What is wrong with those people? Is it something in the water?
It's that we don't screw chickens or our cousins
I missed this part. I see where she deemed the flag as inappropriate and offensive. But supporting respect of it? Where did you see this posted at?
In July 2003 President Bush autographed a small flag. This picture was circulated across the Internet noting its violation of the Flag Code: "The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature."
I think this is ridiculous, hands down. If freedom of speech doesn't let you draw a picture of an American Flag, then what the hell can you do. Nothing, apparently, that goes against the established politcal party's agenda - which is the whole reason freedom of speech exists in the first place, TO CHALLENGE THE STANDING POLITICAL PARTY.
What don't you understand about it wasn't the drawing of the American Flag that was the problem. It was the desecration of that flag by writing a motto on it.
