Blog: Eat your way to political engagement

Catherine Sleep | 4 July 2006

Liberty Cookies, a small bakery in California (where else?), has launched a new patriotic symbol – a ‘stars and stripes forever’ magnet. It is intended to represent ‘America’s belief in the infinite strength of our Democratic ideals’. Ho hum.

CEO John Rose said he believed the design “displays our trust in God to protect us when we stand up for our inalienable rights”. Funny, standing up for themselves was never something I thought Americans had a problem with. He seems to be trying to reclaim the flag from those who would only use it to represent war, although he also says he supports the troops. It’s a somewhat confused message and I think he’d be better off sticking with the cookies (which one can, of course, also purchase on eBay).
