    Re: Students Wearing American Flag Shirts Sent Home

    All this hiding behind "Flag Code" and etiquette. wondering if someone could point me to the section in the code where burning and stomping on a flag in protest is listed as acceptable in the code?

    Law?


    Are you sure it's illegal to adorn an old navy shirt with an American flag motiff?

    i am absolutely it is not illegal
    just as it is not illegal to burn the flag
    it is a violation of flag etiquette to wear the flag as part of one's costume
    and of course, so is the burning of the American flag a breach of flag etiquette

    Who said it is acceptable flag etiquette to burn the flag (outside what is already in the code of disposing of a flag that is)?

    So then are you equally outraged over burning of the flag when you see it in protest?

    Oh, I was confused about your "compliance" with the law of the land comment....




    I don't remember you having this much or a problem in 2004....

    Not really in this conversation, but you reminded me of something some years ago. A student got up to give a speech and started ripping a Bible. It offended a good number of people, no surprise really. But the interesting thing was that the point of his speech was that too many people cared about the artifact, the book itself, and not enough about the words contained in the book. Some think he proved his point, but few ever heard what he was saying.

    The Flag is a symbol, important as such, but we should never lose what it symbolizes for the sake of the symbol.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    To be fair, I wasn't hiding behind a 'flag code'...

    I was siting the more relevant-- "Don't be a dick" code.

    The goofballs in the U.S. flag shirts and bandannas are, however, hiding their dickishness behind "I just wanted to show my patriotism."
