Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 14, 2014

Ingloriously crammed between the summer's other two big holidays -- that would be Memorial Day and Labor Day -- Flag Day doesn't tend to get much respect. Perhaps things would be different if we got the day off, or if there was any kind of actual glamour surrounding the holiday, perhaps the advent of a signature Flag Day snack or cocktail? Or maybe Flag Day just needs something simple -- like a brief history -- to help contextualize it against the backdrop of summer's better-known holidays. Every June 14, the United States doesn't just celebrate the flag as a single entity; it actually celebrates the adoption of the flag itself, which happened nice and early in American history on June 14, 1777. Basically, Flag Day is the birthday of the American flag. Please don't celebrate with candles and cake.

[...] I've flown the flag every year since I had a home of my own as my parents did before me.

"If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all neighbors."

Frank Sinatra (1915-1998)

Typical con. Hide behind the flag and accuse those who disagree with you of not being patriotic. That strategy proved to be an effective tool for selling the Iraq war, right MSGT?
Happy Flag Day to those who love America. The rest of you can go to hell.
