4. the operative word for the person who thought up this great idea............

is "think", they didn't. Yes it is hubris.

I can fly 4 flags from my porch; they are the US Flag (flown on all holidays), the Marine Corps Flag (flown on Memorial Day, Veterans Day and the Marine Corps Birthday) the Polish Flag (Flown on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, my great uncle, born in Poland, fought for the US in WWII and was killed in France, I had 2 other uncles who also served, one being wounded twice) and the flag of Ireland (flown on Memorial Day, Veterans Day and St. Patrick's Day, my grandfather 1st generation American, fought in WWI for the US and my father was in the Marine Corps for 14 years serving in Korea).

There has been thought by me on how these are flown & when they are flown, the US Flag is always flown the highest.
