Keith reviews the U.S. Flag Code, covering the general government’s rules for proper display and treatment of Old Glory. He discusses a local controversy over a business displaying the flag inverted and the proposed Flag-Burning Amendment, the principles and history behind the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, why the flag itself is the symbol of the right to burn your flag, and why after careful consideration he no longer says the Pledge of Allegiance. Spoiler alert: Keith is not a Big Government Socialist, and almost every phrase in the pledge is false, so he would need to lie to say the pledge.
