In 2025, don't be surprised if a Chinese flag is placed on the moon.
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with this idea of opening a restaurant back in Indiana on a little pond. The guests would order their dinner and then take a little boat out with a colored flag on the front of it. When the matching color of the flag on their boat went up on a flag pole, their dinner was ready!
This is said to us, even as this counterfeit president has legalized the Confederate Flag in Mississippi.

Ironically, when I've asked my straight friends to join me in hanging a rainbow flag, they answer, 'But someone might think we're gay,' not realizing that is exactly the point. To be mistaken for the oppressed is to momentarily become the oppressed.
The American flag is an enduring symbol of liberty, democracy, and justice. It is fitting that the House act to protect it as we approach our nation's birthday, and as our men and women in uniform rally behind it in Iraq's battlefields.
On what rests the hope of the republic? One country, one language, one flag!
South Carolina, as a matter of compromise, displays the Confederate flag on a flagpole in front of the state capitol.
