Ryan and Sarah were live with us today for Great Mate Debate. They just moved in to a diverse neighborhood and are settling in nicely. Ryan now wants to hang an American flag out front to show his patriotism. Sarah is glad that he is patriotic but thinks he could show it in other ways because she doesn’t want to be seen as “that family” in the neighborhood. She fears that being as they are the minority in that neighborhood it will be taken as something other than patriotism.
Slacker comes from a “flag family” but has never really been that guy himself. He admits that it’s mostly because he fears his HOA and he has no idea what the rules are about it. Both Slacker and Steve say that they didn’t realize what the big deal was until Sarah explained and can understand why the flag might have them dubbed “that family”. But still think that it’s sad that this is even a debate because this is America.
Whose side are you on?
I hate to admit this but I think that was one of the most pathetic GMD’s ever. I have no idea how it’s even argument. I think Sarah is being paranoid about the flag and should be glad she has the luxury of affording a home in this wonderful country. I say, “Go Ryan! Fly that flag in front of your house!”
