San Diego July 4th, Part II

Like the swallows of Capistrano, they are back. The mass return of absentee boat owners is signaled by the flapping of American flags over normally quiet boats.

One sailboat provides a contrast. It's owner has raised the Lion of Scotland and the British Union Jack. With a perfectly straight face and a sterling British accent, this sailor has a question for some of the large power boaters. Don't they miss the old days, before the revolution when American colonists paid far less taxes than today? You can see the hurt and mistrust flash in the Americans' eyes. Our British friend does not realize that he is about one Obama sticker away from dire consequences.
