I'm sure this
is a concept with which everyone here is familiar. My fear is of a similar occurrence.
I was speaking specifically about bumper stickers. Driving home yesterday, I noticed a gigantic semi-truck behind me flying two flags from either side
with a giant field of thick stripes and a few stars on airbrushed blue behind it on the grill. As it was looming behind me it struck me (not the
truck, the idea) that the man driving that truck would probably consider anything that's red, white, and blue with a star on it an American Flag,
regardless of how it's displayed as per the legal codes.
Examples I've found:
As an aside, I'm new around here so I'm not entirely sure how to get images into my posts directly. Sorry
Back to the topic at hand: I understand that these are all just designs, as well, but we're talking about people who get their power from the weight
of words and misinterpretation. They can interpret documents to mean whatever they want and if that means conditioning Americans to salute something
that vaguely resembles their old flag, after having given that new flag any number of authorities and positions, then they're not above exploiting
Not that this is a master plan. More like an afterthought once 9-11 was already in motion.
