Flags at Half-Staff....Again
Driving home from work I noticed that once again the flags are at half-staff and it occurred to me that I can't remember the last time I saw them flying high at the top of he pole. I know it's a symbolic gesture and that right now it's because of the events in California, but it just seems to me that it is being over used. I is meant to symbolize national morning and it use to be that it was reserved for when a president or other notable public figure died or when there had been a national tragedy on the scale of 9/11 or Pearl Harbor.
I'm not trying to diminish the tragedy that is a bunch of jihadist killing 14 people on our own soil, but lowering the symbol of our nation in response seems to indicate that if you succeed in getting in a good punch, we are just gonna tear-up and need a big ol' group hug.

While workplace violence is abhorrent and a tragedy by any measure, the president is clearly trying to use this incident to further his anti-gun agenda.
Oh yeah - the Obama admin has still not said this is Islamic Terrorism or a terrorist attack - go figure.

Due to persistent global warming and workplace violence, flags will be flown at half mast for the rest of Obamas presidency.
