It's easy to forget how red a state Arizona actually is...

...until you read something like this (scroll down a bit). Yes, the Arizona state legislature has passed a law requiring that every public classroom display a flag as well as copies of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Not only that, the flags must be at least 2 ft. by 3 ft. and have been made in the U.S.

That is such a ridiculous law! And what gets me is that the posting of such things is supposed to excite or instill patriotism...I know I sure get all fired up when I walk by a random poster in the classroom...point being, most people probably won't notice them or will (once) and not feel anything...because there's nothing that seems overly inspiring about a laminated list of the bill of rights! As far as flags go...they are quite crucial, as I am always forgetting what country I'm in because of the rampant hypocricy and lipservice paid to our most precious ideals. i'm sure i'm not the only one with that problem, hence, no better way to be reminded than by laminated posters and flags (2 by 3 ft. being just the right amt. of material needed to elicit patriotism). This is funny...
