Vet takes down disrespected American flag

Im sure ya'll saw this a year or more back, but it seems fitting now.
The disrespect and or ignorance of some people is amazing.
What the hell are those idiots thinking?
I would never go to another country and run the American flag over that nations
flag. Its wrong and disrespectful.
The only time it is correct is when you have been victorous in battle over them in there
own country. Is that what they think? I hope not, for our sakes and theirs.

In my grandfathers day a man
may lay dead after doing that to the American flag.
I better keep my mouth shut with any futher of my feelings.

I tottaly agree with that. The owner of that store should be jailed for disgracing the American flag. Its in our constitution. When our country needs patriatism more than ever, Americans are leaving her abandoned. The liberals have taken over at the worst point in the last 50 years. I dont see things getting any better for atleast 10 years. If we could boot people out for unpatriotic behaviors we would be better off, but that would never happen, not in this day and age, when politically correct runs everything. BS is you ask me.

i agree charles

dont get me wrong, obviously i speak english, but i am fluent in filipino, i have been wanting to learn a 3rd language for some time now, i am thinking of spanish, i just wish they would atleast want to learn english, in no way do i hate latinos, but i really think that pressing 1 for english or 2 for espanol is kinda ridiculous.

Raffy Good for you

Not being a smartass really.
Education can be a good thing.
At 63 there is little hope of me
learning another language. I
barely know english. (spelling etc)
I had a full time job when I was in
highschool and barely got done
what was needed to graduate.

When he went and got to the government loan to buy his business. I wish he would have made a step towards that vet and he would have had that K-bar stuck clear threw him.The last thing he would have seen threw his dying eyes would have been the burning pride and love for his country if the Veteran's eyes.

I'm curious. You said that you are fluent in "Filipino". Is that really the name of the language? I have been under the impression that there are two languages spoken in the Philipines, but I don't remember their names.
I once worked with a couple of Filipinos, and got to know several of their friends. They all spoke English as well as I did, but would speak to each other in their native language. I learned a few words and phrases, but I've forgotten all of it now. That was back in 1956 & 1957, so maybe I have an excuse.

when i said fluent in filipino, it meant that i was fluent in tagalog, which is the main language in the philippines hence just called filipino, but like you said, there are more than just 2 languages in filipino, for every province(states) they have their own language.

TAGALOG AND ENGLISH

Are spoken and taught in Philippine schools...The further away from the main cities, the less English spoken, however you can find English speakers almost everywhere. Some locations have heavy Chinese influence, while most of the country maintains some (if little Spanish influence). Money is pesos...like Mexico, which is from Spain. Numbering has a lot more Spanish influence as well. So, there is a mix and even their English is quite different than other Asian nations. They really do have a very unique culture and their history is also quite different from many other nations in the area. I am reading a book right now ( almost done) and it is a short history of the Asian countries: A Short History of South-East Asia, by Peter Church. It's very enlightening, I recommend it to anyone interested in that part of the world. Thailand is another unique country in the region...right now I am on the last country, Vietnam.

Back to language, Tagalog is spoken in all provinces as far as I know...what differs is the dialects. You know...just like me not being able to understand people like Snake if I went down to his neck of the woods or like him coming to see me and realizing that my family speaks at about 99mph versus his at 25mph.

Also...just because we are on this topic. Filipino is used when referring to a male of that country, whereas Filipina would be used for a female. Speaking of Filipinas, they are some of the best women in the world, if you find a good one, in my opinion, they will make a wonderful wife in all aspects...however, if you get a bad one, they will make any psycho movie character look like Little Bo Beep!!! They are outstanding at budgeting and saving money also.

My opinion of course...don't let anyone fool you either, they will say that they are not like Imelda Marcos in respect to their love of shoes...that's total bullshit! I never met a Filipina with less than 100 pairs of shoes!!! And they do point with their lips!!!

I really started to say Tagalog, but I wasn't sure that I was correct. Does anyone know all the languages used in the different provinces? I'm not a good enough linguist to become proficient in that many languages. Are the different languages very different from one another?

well ecaman

the languages spoken there are very different, because like tagalog, came from like spanish, as we have words that are common in the spanish dialect, and some languages have malay influences and such, and the philippines has a lot of tribes that has their own language for communication, im a 3rd generation American but has spent a lot of time in the philippines because my grandfather from the mother side owned a farm in the philippines and one summer vacation i decided to finish high school there, many Americans in the philippines too, especially in olongapo, subic bay and such.

Great post as always.. when i was there students were fined in school for speaking Tagalog vs English.. cant remember how much. Do remember the exchange rate was a straight 4X1.. pesos to dollar..

Absolutely right about the Filapina.. No where on Gods green earth or women and more beautiful or sweet for that matter..Old Art Bell had a reason to move to the PI

By the way i don't think anyone has included a pronunciation guide on Tagalog

its ta gal O ... with the A's short as in ah.. and the O long

My father was an Okie. He spoke so slow that I always interrupted him thinking he was finished. It was painful to carry on a conversation with him because there was so much dead air space. On the other hand my daughter, Melissa, speaks so fast I usually have no idea what she is saying. In fact, I use her name as a unit of measurement. No one can talk faster than "1 Melissa," period. We all speak a fraction, like "Half a Melissa" or "three-quarters of a Melissa." She wasn't all that happy with me when I explained the measurement. "What if I speak faster?" she said. "Then you just upped the bar, sweetheart," I told her. "It's still 1 Melissa."

Tagalog, btw is spoken so fast that when they first put in digital phone lines in the bases, the Filipinas jammed them up to capacity. Friend of mine in the Navy was tasked with upping the bandwidth to handle it.
