    I would defend to my death the right of a hippie to burn a flag in protest, but I sure as hell wouldn't shake his hand.
    I don't disagree with what you said but I don't believe what you said really relates to what I said either

    This was one of the top 20 finalists on Obama's website at one point.

    I count three flag code violations:
    exposure to the elements
    use in advertising
    writing on the flag

    Pretty egregious if you ask me.

    a law that cannot be enforced nor is enforced makes a mockery of other laws and our system of laws

    Nonsense. The flag code makes no claims to be a criminal statute. It's a useful reference tool for those of us who want to respect the flag.

    It is enforceable in a de facto way. The shame of a violation should be penalty enough.

    Anyone tells me to my face that wearing my favorite t shirt, with the American flag, is unpatriotic and disrespectful, is gonna get slammed upside their dumb ass head.

    Unless your favorite t-shirt is a uniform for a patriotic organization, you are in violation flag code by using an image of a flag as wearing apparel.

    Look, Whovian, it doesn't make you unpatriotic, or intentionally disrespectful, because you didn't know any better. But it is still a violation.
