The flags were disrespected.

So much for 'recycle' and 'change'.



Personal note - a few years back we went to the Veterans Day ceremonies at Arlington Cemetary. We were given little flags to wave. I still have mine, along with the program leaflet and some pictures we took, tucked away in a waterproof bag. It's the kind of thing that you pass down to your children.


Like I've been saying, if you have some evidence that this was because of some collective decision by the democrats, please, please share that with us. That way we'll know that you aren't some gullible simpleton who is easily manipulated. Otherwise, that assumption has to be made.

Hahahahaha...and my favorite part is where right after you say that the story is true, you tell us that you were getting the information from Fox. Heil Cavuto!

God Bless America...

This is what you might expect from people that have no respect for this country unless they are in control,when all else fails blame the other guy.
They have admitted the flags were in the trash but someone else did it to make them look bad.I am embaresed for you if this is the only excuse that they can come up with,no way to prove it either way but the flags were still in the trash at the DEM convention,SAD!!!!

I don't get why this is a big deal....

Sounds like mole hills into mountains to me.

Yes I love your sig!!!!! I haven't heard it put better before. Biden has some amazing things to say and that is one of them.


I agree, JB says some amazing things, like this...

"You cannot go into a Dunkin Donuts or a 7-Eleven unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

Or this on his running mate...

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Consider this, at the University of Delaware, Biden was 506th out of 688 classmates. In law school he was 76th out of 85 classmates. The law school dean described him as an academic "disappointment" but praised his "confidence," "general physical appearance" and "general speaking ability".

Here's what I can tell you about JB with absolute certainty. Some point between now and the 4th of November, Joe Biden will stick both feet in his mouth and you will hear a chorus of "UH's and OH's as BHO attempts to defend his running mate. Trust me, the wheels will come off of this thing and it aint gonna be pretty.

You republicans are so full of it.

Here is a statement from the Democratic National Convention Committee.

"Stories circulating about flags at the Democratic National Convention are false. We distributed more than 125,000 American made flags at the Convention - the flags removed from Invesco field were intended for other events and taken without permission. It's disappointing that someone would take American flags without authorization and then falsely describe how they were being used. We have the utmost respect for the American flag, and it's sad to see them being used for a cheap political stunt."

The flags were not going to be thrown away, some were going to be used for other events and others donated. You idiots just stole American flags for propaganda purposes. Talk about egg on your face, how pathetic.
McCain should be arrested for distributing stolen property. Next time get your facts straight before you post something so stupid.

It doesn't have to be a 'collective decision'. All the individuals there made their own decisions to not-recycle and to disrespect the flag. No one has to get in front of them and say 'let's get together and do something stupid'.

This just shows the general mentality of those who attended the function.

Or are you saying that democrats aren't capable of thinking for themselves and they need 'group think' to do anything?


That way we'll know that you aren't some gullible simpleton who is easily manipulated. Otherwise, that assumption has to be made.

Gullible simpleton who is easily manipulated, eh?

:shk: Backatchya :shk:

It's obvious that the INDIVIDUALS who went to Obama's coronation couldn't care less about recycling and definately didn't care about the flags.

Lovely bunch.

1 - considering you believe the DNC, you really should be careful who you call 'idiots'.

2- no one on this site stole any flags - so for you to say 'you idiots just stole American flags' ... that's pathetically false.

Please explain how so? How do you know this wasn't a decision made by a maintainence employee at the stadium? Please tell me.

Secondly, this nonsense:

They did? And you could provide proof that this was the individual decision of everyone there? Do you have, you know, the ballots that leave a record of their decision? Or even a media story to verify your account of how things happened?

Yeah. You know what? They all got together after the convention and were asked, "what should we do about these unused flags?" And you know what? They must've all voted to trash them. In your world that's the only thing that could possibly explain it.

How so? I didn't see anything in your response. Maybe I missed something, but you seem to think you threw some brilliantly witty thing in my face and I've looked over your post several times and my response is still the same: shoulder shrug.

So what? The whack jobs saved 12,000 flags! How many jobs have they saved? How many lives were sacrificed by these same people in Iraq? Is this supposed to make them saints now?

Before you talk out of your @$$ again, you could benefit from a history lesson...

FDR (DEMOCRAT) led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us; Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost ... an average of 112,500 per year.

Truman (DEMOCRAT) finished that war and started one in Korea. North Korea never attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost ... an average of 18,334 per year.

John F. Kennedy (DEMOCRAT) started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us.

Johnson (DEMOCRAT) turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost ... an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton (DEMOCRAT) went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

So evidently. we should have done nothing after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor? Oh, and how did FDR "lead us" into WW2? You do know it was the Germans who declared war on the US, I take it, a few days after Pearl Harbor. And yet it was FDR who "lead us" into WW2? I'd love to hear the tortured logic on that one.

Wrong again. This was an action by the U.N. which the U.S. participated. It started after North Korea invaded the South, disregarding the U.N. Decision that the 38th parrallel should be the dividing line. There is absolutely no way the war was "started" by Truman. This demonstrates an ignorance of history.

Wow. Wrong yet again. The Viet Nam war began many years before we got involved as the French Indo-China war, and the first American involvement was directed by Dwight Eisenhower, a republican president.

You should make an effort to know what you're talking about before posting things you characterize as fact.

Since when did flags become holy relics? Why is burning flags super evil? It's just fabric! Sorry, this isn't a big deal to me. Sure recycling is good and all, but I am sure we can afford making/buying new flags (so it's okay if we throw some or 12 thousand of them away). Or maybe we could have given them away to African countries, like we do the jerseys of loosing super bowl teams

What's this all about? Flags?!

www.youtube.com...

That's a good take on this flag business.

Meanwhile, the biggest mortgage lenders in the US have been taken over by the government (oh my god, it's creeping socialism) and everyone is worried about flags...

I'm not on either side, just take my running commentary with good humor

So happy you know your history. Unlike you I don't live in the past. I live in the present and live for the future. So save your little history lesson for some one who really cares.

When someone uses something as trivial as this hoping to take some focus off the neo-con screw ups, you need to stop trying so hard. Saving flags will not save America so save your time...

Lay off the CAPSLOCK.
Thank you.
Now Back to our regularly scheduled programming "Neocon Nazi's make a mountain out of a molehill.........AGAIN".



FYI, waving a flag doesn't make you patriotic. Neither does chanting "USA USA USA".
In case you haven't read it, the Neocons stole these flags for propoganda. They were to be used at other Dem events.

Edited to add: It is inherently UN-American to tell people you disagree with to leave the U.S. In fact it's more like (DING! DING! DING!) Nazi Fascism.
