This pissed me off, and normally I don't care.

    This pissed me off. Yesterday I was behind a guy, looked like a younger guy but hard to tell from the back. He was in a full size (my dick is very tiny) newer model Dodge Ram. Had some stickers on his back window with the American flag NOT being one of them. I tell you this because on his tailgate he had a sticker that said "take my American flag off of your foreign vehicle". This really bothered me, and I normally could give a shit about anyones political views/religion or whatever you have slapped on the back of your car/truck. For the 1st time in my life I actually tried to catch up with the guy to ask him about it. To see if he actually had a good point or was just some dumb fuck who thinks he is more American than me cause I have a Toyota.

    So I'm done with my :rant:, and needed to vent. Also I'm curious what you guys think of this too. Discuss, please and thank you.

    I have fought and bled for that flag. I have had guns pointed at me while defending it. Friends of mine have fought until the end. My wife fought to become a citizen so she could call the flag her own...If I want to drive a Tacoma I'm going to, if you don't like it, don't drive one...as long as we all remember that it's OUR FLAG, not YOURS.

    Thats my thoughts;)

    1st I want to thank all who have served and are serving.

    And your right Jim, I know he probably wanted to start shit, think just caught me at the wrong moment. He also drove like an asshole anyway and I couldn't catch up with him. Not sure if that was better for him or me. :cool:
    Very nice, thank you. Not only the parts, but the Americans employed is a good point!
    Very true.

    To the OP - if you pulled up next to him and asked him his reasoning for the sticker, I don't think it'd be a "healthy" conversation. Maybe more yelling, the finger, and some possible road rage. Take those idiots with a grain of salt - like some people on the internet!

    This right here is the trump card. Thanks for your service!

    This is true. I want to point out that I didn't lose it to the point that I was willing to drive like a dick to keep up with this asshole, but I was really hoping to catch him at the next light. Which makes me wonder if he saw me read it, and being it was dark, he may have saw my eyes glow red. Hence the driving like an asshole. Ha ha.

    Are you talking about the guy with the sticker or the guy who is freaking out because somebody has a different viewpoint that his own?

    I didn't freak out. You find nothing wrong with what the sticker said? Thats the point of what I'm saying.

    One of the freedom we have in America is Freedom of Speech, it does not mean that people know what there talking about though. I see bumper stickers all the time, that do hit a nerve with me, and really want to chase the person down.

    I'm not going to debate whether the guy is an idiot or not. Some will agree with him, some won't.
    "Freaking out" may have been an exaggeration, but you said yourself you wanted to chase him down and confront him about it. That just seems ridiculous to me. We meet people every day that have different opinions and values than our own, but to be pissed off because they have a different point of view seems narrow minded and intolerant to me, and a big waste of time.
    Just my two cents.
    And I apologize if you took offense to my comment, no insult was intended.
    Maybe it would have been simpler if I just said don't sweat the small stuff.
