    'Desecrated flag' video is DNC finalist

    One of the 20 finalists in health care video contest run by Barack Obama’s campaign arm features a mural of an America flag splattered with health care graffiti until it’s covered completely by black paint.

    In the video – which is accompanied by the sound of a heart monitor pumping and then flat-lining – words such as “pre-existing conditions,” “homeless” and “death panel” ultimately obliterate the flag, which reappears on screen seconds later with the words “Health Will Bring Our Country Back to Life” on the blue field where the 50 stars usually are.

    According to the Organizing for American Web site, the 20 finalists in the “Health Reform Video Challenge” were chosen by a panel of “qualified” Democratic National Committee “employee judges.”

    A contestant whose video didn’t make the final-20 cut complains that a video “defacing the flag” won’t do much to help President Barack Obama or the Democrats sell health care reform.

    “They should never pick that,” said the contestant, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “It makes the Democrats look really, really bad.”

    I understand the overall point and, while i don't feel that way about healthcare, I think it's a solid point to make.

    However - I am completely offended that the president is supporting something that depicts defacement of the flag. That's just vile, he should defend the flag, not promote desecration of it ... and that's all I'll say becaues if I continue I'll be banned.

    Oh I think he has, or at the very least knows about it....Remember it is HIS administration that has a possibly illegal alliance with the NEA to promote this sort of thing......

    What is the overall point? "America sucks" if it doesn't have universal health care?

    The overall point is that *some say* that America won't be united until we are all cared for equally by the government...I understand what they feel but I don't support it or think it's a legitimate arguement for revamping healthcare.

    I see.....Isn't it sad to watch the making of a drone society?

    We'll have to give it a good name ... like "Marxism" ... just off the top of my head, it has a nice ring to it.

    He can multi-task.

    He can play a game of BBall and swing a club at the same time - because that's IN his paygrade.
