War Between the States veterans at Gettysburg, 1913.
So I was in a gun store the other day after dropping Rosey off at work and in addition to window shopping (the only kind of shopping I can afford these days) I was eavesdropping on the conversations which of course was all about politics and the portents of evil in the next Obama administration.
I listened idly until one guy piped up about what he expected to be fratricidal hostilities. Everybody got quiet. I then offered this comment: "You know, we're about to reinvent a class of Americans that hasn't been seen in almost a hundred years."
"What's that?" the counterman asked.
"Civil war veteran," I answered.
I was reminded of that conversation when I saw this post by Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit: "New Obama Flag Looks Eerily Like Blood-Stained Walls at Benghazi Consulate>"
Talk about poor timing…The Obama Campaign recently released their perfected version of the US flag.You can purchase your O-flag at the Obama Campaign website for $35.
If the image looks familiar it could be because the red stripes resemble the bloody Benghazi hand prints. The bloodstained walls at the US consulate revealed that the US officials were dragged to their death by peaceful protesters terrorists.

It’s hard to know what’s more offensive… That they desecrated the flag, or that they’re pushing a product that reminds Americans of the slaughter in Benghazi?
Personally, I find such a bloody-handed flag to be refreshingly, if unintentionally, honest on the part of collectivists and would suggest that if you want one you'd better get it now because I'm sure the offer will be pulled down shortly on order of Obamanoid Central Command in Chicago.
