American Flags You May Not Fly at Home in Arizona

Jan Brewer may not have the stomach for Circumcision Certificates, but she just signed a bill that allows patriotic citizens to escape the tyranny of homeowner associations:

Current law overrides any [association] rules when it comes to the U.S. flag, the flags of any branch of the military, the state flag, the POW-MIA flag and the flag of any Indian nation. The new law will add the Gadsden flag to that protected list, that yellow flag with the drawing of a coiled rattlesnake and the phrase “Don’t Tread on Me.”

That yellow teabagger flag, to be precise.

Everybody knows it, but the chickenshit teabaggers aren’t admitting it:

Backers say the new law simply recognizes the historical role of the Gadsden flag during the American Revolution.

And conveniently ignores every other Revolutionary flag featured in the John Adams title sequence. We particularly like that Skull & Crossbones flag that slips by quickly, and would be proud to fly it next door to a yellow coiled snake.

New law: HOAs can’t keep out campaigns [Arizona Daily Star, via ThinkProgress]

Heh – this ought to be amusing, given that it’s pitting HOAs (which are teatard-central anyways) against government regulations on the use of private property. Where’s the popcorn? ;)

Hey, Here’s a fun fact. Michelle Bachmann’s 28 year old son, Lucas, is a psychiatric resident at the U of Conn.

I guess he got a good start at home.

@Benedick: You mean he’s there as a doctor or as a patient? Either is equally believable, though I’m leaning towards patient for obvious reasons.

@¡Andrew!: Doctor, according to a blurb I just read. Same blurb said Playgirl wants to, um, spread him.

Calling baked: never registered how much I liked your comment re La Palin: “dunno . . . maybe she’s molting” Perfect! Up to your usual standard.

@nojo: He turned them down. Didn’t want pictures of the three-piece set floating about when he was in practice. Might inflame the patients.

The Gadsden Flag has been my favorite American flag for 50 years, and I will not let a bunch of moronic teabaggers so easily hijack such a potent symbol. While I don’t pledge allegiance to ANY flag, I do proudly wave my tiny Gadsden Flag in the face of the teabaggers in support of progressive causes. If nothing else, it bugs them to see their symbol used by their opponents.
