Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

My flag is bigger than yours

'Patriot-baiting' - v. to entice someone usually with indignant and belittling remarks about their devotion to their country. Usually used by conservatives who have not served in the military against liberals who have also not served in the military, also proffering a position, usually exhibited by vacuous people, such as "my flag is bigger than yours" braggadociosly.

Josh Gross, who bills his site as the SC marketplace for conservative ideas, but proves to be more of a Harare Grocer (h/t Waldo) patriot-baited some friends of ours on the left for not having ostentatious dispalys of patriotism on this the 7th anniversary of 9/11. 

Not Very Bright rises to the task and exposes his bluster. And Waldo points out that not only did he mark the day in prayer but show's that Senator McCain despite his campaigns degeneration still has more class than the conservative elites and those that self-style themselves as such, like Mr. Gross.
