Son, that's just silly. You just told me you're willing to die for a symbol. Not the idea that symbol represents, but the symbol itself. That's simply absurd.

I will call him as I see fit, and will never put his title before his name, as IMHO, he has NOT earned the title. He will always be a hussein to me, if you want to support him, thats your right.

Your rights and freedoms aren't in question. The symbolism I'm talking about is your belief that bending your knee to obey a law enforcement officer is somehow infringing your rights. You told us that you would choose death rather than tolerate someone infringing on that symbol.

I like violence...I know it never proves who is right ....but it does shut the mouths of fools ...at least for a while in my experience.
You're seriously going to argue about American values and then tell us that you use violence to shut people up?

I don't want you to shut up. Please, speak your mind. Give a kid enough rope and he'll hang himself.

American values...you mean the ones where we killed the Indians and stole their land?

Their is nothing symbolic about bowing or bending of the knee to another man...it is out right submission.
