Old Glory Does Not Look Happy

Friday, August 14, 2015
Below is an image of the U.S. flag, as it was being raised in Havana this morning.

It literally looks sad, reluctant and caught in the ropes.

It was not gallantly streaming.

Perhaps it is ashamed of the immoral conditions the Obama Administration accepted from the Castro dictatorship.

Perhaps it is saddened that the Obama Administration has relegated the pursuit of freedom and democracy in Cuba.

Perhaps it is disappointed that Cuba's courageous democracy leaders, those who share its principles, were shunned by the Obama Administration.

Perhaps it saw U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's deceitful, self-absorbed wink to the cameras as it was being hoisted.

Perhaps it knows that it is being forced to accept a bad deal.
