Goddamnit, (some of) you Americans can get so uptight over the silliest of things sometimes.

Please dismiss this comment if the thread was just a lighthearted one, but if this is serious, then this is just concerning. The world's going to hell in a handbasket and you can only feel outraged by a dimwit politician resting their arm on American flag.

As a fellow Kiwi I too find it odd that people get upset about a bit of fabric, especially, as you say, given the state of the World...but then I guess to some people it means more than their actual country. It's only a symbol,albeit supposedly a potent one, but there are far more important things to get upset about than a silly woman and some props!

Gotta love the 2 party system and their blind followers.

Personally I hope the dems and repubs tear each other apart to such a degree that we finally have a legitmate third party.

I meant to star you, but I accidently starred reasonable, dammit!

I seriously am starting to feel like im not apart of this country anymore, thanks in large two these two parties and their idealogies.... Or maybe its the other way around. Its confusing! I just wanna make a comfortable living, mind my own business, and live my life...enough with the partisan politics!

I'm sorry, but am I the only one who finds Palin the hottest MILF ever?

I do find it funny that people can burn the American flag, drag it through the dirt and disrespect it in every way imaginable can get away with it with people saying, "That's freedom of expression" yet when a politician places her forearm on it, with no malcontent (AFAIK) does it, people are demanding a formal apology.

Peace,
FK

P.S.
Pictures saved to my spank bank.

I hate her. YEah, she's pretty but she got some uglies inside.

but I don't want her apolgizing for that or whatever - I'd mostly like to see politicians quit apologizing for little goof ups involved in being human and just go to work and fix some problems and ACT human.

The services are not the only ones entitled to the flag “We the people” (united states citizens) own the flag and as such, regardless of man woman or race, are entitled at birth and affirmed by the first amendment to do as we please with our flag. Americans burn the flag, do I like it? No, but I respect their right to do as they please with “their” flag. It is the very principle the flag stands for liberty and freedom.

“ Liberty is a concept of political philosophy and identifies the condition in which an individual has the right to act according to his or her own will. In feudal times, a liberty was an area of allodial land in which regalian rights had been waived.”
en.wikipedia.org...

Freedom is the right to act according to ones will without being held up by the power of others. From a philosophical point of view, it can be defined as the capacity to determine your own choices. It can be defined negatively as an absence of subordination, servitude and constraint.
en.wikipedia.org...(philosophy)

She's talked about how close she is to Russia, I suspect she's closer than she let's on! IF, you know what I mean!


Heh heh...

...Like, 'cause she's from Alaska and all, right?


No, because she is a major supporter of the Alaskan Separatist Movement.

Her husband is a member of the Alaskan Independent Party and she, as (a Republican) Governor, gave a keynote speech at the Alaskan Independent Party conference. The sole aim of the AIP is to secede from the Union.

(Oh, and because she spent at least two years in Moscow.)

And there is an even more sickening Palin/flag photo here.

The nerve of the woman, using the sacred flag, as a blanket!

Sounds a bit like political baiting.

Wonder where the mods are on this one?

Hmmm.


And rageing that Obama did not salute the flag is not political baiting?


Can you show me where I did that? I'd like to see that. Thank you.


Here it is, you taking a dig at Obama using Golf excuse.

Seriously, every day has probably 10 historical events. Just because it is one you happened to focus on, doesn't make it the limelight.




Doesn't seemed to have affected his time on the links much though.

Obama catches up to Bush on the golf links


President Obama has already caught up with predecessor George W. Bush in one area: Rounds of golf.

The Oval's good friend Mark Knoller of CBS News reports that Obama on Sunday played his 24th round of golf since his inauguration Jan. 20 -- matching Bush's presidential total, which he racked up in two years and 10 months.


Priorities, I guess.

I'm referring to the frothing at the mouth right wing cabal that runs rampant on this site. And BTW maybe I should report your avatar for political baiting...



I don't see any difference between them and the frothing at the mouth left wing cabal that runs rampant on this site. You should report my avatar. It's what I'd expect, especially after this thread.

A flag is rag you put up a pole...yer it has meaning and spirit in the ideal of the symbol...but for goodness sakes you clowns are unbelievable.

Children dying in the USA due to no health care, people living on streets because of corporate greed, invasions and occupation of foreign lands, rape of the land and environment, guns, gangs, rape, abortion, famine need I go on....and you are making a fuss over this?!?!?!?

Forget it.......... keep doing you nazi salute to the flag while robotically chanting the pledge of allegiance. It is so much more important to perform a ceremony than actually do anything meaningful....
