I'm pretty sure this is Obama's fault?

Some patriots will be along to explain why!

The "Made in China" label on that must be enormous.

Pretty sure no other countries are vying to fly the world's largest American flag.

/Well, except China. They'll do anything for a superlative.

Well, subby used the right verb, anyway. Pictures and things are hung, people are hanged.

This reminds me of an incident at my former employer a couple of years ago. They took donations to buy a giant farking American flag and hung it on the side of the building. It was several stories tall when hung horizontally, blanketing most of the side of the building and as an added bonus blocking the windows of many cubicle dwellers. The very morning it was first put on display, a major storm with high winds hit. Ropes holding the flag to the building promptly snapped and down the flag went. An employee running out to his car at the time was covered and entangled by the falling flag as the storm intensified. A couple security guards ended up pulling knives and slashing through the fabric to free the trapped employee. The giant and no doubt expensive flag was a total loss.

America, fark yeah.

You say that like NYC is part of the US and not part of the Peoples Republic of NY. I would imagine there would be outrage for flying a foreign flag of such a nation as the US in NYC.

I drove over the George Washington Bridge two months ago.

It was a three--hour traffic jam going in, and a three--hour traffic jam coming out.

Didn't get much better until halfway through new Jersey.
