By God we finally have a true American in here. I stand and salute you as I type this note. My eyes are swollen in tears as I see your true patriotism. May God bless and keep those Walmart disability checks coming in.

I wish I knew how to post pictures on here. I'm at Myrtle Beach and saw the most horrible use of American flag swim trunks...ever.
Of course I took a pic and tweeted it...duh!

That's not a flag. I would say about half the pictures being posted are not flags.

The US flag and having stars and stripes/bars are not the same. It actually denotes this in the flag use guidelines.

The funniest part about this obsession(when it becomes one) i.e. the ascribing of attributes of a living thing to the U.S. Flag should be recognized as idolatry by most religious folks.

unchellmatt: I always love that about Tea Bagger rallies. People with American flag hats, ties, tshirts, shorts... "We love America! That's why we defame the flag!"


The difference is that "flag hats", "flag ties", "flag tshirts", and "flag shorts", and even "flag underwear" don't use an actual flag, they use a roll of blue field with white stars and a roll of red and white, or they screen-print blue and red on to a bit of white cloth roughly cut to the shape and size that it's going to be used for.

Believe me, I will not defend the Tea Party for their questionable political conclusions, but I won't demonize them for something that's not actually wrong.

Taking an actual flag and using it in fashion other than flying it or displaying it folded in its case or draping it over a coffin is wrong.

Nobody's son or daughter died for an actual flag either.  It's symbolic.  People getting butthurt over the use of a flag and not a tablecloth shaped like a flag are being pedantic.

For all the decorative uses it's put to, the American flag sure is ugly as hell. Glaring colors, sh*t design. It makes for a rather ugly standard as well.

The Japanese naval ensign is the greatest flag ever designed.

LibertyHiller: Last time I was "home" for Independence Day (as in "where I fled from at the earliest possible moment") was about five years ago, and my sister made one of these:

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 616x462]

Being the dork that I am, I pointed out that she was several stars short; she answered that if she punched me in the right spot, I'd see the remaining stars but wouldn't be able to count them.

/+1; would devour again
//love my sis; she tolerates me, and that's what families are all about


lol, love her quick-witted response.

That looks excellent -- as long as the whipped part and shortcake underneath are tasty (made from scratch, preferably -- what those berries deserve!)

I typed out about 15 different replies to you, but I'm going to go with this:

No. Even my biatch calculator has a limit. I love me some biatches, even crazy ones. But I did some Mapquesting, drank a little, and thought "nope".

So no.

Note - Too drunk to type correctly - Yep, I'm a Farker.

Mad Magizene did a flag way back in the '70s.

Whoa - Thats a big link - Not good. (No - I never learned hot links)
( Do a picture search for "mad magazine flag" and you'll find it").

Anyway - Today issues - You ain't seen nothing.
In my day - Abby Hoffman in a AM Flag shirt was = OMG!

Now days - Anything with the Flag on it = How can you disrespect?

Personally I consider any wearing of anything that looks like a flag to be disrespectful.

This is all just another example of how political correctness is ruining the country.  Just grow some thicker skin and get over it.

So I guess if someone wore a shirt that had a picture of someone burning a flag it would be a double negative and be ok?

There's a difference between using a flag design on an article of clothing. Stars and stripes are not a flag. HGTV suggested using an actual flag, not a tablecloth with a stars and stripes design. Completely different.

Pretty much this. I love patriots that don't know the flag code.

Just a little too scared to come out of the closet. Maybe a few more TP rallies all dolled up and he'll have the courage to wear his stars in the Pride parade.
