Un-American American flag makers

Via Geoffrey Allan Plauche, this story about how several legal jurisdictions in the U.S.A. have laws requiring that flags bought or flown there must be made in the U.S.A.  While Geoffrey points out the crass, un-American motivations behind these acts, maybe it will help stem the cheap displays of irrational sentimentalism one sees everywhere since 9/11.

But are they enforced

unfortunately, all of these laws are unconstitutional, and not just in that theoretical sense. Forbidding flags made in another country is essentially setting foreign policy, which states cannot engage in. THE SCOTUS had ruled numerous times on this issue already.
