Stupid Tattoos and a little Political Rant

I love doing stupid tattoos.  Did the Flying Frog today.  The Death Ray cow is from a few months back. They're both on the same guy.

So, I got in a discussion with a friend of mine today on Facebook, who was irritated by the fact that he had seen someone riding a Japanese Motorcycle flying an American Flag behind it.  Here's my opinion on that:
Sure, I think that people in America should try to support American companies and products, but that's not always easy. Our government taxes American corporations to the point where they can't compete with the prices of overseas companies and still make a profit, and with the economy the way it is, many of us have to buy what we can afford. But in an age where flying the American flag is no longer PC, when children are sent home from school for wearing American flag shirts, and flying the flag is seen as being disrespectful to people that are in our country illegally- who shouldn't even be here to begin with. When the left is trying to destroy all the things that made this country great, and America is being flushed down the toilet, ANYONE that is flying the flag should be considered a PATRIOT and congratulated for their support of our country, not condemned for not riding an American motorcycle.

  1. Let's not forget a lot of foreign vehicles are built in the US, while a lot of US vehicles are built somewhere else. Got into an argument with someone about it whose Ford was assembled in Mexico while my Honda was made in Ohio. It'd be nice if American companies built quality goods, you know, in America, but it's rare.
