I'm 73 and my memory may be failing me, but....

I don't ever remember people flying huge flags with a presidential candidate's name on it. Besides the trucks and the boats in Texas, there are boats right here in liberal Massachusetts flying the damn Trump things.

But maybe this isn't new?

1. And they fly the American flag at the same height.

Flag etiquette says the American flag should always be higher than other flags I think

6. Neither do I.

I thought about that when we first heard about the Portland shooting. I donít recall anyone having huge flags of a candidate or even the Presidentís name.

Signs, bumper stickers, shirts, hats, buttons... sure

Huge flags? No. I donít recall.

7. The Trump Party (formerly the Republican Party) has taken on a beligerent

and dangerous tone. There are some republicans like Hogan of Maryland that Rick Snyder that still believe that they can salvage the Republican Party by supporting lower republican office seekers. The only former republican that appears to have any sense of reality is Stuart Stephens, who has abandoned the party for the Democratic Party.

11. It is new, AND IT's because they have nothing except those huge stupid flags to fly.

No policy, no plan, no balls.

And they make up the base of the Republican Party.
