I saw this story come across on Twitter this morning:
Which conservatives have their face substituted for the stars on the flag? They should all follow the code. But just wearing the flag is not so bad as compared to destroying it.
"Resist, we much. Weï»¿ must, and we much. About that, be committed."
When Obama didn't wear a flag pin, there was a BIG stink. http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1779544,00.html Here's my personal code. The flag is a flag. Carefully run a well maintained flag up a flagpole (don't let it touch the ground). Take it down at dusk (and fold it properly) or see that it's well lit. Don't leave it out in the rain, hail, sleet, or snow.
And do NOT wear the flag in any form; matters not whether it's a pin or some combination of stars, stripes, and colors. That's what I grew up with on military installations both in CONUS and overseas. Part of my "programming" to inwardly cringe when people drop those little hand carried flags on the ground. Ditto seeing somebody wear the flag, even a pin. If the flag is part of one's military uniform insignia, that's fine. As part of civilian garb, nope.
""Which conservatives have their face substituted for the stars on the flag? ""
None that I know of. But you know what this Obama flag reminds me of?
""Reminds me of the tea party folks who put their symbol on the American flag or a president who signed the flag""
Sorry, but putting a leader's face in place of part of the flag and what you are refering to, is not an apt comparison. These countries did that to exhalt
When outward forms and symbols take on more emphasis than the principles for which they stand, something is wrong. Badly wrong. Horribly wrong. The president is a civilian, deliberately so. He does not wear a uniform, deliberately so. The outcry over whether he wore a pin was a prime example of my first paragraph. And the flag, not to belabor the point but it seems to be flying right over the heads of others (pun intended), was taken down.
