Erh...check yer facts pal! The other countries in your much vaunted 'Union' were robbed of their emblem and had it strapped to that english rag whether they liked it or not!
ENGLISH financial interests encouraged and abbetted the current inflow of immigrants that are so unhappy with yer wee flag!
As it stands now, Im more than happy for you to wave yer wee red cross as your own, as we certainly have the right to display ours...
...Oh wait a minute, Your national anthem....the racist one that clearly states encouraging the crushing of the scottish race? Nah...stuff yer flag!
Rather not mention Ireland? I can see why off course!
Because the sole causeof the current 'troubles' was Charles II policy of surplanting the indigenouse irish catholic population, with new english and scottish farmers. When it wasnt going too well, the great Oliver Cromwell laid waste to the country, slaughtering men women and children as gods work!
Yer Queens a Kraut.
Yer countries run by the tribe.
Yer being flooded by the rest of countries ye shagged for years.
And you have the audacity to come on here feigning empathy with the USA, who if you remember you also tried to shag till they slapped you back.
Get back in your hole REDCOAT!!!
I'm newer here, but I think you guys are making a perfect case as to why the flag should be banned. The amount of times violence against "flag banners" has been hinted at in this thread is scary.
This is the exact reason that the flag SHOULD be banned. Calling for violence against someone because of an insult to a flag is ridiculous

Looks to me like a completely, manufactured news item. One probably only desighned to push up news ratings, so they can continue with an even more lame "news" (propaganda) service.
I'm sure these "statistical facts" (comissioned by the defender of jouranilism, no other than Fox News itself) will have made just about any American, who thinks of themselves as American (i.e. guessing) (about 80 percent) completely outraged.

I dont buy this that the results were skewed. Yes I have seen the post by Libertygal and those people voted as per their wish. The results speak for themselves. If the results were in your favor it's all right if it's not they are manipulated lol..complete hypocrisy. You can blame anyone you want too thats what people do when they find things are not in their favor blame others.
And I voted yes because it's just a symbol the real sense in being American isnt material. I cannot understand the 26.6% who voted NO they want to put the kids life in danger over some material which is most probably made in China. To the hell with that...I will vote yes everytime a poll like that comes up.

And FOX never skews things into inflammatory, incendiary, yellow journalism, does it?
Now that the pea brains & brainless are all excited . . .
The advertisers have gotten maximum viewers
and idiots have mistaken the Constitutional United States with a piece of cloth.
I don't really care too much about the flag,
I DO care about the United States & how it is run.
Not just another plastic & silicone brain-dead pseudo-patriot.

It's a flag. It is a piece of died cloth used by governments to screw over the peasants. As an American, if I had to identify the biggest problem of America, I would say it is our undying worship of inanimate objects.
Oh voted Yes on that poll because it's on Fox News and because I can.
