    Am I Wrong To Let This Bother Me?

    Since I am currently toying with the decision to either buy or build a house, I have been watching a lot HGTV lately. There is a show that comes on HGTV called Spice Up My Kitchen. I have seen only two episodes, but I noticed in both of them something that bothers me.

    One of the actors/capenters, Mark McGraw, wore a t-shirt that was solid red. In the center there was a cingular star, and in the center of the star is the crossed sickle and hammer. I thought the guy may just be your typical idiot that has no sense of history or politics, and wore the shirt because he thought it looked cool. I thought maybe he had no clue about the symbolism of the shirt. If that is the case, shouldn't HGTV be more concerned about the message their hosts are sending whether these hosts intend to send a message or not? Am I wrong for even letting this bother me? Am I too old fashioned for still believing that commies, and their ideology are bad, and opposed to the United States?

    Sounds like a case of stupid, like all the hippie kids wearing Che shirts without knowing who the man was or what he did.

    From their web site...

    After graduating, McGraw had a 10-year career as a firefighter/paramedic with the city of Springfield, Ore.

    I don't think the shirt reflects his politics....it's a new fashion trend.

    Great! Maybe I could cash in on this new trend! Instead of building a new house, I could sell my lot as a mass grave!

    Wouldn't think too much into it. People mostly do things they think is trendy, etc.

    Doesn't make it right, but he probably hasn't the slightest idea what it is.

    Wrong? I don't think so. This is similar to me busting the balls of Canadian truck drivers sporting Confederate flags either on their trucks or on their person.

    If you are sporting a logo, a symbol, etc. you should know what the hell it means, and if you don't know what it means, you shouldn't be wearing or displaying it. Just my opinion.

    reminds me of that actress that wore some fucked up tee shirt in that foriegn country... and offended them greatly...
    all because of retro fashion shit...

    some of these t's go for like 200 bucks... its retarded.

    that guy i think is also a fucking moron... well anyone wearing a retro shirt with no clue is a moron.

    i would send them a letter to get it off my chest and then be done with it

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    You know what worries me more than that? As election season approaches, look carefully at the campaign signs that Democrats have out. A lot of them (at least around here) have a single red star somewhere on the sign. Not a field of stars, or stars of different colors. Just one red star place inconspicuously near the name. That pisses me off.

    No doubt "the Estrogen Channel" (Lifetime) is somewhere on his TIVO's favorites!
