Two-edged sword

During World War II my mother and father had four stars in their window for their four sons in the service. My father was a gentle man, but he did not suffer fools. I know that if anyone in his neighborhood had put up displays such as those recently in Sacramento he would have gone there and knocked the antiwar, anti-American on his butt.

I guess these people missed 9/11 and are waiting for the sequel. Freedom of speech has a two edged sword.
