On thing the military has taught me is that when the flag is waving, it's a symbol of our country, but when it is used in protests or is being
burned, it's merely a piece of cloth. You don't have to be offended by a person's freedom of speech.
And for Obama's use of Red White and Blue instead of the flag, remember it's just a cloth. What it represents is the ideals. you don't need to have
a million flags just to show that you have as much patriotism as the next guy.
And well I just studied the picture and it shows the colors, but also a sunrise. It's simply portraying "change" as in a "New Dawn" for America.
don't see anything Unpatriotic about it.
