Law Requires ^American* Flags

Happy Independence Day, everyone.

Huffington Post story:

What's red, white and blue _ and made in China? A move is on in state legislatures to ensure that the flags folks will be flying and buying this Independence Day were made on this fruited plain.

Minnesota has passed the strongest measure, a new law that goes into effect at year's end requiring every Old Glory sold in state stores to be domestically produced. Violations are a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a $1,000 fine and 90 days in jail.

In Arizona, schools and public colleges were required starting July 1 to outfit every classroom from junior high up with a made-in-the-USA flag. Tennessee requires all U.S. flags bought via state contract to be made here, and similar bills are moving forward in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

What Willis Was Talking About:

Damned straight. Next should be that the Pledge of Allegiance is recited in every classroom in America. Followed by a short prayer.

Allen:

WhatWillis,

You got that right! But 14% of Americans bitched about it and got prayer taken out. Well, I'm one of the 86% that think the majority should rule.

This political correct BS is exactly BS. The hell with being PC, just tell it like it is.

U.P. Man:

Actually there is a simple solution.

The Flag is a symbol of the US.

It is basically a trademark, treat it a such.

Then authorize it to be made only in the US.
