A young man went a to a bar in Valley Falls New York, drunk as a skunk and was refused service due to an ID problem. The young man then left the bar and went outside where the United State flag was flying high and mighty. This same flag was actually a flag that was used in Iraq and bestowed to the owner of the bar by it former bearers. This young, poor and Candy Ass man, proceeded to lower the flag and burn it. Big mistake. The bar full of veterans caught him and was SERVED.
The young man was given three choices of punishment. The first, get turned over to the police, who probably wouldn't have done a damn thing because the system caters to derelict pieces of shit like the flag burner. The second more likely result was to go one-on-one in a fight with a seasoned war veteran who would have treated this kid not only as a flag burner but a candy ass politician who has screwed our country. Last but not least, the option of being duct-taped to a flagpole for six hours with a sign around his neck identifying his alleged crime of flag burning. Which would you have chosen?
It was the third option that would still have the small town buzzing a week after a 21-year-old was hunted down and forced to endure a public humiliation with its roots dating to the Middle Ages. Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1938 were incensed enough to tie up the man last Sunday after they accused him of setting the flag in front of their building on fire. The practice of restraint used by these veterans was amazinging considering they were former trained killers.
Post Commander Nick Normile, a Vietnam War veteran, said the man came into the post's bar Sept. 18 on Poplar Avenue and was eventually turned away for not having a proper ID. Normally, the Patriot Act would have had him locked up but since he committed an offense against a veterans group, nothing was to be done to him. Apparently angered, the young man, who Normile did not want to name, cut the rope of the American flag flying overhead and used a cigarette lighter to set it on fire, Normile and others said. The man sat pilloried as the village had its fall youth soccer picnic with a long parade of children passing in front of him. This equaled LULZ and humiliations galore. I'm sure the ACLU will follow suit if they can find enough time to quit searching for their own balls.
"He'll never disrespect the flag again, I can tell you that," Normile said. Normile said the flag had at one point flown over U.S. troops in Iraq had special significance. Veterans, both local and nationwide, responded to the event as accounting were posted online to the official VFW Facebook page and national Web site. Comments posted supported the act and added ideas for further punishment. This was truly a great day for people who practice self reliance and no governing authority was need. I guess we could also govern our own lives without government too! hahaha its guy code. fo sho
