Flags 2

I'm still a little awed by this whole flag thing.
Why are people more concerned with an object than the ideas it represents - jingoistic idolatry.
Is this a flag?

So if I have these at a 4th of July party are we going to be breaking the law by tossing them in the trash? Kevin suggest they go in the BBQ as that is the proper disposal method for used flags. Wait! That's flag burning!

How about flag pins? Or a flag t-shirt? At that party I'm picking up a cocktail smokie in BBQ sauce with my flag toothpick and drop a big glob of sauce on my flag t-shirt and drool sauce back on the toothpick flag.
Damn! Broke the law again! Twice!

I know this sounds ridiculous, but when you start having ridiculous laws it'll start to happen. Especially with simple minded bureaucrats or those just looking for a way to get somebody.

Now - wrap yourself in the flag and tell me, who is breaking the law here.
