Flag Wavers

As my wife and I were driving back from Canyon City today, she made a comment about those who wave the flag at every opportunity. Her question (& mine) is how many of those who claim to be so patriotic and support King George II in all his endeavors do you suppose cheat on their taxes? While we're talking about flag wavers, can't somebody please teach them about flag etiquette. I see so many American flags flying all the time, rain, snow, daytime, night time, and in some many states of disrepair that I just want to shake their owners. If they are so damned patriotic at least learn how the flag is to be treated. I put mine up for Flag Day and the 4th of July and other holidays that seem to call for a respectful display of our country's colors and put it away the rest of the time.

I hate those car aerial flags. They shred at 60+mph. If you have to have a flag on the car, folks, get a window sticker - at least it will stay in one piece and keep its colors bright.
