I'm sorry, Richard, but I can't let this one go by.
Terry, this bulletin board is a privately-owned enterprise
. Only governments
censor. As a long-time journalist I'm used to people not making the distinction.
Secondly, speaking as a veteran, let me say that one can discuss patriotism without making political cracks about people with whom one politically does not agree. "Patriotism" is respect and honor for one's country, not sneaking in cheap political cracks under the rubric of love of country. I guess if I want to criticize the current president, to you, that would be "unpatriotic."
And on top of all of it, this is a magic
discussion board. If you want to post stuff like that, may I suggest the Free Republic
web site, where your views will be welcomed with open arms. Here, they're just completely off-topic.That
is why your post was out of line, pal.
