The biggest un-American thing is this thread is people not wanting others to have the freedom of speech.
So PT, if someone related to you were gunned down, and the killer got away with it, and displayed it on their vehicle allll the time, and you ran across it, you wouldn't feel enough anger to want to do them or teir vehicle any harm?
That's a murderer proclaiming his victory, and rubbing it in your face... which isn't even on the same fucking plane as stating an idea or opinion. Like was stated above, you wouldn't bash the windows out of one of these P.O.S. Chevy Silverados because it had Calvin pissing on the blue oval, and it's no different. The opinion doesn't hurt anyone, so just GTFO it. This is ESPECIALLY ironic because everyone on here jumps to throw the word "liberal" around, and say all they do is whine. Y'all are the only ones whining in this thread.
"Waaaa, they have a bumper sticker on their car, Waaaa, I don't agree with it, I woulda kicked their ass...."
The second-most un-patriotic thing is this thread is NOT questioning your government.
"A decent and manly examination of the acts of the Government should not only be tolerated, but encouraged."
"To question your government is the most patriotic thing you can do."
-These are both quotes from, you guessed it, Presidents.
Here are a few more, just in case you're open-minded enough to listen to what REAL patriots have to say. The end question is do you want to associate yourself with these patriots, or "patriots" such as John Ashcroft, Cheney, Bush? I already know where history will place them.

Be informed, don't just believe blindly, or because John Ashcroft says so
