The Perpetual Half Mast Flag

President Obama mandated that the flag fly at half mast for those killed in "the tragedy of Roseburg, OR."  At the same time, the same amount of people have been killed in the tragedy of the horrific rains in South Carolina.  Likewise, more than that number were killed in weekend violence.

But those other events (and others) serve no political purpose.  No, it is the gun deaths that deserve the greatest symbol of our nation's grief.

It used to be that the flag was lowered solely for days of mourning.  Now, it seems it is half mast more than it is flying high.

I guess that's what happens when the sitting president co-opts all he can to push his political agenda.

How pathetic.
