The Flag

Postby Aujouret » Sun Oct 06, 2002 11:23 am

This topic isn't Paul or even music related.
Sorry.
I was thinking that everytime I see the USA flag I think of 9/11.
I was asking my coworkers if they are having a similar reaction.
Does anyone here have this reaction too?

Sure do, Auj. It's understandable that you don't I guess, Thomas, since you're not an American.

Don't be sorry about it not being Paul or music related, Aujouret. That's what NPC is for. And I agree with you and Ram1. Every time I see the flag now, I think of 9/11, and I feel a mix of sorrow and patriotism. Great topic and post, Aujouret. The only thing bad about this topic is that I can see SOME of our close-minded and ignorant friends overseas making some stupid comments about America like they have in the past. I can just feel it....

I agree with you that it might happen, dude. But you're probably just starting the trouble yourself with that post.

I can assure you though that I won't be one of the people doing so (and I hope noone does). There's enough bad feeling in the world these days as it is.

People should respect the flag, the country, and the great number of men and women who died for freedom. The flag represents a lot more than just fabric. That's why i wanna puke when i see people in Iraq or France burning the flag.

I also get upset when i see Bono use the flag to be sown onto his lame ass jacket or see other European groups who use the flag as a means to "get over" on a US crowd. The flag is not a tee-shirt, jacket, or a fashion accessory ...To see it that way or as a blouse for Christina Aguilera or Britney Spears - makes me want to vomit. Unfortunately, it's people like Bono and Sting who were trying to rip Reagan and democratic ideals in their music not too long ago (Bullet the Blue Sky, etc). Hypocrites like that are no friends of our country. That's why i dig Neil Young, Macca, or Billy Joel. They're not a bunch of bandwagon jumpers.

I've got some American friends. I've been twice to your country (NY and Seattle) and I love it, (I liked Canada more but that's personal). I have also some patriotism and I'm proud to be dutch. I also have some comments about the way things are arranged in the US and there are some things I don't understand and disagree with (they have nothing to do with 9/11) but hey, nobody's perfect right?

I don't think this is the place or the topic to critisize each other about their homecountry

respect to you all,
