This is so stupid.  We need an anti-liberal flag.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

I know, but we need one specifically to mean anti-liberal.  We can put it on our bumpers, wear it on t-shirts, hang it on antennas, and put it in our yards.

It has to be as obnoxious to them as the gay flag is to us.

Maybe something like this with a big red X over it.

I see what you're saying, and I not only agree, but I'll fund it if you can find a good graphic artist to design one.
Maybe we can start a movement.

Ya shouldn't bother.  The original Dukes Of Hazard was a Hollywood-ripoff of the Hal Needham/Burt Reynolds classics... which on-turn were homages to Thunder Road, Fireball, The Road Hustlers, The Devil's 8, etc.

It was politically correct even back then...  I don't think anybody actually took-a-drink.  Which was the point of the Southern flirtation with 'shine-laws and dry-counties.

Aside from it being an unnecessary slap at hillbillies (non-Beverley style), and grotesque caricatures for a cast, it did have a hot car and Catherine Bach.

Yeah, if memory serves, it was the over the top stereotype PC bull shit Hollyweird was putting out at the time, and I refused to support it.

Remember Starsky and Hutch? Nowadays it's Justified. Better dialogue. Like Firefly, another one to regret not sticking around....
