Why We’re Flying Our Flag Today …
Because it still waves, over Cecile’s Salon and 360 Tarjetas Telefonicas and Dan Jacobson Automobiles Inc. (DBA Hillcroft Auto Sales).
Not because we support the hoked-up war.
Or the silly-ass flag-burning amendment.
Or warrantless searches and sanctioned torture.
Or unchecked presidential power.
Or [whatever’s next] …
A decent respect to the opinions of our neighbors requires us to make that clear.
Sic temper tyrannis! (Figuratively speaking.)
And kiss our mottled Scots-Irish ass!
