Stripes, Bars, and the Ten Commandments?

RECEIVED Wed., Aug. 24, 2005

Dear Editor,
    I visited Crawford, Texas, this Friday afternoon. When I was there I noticed a pro-Bush shrine that was set up in downtown Crawford. It consisted of two large tablets of the 10 Commandments and a Liberty Bell in between the commandment stones. One of the people orchestrating this shrine was wearing a Confederate flag hat. I would like to hear what connection these three symbols of the Confederate flag, Ten Commandments, and the Liberty Bell have to do with celebrating George Bush's imperialistic policy.
Inquisitively,
Elliot Kralj
