Once again, not having a flag next to him on stage is disrespect?

Where do you people come up with this crap? Like I said before, our Founding Fathers would be retching if they saw this is how our country has become.

One that views that you're not an American if you don't have a flag next to you, or on you, as was the case of the flag pin people...

To see the president on stage so close to Memorial Day weekend without the very symbol of this great nation of ours, the flag, which drapes the coffins of the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country, so we could sit here and converse, is disheartening at the very least.

That's where us people get this crap.

Did you know that on Memorial Day we honor our fallen heros?

So, the fact that Obama spoke about Memorial Day, about how he's honored for the men and women who serve in the military, about how he commemorates the soldiers who have died defending our nation.

You're telling me that's all null and void because he didn't have the flag next to him...?

*Slams his head against the forum.*

Stop... Knock it off, all of you who are attacking him because of this. It's cheap. It's so overtly dumb that you would attack him because he gives a passionate speech on Memorial Day, but it means nothing since they didn't have a flag out there.

Though, you are wrong, since he was wearing an American flag pin on his suit. But really, even if he wasn't, I don't get where having a flag next to you means you're a real American...

A statement like this shows(me anyway)you belive in nothing,the flag is a symbol of freedom to most Americans and we would like to think that the president is proud enough to want to display it.


Thanks. You are wrong, by the way. This shows me that you cannot answer my simple question.

Is it too tough? Too logical? Too simple? Why is it causing your brain to misfire to the point where you have to manufacture a profile of me based on so very little.

I believe in many many things. I just know that if the flag is not present, my freedoms still are. Liberty and all the things that should make America great do not RELY on a flag to exist. If they did, matches could take it all away. To say otherwise is so completely disrespectful of the REAL things that flag stands for it makes me sick.



This whole post is nothing more then a chance for America haters and foriegners to beat up on the U.S.How sad.



That is an idiotic thing to say. The suggest that I hate America should require some evidence, don't ya think?

Tell you what. Go tell any soldier currently on AD and tell them that they are not fighting for ideals but for the cloth that represents those ideals. Tell me how they respond.

Yeah, we get what the flag represents, but apparently, you don't get that the President himself ALSO represents, and leads our great nation. He is the symbol of our country, just as much as a friggin flag! The flag may not be there to 'represent' our country, so instead, the leader of our nation is there. What, do you not understand who Obama represents? Get over yourself!

Oh, and what kind of button is that on the left side of his suit? OMG, can it be!?!? Is it the flag?

Yeah, and when Memorial Day gets here, we should all do that.

I have NEVER applied the appelation of 'President' to Obama, and never will, unless I make some sort of epic goof, which is always a possibility. He shouldn't feel entirely left out, though. I've never called Carter a 'President' either, probably for entirely different reasons.

Neither do I stress Obama's middle name, even though I have no problem with doing so. If he has issues with such usage, I'm sure it's within his power to have it legally changed.

I do, however, gather a good deal of entertainment out of those who insist on making that an issue.

That's funny......I'll give you a star for that.

But seriously, if we can't even agree on decorum, how could we possibly be able to accomplish anything? It sort of makes me think that Washington is beyond repair.

You're right. The president is just as much as a friggin flag. I'll sleep better at night knowing that. But I was hoping he'd be so much more.

If the man is the symbol, how can the symbol be not the man?

This thread has been debunked. I don't know why they haven't moved it to the HOAX forum, though. Reagan, Bush and even JFK have had press conferences without a flag.

PICTURES HERE

21 pages of crying about Obama not having a flag... This thread epitomizes what's wrong with ATS these days. :shk: What a waste of energy. The OP loses ALL credibility with me because he's not even able to admit that he was wrong or that he got the story from Free Republic. :shk:

No...in fact ,the the citizen soldiers of the soi disant Confederate States of America ceceded from the United States of America...so ,in fact they were not US citizens,or Americans...


Ok. If that is admitted, then the following cannot apply:


to honor them for treason,sedition and fratricide...no that is not appropriate.


Those crimes can only be committed against one's own country. If, as you say above, Confederates were not US citizens (and I agree with that), then they can no more have committed the listed crimes than using those same charges to indict soldiers of any one of the Allied powers in WWII as having committed them against the German government, or vice versa.

You can call him or not call him whatever you want. He was duly elected president and he IS the president. I might not agree with everything he or congress does, but I'd rather him be in charge than the (almost) Ghost and Mrs. Spewer. (That would McCain/Palin, for those of you who don't get vague, bad humor).

Great Post- the only occasions when you have no flags- drawing from historical times- is when you concede defeat in a war. Wonder what war is Obama conceding ?

There are pictures of several other presidents speaking without flags posted in this thread.

What wars were they conceding defeat in? Can you list them all? Can you list any?

Been to Free Republic lately?

www.freerepublic.com...


So not only is it a HOAX...it is plagarism as well.

But nothing will be done about it...because it seems ATS allows lies, plagarism, and the trashing of the TOS as long as it is bashing Obama.

Dissapointed is an understatement.


Can someone explain to me how this is plagarism? You do know what plagarism is, right?

Desperation to squelch a thread that has to go to the lengths of mislabelling and misrepresenting is very telling.

well Freedom well the Evil Doer Prez before Obama Allowed the Patriot Act to take ( Privacy Freedoms Away ) to come in place the beginning of a Orwellian Nation all because of National Security did not do their job with all the millions of tax payers money it had at the time ! ( NSA ) Reaction time is a Factor Unfortunately it wasn't in September 11th 2001

Speaking of the 4 Planes
The Planes taken over by box cutters ( Utility Knifes! ) I don't by it
George Carlin said it best why use a Box Cutter when you can Order a Steak and the Stewardess will hand you a Steak knife !!!!!

The Day After 911 and then on it looked like memorial day every day for awhile then it faded back to the Usual Everyday in America

To me 911 it was a Remake of Pearl Harbor ! with National Security not doing the job then ..

with Pearl Harbor with having The Aircraft carriers ( i think there was 3 of them ) and the state of the art Subs? at the time Battle Ships & Escorts and leaving out on a Friday (2 days out ) and leaving the Older Ships in the Ports ! why for what
Conspiracy ?

anyway the only time i Would Display the Flag is Memorial Day, Time a REAL WAR not a Invading Police Action , A National Holiday like 4th of July!! or National Tragedy
or Some National Celebration Home Coming
This is from a Former Marine ! and we all know about How Marines Honor the American Flag

I can care less if the Flag is NOT present Around a President or any other politician

When Memorial Day Comes that is this Monday !! of this year 2010
I would see why people will be in a Uproar ! if The American Flag is not Around the President but that is only i would see the problem


Here is a Video of what is mostly what i am talking about
From Pearl Harbor To 9/11: False Flags - Government Provocations Part 1

Come on, he made sure he didn't have a American flag behind him so he wouldn't offend any foreign countries.

Hmmm, at first i figured the people that didn't care were just Obama supporters and of course they were going to stand up for him and say it's not a big deal.

Then I thought about how if my Canadian Prime Minister (who i absolutely do not support) had a press conference without a Canadian Flag present I really couldn't care less.

I don't think it's a big deal at all, seems like people that hate Obama will grab onto anything to try and make him look worse. Which I think in the end does way more harm to they're cause then good.

So in previous times of crisis, all the other Prisidents were wondering around
saying, can't talk right now I have to find a Flag, any body got flag come on
somebody's gotta have a flag, any size just gimmie a God D#mn Flag.

And that's when the message: Due to Technical Difficulties the Scheduled
Presidents Message will not be sgown.


Maybe I'm just Crazy, but I don't think I am and my Therapist aggrees with
me.
