Okay, so overtime I say puffy clouds or blue sky it rains within the hour. So let's see if reverse psychology works on mother nature

The Khon Kaen City Government sets a fine example

I have travelled to many countries and seen the national flags of those countries always flown proudly.
As a kid we lived in areas across the eastern and central U.S. where many immigrants lived and as well as the flag of their original countty people , PROUDLY flew the Stars and Stripes. I find it bad enough that a business would display a dirty or torn flag, but when government bodies fly a flag that should be retired and respectfully destroyed I really get confused. I see dirty and\or torn flags all over Isaan and other parts of the country at train stations and other government facilities. Is this how the Thai Government sets the example for its' citizens? It certainly appears to be the case.
