So called “patriots day” 911

Why not, eh? If you say you love your police state government and you love your flag, pick the motherf- (ahem) cloth idol up when you drop it.If I had the foolish habit of saluting the flag each time I pass it, I would have to glue my right hand over my left chest, just from the ones you idiots let fly off your vehicles and leave in the gutter. Hey, that’s real patriotism, ain’t it? There’s a lot of evidence, not real proof of course, that your rich-bitch masters who you also wish me to revere as “leaders” set up 9-11.

Like no colonels or generals killed at the Pentagon and there were no trade ministers, CEOs of any corporations, especially banking, just a bunch of lower management and labor employees in the Twin Towers. On a Not-Holiday Tuesday in September in the mid morning. I’m calling shenanigans.

I also ain’t going to fly any flags or do any useless praise for the Police State being spread across the world, violently, at a taxpayer expense of trillions of dollars, to somehow “avenge” 9-11.

Note: one of the flags I pulled out of a ditch was just outside Woodland Park some years ago, I was out walking that ribbon of highway and saw above me that endless skyway, and saw below me a place to duck behind a tree to relieve my bladder. And… there, a familiar pattern showed up… and I said to myself, as I often do, “Self, another one of those fake ‘patriots’ lost a flag, and was too god-damned lazy to pick it up”. What’s the excuse, y’all? If you’re heading into Woodland freakin’ Park are you seriously that damned pressed for time that you can’t pull over, pull your idol out of the mud and then go on your way? What is there in Woodland Park that won’t be there in five minutes? Did you think the whole town would be dismantled and moved or be deserted by the time you get there?

Here’s a nice part. It was in a rat’s nest and really dirty.

When I got into Woodland Park I stopped at the Fire Station and asked if they have any kind of, you know, protocol to give the flag a military funeral as prescribed in the Flag Code. They had none, and suggested that I ask the VFW or American Legion. So I went to the vets, who also didn’t have anything set up, and suggested the Boy Scouts. First they said Fire Department but ..

I wound up doing it myself.

See, I pick up your flags, and take pictures of them, and every now and then post what’s being done in the name of Patriotism, to shame you. Not that you have enough personal dignity to feel shame, but I try, really I do.
I used to be a boy scout and when I was in High School I was ROTC and when I came of age I joined the Air Farts, and unlike George Bush I actually finished my enlistment, stayed in until my Honorable discharge. Not that I liked them or agreed with their agenda. I just, you know, had given my word to do so.
