The Froth of July

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Any justice for Sunny Sheu?

How about Donald Siegelman?

John Kiriakou?

At least President Hopey's DOJ is working out nicely for the people who paid for his election.
As head of the Securities and Exchange Commission for the past four years, Mary Schapiro failed to win a major civil action against any Wall Street executive connected to what may be the worst financial fraud in history, the subprime-mortgage scam that led to the 2008 crash.

As head of the Justice Department’s criminal division for the past four years, Lanny Breuer failed to accomplish the same with criminal action. And now both are headed back over to the other side: deep-pocketed firms that earn their keep largely from Wall Street. In Schapiro’s case, that’s Promontory Financial Group, which advises financial firms on regulation; in Breuer’s, it’s Covington & Burling, a major law firm that defends financial clients.

What, the National Anthem on a baseball bat isn't enough?

How about some Jimi Hendrix...

I never understood why we are supposed to swear fealty to a banner. A republic, I get. But a piece of colorful cloth?

Flag bikinis remain popular, at any rate.
