    This is a non issue, like so many others.
    I don't care if she copped a squat on a flag.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Well I love my country and I love the flag, but clearly manifesting that love by wearing flag boxers is a breach of that etiquette.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    What about flag condoms?

    Well, that country that you love has promulgated a set of rules governing proper etiquette towards to that flag you love. You should probably follow those rules to show your love, shouldn't you?

    People manifest love in their own different ways, and not always according to the rules, that's all I'm sayin.

    It's a recommendation, not a damnable offense. It's a piece of cloth that some people decided to put way too much symbolism into.
