"What The Flag Stands For" is ajoke. Charlotte A. writes about the flag as if it is a punishment to respect thered, white and blue. She says that "it is against the law to let the flagtouch the ground or to leave it flying when the weather is bad," but that"no one cares if a homeless person touches the ground."
I don'tsee her doing anything to help those people. It sounds to me like she takes thiscountry for granted. We should ship her off to Iraq or Afghanistan and show herwhat her rights are then. If you ask me, Thomas Jefferson would be disappointedto see this article. I say, how dare you, CharlotteA.?
