I’m still on about flag pins…

OK, so I’m still on boil about this whole flag pin flap.

I’m not trying to demean George Stephanopoulos, who obviously feels passionately that one of the most pressing concerns of the day is understanding why Obama doesn’t wear a flag pin, and what that means… What does he mean, what does it mean?  Does George have a flag pin?  He wasn’t wearing one at the debate last night.  Neither was Hillary…WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT MEANS?

Alright, so maybe I am trying to demean him and all of ABC just a little.  But, seriously, if that is the most pressing issue they think we’re facing today, can I just say, huh?  I’ve got bills to pay, a car to fill-up with gas I can’t afford, and my check book looks like it’s been in the hands of the Bush administration.

So, here’s what I think we should do with flag pins.  (No, not that.)  I think we should have all of our politicians auction them off on E-Bay, with all proceeds going to say our schools?  Veterans? Affordable health care? Mortgage assistance for families? A balanced budget?

It’d be so patriotic, really.  A little capitalism, self-sacrifice, and service to our country, all in one.  Heck, it might even help stimulate economic growth.  Besides, if we don’t do something now about this pressing issue, in four years, it’ll be all about how "mine is bigger, than yours," and we don’t want that.  We really, really don’t want that.

  1. We need to raise holy hell about the unwillingness of the President to support a GI bill of rights, about the incredible number of soldiers walking around with PTSD, about the real stuff that needs to be corrected. Women are sexually assaulted in Iraq – nothing is done. Sheesh! The list of transgressions of this administration are so long, there isn’t time to list them all.

    Flag pins??? FLAG PINS??? Please tell me someone is joking!!!!!

  2. Great article and I agree…..and I feel the same way about the “Ribbons” on cars. I totally care about the troops in the Middle East, and what is happening or not to our Veterans. Being involved in campaigns and caring deeply about what happens to my country, makes me a Patriot. But I don’t have to tote symbols to prove it. Put your money and time where your symbols are – makes more sense.
