From the Rude Pundit's kind and giving lips to your ears

Word:

Tell you what: when someone makes it illegal for so-called patriots to keep flying their ripped up, fucked up, bug-corpse encrusted, car-adorning flags that they discovered they loved on about September 12, 2001, then we'll fuckin' talk.

(Confidential to my neighbors: It's called "flag etiquette", you might wish to look into it, though I fully support your Constitutional right to mount pairs of stuffed Uncle Sams, flags etched in burnt-out Christmas lights, pastel-schemed Stars and Stripes, stained flag t-shirts with sequins missing, peeling reflective flag decals, and any other flag-tokens you like. It's a free country.)

Will we be able to burn Confederate flags?

Will my flag decal still get me into heaven?

Will we be able to burn Confederate flags?

Or, at least, posters of the new Dukes of Hazzard movie?

Hereinafter the proper way to dispose of a worn out flag will be to bury it with full honors, in a flag draped coffin, using the draped flag as a replacement. That solves that problem. Then, it will always be permitted to burn a flag or desecrate it in any other manner, so long as you are a Christian (of an approved denomination) and are doing so to support the Republicans.

Another faux wedge issue... its bait.

all the bizarre and arcane flag rules -- no rain, folding ritual, down at dusk -- probably kept the informed patriotic from jumping on the 9/12 bandwagon. it certainly kept me from buying a pain-in-the-- er, flag.

Flags...what a bunch of b.s.

Unlikely. My guess is that while there is still at least one star and part of one stripe connected to oen another, we will maintain the flag on a "support machine" (a pole), all the while loudly disputing with anyone who says it's worn out, and insisting that we saw it wave. Culture of life, people.
