    It's a representation of the flag. I'd like to see someone try to run it up flagpole.

    But an American flag, just the same. Yes? It has the same meaning; same symbolism; deserves the same amount of respect.

    It is given the same reverence and respect as the flag, but it is not a flag.

    Which was my point earlier in the thread.



    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Therefore the same respect and reverence should have been given to the highway mural?

    As long as it has 50 stars and 13 stripes and you don't do a half-assed job of it, be my guest. I think you would do better by painting on the side of my shop, there are too many trees around the house.

    Re: Freeway Flag - Display Of Patriotism Or Graffiti?

    I really don't care if one way or another about this, or any other graffiti. However, I think taking it down or not should be done in accordance with public opinion, since it is public property. If the majority of the public is okay with the "graffiti", as long as it isn't lewd or obscene (and even if it is, but the vast majority of the public wants it), then it should stay. I think a good way to handle a situation like this is to let the public (in the area) vote on whether to take it down or not, if it is not actually causing a public disturbance. In this case, it most likely wasn't since it was up for 8 years.
