    I see your point. Spies really hasn't done anything to warrant fans or accolades of any kind.

    By the way, this pudding is delicious.

    Ben is the coolest cat going right now...he is the Mac Daddy yo.

    The flag thing is cool too, because the flag/colors are displayed in a positive manner. And not like this...

    From my experience, people that have served view the flag in much higher regard than civilians. They have seen fellow soldiers die to protect what it stands for. They treat it with kid gloves. No big deal to show high respect for the flag in any way shape or form that it comes. I think the warmers are cool too. Go Spies!!!

    And seriously - did I change the video posting rule to allow them in any thread?

    Whoops, it's been a bit since I've been around, guess I should read the rules before posting next time. My bad.

    No worries, I'll nuke it later but figure it'll look like it's just because I disagree with him if I do it right now :)

    It's funny this came up.

    Last year I went home. The absence of Polish flags on houses, clothing, etc. or basic pride in the heritage was weird. I was told that the flag is for honorary and official use, not as a article of some sort of affection or enthusiasm towards your country. It was essentially viewed as disrespectful. Though it was a bit odd I can see the point, some people over here do it with absolutely no taste and it comes off corny as hell.

    Saying that, I did find a store selling soccer memorabilia/merchandise and managed to pick up a cool Polska beanie that I rocked everywhere for the rest of my visit. People would give me some weird looks though.

    So in review, having any clothing/hats etc. representing the Polish flag is deemed having lack of respect for your country, but apparently if you want to represent it while drunk out of your fucking mind at a international soccer match...it's okay.

    Makes perfect sense. :D

    You nailed it Mark, it becomes a personal thing when your family gives so much. One of my family members had to put guys from "Black Hawk Down" in body bags. I never served due to multiple knee injuries in high school...... I thought my best friend was going to punch a guy right in the face this weekend at the races, the guy rolled the flag up and threw it under a table because "it was about to pore down rain"........ Chris went and picked the flag up very gently and placed it on the table. The guy said "What's the big deal?" I said to him "You may want to shut up......" Chris is a current deputy and an ex Army MP. Sorry to keep this going. I think Ben is trying to do a good thing. Cam

    Christ, I'd rather see the flag as a diaper than listen to anymore of this shit. It's a fucking set of tire warmers, not Pilot nailing Christ to the cross with a DeWalt.

    Well I served. . . serve me up a ham sandwich, you're boring the fuck out of me.

    Stars and Stripes...

    I dont see anything wrong with some RWB colors going on things. Here is out 1st version of the Old Glory Buell. Its not a real flag...so no harm done. :) Its just close enough to get the point.

    Trust me...I dont want it to touch the ground either :Poke:

    GixxerBlade Oh geez

    If you want to get technical about the flag on Ben's bike it probably violates one of the Flag codes but awww who cares it's badass and makes me proud to be an American. :beer:
