Well spoken, Doyle. I have been out of town, and just went through all these posts of the last few days. By and large, you can all be proud of the civility and common sense expressed. I would only add that we need to be careful not to stereotype any group. We must see individuals and their actions, as we would wish to be seen. Thinking back to the 1920s, when the KKK was a national organization, they few the US flag exclusively. Should we not fly it because of them? When the CBF was used incorrectly in the 50s and 60s, we did not protest enough, and have to fight harder now to restore the meaning of the CBF. I was on active duty from 1956 to 1967, so missed part of that time.
BTW, Cinco de Mayo celebrates an unexpected victory by Mexico over the Spanish, during their revolution, in the 1820s, if I remember correctly. The Spanish later won another battle, but Cinco de Mayo became a symbol of courage and accomplishment under harsh conditions. I think we can all get behind that. The illegals, as many as there are, represent only a small percenatge of Mexican citizens. my sister in law is from Puerto Rico, and I have known many black and hispanic people it would do to ride the river with.
Chief Upton, why don't you send Senator Biden a picture of Delaware's Confederate Memorial? LOL Stan
