Ah yes, I didn't look close enough to see the blue water! There's none of that in Cornwall!

Several years ago we visited the US and were amazed at the No. of flags that were flown EVERYWHERE we went... here's just a couple:

You see them all over these days, I assume someone is making a small fortune on the whole idea.
You know, those plastic or nylon American flags that mount to the roof of a car, held in place in the door jamb.
I see more of them, or what's left of them laying amongst the garbage, dirt and gravel alongside the free-ways, than I do on cars.
Strange thing that. I mean really, where are all of those folks that throw a fit over someone burning a flag? One of them has to have seen the remains of this most sacred of patriotic symbols pinned down by a pile of street sweepings or a dirty diaper.
Is it better to have an American flag covered in filth alongside the highways and byways of the United States than to have it burned by some zealous person that has a problem with the way our leaders are doing things?
Is it OK to have a giant American flag torn and tattered flying in front the local fast food joint, just because it's in Home-town USA?
What makes it any better for us to treat this great symbol like a piece of trash, than someone else?
Don't get me wrong, back in the late 70's I got a ration of crap for having a large American flag on the back of my Levi jacket, in rhinestones, no less . It irks the hell out of me that there's a company making money off of the planned obsolescence of these cheesy and jingoistic attempts to bolster patriotism. When ever I see a former car-top flag, half buried by the detritus of the daily commute, I wonder if it's former owner gave a second thought to where the flag came off the car, as he or she pulled the remnants of it's mount from the car and tossed it in the trash. Do they care if the flag was disposed of properly, maybe they thought someone else picked it up, and did the right thing, and burned it.

Disposal should be through burning, in a dignified fashion, should it not?

I saw one of those in the street once. I stopped, picked it up and attached it to my work truck.
