Legislation and morality

Legislation is not morality, and morality certainly isn't legislation. The distinction must be made. Otherwise politicos wrap themselves in the flag AND hide behind the most convenient faith/moral code they can find. Arguing over morality keeps us honest. We're better when we verbally defend our ideas to people who don't necessarily share our beliefs.

Wrapped in the flag

When a politico wraps himself in the flag, double check your liberty and count on finding brown stains afterwards.

You should beware the politician who wraps himself in faith and the minister who wraps himself with the flag.

Flag in my yard

About an hour ago the local Boy Scouts put a flag up in my yard.

It's a service I'm happy to pay for. The Scouts do it for all the national hollidays.

And I don't have to worry about maintaining a flag.

I'd probably think differently if it was a commerical enterprise. But it's the Boy Scouts, so of course I approve.
