TODAY IS FLAG DAY!
AS I travel around I notice that the American flag is being proudly displayed…..and most of the displays are done completely wrong.
I thought since today is Flag Day that I would help the idiots learn the proper way of display…..
It is the universal custom to display the American flag only from sunrise to sunset on buildings and on stationary flagstaffs in the open. However, when a patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed twenty-four hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.
The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously.
Then there are the DON’Ts…..
It is sad that so-called “patriots” need to be schooled all the time in the object that profess to adore.
If you display the flag then for god’s sake display it properly…..or stop pretending.
Did you know that in 1942 the Supreme Court ruled against requiring students to salute the American flag is unconstitutional?
Now You Know!
