USA flags made in the USA should be made of hemp. Just like the one Betsy rolled out.

FloydA: gfid: FloydA: nekom: Here's a good question:  Who the hell cares?


1) Flag makers
2) People who live in communities where flag manufacturing plants are located and work in support industries
3) People who produce the material from which flags are made
4) People who live in the communities where those materials are produced and work in support industries
5) People who think "patriotism" should be more than just empty rhetoric and misspelled protest signs

6) People who like feelgood legislation instead of having Congress tackle issues that actually affect us as a country.

I dunno.  I was under the impression that the GOP's promised "laser-like focus on jobs" might include something like, for instance, jobs.

Was I naive about that?


The fact that you actually listen to what either Dumbocrat or Repube says they are going to do is naive.

If capitalism and free trade are things American's value - then it seems we should buy whatever flags are the best.
If government regulation and close-trade policies are things American's value - then we should require flags to be made in America.

I don't care one way or another - but I always find it odd how many American's take pride in saying they value X while actually supporting laws in direct contrast to Y.  Particularly around things like Freedom and Free Speech.  We say it's great; but so many of us support laws that go against them.  Which again, I'm fine with - but American's just can't seem to accept they DON'T ACTUALLY want freedom.

What is wrong with saying we value the combination of the two approaches that achieves that best balance of results (however you want to define those), especially in a world of an unlevel playing field of worker rights and regulations?
