    You shouldn't be so cynical, especially with an avatar like that.

    Apparently you value the ritual quite a bit if you have such strong opinions about it. Valuing ritual is a good thing. You should work to change the Pledge, not deny its value. Otherwise you are acting like the fox in Aesop's Fox and the Grapes.

    I also find it hilarious that the picture you used as satire is from a "Support Our Troops" rally.
    You sure it wasn't a counter protest to the Westboro Baptist Church. Those people come up with some funny signs.

    Overall, it is very disrespectful towards the flag.

    Personally, I feel that she has every right to be disrespectful to the flag if she wants to.
    But she is NOT being disrespectful to the flag. That flag on the front of her bus is showing her patriotism.

    Apparently you are trying to attribute something to me that is not the case, symbolism, and now by extension as the conversation goes on ritual really seem to be primitive throwback behaviors that are borderline superstitious to me. They seriously make little sense to me. I also feel that they dilute that which they are representing

    Read the first sentence again.





    Again, where is that distinction made? I did not see it.



    Both of those are also disrespectful, but I would say they are not as disrespectful because they are not being pelted by insects.
    Ok if the code is referring to painted pictures of flags, lapel pens, etc. then where are the instructions to dispose of them properly. They give instructions of what to do with an old, damaged, flags.

    American flag - Definition | WordIQ.com
    The approved method of destroying old and tattered flags consists of burning them in a simple ceremony. The flag is cut into three pieces: first a horizontal cut is made between the seventh and eighth stripes, then a vertical cut separating the star field from the seven shorter stripes. Then the three pieces are typically placed on a pyre as 'Taps' is played
    The flag code is for FLAGS, not images of the red white and blue.

    Unless it was made from a flag, she is a patriot.
