"attitude and focus" are not often among them. Sometimes for sure, but not often. "Sacred" per Websters: That which is respected; venerable. Not understanding that the flag, anthem, and Constitution clearly qualify as sacred is one of your more minor points of confusion. Among your more serious issues is a consistent expression of self righteousness and assumed moral superiority. This weakens your message Sir Amadeus. It's much like Trump who occasionally says something directionally correct and then completely mitigates it with inane twits.

My "attitude" is one of respect for symbols that represent our rights and freedoms. My "focus" is one of desiring the most effective venue to express what I believe are serious issues.

    Sacred? The anthem isn't sacred. Nor is the flag. Nor the Constitution. That's entirely the wrong attitude and focus. Our rights and freedoms. Now those , good Sir Robert, those are sacred. Amadeus

          is the steroidal drug of choice of weakness and evil. Unity is the antidote. When the weakness you reference surfaces, and we agree that it has, it's critical to prescribe the correct medication.... more

   no medicine. It's an intoxicant. The ideal and idea behind the establishment clause is certainly not obsolete. The language of the establishment clause is, however, archaic. Better to hold the... more

                  "continue suffering....swept under the rug"--- hasn't been said on here and not even by our clueless President. Looks like, feels like, smells like..........uh..........straw.

                    No, those words weren't used. The sentiment, however, is loud and clear. Amadeus
