U.S. decline seen in lack of flags flying on 9/11

September 12, 2013 

I saw only one flag flying in my ’hood on Sept. 11. Mine. Really? On Patriot Day? Oh, never mind. I forgot. This is a day of service, not of remembrance. My bad. I can’t wait for the 9/11 sales in 2021. There’s bound to be some great deals on the soul of a once great nation.

Goodbye, sweet America, I hardly knew ye.
