Some malcontent kid from the suburbs probably thought he was cool doing that. What's it supposed to mean? Whoever said obedience was patriotism?

The US government and BushCo - every day

Well....I guess I'll apply it to Obama or McCain, whoever wins. But I never imagined obedience as patriotism anyway. It's not what this country was founded on. (It's such a vague statement that was stenciled. I'm telling ya, it's one of those suburban brats! The NYC environs still have a number of people who think they're "cooler" if they're in the city, though that's quickly changing).

I love it, but what does it make you think about?

Hmmmm....it makes me feel good about not liking my choices this November...and being afraid to say it to any audience.

I first read this as "Obesity Is Not Patriotism" which I think makes it just as interesting.
