    Drudge had up for a while that the US may plan on dipping the flag...that US officials discussed whether to dip the flag to a foreign dignitary..

    Then it was taken down ..

    I wondered how Obama was going to bow with that pole up his ass...
    Yes..this camera is heavy.

    I really liked the Chariots of fire bit. I am looking forward to seeing Sir Paul McCartney perform!

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    I thought the whole opening ceremony was a little goofy and incomprehensible.

    The beds all over the stage, and the trip through the history of British music was pretty strange. It looked like something they just threw together. It was cool seeing the inventor of the world wide web though.

    I thought it was a hoot.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I'm sure that they didn't intend it this way, but the narrative basically traced Britain's decline from an industrial superpower to a welfare state. The tribute to the NHS and the history of British pop music was a huge step down from the Industrial Revolution, the globe-spanning empire, the greatest naval power the world had ever seen and the legacy of the English-speaking world. Britain led the world for centuries, and devolved into an entertainment conglomerate with lousy health care.

    It was sad, both because of the trajectory of decline, and the fact that the promoters didn't have enough pride in their own nation to realize it.
