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.
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.
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.
