A Texas city council has voted to ban American flags from a local cemetary. Why? Because these people want to keep the cemetery free of "clutter." That's right... according to these "leaders," the American flag is "clutter" and cannot be placed beside a tombstone. It appears common sense and respect for veterans have gone out the window.

Anyone incapable of seeing the coming train wreck is unfit to run for office.

Simple things like this are going to spark unrest of the gen-pop (sic)

City council says no US flags in cemetery

Person says "fuck you" and plants flag.

City Council orders PD to "stop person" for putting a flag on a grave.

Three possible outcomes:

1: PD says "fuck you" to city council

2: Stupid shit ensues and PD does enforce the "law" and it ends up as a shooting match

3: Citizens pussy out and everyone is happy and we all die just a little more.

It's like I have said before.

There is a time for some very serious house cleaning.

Starting at the little cracks in the floor of local .gov, all the way to the head office.

I hope it will get done soon, things are starting to smell.

They didn't ban US flags.  They banned all flags and other items that they thing clutter up the cemetery.  

As reported by KHOU.com in Houston, the city council in Mineral Wells, Texas voted to ban the display of flags and other items such as teddy bears from grave sites. Flags are now only allowed during the two weeks around Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
