    So upon arrival at work today I observed that all city of Cleveland controlled flags were at full staff this morning. Federal, county and private businesses all were at half staff. Someone must have figured it out because they are being corrected now but what an embarrassment. Crack head Whitney Houston gets buried and flags were lowered in her honor but for September 11th it didn't seem important enough.

    But then the bumper stickers and t shirts that say 'never forget' would make no sense.

    Flags should always be at half staff in Cleveland for Cleveland.

    Only more annoying stickers than the knee jerk 9/11 stickers are the family phaggot stick figures on rear windows telling me how many mutant offsprings someone has. FUCK YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

    I saw a minivan the other day that had those Jesus fish stickers but one for each family member. Like the kids were wearing ball caps and the mom had lipstick - on fish :facepalm:

    like this but different

    One of the best posts I saw around here was someone saw one of those family style stickers of each family member in the window of a van, and he wanted to kill one of the kids to see if they updated their stickers. :jj:

    I used to have small round white stickers with a screw on them. Bought a pack of 25 from the back of a hit parader magazine. I would wait until I saw a car with one of those "I my poodle" or similar and you would put it over the heart so it said they screw their poodle.

    Good times, good times.
