Nah art is not imitating life. Lack of research is exhibiting the traps of ignorance.
This wasn't taken during the pledge of allegiance like the chain email claimed, it was taken during the singing of the national anthem and at a
""You're standing with your arms folded and Hillary's got her hand on her heart," she said, adding that she received so many of these emails
she is sick of them.
Obama shook his head and smiled.
"This was not during the pledge of allegiance," Obama said of the picture taken at Senator Tom Harkin's, D-Iowa, annual steak fry and first
published by Time. "A woman was singing the Star Spangled Banner when that picture was taken.
"I was taught by my grandfather that you put your hand over your heart during the pledge, but during the Star Spangled Banner, you sing!" Obama
So was I.
We always stood for the song and sang, but pledged during the pledge of allegiance. I have seen many do this. However according to United States Code,
36 USC Sec. 301 during patriotic and national observances:
United States Code, 36 USC Sec. 301, states that during the playing of "The Star Spangled Banner" (United States National Anthem) when the flag
is displayed, everyone except those in uniform should stand at attention while facing the flag with their right hand over their heart. Those in
attendance who are not in uniform should remove any headwear with their right hand and hold it at their left shoulder, with their right hand held over
their heart. Individuals in uniform should show the military salute during the first note of the anthem and stay in this position until the last note.
If the flag is not displayed, people in attendance should face the music and respond as if the flag were present.
Does a steak fry fall under the category of "Patriotic and National Observances"?
Also none of them seem to be facing the flag. Wait...none of them are facing the flag??
CALL THE PATRIOT POLICE!!
This is from Urban legends.com regarding the chain mail and photo:
The accompanying email text reads:
Barack Hussein Obama's photo (that's his real name)... the article said he REFUSED TO NOT ONLY PUT HIS HAND ON HIS HEART DURING THE PLEDGE OF
ALLEGIANCE, BUT REFUSED TO SAY THE PLEDGE... how in the hell can a man like this expect to be our next Commander-in-Chief????
The photo, taken by Danny Frazier Wilcox for Time magazine, is authentic. An ABC News video confirms that the picture was snapped during a rendition
of the national anthem.
The claim that Obama "refused to say the Pledge" at the event is unsubstantiated. There is no record of the senator refusing to do so on any other
occasion, and there are photographs and videos showing Obama reciting the Pledge at various events.
Yuh...because he does pledge the flag.
I wish I didn't have to do this but here:
Since we're on the subject of proper patriotic behavior during the pledge, here is a photo that makes one wonder if the current President has his
heart in his stomach.
What's that about? Outraged anyone?
Unless he has a unique condition...this is not proper.
Release the hounds!!
NOW...You said you found all but Michelle with a gun.
Is there a real life situation with Obama burning a flag or praising Bin Laden with a portrait of him on the wall?
P.S. Hey guys, what the heck is a "terrorist fist-bump"?
