Only in San Francisco!

Oh! And this is the best part...Look who the deputy director for the San Francisco Public Works Department is. That's amusing if nothing else!

Do you know who Mohammad Nuru is?
What do you know about Mr. Nuru to make a comment like "Look who the deputy director for the San Francisco Public Works Department is. That's amusing if nothing else!"

Why is it funny? Because he's Arab?
Mister Nuru keeps the garbage trucks and water supply running in my city. As long as he's doing his job, he's fine in my book.

Anyway, I don't think American tax dollars should be going toward the display of a foreign flag (Italy). Not jingoism on my part, just common sense. I think if someone is allowed to paste lost dog posters on the same poles or photocopied adverts that say "Learn the Art of Seduction and Dirty Talk" (yes, we have those here), a guy can put up a damn flag.

Here is a photo of a bookstore in North Beach (the neighborhood Mr. Lee lives in). There are plenty of U.S. flags on display on this banner.  Smile

Read closely

Superfly! I like it great symbolism.  Smile

Have you been to the North Beach area? What is the big commotion? There are posters/signs on posts all over. The new light posts that are freshly painted with the Italian colors seem to be no big deal. The merchants seem to like all the flags American or not. Heck, even City Lights likes them!

Thanks for the pic!

Pacificjourney, you wouldn't know what patriotism is if it hit you in the face.

Flying flags can be a symbol of patriotism, if you didn't know that.

You got me wrong Alpha. I'm just happy it's so easy, put up a flag, instant patriot !

Now I don't have to bother with all that difficult shit like paying taxes and voting and being involved and caring about government policey ... cause look at me, I'm patriotic ! What a relief.

You're so pathetic-you really are. Putting up a flag doesn't make one an instant patriot-and the sad thing is you know that, but you're just looking to piss people off, which is, after all, what you do best.

A flag is a symbol of patriotism-as is patriotic music, parades, etc. But patriotism-love for one's country, resides inside a person, not merely by waving a flag. I think you know this, but you're not man enough to admit you know that-you'd rather play dumb and piss people off.

I go to North Beach many times.
Great restaurants, Brewies, bookstores, coffe shops, record stores and close to many scenic spots like Coit Tower, Russian Hill, Lombard Street and many other cool spots.
There really isn't any commotion. I haven't heard anything about it until you brought it up.


Alpha1:
You made the same point Pacificjourney made, so why are you two at each others throat?
I agree, patriotism is much deeper than putting up a flag.
I am a patriot because I support U.S. made products and I buy America as much as I can. it's getting harder and harder these days
I also get involved with my community and I vote.  Smile
People who sit around and complain about things and yet do nothing about it really get on my nerves. These are usually the A-political types.

Show love for your country!
Power to the people!
Buy American and support the UAW.

Good one superfly.

Buy american, just because it's american. Lets start a new world depression and world war while we are at it.

Buy american because it's the best, not because it's american. Making the best products at the best price in the best way, now that would be something to have pride in !

Pacificjourney, that's amazing! You just said what I'm always say when confronted with anything you say!

Well, actually, it's "duh", which has a little more negative sound to it, but you get the drift.  Wink/being sarcastic

A fact proved so completely at Nuremburg. But I digress.

Need I remind you that probably the single most heroic act of patriotism in the past year was undertaken by everyday Americans aboard a blue and grey Boeing 757 over the farmlands of Pennsylvania...

...and need I remind you to which city, a city called home by more than a few of them, they were all headed for?

Thanks Superfly, Hope everything is now ok in North Beach, it is a great spot. Sheesh, it is interesting where this post went...The gutter. Started by some inane comment from far, far away. And a non-American at that, who probably was only trying to bait people. What the hell do you care what goes on in San Francisco anyway? You are a gaijin in Japan. Is that why you are so bitter?

Certifiable you are. See what others think of you?

Thanks again Superfly at least you have some decorum. Go UAW!

I am off to do what I really like. FLY! laters

The only flame-bait in this thread was the title you put on it. Something like

'check out this attention seeking SF man with too much time on his hands'

might have been better.

Really? Has anyone here STOPPED you from voicing your comments, ridiculous as we might think they are? I don't think so. So stop crying about not having "free speech" on here.
