For those that say the flag is special (and I think it is), why is it plastered on everything, from Budweiser (foreign owned) to bikinis (made in
But hey, thats what happens with free speech.
I think there is a difference between a reference to the flag, ie; bikinis, bunting, streamers, etc, and putting a slit down the middle of a real flag
and wearing it like a poncho like some other Hollywood type did last year or the year before, or purposely stepping on it.,
I understand that you fought for this man's right to speak freely, but you also fought for mine; and I say he's a dirtbag, and if he ever did
disrespected the flag around me I would make him wish he hadn't.
There a difference also between having the right to do a thing, and doing the right thing. Just because you can do something doesn't automatically
make it OK.,

And the difference iiiiiisssss what?
You haven't fought for this country, yet you'll speak over someone who has that disagrees with you. And the worst part is, you're trying to decide
for us what is right and what is wrong.
What gives you that sense of entitlement? Your own delusion and arrogance. That's it. Period.
Not everyone agrees with every war campaign America takes part of, and it doesn't mean we're not patriots. It just means that some people value logic
and reason over blind faith.
Personally, I think many veterans are just young kids trying to go to college who are fairly ignorant as to why they're going to war. And I also
think people who think their "belief" justifies the terrible decisions they make are morons.
I'll do anything to any flag I want, even one with 50 stars and some red, white, and blue dye on it. Don't like it? Think it's wrong? That's your
opinion, and just because you think it's "right" in an ethical way doesn't make you "right" in any objective way.
In my opinion your beliefs are just plain ignorant and wrong, and if you want to force them down my throat you can just shove it.
