Dissin’ and Pissin’ Allies Away!

Posted September 27th, 2010 by Iron Mike

Two years ago Dems were telling everybody that with two books published and a law degree from Harvard, that we were about to have the “smartest US President ever”.   Now it seems that Mister Oh-So-Smart and his peeps can’t even manage standard diplomatic protocol – like hanging an ally’s flag correctly. 


White House people should know how to do this – and State Department people should be double-checking.  Did Hillary let the Magic O screw up on his own?  Can you imagine our national outrage if Philippine President Aquino held a state dinner with our flag hung upside down?

    “Section 10. The flag, if flown from a flagpole, shall have its blue field on top in time of peace and the red field on top in times of war; if in a hanging position, the blue field shall be to the right (left of the observer) in time of peace, and the red field to the right (left of the observer) in time of war.”

    To the casual observer, this is confusing. Truly there are topics that are more vital than this. One more thing . . . in ANY arena, it is never OK to ridicule someone for their physical attributes . . . (reference to a speech impediment and fat women in previous posts). These comments are careless and mean spirited – not to mention archaic.

    Thanks in advance for being more sensitive to your readers . . . who are, in general, your fans!

    Addendum: This phrase seems much clearer.

    • When flown from a flagpole, the flag should have its blue stripe on top in times of peace, and the red on top in times of war. This phrase would have been more helpful to illustrate the error, along with a correctly hung flag on a pole.

    Showing the flag from a flagpole correctly would render the blue stripe at the top, red at the bottom of the furl. Some of us are spatially challenged, and need a picture of a flag hanging on the pole, rather than horizontally:)
