As American As…

Why does this sentence always end with something decidedly not American? Apple pie? No. Mom? Come on now. Baseball? Sorry, we can’t even claim that one.

Okay, but certainly there’s nothing more American that the good old Red, White, and Blue. We OWN those colors. What other country’s flag is red, white, and blue? Well there’s North Korea, for one. And Russia. France. Cuba. Also Cambodia, Laos, Liberia, Australia, Chile, Czech Republic, Iceland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Panama, Samoa, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United Kingdom.

Just something to think about next time you see a “These Colors Don’t Run” bumper sticker, whatever that means.
