Your Flag Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore

This has been bothering me for years now.

It's the little enamel flags that everybody wears, from the President to the lowliest member of the House. Why--can't they remember that they're Americans? I can understand the upper echelon getting a bit fuzzy on the whole thing, what with their recent moves to keep their secret wiretapping powers...

I remember when our national leaders actually had combat awards to wear in their lapels. Truman, McCarthy, Johnson, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Nixon (Kerry, MCain, Murtha, Cleland, et. al.)

There was a time when the Commander in Chief actually knew the customs and courtesies of the U.S. military, and didn't have to wear a phoney little pin to feign patriotism.
