"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

I love this flag so much that I will keep faith in it, even when it is hijacked by mendacious suckfish and jackbooted zealots. I love this flag so much that I will never forget the sacrifice of the young men and women who fought and died beneath it, especially those sent to their deaths by lying, murdering scum. I love this flag so much that I will try to remain patient with those who, motivated by fear and distracted by bread and circuses, will turn a blind eye to its awful desecration by torturers and war criminals. I love this flag so much that I will even defend your right to burn it if you choose.
This flag, on the other hand, is just dumb:
Happy flag day, anyway.
Much better, design-wise, is this Christian flag, but its proponents can be awfully silly. "The Christian flag is one of the oldest unchanged flags in the world" is, well, a bit of an exaggeration. Christians, meet Denmark.
BTW, if you are still in touch with Keith Livingston, wish him a happy birthday for me! For some odd reason, I forget all of my niece's birthdays, but I still remember that Keith's was Flag Day.
