combating liberalism and other childish notions

WHILE SHOPPING TODAY

New York City is as blue as blue can be – politically speaking.

In the very city that suffered the greatest destruction and loss of life during the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 there exists some of the greatest apathy toward the continuing War on Terror you’ll find anywhere. In the city where Obama t-shirts are sold on the corner like dirty-water hot dogs, anti-war buttons are as common as manhole covers, and a gigantic hole still exists where the twin towers used to stand,  conservatism is generally regarded with the same warmth as a painful inner ear infection.

Yet, there are places around the city where there still exist pockets of good old fashioned, unabashed, flag waving patriotism.

Here on Staten Island – the most conservative of New York’s five boroughs – on the front windows of the little market in my neighborhood are these two signs.

It truly did my heart good to see them.
