    The six signs posted on Lyons Jewelers in Bedford got everyone's attention on Wednesday. "There's one saying shame on USA and Virginia. Oh my God." The signs explained why Lyons Jewelers was not open. The largest sign told people it was closed to "Mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us." Another sign said "The president seeks my demise." A friend of the owner, R.T. Lyons, tell us "He done it to show that he didn't agree and didn't like what happened." Many people we spoke with were very upset by the signs. "I don't think...

    The way things have been going lately, I decided it was time to reach back into the nation's history and dig deep for a little inspiration. Shortly after the Roberts/Obamacare decision, I gave thought to flying the Gadsden Flag, but that just wasn't a strong enough message...the Bedford Flag was more expressive about how I feel, but where to find one? You can buy some cheap nylon ones online, but they look trashy and are probably made in China. I decided to make my own, and today, just about wrapped it up...I took photos along the way, some with my...
