The flag story continues…

Posted September 21st, 2012 by Jim Ettwein

Where will this end? Self-centered narcissism is so ugly. According to U.S. Code Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8(g), titled “Respect for the flag,” “The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature. Seems clear to me.

When it seems like a good thing to usurp our national symbol with one’s own image one should re-examine priorities. And now there’s a new campaign to show stars and other people putting their hands over their hearts in an ersatz pledge, replacing the pledge of allegiance to our flag, a pledge of allegiance to Obama. This story just gets stranger and stranger. rr

    This is all part of destroying our Republic by constant small steps.

    If they can water down the sanctity of our flag, – if they can force government rules [like ObamaCare birth control] on churches, then they can start attacking the very notion of who is a citizen, – who can vote, – and what the very definition of government should be.

    This man has proven time and time again that he does not respect the flag, our Country, the Constitution and the vey people that he was elected to represent. Do you think that he ever flew the flag at his Chicago residence near hi friend and confidants, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn, the radical flag buring terrorists from the seventies.
    This desecration of the flag should be an issue in this campaign. The Romney/Ryan camp take this opportunity to wave the flag that we love, respect and the flag that so many have made the ultimate sacrifice.
