American Flag...

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:32 AM

How sad. I just had CNN Headline News on, and some student (and star sports player at some college) who disagrees with current government policy felt a good way to express this way to face away from the flag during the Pledge of Allegiance. How sad that someone would think that rejecting our flag, in essence, our country is the right way to disagree with certain policies. Apparently the student is at the college only has the opportunity to be the star there because the government is giving her a scholarship…

RE: American Flag...

I agree. This puts me in mind of a spoiled kid throwing a tantrum. She doesn’t like something, so she turns her back on a symbol that represents so many of the freedoms and luxuries that she enjoys (including that scholarship). But hey, at least she lives in a country where she can disagree with government policies without being thrown in jail or killed.
