Great news! It's no longer against all the rules to hang an American Flag in your work place in America.
Man, I never thought we'd get rid of that old chestnut…
[W]hen McLucas arrived at work at a Texas hospital last Friday, she was stunned to be told that the Stars and Stripes she had hung in her office in advance of Memorial Day were offensive, and that the flag had been removed.
"I got into work, I was met by my supervisor and told that there had been multiple complaints, that people found the flag very offensive and it had been taken down," McLucas told FOXNews.com.
But, wait! Don't break into uncontrollable tears over how badly the American-citizen minority is being oppressed in this country! There's a happy ending, I swear!
Kindred issued a press release stating, "Kindred Hospital Mansfield has a great deal of appreciation for the service that many of our employees and their families have given to their country. We honor our veterans and active military through a variety of benefits and service programs. This was an isolated incident between two employees that we are working to resolve amicably."
The statement went on to explain: "The disagreement was over the size of the flag and not what it symbolized. We have invited the employee to put the flag back up."
Wooo hooo! America finally wins something!
Take that, President Obama! And take that also, Speaker Pelosi! And also Secretary Clinton should take some of that, too! And if there's some of that left over, it should probably go to that Noam Chomsky person, whoever that is!
Really, though, how stupid was that hospital supervisor? Incredibly stupid or the stupidest? Not letting an American citizen in America — let's not even get into the fact that it's Texas, specifically — hang an American flag in her own workspace?
That is without doubt the dumbest thing ever, only slightly beating the second dumbest thing ever, which is turning this office squabble into a national news story.
