There's a sure way to avoid scandal: don't do scandalous shit!

Ok, +Cindy Brown​ and the rest of you who believe that the Russians are involved in the email hack, supposing that you are right, doesn't this make it even worse for Hillary Clinton?

1. It proves that the Democrats generally, not just Hillary care nothing for computer security. Given her past mistreatment of emails, I am now absolutely certain that all our national secrets will be hacked.

2. How do you make the case that you should be trusted with foreign policy when you just announced that you yourself and the top officials of your party played right into the hands of a foreign country? Not that Donald Trump is trustworthy in this respect either, but it's certainly not making me want to vote for her.

3. It just got proved that you broke the law and rigged multiple elections... it's hard to make the case that your opponent is a potential dictator who will end democracy when you are deliberately rigging elections to make a less popular candidate with huge negatives win.

Per Snowden, the NSA almost certainly knows who hacked it and they have said nothing knowing how well connected Hillary is, wouldn't she have gotten proof if this was true?

When Robert Louis Deer shot up a planed parenthood to promote his anti-abortion ideology that was terrorism PERIOD.

When Timothy McVeigh blew up a federal building to promote his anti-government ideology that was terrorism PERIOD.

Angry Patriots Demand Flag Burning in Lake Tahoe

Amid all the political controversy about #FlagBurning   and freedom of speech, it's often easy to forget that burning is the proper and respectful way of disposing of a flag that has been defiled. So, ironically, this time it's the patriotic faction demanding that the flag be burnt; and the social media controversy over it on local Facebook has shown just how real life is often more complicated than it seems.

As anyone in Tahoe can tell you, #MemorialDayWeekend  is one of the busiest tourist holidays of the year. The unofficial kickoff to summer draws huge crowds every year, and just about every local business wants to be looking their best.

Angry Patriots Demand Flag Burning in Lake Tahoe

Amid all the political controversy about #FlagBurning   and freedom of speech, it's often easy to forget that burning is the proper and respectful way of disposing of a flag that has been defiled. So, ironically, this time it's the patriotic faction demanding that the flag be burnt; and the social media controversy over it on local Facebook has shown just how real life is often more complicated than it seems.

As anyone in Tahoe can tell you, #MemorialDayWeekend  is one of the busiest tourist holidays of the year. The unofficial kickoff to summer draws huge crowds every year, and just about every local business wants to be looking their best. According to local veteran KellyAnn Elder in her Facebook post, on the Sunday before Memorial Day she "noticed a maintenance worker place a mop bucket into a closet ... That in itself was no big deal. The big deal was what was crumpled up in the bucket. It was our American flag." After availing herself of +Lakeside Inn and Casino's  famously helpful staff, she got the maintnance guy to come by and he shows his total ignorance of US flag ettiquite "To my utter disbelief the man proceeded to tell me that I was correct and that he did crumple the flag and place it in the bucket'At least is wasn't touching the ground.'" Says Elder. "my sister and I even asked if we could fold the flag ourselves. He again said no."

This being Memorial Day, patriotic fervor is running high so all the local Facebook conservatives click the angry emoji and reshare and start venting vitriol in each other's comment sections as the faux pas starts to go viral and turn into a PR disaster for the local casino. Noting the customs regarding desecrated or disrespected, patriots quickly build to a demand that the flag be properly disposed of by burning as demanded by the US Flag code.

In various reshares, there is rampant speculation about the race and immigration status of the poor maintenance worker; and the usual calls of racism from the liberal side for raising the issue despite the fact that the original poster clarified in a comment on her post that it was a "toothless hillbilly" and found the assumption of it being an immigrant racist.

Others bemoan the fact that flag etiquette is not taught in schools, or say "how dare you" to the follower who clicks the "That's funny" emoji instead of like or angry, while the more liberal types like Terilyn Jo try to calm things down with a "I get that you think highly of the flag / country, but if others don't it's not helpful to react with such disgust. Maybe they don't value what you do."

By 9pm Mike Bradford, the CEO of Lakeside Inn and Casino, had contacted the Elders with an apology "I am sorry for this error, We do respect the flag and all it stands for every day and especially on Memorial Day. We fly our flag with pride, always have and always will" Comment section rumors imply that they may have already sent the flag to South Tahoe Refuse for proper disposal, while others claim it still exists and demand a cerimonal disposal. When I walked by Lakeside Inn this morning they were flying a new, clean American flag; so apparently they have at least resolved the problem with the one they were flying. (photo below)

For me, this Facebook controversy shows the best and worst of our country's love-hate relationship with its flag, patriotism, immigration, and politics in the Donald Trump era. Very few people are openly anti-flag, but somehow the issue stirs intense and revealing emotions in people. I think that the rush to proclaim the guy an immigrant is as much about our not wanting to believe that a "real american" would be disrespectful to the flag as it is about knee-jerk raceisim. It's almost easy to forgive a guy who is new to the country for being ignorant of our ways, but for a conservative it's practically unimaginable that a native would be so ignorant.

To me, it's totally plausible that the average American would be ignorant of flag etiquette in this way. I only learned it in school because I was accidentally slotted into ROTC for half a semester; but unlike my parent's generation where this was pretty much universal knowledge, Flag Etiquette isn't compulsorily taught to everyone in school anymore; and organizations like the Boy Scouts which used to serve much larger segments of the population have seen their influence dwindle due to scandals in recent years. These days, you pretty much have to be ex-military, a former flag monitor at school, or seek out the information for yourself to know. This is evidenced by the ironic fact that almost half of the commenters in the comment threads I sampled simply didn't know that ceremonial burning is the proper disposal method for a damaged flag and were politically upset or confused that self-identified patriots would be asking for such a thing.

My advice to Lakeside Inn and other local business owners is to be aware that respect for the flag runs deep in this community and to make sure that the person in charge of raising and lowering your flags is aware of at least the basics of proper etiquette in handling them (Don't drag it on the ground, make sure it's folded properly, etc.) and the fact that it can cause passionate local controversy if you fail to observe the proper customs. Given that most large organizations have a few people who are veterans or patriotic enough to care about such things, it would be a good idea to give that particular duty as an honor to someone who knows how to show respect to the flag. That kind of person is usually tickled pink to be the guy who raises the flag, and is much less likely to alienate your customers and cause bad publicity for you that way.

As I liberal, I oppose strict restrictions on treatment of the flag codified by law. I believe that it should be your right to burn the flag as an act of political speech and have been photographed wrapped in an American Flag. However, we need to come to consensus as a culture that disrespecting the flag is offensive to a large segment of the population and should NOT be done as a casual act of carelessness if only to preserve its potency for political protest.

We already have a day on the calendar (Flag Day, June 14th) to teach proper respect for the flag and I would totally support every schoolchild in America learning it in school on that day a few times throughout their schooling. I'm not a "brainwash every kid to love the flag" type; but I do have to concede that knowing how to fly a flag properly is the kind of basic information that practically every American is going to need at some point in their lifetime.
