From Amherst to Marblehead, MA Liberals Just Don’t Like Old Glory

This the flag that flies at Gravity Fitness in Marblehead, MA, and inspired a stack of complaints and protests from sweaty liberals at the gym:

"Are you guys serious about that flag? It’s offensive."

"Its like putting a Jesus cross in my face."

"Its obnoxious. Its blocking the TVs."

Mark, the owner, is quick to point out he got some positive comments, too.  But he was so taken aback by the initial, negative reaction from the Marblehead locals that he called into the show yesterday to share the story and check his own sanity.

I reminded him: You’re not insane, you’re just outnumbered.

By the way, is there something about working out that makes Lefties cranky?  Remember the whiners in Ipswich who demanded FOX News be pulled off the workout TVs—even though they couldn’t hear it—because they found its mere appearance on the screen offensive?

Get outta the gym, liberals. You’re all a bunch of girlie men.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
