There is a commemorative plate and now there is a commemorative flag. It is definitely commemorative end of story.

Come on man get a grip, this is plain and simple the right sensationalism. This is strictly a way to give a biased view of Pres. Obama. Anyone within a right mind would not take this with a grain of salt..where do these people come from? Get a grip.

It's a bastardization of the American flag. For those of you who don't "get it", read. Learn.

And for those of you that don't care, shame on all of you.

I feel sorry for those of you that have never known the feeling of patriotism. Of what it is truely like to be an American. For those of you that don't have a clue, you get what you deserve.

This thread is nothing more than a cheap attempt for sensational partisan rancor.


Ok I don't like Obama's policies, but....

1) All the evidence points to this being some piece of crap created by someone who realized that the rabid followers of Obama will buy any garbage with his likeness on it. I think if there is a market for it, go ahead and sell it. I could wish he hadn't made the flag look that way but...
2) No evidence Obama sanctioned this. If you want to attack him do it for all the things he really has done, like too many czars or pushing health care reform that isn't going to help anyone but the insurance companies.
3) I find all of those other flags tacky and a little offensive, except the all green and white one as it's soo different to be a non issue.
4) The half US and half Canadian one I find bad as it insults two countries flags. I think the creator was trying to show unity between the two nations but it comes of as tacky.

so far......

11 pages of arguing over a novelty item.


I recently saw a novelty $1,000,000.00 dollar bill in a mini mart, should we consume a week arguing about how those are going to be replacing the real dollars.

-only if Obamas face is on it i guess, huh?

Excellent examples of the alteration/mis-use. Can't/won't agree with any of them.

Of course, this is just my humble opinion, some of you would feel very happy using it as toilet paper.

Rock on, you fools.

-didn't mean you exile. . . . -

As a patriot and a vet. this flag is wrong. I might not be all for Obama, but that is not why I don't like that flag. You put anyone's face on there and it will still be wrong. To me it's just as bad as flying another country's flag over ours while in the states. It's a respect thing that most people have long forgotten about. If I would personaly see someone flying this flag or any of those other ones I would burn them in that persons yard. That to me would be me repaying their disrespect to me and the country by disrespecting them in my way.

And for everyone that thinks this is just about Obama you need to find yourself and realize that the flag is a symbol of freedom, and a rememberance for all of those that have fallen in combat since the beginning of this country.

If the guy who made that flag would've just put his face in the middle of a plain flag like the one in the dog poop in an earlier post, he'd still get business and it wouldn't bother the true patriots of the states.

I don't think people respect the government much these days because the government doesn't respect the people these days.

This flag of Obama quit simply violates US law as it is an alteration of our flag. That is just the truth of the matter. That being said, Bush signed a flag and I am sure other presidents have on the campaign trail. Those are still illegal actions. As such they should have been punished.

This being a national symbol of our democracy we should all agree that it be held with the upmost reguard. I have no problem with Obama flags as long as it isn't in the form of our official one. (I probably shouldn't say this, but I would buy one and burn it to show my support of there right to make it, and mine to burn it.)

I have very little respect for him and a lot of our preceding presidents have disappointed me to. I am 22 and have worked hard for everything I got, my house, my car, my job. I pay my bills on time and don't use credit cards. Now I make less than $30,000 a year. So I guess I just don't take kindly to those who spend thereselves into debt, and then ask there politicians to take a penny from my back pocket and give it to them.

So when I look at an American Flag I want to see the stars and stripes. I don't want to see anyones picture on it, not even Jesus Christ. And I'm I a christian.

Our Flag stands for freedom and a whole lot more, lets not trample on it like the politicans that already trample on what it stands for.

Replacing the American Flag on Air Force One with the Obama Logo has had me upset from DAY 1. I thought that Air Force One was owned by the taxpayers and available for the sitting president TO USE! Did any group of American taxpayers VOTE on changing the logo on Air Force One? If so, there has got to be a group VOTING to get the American FLAG back on the 'Obama-mobile'! PLEASE, for America's sake, let's get the American Flag back on Air Force One ~ NOW!!!
