Not too long ago, those showing the Gadsden Flag were potential domestic terrorists. Now they’re Tea Party members.
The Gadsden flag is not on the approved list of the local homeowners’ association. Homeowners’ associations are an issue of their own, in Murdoc’s humble opinion.
When Murdoc was a kid, he had a stack of Gadsden flag stickers and after slapping a few on the red shelves in his bedroom, he saved the rest for special things. More recently, he had a rattlesnake “ribbon” magnet for his car, but some nice person borrowed it a while back and forgot to return it.
Plus, this bit cracks me up:
He notes that the banner, the Gadsden flag, has been widely used over the years and was even featured on the cover of a rock album. “Am I a Metallica fan because I’m using the flag?” he asked.
Over at Murdoc Online, I’ve displayed the “Don’t Tread On Me” First Navy Jack for years. When someone sent me a flag and I took it into work, a co-worker asked me if I was aware that Metallica had written a song called “Don’t Tread on Me” way back in 1990 or 1991.
For what it’s worth, the redesign of the GunPundit site puts the Gadsden flag in the header. Good thing my site isn’t part of any homeowners’ associations.
