It seems that a day doesn’t go by without someone being offended at seeing the symbol of this great nation flying on a flag pole or being worn on a tee-shirt, or perhaps as a decal on a window, and of course because of that very symbol that person, organization or group has every right to be offended, and in that lies the irony, that those who are offended have that "right" because of that symbol.

And so when a young 24-year-old Marine is ordered by political bureaucrats to remove “Old Glory” outside his Florida home, that tells us all we need to know, in this brave new world of political correctness, and where  America is at today.

Gregory Schaffer, an active duty U.S. Marine when told to remove the flag said; “It’s sad. It’s sad that we have to go through that just to fly a flag.”

He continued, “It’s disgusting that anybody should have to go through that. I fought for the flag, now I’m paying for the flag.”

The town’s building department told reporters that the flagpole is actually considered a structure, and must be removed since Schaffer did not obtain a permit for it.

Perhaps the bureaucrats before issuing statements to reporters about the definition of what constitutes a “structure” would be wise to simply shut up!
