Do you seriously not know what plagiarism is? I'll even add emphasis for you.
1.the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work.
2.something used and represented in this manner.
His entire OP was clearly grabbed from free republic...go look at the link yourself. He gave no credit...tried to pass it off as his own little "discovery"...and has been called on it.
Now...since you like to talk about side stepping a question...answers me this. Do you think Obama was the "First Ever" to do this???

Quite a rant,does it offend you that much when someone disagrees,chill out slick,its just a piece of cloth..........right.
Some of us don't see it that way and would imagine most solders see the flag as a representation of there country for witch some die for.
If I had remembered one of your post about "Obama is prez,get over it" I would not have replyed to your comment,all you Obama bootlickers are like minded.I don't think you hate America,just use it for all its worth and complaine.

Hmmm, that is exactly how the left want everyone to think. It's just a piece of cloth. We are a world united. We should have no borders. Blah blah blah.
NO my friend, it is NOT just a piece of cloth. It represents the blood shed and lives lost to establish this country and to maintain its freedom since.
Here is yet another first for the “historic President.” One thing that few people noticed while Obama gave his press conference at the White House last week was missing. The American Flag! Progressive liberal’s can’t use the excuse of “lack of time in planning” because this press conference was known about nearly a week before it occurred.
Behind him was just yellow curtains, and a couple of gold columns with chandeliers, but no American flag! A poster at Free Republic researched and looked at all photos of many press conferences (not press briefings) of past presidents. What the poster found was Obama is the only President to not have an American Flag or flags standing proudly behind or off to the side.

The stars and stripes have come along way from their original hand-made creations. Both nylon and polyester fabrics are stitched into the alternating red and white stripes and embroidered white stars on the navy blue ground. Cotton is still used too and can be found stitched and embroidered with the official 13 stripes and 50 white stars. In some cases, manufacturers may use the embroidery or sewing services of other local companies to achieve the finished product. These pieces are collected and assembled in the manufacturer's own facilities and shipped from there to fulfill customers orders. Screen printed versions exist but are usually created for political or patriotic events where carrying a large flag would be cumbersome. What is the American flag made of?
