Government Fromage: What about flag toilet paper? That's still ok isn't it?
Bucky Katt: Government Fromage: What about flag toilet paper? That's still ok isn't it?patriots just tear off bits of the flag to wipe their asses
tbeatty: Subby is confused over the flag burning/wearing/adorning and those that honor it. Draping coffins of the latter is acceptable, too.
fusillade762: Instead of recommending the use of a flag as a tablecloth, HGTV ought to have directed viewers to one of the many flag-inspired tableclothsSo when is it A flag vs being "flag-inspired"? What's the difference, exactly?
Petit_Merdeux: This is an outrage!A real patriot only flies a flag on a flag pole!/and leaves it out in the dark//and the rain
Egoy3k: Come to Canada if you want to see flags being treated poorly.

99.998er: Let's say an ultra hot Brazilian chick desecrates the American flag by wearing an American themed flag on a thong bikini on a beach in Rio. When does the bombing start?
Fart_Machine: Pray 4 Mojo: Fart_Machine: It's symbolic.What is it symbolic of?So you believe people literally die for the flag and not what it represents. Well OK then.
Pray 4 Mojo: /I need to start cross referencing for Politics greens that make it to the main page.

nytmare: SirEattonHogg: I noticed the OSHA safety poster in our break room is laminated in plastic.Based on HGTV's reasoning, I suppose I could use that for a table place mat next time I eat in there.To crush your peppers, season your burgers before you, and eat upon the laminations of your safety posters.

Jim_Callahan: Pray 4 Mojo: Fart_Machine: It's symbolic.What is it symbolic of?Um, it's sybolic shorthand for the nation called "The United States of America", it's our primary national sign for naval signage in particular and international interaction in general.If you're asking about the specifics of the design itself, we pulled from basically the color references and iconography of contemporary European naval ensigns, with special attention to the ensign of the East India company. So it's something of a reference to our history as a British colony (or set of, rather), though that's really secondary to just having an easily-memorized symbol that can clearly be recognized by another ship passing a mile or two off with only a spyglass if that.You can essentially think of a flag as being equivalent to a nation's name, insulting it is sort of the equivalent of someone coming up to you and telling you that the whole Mojo family throughout history were and still are nothing but thieves and whores including your wife and children. Perhaps you're cool-headed enough to brush that kind of thing off, but you can see where some people would react poorly, even if the remarks were an inadvertent implication (I don't think the tablecloth thing was INTENDED to be insulting, so it's just someone casually implying that your wife trades sexual favors for cash on a regular basis without quite realizing it, maybe).
Fart_Machine: That's more effort than I would have given an obvious troll but you've summed it up nicely.
