    You silly goose.
    She's a democrat and it's a well known fact that democrats can do whatever they darn well please because laws and rules don't apply to them.

    Authority, authority you say . . . she don't need no steeeenkin' authority!!!!

    " you mean Obama hasn't ordered flags to fly at half mast?"

    ISIS has caught Obama with his pants around his knees so often, that by now I'm positive that there's nobody in the White House who would dare to say, "half mast" anywhere near him.
    Kinda like how hearing the phrases...
    "radical Islamic terrorist" or "mom jeans" or "but that's illegal!" will set him off.

    Well seeing as how ALL flags were ordered to be at half mast until Thursday for support of Paris/France it would seem logical that they were.

    There are specific guide lines regulating when and where the flag is to be flown at half mast, and who is has the authority to order it done.

    Unfortunately, these days it seems that many public officials are completely ignorant of these guide lines, as is, apparently, Governor Brown.

    But the truth of the matter is that a state governor does in deed have the authority under certain circumstances, BUT THIS ISN'T ONE OF THEM.

    She did not order the flags to be lowered, the feds did.

    It is referred to as a "Good faith Misunderstanding" and is covered in the Flag Code.

    The Governor CAN, in the event of the death a present or former official of the government of any State, territory, or possession of the United State for example, proclaim that the National flag shall be flown at half-staff.

    Fun fact; According to a lot of sources, the flag is lowered to make room for an "invisible flag of death" flying above.

    The liberals are adept at coopting language and symbols. Perhaps we should do the same and adopt the Gadsden flag as the "Flag of Death!"

    The obvious remedy is to ignore the order...
