His current effort is to chronicle Flagger "failures" to get Mimi Elrod voted out of office, or to pressure Lexington businesses economically to support ending the city ordinance that bans flags (except official state and local flags) from flagstaffs attached to city-owned light poles. I left a comment on his blog, but of course, he won't post it. He's very thin-skinned that way...
Andy, you're mighty eager to pronounce flagger efforts as failures because they don't accomplish within months what will likely require years; and because they don't accomplish within years what may take decades.Wouldn't you love to hear Andy's answer to that last question? We may as well forget about it, though. Hell will freeze over before Andy explains his penchant for engaging in what he berates others for.
Do you know how long it took flag attackers in South Carolina to get the flag off the dome? How many years they introduced legislation to remove it that produced no result, session after legislation session? Did you counsel them to give up because they didn't get the flag removed the first time they tried? Did you tsk-tsk the NAACP for hurting South Carolina's economy with their boycott. and post charts on line about it?
You seem disappointed that the flaggers and other heritage defenders are not short sighted and are in it for the long haul -- but mostly because they don't pay any attention to your periodic, very transparent -- but ultimately irrelevant -- carping meant to discourage them.
Hope you get some kind of enjoyment calling city officials in a state you don't live in and posting your little charts here because, as material meant to discourage flaggers, your efforts are a total bust (though it might get you some atta-boys and cyber slaps on the back from your fellow floggers).
BTW, if the flaggers -- many of whom are citizens of Virginia -- have no business being concerned with Lexington, how is it that you do?
