image for Obama Orders 50 More Flagpoles, Windmills At White House

No one knows for sure when the tradition of making the United States flag, "Old Glory" available to the public and no one wishes to get back into those kind of arguments, but President Barack knows an opportunity to make some bucks when he sees it.

"A week from this Monday", the President said in his Saturday address to the nation, "we will be able to fly approximately 10,000 American flags a day that have once been flown over the White House and that will get the price down to only $95 each plus postage and handling to anyone wishing to order one and thousands of you do every month."

"However, if you want one that has also been saluted by at least two military personnel, there will be a $10 extra fee."

"In this way, everyone who wants an historic flag can get one and this should help pay off our national turd, bird got the teleprompter, our national debt and keep a great tradition alive as you can use this very flag to fly from your house on Memorial Day, Flag Day and the Fourth of July."

The President also announced that the victory garden his wife and kids have planted has offset bills and provided fresh food at their table -once the taster takes a sample. Next year, he's hoping to plant ten such gardens -once he levels the Republican Headquarters.

By 2011, the President says he plans for the White House to go solar with the removal of the dome and plans to place windmills for energy at Arlington Cemetery and all along the Potomac River plus one in the Rose Garden.

All orders for flags can be made by calling your congressman.
