Small wonder

I ran to the local grocery store this morning as we were out of a few staples, like milk, eggs and bacon. As I walked in the door, I saw a small display with American flags for sale. Remembering that I could not find one for love or money last Independence Day, I grabbed one. (Our current “indoor” flag has taken up residence in Sweet Daughter’s room now that she has learned the Pledge of Allegiance.)

As soon as I got home, I started to peel off the barcode so I could get rid of the “Made in China” sticker when I saw this.

Especially after seeing all the “Made in China” Gadsden flags in Charlotte, I cheered. I will be returning tomorrow to buy the rest of them. Just out of general principal.


  1. That's a small victory, but it's gotta be the most amazing thing I've seen all day.

  2. Seriously. I'm going to buy every last one of them, and tell the manager why. It'll be just a drop in the bucket, but every little bit helps. Sort of like how I wouldn't let Shorter Half bring his Jamesons into the house while it was owned by a French company. Contrary to rumor, I did not forbid him from buying it. I just wouldn't let him pollute the house with it. *grin*
