Monday Mash-Up

I don't have a flag to display on this Flag Day, but whenever I come across one, I'll revere it with a sardonic earnestness.

And staying on the topic of fake patriotism, Jobsanger worries about our intentions now that mineral deposits have been discovered in Afghanistan.
There will now be a brand new surge of patriotism regarding this war.  Of course they'll hide the true reason and say it is for self defense or to save the Afghan people, but now we know it is for the same reason we invaded Iraq -- dollars
We've lost a lot of people over there, and spent way too much money as it is.  This new wrinkle should give us more reason to get the hell out of Afghanistan.

Drones (like those used in Afghanistan) might be flying over Laredo someday. 
The tiniest are small enough to fly through a house window.
I don't know if I want those unmanned planes described that way when we've seen some unfortunate house-meets-projectile incidents.
