“Scenes seen” on Memorial Day walk under the effects of an endorphin high, part 2.

Yesterday, Americans — of all nations of origins, ethnicity, cultures, backgrounds, ages, shapes, sizes,  and faiths — celebrated Memorial Day.

On Memorial Day, patriotic Americans lower the national colors to half staff until noon to honor warriors who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their nation.

Unfortunately, there were others that did not. And if one ascribes to the lunatic rantings of some KKK-like individuals who would have those violators leave the country for not valuing American traditions. If it’s OK to suggest that people should leave the country for not standing for the National Anthem; what’s the difference for violating Flag protocol?

That would be a harsh penalty for those improperly displaying these American flags yesterday morning:
