    What? An American flag is not a Crescent Moon or a Peace Sign; it's an American flag.

    Stop being cute, what's your point?

    If one person is allowed to post a symbol on their locker why shouldn't other people be allowed to post the symbol of their choice?

    Here we go again impuning heros. Just like the boy scout in the other thread I see a pattern forming. Let's start standing them against the wall for putting a sticker of an American flag on their locker, with a real flag fluttering in the wind outside the building. Redress, you're losing credibility fast, really fast. Make me want to puke how liberals hide behind regulations to spew their hate while defending the dismantalization of the Constitution. Hypocrites all of them.

    I think some people feel that this is the United States of America, and our flag should not be offensive to anyone who chooses to live here, even immigrants.

    I agree they are genuflecting on the symbol. And I really have no problem with a symbol being posted on the locker American Flag or any other flag or symbol.

    You can't be serious... Did you just equivocate the American flag as any other symbol? So, what, is it no different than the swastika?

    The American flag is not just another symbol.

    That is just silly and absurd. Symbols actually mean things, and while your education has no doubt told you 'everyone is special in their own unique and individual way,' the fact is: it doesn't work that way.

    Actually my education is in studio art where we study symbols extensively.

    Thus, you realize there is a difference between an American flag and a Crescent Moon?
