Flagging Spirits

The Old Sarge reports stopping by the Post Office a couple of weeks ago to send off a package to Pack Rat and noticing that they had the flag at half-staff. Upon inquiring as to why, he was told that it was in honor of those killed at Virginia Tech. This, of course, occasioned one of those "WTFO" moments wherein he wondered why the flag at the United States Post Office would be at half-staff for a bunch of students who were killed in a crime spree in another state.

Last Monday, he stopped by the grocery store across the street and noticed that the same flag at the same Post Office was at full-staff. On Memorial Day. A Federal holiday.

Oh, well. As long as they all feeeeeeel good about it.

God help Amerika.

There's only one American flag I care to own anymore, and that is a 13-star Betsy Ross flag, because this country needs a rebelious kick in the @$$ so bad it's pathetic!
If you know where I can get one that's actually made here (not in China) let me know.
