every week!
I've never owned or advocated owning slavery or state's rights or whatever you call it. I must have missed the news about the Turks.
If you don't like the way things are here, we have these things called elections. That's what makes it possible for all of us to live together.
Why do I always hear people say, "America: Love it or leave it!" Then they say, "We like America the way it is." Then they say, "We don't like where the country is heading." Then they call people names who don't agree with them.
I've always felt Jesse Jackson was one of the good guys. Did you see him read Green Eggs & Ham on SNL?

Can I get an AMEN on that?

I think cops should pull people over too. I also think we should pay taxes to support their jobs.
Is there a problem with faces on driver's licenses? How else do they know it's you?
In money we trust?

Elections materials lobby - Who decides those contracts? Can't we text our votes to 27722?
People standing on the corners is the ultimate form of capitalism! Those are entrepeneurs out there! There is something uniquely American about someone starting his or her own business - Even if it's panhandling or street vending. If you want them all to get jobs, I label you a Communist!
Yes the ideal family has 2 parents, but it's not always the case with controversial topics like divorce, birth control, abortion, gay marriage, etc. Sometimes the kids are there & you have to do something with them before they end up in prison. Not all parents are perfect & nobody lives forever.
Illegal means illegal. Illegal doesn't mean Mexican. Illegal immigrants pay taxes when they work under false social security numbers. They don't get tax refunds. People who complain the most about illegal immigration are usually least affected by it. People don't come here to live off the system. If that was the case, they'd go to Canada. They come here for work.
What about the flag of the California Republic? What about all those Lakers Flags? What about something called freedom? Happy flag day!

Does this make me a bad American? Am I not a Real American? Hmmm
I think this guy has more of his country than he thinks he does. What's plan B, divide the country among liberals & conservatives? If I can agree with 90% or whatever that this alleged guy says, can't we all just get along?
