Woohoo! ‘Riba-andale! Arriba!

border and…you know, pick flags and burn fruit, or whichever way that goes.

I have to know…is Seb the one in the middle?


With all the damn rain we’ve been getting, I doubt we could burn a flag here if we tried.


Could I have some ‘snatchos with that, please?


This support of First Amendment freedoms only gives comfort and aid to our enemies.


Esteban Colberto!


I like the skinny one on the right.


Oh, goody! Now we can continue our wacky summer camp tradition where, when it gets all quiet and boring, one of the kids jumps up and yells, “Burning flag fight!” Talk about a “blaze of glory!”


Flag burning??? Damn, I thought it was fag burning — y’know, kinda like two issues in one. I better write my Reps back….

“Mexlamofascist banditos waiting for just such a signal to stream over the border”

From the white stuff all over the ground, I deduce that those evil swine are planning to smuggle industrial quantities of cocaine over the border with them. Or they could be planning to stream across the *Canadian* border and cunningly evade the barriers. Are Mexlamofascist banditos supposed to be devious enough for that? Perhaps someone could clear this up for me.




Wow. I believe SN has committed treasonous acts by exposing Dear Leader’s secret surveillance photos of al Quesadilla. Wait ’til the paste eaters get a whiff of this anti-Merkinism and display of surrender monkeyism in the Global War to Provoke Bedwetting.


OK, who else is planning to BBQ flags for the 4th? Anybody? Bueller?


Aw, you guys are not fun at all…


Well, I *was* planning to, but where’s the fun now? I think I’ll just go get an abortion instead.


Yeah, well, I’m getting an abortion AND homo nups! It’s been way too long since I’ve seen the term ‘homo nups’ on Sadly No. The wingnuts keep changing the shiny things to distract people. Mexlamofascists, flag burning, the jihadist New York Times… how can anyone keep up with all the scary bad things?!?

I’m going to go hide under my bed and eat paste now.


Thank you for the toilet paper
But your flag’s meaningless to me
Look around, we’re all people
Who needs countries anyway?

Dead Kennedys: Star and Stripes of Corruption


Gary Trudeau had the best take on the whole stupid flag thing a long, long time ago.

He opened up one of his Doonesbury strips with one panel that was nothing more than an accurate, full color drawing of an American flag.

He then went on to point out that if you were the sort of person who used old newspapers to start your barbecue in the summertime, you should prepare to find yourself considered a felon come Memorial day. And how about all that disposable paper crap they print up with flags for the Fourth of July? If you throw it away, are you a terrorist?

I’m so glad to know that our country is currently running so smoothly that our congressional reps have nothing better to worry about than whether or not people are burning flags.


Well, according to Senator Hatch (OK, not anyone we give a shit about his opinion, but still): “On the Senate floor yesterday, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said there was nothing the Senate could be doing that was more important than banning flag burning.” So, see? It is important, after all! Or not.
